All about Russian and Ukrainian women
3 myths about Russian and Ukrainian girls seeking a man abroad.
Myth No. 1. Russian girls do not care if the man is 30 years older than them.
Many men who want to get acquainted with the Russian or Ukrainian women think that they are willing to marry men who are 20-30 years older than them.
If this is how you think, I have to disappoint you, this is not true. Yes, it is true that in the 18th century in Russia, 18-year-old girls were married to 40-year-old men. But it all changed dramatically after the revolution of 1917. The equality between men and women was proclaimed in Russia. Women began to participate actively in public life and marry their peers. At present, many Russian women are looking for a man with age difference not exceeding 5 years.
Statistics in Russia
27% of marriages are contracted between people of the same age.
In 33% of marriages, the wife is younger than her husband by up to 5 years.
In 14% of marriages, the husband is older than wife by 6-10 years
In 6% of marriages, the husband is older than wife by over 10 years.
In every fifth marriage, the wife is older than husband.
Myth No. 2. In Russia, people live very poorly, so Russian girls are ready to marry the first comer.
It is true that wages in Russia are lower than in Europe or the US. But comparing wages in euros or dollars is not entirely correct. Russia has the highest standard of living among the former Soviet Union countries. The average wage of a Russian women is about $ 400-500. Of these $ 500, $ 50 is for residential rental payment, $ 10-20 for public transport, $ 150 for food, $ 70-50 for clothes, $ 20 for entertainment, and $ 180 for other expenses. Although the wages are lower, the utilities are cheaper in Russia; there is free medicine, cheap gasoline, accessible public transport, and affordable food. Russian girl earning $ 500 per month can afford about as much as a Parisian girl with a monthly pay of $ 1,400.
After the introduction of economic sanctions against Russia, the standard of living in Russia has decreased, and the dollar exchange rate against the ruble has risen almost twice. Therefore, it has become expensive for Russians to travel abroad. Now many Russians prefer spending their holidays in Russia.
Yes, it is true that many Russian women live modestly, but not to the extent where one dies of hunger and would rather marry a man old enough to be her father.
Myth No. 3. All Russian men are alcoholics.
In Russia, there is a different culture of alcohol consumption. If the French or Spaniards drink wine in small quantities every day, the Russian men almost do not drink during the week, drinking a lot on holidays instead. Vodka is a traditional Russian drink, but this does not mean that all Russian men are alcoholics.
The peak of alcoholism in Russia was at the end of the 90s, when the Soviet Union collapsed. At this time, a lot of cheap alcohol was supplied to Russia. It was a very difficult time for the majority of Russians. Factories were shutting down, people were losing their jobs; they did not know how to feed their children. Many men became depressed, and they treated their depression with alcohol. Yes, it is true that some of these men eventually became alcoholics. But the situation has changed. It has been almost 20 years.
In Russia, there is economic stability and a very low rate of unemployment; people make plans for the future, go on holiday, and have fun. In this regard, the level of alcohol consumption has declined sharply. People are drinking more wine and less vodka. Alcohol consumption in Russia is decreasing every year. According to statistics, people drink less in large cities and more in towns. This is due to the fact that in large cities, the standard of living is much higher. A healthy lifestyle is now popular among young people; people go in for sports; most young people have a higher education and a decent job.
If you are looking for a young Russian woman, who is young enough to be your daughter, then prepare for a long search. A very small percentage of Russian and Ukrainian girls agree to such a relationship.
If you are 60 and dream of a young 30-year-old woman, you should offer her a lot more than a young 35-year-old man can offer.
1. You must have a good appearance.
2. You must be in a great shape.
3. A good education is a pro.
4. You must have a major bank account.
5. You must love traveling and spending money on your girlfriend.
6. You must give your woman expensive gifts.
What about love, you ask? If you want true love, be realistic and sensibly evaluate your potential. If you unable to find a young woman in your own country, then it is unlikely that you will find one in Russia. The maximum age difference must be about 10-15 years. The smaller the difference in age, the more women will want to meet you. Russian and Ukrainian women are good looking both when they are 40 and 50. With such a woman, you will not doubt that she has fallen in love with you for your money, or for an opportunity to leave her country. There is a smaller percentage of divorces in couples with a small age difference. You will have common views on many important things. Such Russian wife will be happy to just lie on a coach with her arms around you watching TV, rather than ask you out on a noisy disco party at three o'clock.
Good luck, Olesya.Volver a la lista
Could you please elaborate some about: "Russian and Ukrainian women are good looking both when they are 40 and 50. With such a woman, you will not doubt that she has fallen in love with you for your money, or for an opportunity to leave her country. ".
Are you saying that, Ukrainian and Russian woman should be avoided when over 40? Are you saying that all 40 and 50 year old Russian and Ukrainian women are incapable of falling in love with a foreign man? Should I have included a financial statement in my portfolio? I am conversing with a couple of ladies from Ukraine in the mentioned age category; would they lose interest once they find out I am not rich?
Thanks for the advice
