Hello everyone and WELCOME!
We are Natasha and Gary – a happily married Russian-American couple, who is thrilled to share knowledge and first-hand experience on challenges and blessings of a Russian-American marriage.
Our site is called “Russian Wife”, because we mostly will be talking about a typical Russian bride’s mindset, mentality and cultural values. When we met each other, we were not terribly familiar with each other’s cultures, which caused tension in our relationship and led us to some embarrassing situations. Now we are able to laugh about it, but we learned many things the hard way. We assume that because you are reading this, you are smarter than we were and you are doing your homework well.
Most of our misunderstandings could have been avoided if we knew and understood each other’s cultures better. Don’t let cultural differences confuse you, and ruin your relationship or marriage.
A Russian-American marriage can be challenging, but it is incredibly exciting and worth every bit of effort at the same time.
If you want to win your Russian love’s heart, improve your marriage, or simply make your Russian woman the happiest woman on earth, read our tips. We are writing them based on lots of research, our experience and on the experience of a number of Russian-American couples we are friends with.
Of course, every couple is unique and some things may not apply to you, but most of the things will. Just stay open minded and do not take everything literally. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to leave a message. We are here to help.
We wish you happiness and endless love.
Natasha and Gary.
PS. Russian women’s mentality is similar (if not the same) as the mentality of Eastern European women, so if your wife is from Belarus or Ukraine, our site will be useful for you as well.
