Russian women want to marry good men and have a normal family and children, and it's not always possible in Russia for all of them.There is huge demographic disproportion in Russia with only 88 men for 100 women.Yes, most Russian women work (and were always working since the Communist Revolution in 1917), there is still plenty of male chauvinism and since men occupy most powerful positions, they don't want it changed!I would have never even considered leaving Russia to marry a foreigner if I could meet a good man in Russia and get married to him and have a happy family. This is the fundamental difference between Russian/Eastern European women and Asian main order brides, as I see it (I may be totally wrong here, it's just my personal opinion): Asian brides consider immigration as the means to support their families and provide for their parents and siblings, and I know husbands of Asian brides have to send money on monthly basis to support the wife's family overseas.Those values are what guides our behavior and the reason why we feel happy or unhappy.Russian culture tells women their happiness is in the family; and to men their happiness is in their career/work.If you look at the Russian women who are looking for husbands abroad, so many of them have advanced degrees and professional jobs like lawyers, economists, accountants, medical doctors or engineers - they are not poor Russian girls looking to get out of poverty!It is really the Russian family culture that pushes those women to look for a partner elsewhere.
I know people in Russia have a very different lifestyle now than 12 years ago, just like lots of things changed here too! A.; the difference will be comparable to the difference between countryside and city life in your country.
Some of men are unable to hold a job or provide for the family and the woman has to have a full-time job and then work the second shift doing ALL domestic chores and looking after kids. Family dynamics are totally different in Russia, Ukraine and other countries of the former Soviet Union.
You just cannot understand HOW different it's there.
I hear this question all the time, from men and media, "Why Russian women want to leave Russia?
" Another popular question is, "Why Russian women want to marry American men?
