Marriage With A Russian Bride – Relating With Her Family
Getting a Russian bride in marriage seems to be the most fantastic thing to happen with most men of the world. But one important thing that needs to be remembered here is that Russian women are very closely attached to their families. So, even after the marriage, there is every chance that they will talk a lot about their families back home in Russia. Hence, it is a good idea for you to know your wife’s family well, if you have a Russian bride.
The many political upheavals in Russia have contributed largely to knitting their families closely. Added to that, there have been economic problems and unhealthy social conditions in the country since the Second World War. In the early nineties, Russia was almost ruined, and it is only now that things are beginning to look up there. But the strong family values ingrained at that time still persist.
During Russia’s bad times, the conditions there were so bleak that people had to even share bread with their neighbors. It was the women of the house then that helped Russian families to sail through. The pretty young Russian women of today have seen their mothers scrounging for their family’s well-being, and it is only natural that these values have rubbed off on them.
That is also the reason why Russian brides even as they are going through marriage would want their husbands to be their strong emotional and financial support. At the same time, they will not be able to easily let go of their families who they have grown up through so many problematic times. Even their aunts and grandmothers are important to them. Russian women will not hesitate in supporting the old people of their family when they retire, even if they are countries apart.
However, there is a very fortunate side to this. Due to the terrible poverty-ridden conditions that Russia has gone through, the women there have become very money conscious. They will be very sensitive to expenses, and will manage their household in a very capable manner.
If you have reservations about how your Russian bride will be after marriage, in regards to her relationship with her family, then you must certainly open up this topic before marriage. Get to know how her family conditions are, and what will happen to her mother and father when they are old and not working any more. Also, try to assess future situations such as when her parents are old and there is no one to look after them. Ask her what she will do at such times.
The common idea in people’s minds whenever a Russian woman marries a foreign husband is that she is after the man’s money and a better lifestyle. But this is not necessarily true. Though living in a western country will give the Russian bride a good life after marriage, they are not always looking for such improvements in lifestyle. If Russian woman love someone, it is to death, and the same is true, whether the man is from her own country, or foreign.
But Russian brides will not let go of their old country traditions and customs even if they are living in the heart of New York City. At the same time, they will respect their husbands and even his family to the hilt. They will be able homemakers, and will manage the budget quite capably. Being brought up in traditional Russian society, Russian women will not want a career to equal her husband’s, but will manage his finances in a very expert manner. All in all, marriage to a Russian bride is a very winning situation, if you make some adjustments with the cultural differences that might creep in.
What’s up with these Russian girls?
Why are there so many beautiful (and I mean Smokin hot), russian girls willing to be a mail order bride? they are all young and beautiful and are willing to marry anyone(of course with money) in north america to come and settle here. What’s wrong with Russia?
I am not russian, I am Ukrainian, but I do have some russian friends and for the sake of argument let’s assume I am one. See many women in Russia don’t find good men or are tired of not living the financially not-so-stable life, so they do this. Many Russian women believe in men-providers/women-hiusekeepers role and so they want a man who can give them everything they want and they don’t have to work at all just do house chores.Also, many russian guys think I am hot (I actually live in Toronto, and am a citizen now, but came here 9 yrs ago), but I find them too loud, obnoxious and their attitude rubs me the wrong way, so my bf is Chinese Canadian haha (well, chinese who was born here). It is upsetting though that some comments here are blatantly disrespectful of Russians. Eastern European culture is different than the one here, with men being in power (which they too often abuse and women being submissive). Don’t hate and disrespect if you don’t know, ppl
