Serbian term or phrase: udomica
Kod Roma je udomica žena koja napusti svog muža i vrati se da živi roditeljskoj kući. Negativnu konotaciju ima, to je nešto što je sramota, i trebalo bi ponovo da se uda što pre.

Da li postoji bar nešto približno na engleskom?

disagree  Daryo: your first ref is about wives returning to Japan , NOT to their parents// the second one is behind a paywall // more important: this would be interpreted as a wife returning to her husband, the exact opposite of "udomica"

agree  Natasa Stankovic: Mislim da je to svakako „približno na engleskom“ - kako je kolega Dušan i tražio.
