Even the Greek Constitution guarantees freedom of faith, but defines the "prevailing religion" of Greece as the Eastern Orthodox Church of Christ.Most Greeks, whether deeply religious or not, revere and respect the Orthodox Christian faith, attend church, observe major religious holiday and are emotionally attached to Orthodox Christianity as their "national" religion.
The Greek Family The Greek society consists of close-knit families where important social organizations have gradually evolved from the idea of family.
The institution of marriage also plays an important role in society.
The family offers both financial and emotional support to its members and family relationships carry over into business with nepotism largely seen as something acceptable.
It is very common for relatives to work for the same company because Greeks prefer to do business with those they know and trust.
During the second half of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century, Greece saw monarchies and ousting of royalty, fierce political fights, assassinations, and dictatorships, wars that added neighboring territories and new population, but also brought economic devastation and poverty.
After the defeat of Germany and the end of World War II, Greece joined NATO in 1952 and experienced a bitter civil war between communist and anticommunist forces.As the Greek say, Orthodoxy is less an institution than a sentiment, expressed by the population and by the public powers.Muslims, Jewish and Roman Catholic are the other religious groups of Greece.In August 1974 Greek forces withdrew from the integrated military structure of NATO in protest against the Turkish occupation of northern Cyprus. In 1981, Greece joined the EC (now the EU) and became the 12th member of the Eurozone in 2001.It successfully hosted the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens.In 1967, a group of military officers seized power, establishing a military dictatorship that suspended many political liberties and forced the king to flee the country.In 1974, democratic elections and a referendum created a parliamentary republic and abolished the monarchy.The family's prestige often rests on the woman's ability to carry out her household duties properly.Frequent communication and assistance between the two adult generations and children and youth are also very common for Greek families.Although family life has changed considerably with the transition from the traditional rural-agricultural life into an urban industrial-modern system, to these days women and particularly mothers in Greece play the most important family roles.The man is the family's outside representative, enjoying the social prestige and esteem, but the woman traditionally was and is the organizer of the household, the mediator in family disputes, and the guardian of the family's unity.
