Russian dating in culture
" (Or "Why Russian women want to marry Australian men", or "Why Russian women want to marry English men" etc, etc).You may ask me then why there are so many ads of Russian women seeking men abroad, on the Internet, seeking men in countries like United States, Canada, Australia and Europe - yes, this is true, but this doesn't mean Russian women WANT to leave Russia or marry western men.Leaving Russia (or her other home country, Ukraine, Moldova, Kazakhstan or any other country of the former Soviet Union), leaving Russia will be very hard for her, losing her family and friends at once and moving into unknown country to start her life all over, but the cultural standard for a woman to have family (marriage and kids) as her highest priority is so strong, some women are brave enough to look into unknown and start looking for a partner abroad.In other words, good men in Russia are rare - by a good man I mean a man who doesn't drink, doesn't sleep around, doesn't abuse his wife and is able to hold a stable job and provide for the family.If they could find a good partner in their own country, they would choose this option any day of the week!They are modern educated women who want to have a modern family life - not more, not less.I hear this question all the time, from men and media, "Why Russian women want to leave Russia?
Russian culture tells women their happiness is in the family; and to men their happiness is in their career/work.
It means 12% of women have no chance to find a husband or be married. Second reason is the well-publicized alcohol abuse in Russia by men, which results in poor health conditions and abusive behavior of men.
It is a custom where men get together in groups after work and get drunk, then go home.
My feeling, this is the reason why most Asian brides get married, to provide for their families.
This is totally different with Russian women: they get married for themselves, for their own happiness and future for their kids.
