If you’re particularly sentimental, you’ll probably frame getting married as a way to spend the rest of your life with your soul mate. Can’t argue with that, but what those lovely-dovey optimists don’t note is that getting married is also a way to really dig into another person’s psyche and discover all kinds of weird things you’d rather not know.
This phenomenon is particularly exacerbated when you marry someone from a different culture. See where I’m going here?
Basically, Russian Women. Russian women who try to find a husband abroad are different from the rest of Russian females. They have heightened requirements towards men and living standards. Usually, it comes with better education and life experience.
As much as I love Russian people, there are some aspects of marrying someone born in the USSR that is just frustrating. These reasons are sure to convince to marry your dog before a Russian woman.
They are too beautiful for you. The dedication that Russian women have to look beautiful is just scary. For the majority of them life is like a podium, and so they have to look sparkling even on the way to get a newspaper or to walk the dog. You will typically find a Russian woman wearing high heels to the mall. (Find me in Nike Frees). The worst thing is that if you are going out with a Russian girl you will either have to dress up and put a lot of effort in looking nice, or everyone will be looking at you and wondering, how did a pretty lady like her end up with that slob? Trust me, you don’t want that. To make a bad thing even worse, some russian bride dating sites are nothing more than your typical sex dating site simply featured some “russian” women.
You will rip your hair out over visa issues. Marrying a foreigner always comes with a lot of legal issues – marrying a Russian makes everything that much worse. A quick trip to Europe? Not without the hassle and expense of getting a visa. Travel becomes a constant Google search of where your visa regimes overlap. Annoying!
Loyalty is not a thing. A Russian girl will be your most devoted friend, your best advisor, critic and even your doctor if you are sick. Ladies in Russia are caring and tender, and whatever happens, they will be by your shoulder ready to face any trouble together. A Russian woman truly believes that her partner is the best person on the planet, the most talented, the strongest, and the smartest. And if she believes she is the queen, she’d only choose the king and treat him like the king.
Russians do not have saving accounts. As an American I learned that spending money without saving is a negative thing and even if I can’t manage to save at the moment, I should always keep it in mind. Russians, for the most part, do not embrace that line of thinking, instead having a more day-to-day, in-the-moment financial plan. The struggle between spend v. save cultures can be incredibly frustrating when you’re setting up a (financial) life together.
Her family will never leave you alone. When you live with your parents well into adulthood overbearing mothers and pushy grandmother’s will seem more apparent. When it comes to hospitality, all Russians tend to become unreasonable and overfeed their guests until it is hard to move, and who wants to gain all that weight? Prevent the sneaky pounds creeping up on you by avoiding all Russian women. And don’t forget the initiation: the dad will most likely test you at some point. Your Russian family will have no problem butting into your business: your eating habits, your uterus, and your finances? All up for discussion. Take a deep breath and try to ignore them.
Her high expectations. Russian women are very demanding. They don’t want just a guy who will love them madly. They want the best man alive to love them madly. Good old manners are crucial: you are expected to open doors, help to put on coats, bring flowers when you go on a date. If you are not a gentleman, it is not even worth trying.
And the weirdest thing about Russian women you wonder?
Russians have an irrational fear of cold things. For people with such a strong interest in science, many Russians seem to have no idea how the body works.
Russians hate when they feel ignored and are getting a lack of attention. Men, this means less free time for you. Don’t marry a Russian, and you’ll have all the free time in the world.
