American media like to portray Russia as a country of severe cold, extreme poverty and sad unsatisfied people. If you have been in Moscow, Saint Petersburg or any other big Russian city at least once, you know that it is not true.
Many Russians live better than average Americans. They dress nicer, drive better cars and can afford exotic vacations once a year. They don’t mortgage themselves to the hilt, and they don’t have enormous debt. No doubt poverty exists in Russia, but it also exists in the United States. We personally know a few Russian-American couples, where the Russian bride had a better life in Russia in an economical sense.
Russian women may be desperate for love, but they are not desperate to leave their motherland. It is hard to leave your family, friends you grew up with, your culture and traditions, and the city where there is a reminder of your childhood everywhere you turn. It is hard to adapt to a new culture and country and it is not easy to overcome language barriers.
So why do Russian women seek their happiness abroad?
Firstly, it is not easy to find a husband in Russia, especially if you are older than 30. Russians tend to marry earlier than Americans, so if you are a 30 year old woman, good chances are than the majority of men in your age category are already taken. If you are 30, divorced with a kid, your chances to get married again (to a good man) are almost zero. Remember, that there are more women than men in Russia in the first place.
Secondly, Russian men are spoiled. They expect their wives to cook, clean, raise kids, work and to be gorgeous at the same time. Russian women have to meet their husband’s expectations, because if they don’t, good chances are they will find another wife. Divorce rates in Russia are just as high as in the United States.
Russian women usually think that Western men are more polite and considerate of their feelings.
There are many other reasons why Russian and Eastern European women seek foreigners, and unfortunately not all of them are good ones.
Some women just want exotic adventures in a new country; others are looking for money; some just want to get a fiancé visa and visit the country without even considering to get married.
There are and there will always be scammers, but there are a number of beautiful, kind-hearted women looking for someone to love and to be loved. Be cautious, think twice before establishing a relationship or inviting someone, but don’t forget to follow your heart, because often it is right.
