However, this issue was the centerpiece of our problems and I would really like some insight, as much as possible, on this topic. About 7 months later I thought we spent so much time together we both coined it a relationship and we've been together since.During this time I've had A LOT of issues with him. He hasn't solidified any plans for his future or life (he's not in school, doesn't have a good job, lives at home and does boyish things).
This is about whether or not love withstands the issues (such as not being Albanian, etc.) enough to want to remain together and build a life together. Because of the known traditional customs in his culture, would love have ever been enough?
Love would've been a great and important thing if the two of you were willing to work together to understand one another.
It doesn't sound like you want to deal with this individual's culture or even really this individual. They are mature adults who work hard, love their families but live their own lives and have their girlfriends or wives (Albanian or not) with them for every holiday or family gathering.
Also, if you don't ask him about these things and he's not willing to compromise as well then you're probably better off going separate ways. They do live in the United States though and have been here for several generations so perhaps they assimilated to the traditions of this country much differently than the family you are talking about.
