Families in Denmark


Tall strong handsome Scandinavians attract the attention of women all over the world, and strong and elegant Danes are amazing housewives and purposeful natures. Danish families are very strong, and may resemble a little in their principles of family relations the families of the countries of the East.

In Denmark, they are also respectful and jealous of their parents and family ties. During the holidays, the whole family gathers at one table. From childhood, children are taught to grow up with deep respect for the older generation and their parents.

Denmark lives as if by the clock, any ordinary things can be done here in a matter of minutes, even, for example, finding a book in a huge library is not difficult, you just need to use a computer that will instantly find what you need. With their punctuality and clarity of life, they resemble soldiers walking towards their exact goal.

The relationship between a man and a woman in Denmark has been tested for a very long time. A couple can live with each other for several years and only then get married. Basically, marriages in Denmark are concluded closer to the 30 years of the spouses, and even much later.

Danes believe that marriage should be the only time in a lifetime and for a lifetime, and therefore there are a lot of single people in Denmark. People try to fill their loneliness by visiting various clubs, additional training courses.

Children leave the parental home when they reach the age of 18 and are considered to be independent people who create their own lives. Danish laws, which make it possible to solve housing issues even for children aged 15, enable young people to quickly acquire their own housing.

Already at the age of 14-15, children are put on a waiting list for separate housing, which they can receive very quickly, even after 1-2 years. However, despite leaving home so early, children always maintain the warmest and friendliest relationships with their parents and their other relatives.

Danish families are distinguished by the fact that all family members always support each other in everything, and most often Danes consider relatives, brothers, sisters, uncles and aunts to be their close friends. In these families everything is solved together: repairs in the apartment, when there are cases when parents and children make repairs in children's rooms together and listen to each other's advice; travel on vacation or out of town; purchasing large items for the family.

Sometimes it may seem that children, on the contrary, are not entirely respectful of their parents, because it is not uncommon to hear rather bold advice and rude words from children towards their parents. Children seem impossibly spoiled and rude.

True, in Denmark there is a slightly different approach to raising children than we are used to seeing. The Danes believe that children need to be given more will and freedom, but when a child grows up, he will choose his own path for himself and correct himself, find his niche in life.

As a result, children in a Danish family have the same rights as adults and always communicate with their parents on an equal footing. Practice shows that really, growing up, children grow up their habits, and they already have a normal character.

Women in Denmark are not considered the weaker sex, because once the country was ruled exclusively by women and now they are used to reckoning with this. There is no division between men and women in Denmark, and there is no such thing in the family as division of the household.

All household chores are equally divided and in the kitchen you can see a man more often than a woman. Moreover, some men are very fond of embroidery or knitting.

In Denmark, there is no such thing as a housewife, and a non-working woman may be more surprising. Even if Denmark is fairly well off, both spouses will still work, and it is even considered that a woman gets tired at work much more than a man.

In Denmark, great importance is attached to their own housing. Many Danish families live in their own homes, which are more often inherited. However, if a decision is made to buy a house of their own, then the spouses take it very seriously, choose it for a long time and carefully, as they are going to live in it happily ever after for a long period of time.

First of all, a table and a flag are always bought into the house. The table symbolizes a huge, friendly and strong family, and the flag symbolizes family happiness. The spouses are also very serious about decorating the house. The Danes are very fond of making various crafts and decorations with their own hands, with which they decorate their home, which they give to relatives and friends.

In general, Danes are very fond of making gifts, and every time, after another trip to other countries, they bring souvenirs to all their relatives and friends, but, of course, they do not forget about their home, where they must bring another interesting thing.

The government in Denmark takes the problems of single mothers or fathers very seriously. If it suddenly happens that the family breaks up or an accident occurs with one of the spouses as a result of which the second spouse is left alone with the children, he immediately begins to be paid all kinds of subsidies, benefits and insurance. Government assistance is directed not only to single people with children, but also to single children.

There are practically no orphanages in Denmark, because every Danish child who has lost his family is literally immediately attached to a new family, new parents are found for them. It is not uncommon to see a child from another country in a Danish family, because childless families strive to help homeless and lonely children in every way.

Also, the Danes are very attentive to the elderly, the disabled, the homeless, who are provided with all kinds of assistance, for example: nursing homes, canteens for homeless people and shelters where they can spend the night.
