Circassians consider it shameful to see a woman, even a stranger, cutting wood or pulling water, without rushing to help by cutting her wood themselves or pulling her water bucket. Woman enjoys a high status among Circassians: They respect her, seek her advice, and make her lead in social functions. It is rare for a young man to get engaged to a girl before knowing her mother.  Another proverb says: "You have to know the mother before you get engaged to the girl".
