I have a Greek Cypriot friend who married a maronite. Two questions 1) since they are a minority in Cyprus and in all the countries they live in, do they have any misgivings about allowing their kids to marry outside of the Maronite culture and does this differ among males and females. 2) are Maronites both orthodox or catholic or only catholic?

No mate, but I have a maronite customer if that helps... :?

One time he showed me his summer photos of a family trip they took to visit St Maron before all the troubles begun.

:lol:

GR is a Cypriot nationalist.
One of a very few.

Call him what you want, but his allegiance to the motherland has never wavered.
Miltiades is another one, but unfortunately they don't see eye to eye.
