In recent years, thousands of young Russian and Ukrainian women have come to the
USA and European countries by means of marriage. But who are these
women, really? Why are they prepared to leave everything behind, to go
to an unknown country and live with an unknown man? Can a Russian
bride really be a good solution for a Western man? So…what makes these women
In the 90s Russia became popular not only as a new
"unexplored" travel destination, but also as a place to find a "perfect" wife.
It's not a secret that some male travelers who come to Russia are
also interested in finding a woman, or that a lot of Russian women are not
against marrying an interesting foreign man.
are thousands of dating services featuring young,
beautiful Russian women
who are looking for Western husbands. There are
so many women, that it might seem all of the young females in Russia have
decided to leave their country. This is only an illusion, though. Russia and
Ukraine are very big countries with huge populations, and women who are
searching for husbands abroad represent less than 0.01% of all single Russian

girls who place their ads with dating services, hoping to find a husband in the
USA or Europe, have various reasons to do so. The most common reason is that
they have heard from friends and the media that Western men treat women better
than Russian men do. They have heard that drinking isn’t such a problem in these
Western countries as it is in Russia, and that men actually care for their
families. Being intelligent and educated, Russian women are still feminine,
warm and gentle. Competing with men is the last thing they seek in their family
lives. The Russian ideal of a man is the man with whom she feels like she is "behind the stone wall", the leader, the
provider and the protector. Believe it or not, the reason for all these
beautiful Russian women seeking their destiny over the Internet is that they
cannot find their ideal man in Russia. It is that simple. But is it really
Russian women are considered to be very attractive,
and foreign men have an image (among many Russian women) of being intelligent,
wealthy, and interesting partners. It can be quite a good thing in itself:
there are many examples of people who found each other and lived happily
after... However, a huge demand from both sides gave a rise to a new "Russian
brides" industry that is gaining popularity, and a lot of individuals found many
dishonest ways of making money out of bringing people together. So, if you want
to find a partner abroad, you should be really aware: there are a lot of
opportunities, but also there's a lot of scam. The most important anti-scam
advice: NEVER send money to people you haven’t met in person. If she needs money
for emails, use email-forwarding services offered by a reliable agency. If you
do not send money, you will never be scammed.
What makes Western men look for a Russian bride? At first
glance, it might seem very strange that so many men are prepared to spend
thousands, to bring a foreign wife to their country and
struggle with all the differences of language and
Wouldn’t it be easier to find
a decent wife at home? Western men have many reasons to look for
Some are fascinated by Russian culture and want a partner who would not only
share this fascination, but actually be a part of this culture.
- Some are
middle-aged men, who were unhappy in a previous relationship but are prepared to
try again, with a lady who is still young enough to have
children. As you know, in Western culture marriages with age
differences of 5 years, or more, are not common, so if a man were 45-50, he
would be unlikely to find a partner under 40 years of age, in his own
- And some are men who, for one reason or another, are
dissatisfied with the women in their own country. Russian women are less
materialistic, more traditional and feminine than their Western sisters, and
this type of a lady appeals to many men. Though it is also a point to argue,
taking into account the experience of the previous years.
should be pointed out that Russian women pay a lot of attention to their
apperiance inspite of their money condition. They may also have unsatisfectory
living standards but they always try to look attractive. They never forget that
they are women. They will never wear special clothers for work in everyday
Russian women are considered to be the best mothers. They are worthy of
the title. Is there a country where mothers help their children morally and
financially throughput their life? Is there a country which saw such
self-sacrificed mothers? And, after all, is there a country where mothers watch
over and control their children so meticulously? The whole Russian culture
teaches that a woman finds her highest fulfillment and joy in being a wife and
mother. They learn these skills from their mother’s at a young age.
- Most women
in the Former Soviet Union
have a college degree or are working
on one. Many have knowledge (at least to a degree) of a 2nd or 3rd language.
These ladies are very well educated.
So, they are beautiful, smart,
responsible, intelligent, caring and loving - they have all these features. How
can one find a way to say about the Russian soul: I almost think it is better
not to even try. It is very difficult for a foreigner who has not experienced
Russians in Russia to understand. You almost have to be there; maybe you do have
to be there.
There are thousands of Russian-Western
couples that are very happy together
. There are unhappy ones as well, though, and the
usual causes are: a lady can’t adjust to a life in a new country, both partners
had unrealistic expectations before marriage or they can’t work through their
cultural differences, so mutual understanding is never achieved. If you are
looking for a Russian lady it is very important to collect as much information
as possible about her and her culture.
WHO ARE THE "RUSSIAN BRIDES"? Generally, the
women who decide to find a foreign husband can be very different and can have
completely different motivations. Some women are sincerely looking for a partner
to create a family together, some women just want to have fun, others want to

you should take it as some information for consideration only. The
general rules are the following.
Choose an agency that is recommended by
many sources, and ask about it in the e-group you joined. If the agency is bad,
people will tell you. If no one knows this agency, you will be better off
staying away from them. Please remember that there are many small local agencies
in Russia with the same or similar names; so always include particulars (website
address, owner’s name etc) when ask questions about agencies. As a rule, a good
agency will be able to accept payments by credit card, provide references, and
have their business address and phone number listed on the website.
live in a small town, stay away from girls from capitals
(Moscow, St. Petersburg,
Kiev, Odessa, Minsk
): women from those
cities will struggle to adapt to a life in a small town. By the
way Russia is not Moscow or St Petersburg only. Russia now is first
of all a province. Especially there you can meet "a mysterious Russia
soul". And the most beautiful women live in the province.
You will need a visa to visit Russia, Ukraine
. If you stay in a hotel, they will
provide you with an invitation. If you stay at the woman’s home, she must send
you a personal invitation. If you travel through Russia, Ukraine or Belarus
transit, you will need a transit visa. Both tourist and transit
visas should be obtained at the
Russian (Ukrainian, Belarussian) Consulate in your home country and are not
issued on arrival. If you think you’ve met the right woman, and want to
marry her, the right way depends on the country. Most countries have special
visas: fiancee or spouse visas. Those visas are specially designed to allow
foreign nationals to marry a citizen. For USA it will be fiancee (K-1) visa that
you should apply for: it is a special non-immigrant visa given to people that
intend to marry.
receive a fiancee visa you must prove that you
have met in person before (4-10 “romantic” photos together, air tickets, hotel
bills, tickets to concerts and other activities you attended together, etc), and
that you have an established relationship (include copies of emails,
envelopes/letters, postcards, phone bills, etc). You both should be legally free
to marry (not married at the moment), and your fiancee should not have a
criminal record or dangerous disease (HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, syphilis etc). You
need to have a yearly income of more than 125% of the current poverty level
(more than $13,500). Only USA citizens can apply for a fiancee visa; permanent
residents are not eligible for this visa and should marry outside the country.
You must be married within 3 months from the arrival of your fiancee on the
fiancee visa, or she will have to go back. The fiancee visa cannot be extended;
in case you did not marry she will have to re-apply for another visa to enter
the USA for the second time.
also decide to marry in Russia, and then apply for a spouse
visa for your wife. In the case of Russian marriage, you will need to produce a
legal document that you are free to marry, certified document of your legal
address, birth certificate, divorce certificate (or death certificate) if you
were married before, and your passport. All documents,
except for the passport, should be legalized, notarized, and have a copy
translated to Russian by a certified translator.
When she arrives, don’t be surprised if she is not very affectionate and
does not seem very happy. Please understand she had to leave her country, family
and friends behind, and this makes her feel sad. She is unsure if everything
will work out for you and her. The process of receiving the visa can also be
very stressful and frustrating, and she may simply be tired. Let her rest and
relax, and in a couple of weeks she will be a different person. Be kind and patient with her. It is not your purpose to change who she
is. You should love who she is very much. The goal instead is to
reach a mutual understanding about the cultural differences. And while you do
not want to change who she is, or change her soul and personality created by the
influence of her culture, you stand willing and able to adapt yourself to her
needs and wants, and to help her understand your culture.
Here are some wonderful
reviews of those people who had an experience of
communication and marriage with Russian ladies. We thought that it would be
interesting for you to read those sincere opinions and wishes. May be here you
will find the answer to the question which will help you to make the right
"My advice is that there's no need to use any of
these artificial dating agencies to meet women, just go there, and travel and
enjoy the culture, I made many good friends and men and women and saw some great
history, and eventually you will meet the right person, naturally, not
artificially, as it should be. This advice is for men and women, because Russian
men are not the stereotyped slobs or slackers as maybe even many Russian women
say, I have great Russian male friends too, they are educated and intelligent
and keen to meet people from different cultures. i am tired of this racist
portrayal of russian men as alcoholics, bums etc. I am not russian by the way,
but I am speaking from personal experience."
"Hi, I just wanted to say that I would never tell a
girl that I was rich in the first place. I would just tell her that I am a
person of average wealth, just like her. Also, I would not use an internet site
to find a girl (Russian or otherwise), the best thing to do is to go to the
country and if you see a nice girl, just make conversation with her in the
normal way, treat her nicely, make her feel really special and theres a good
chance that after a while, she will like you a lot. However, if you are
seriously looking for marriage then an agency is not a bad idea. I am not rich
but even if I was I would never tell anyone about it, remember, you cannot trust
anyone in this world other than yourself and almighty God!"
"I really want to go to Russia soon, not because
I want a Russian woman (although I wouldn't mind lol) but because I have a great
admiration for Russia and the Russian people, I admire their strength and their
great history, the way that they always survive no matter what the problems and
hardships, they always find a way to victory. I can't understand why any one
would be a "Russophobiac", If I was Russian I would be very proud! Anyway, if I
wanted to get married, then I would only go for the "family" type, even if she
was "blonde", I would make sure that she was a good person from her heart... Too
many Westerners make mistakes and end up marrying a girl who is just a "Gold
Digger" and wants to rip you off, which is why it is very important that you
really get to the know the girl first! However, it is quite true that Russian
women in general are honest, kind, caring, and have good hearts, I know this
because my one of my friends is married to a wonderful Russian girl, she is the
nicest person I have ever met...
Anyway, I could talk about Russia forever coz I love
it so much but I have to go, all I say is that please take care and be careful,
a TRUE woman (Not just in Russia but from anywhere in the world) does not really
need money or material things to make her happy, she just needs love! This
doesn't mean that you are a slave for her and do everything to make her happy,
it just means that you are there for her when she really needs you and that she
can always rely on you to be there for her, in her good times and her bad times,
just stand by her and always be her BEST FRIEND! This is the key! Remember, you
can't BUY love, you can only EARN it, love is the greatest gift that a woman can
give you, so please treat this gift with great care and respect, and I GUARANTEE
that you will always be truly HAPPY! Thanks..."
"I can happily report that after more than 5
great years of marriage to a very beautiful girl I met online from Russia, and
two fantastic bilingual children, I would heartily recommend such
"How did you meet your wife? How did you know she was
really interested in you? I am curious to know how can one really date and
develop a relationship when the two people live in different countries."
" ...We met through an online dating site. We then emailed
each other for two months daily, began phoning each other, then finally I
decided it was time to see if the beautiful girl in the photos was really that
good. As the catchphrase "If it seems too good to be true, then it usually is.."
says, I basically had to meet up with my online date to see if there really was
a future in all of it. So, I asked if I could come to St Petersburg to see her
from the UK. Two months later I was there for a week. My then girlfriend took a
week off from her work, met me off the plane, and took me to the apartment she
had arranged for me for the week. It's fair to say that I already knew her well,
even though we had only just met, as we had discussed everything under the sun
before I even got there. By the end of the week, we had arranged that we would
meet again on my territory, in Scotland about eight weeks later. This was for
two weeks. I admit it's all a bit surreal, carrying on a relationship with
someone so far away, but it did develop, fairly quickly, to the point that we
decided that the next visit would again be to Scotland, and that marriage would
follow as soon as was possible.
As I said, that was over five years ago now,
and it ws the best thing I ever did, without doubt. We have two wonderful
children now, and go back to visit my wife's family at least once a year,
sometimes more than that. For next year we have already started planning to
drive from Scotland to St Petersburg and back, an adventure both of us are
looking forward to very much. My wife gave up a well paid, by Russian standards,
job to come here. We are similar ages, ( in our 30's) and therefore have very
similar interests and views on life. That is important in any marriage, but
probably more so in one that started out in such a way I would say... You have
to follow your heart sometimes though."
... I am in love with a Russian woman, and I want
her to stay a Russian woman. It is not your purpose to change who she is. You
should love who she is very much. The goal instead is to reach a mutual
understanding about the cultural differences. And while you do not want to
change who she is, or change her soul and personality created by the influence
of her culture, you stand willing and able to adapt yourself to her needs and
wants, and to help her understand your culture.
are they, those Russian women? Read the great Russia literature to
understand it. Read Turgenev, Chekhov, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Bunin. Of course a
lot of things have changed in Russia since then. O tempora o mores! :-) And
again, Russia is not Moscow or St Petersburg only. Russia now is first of
all a province. Especially there you can meet "a
mysterious Russian soul". And the most beautiful women live in the
province. For example in Yoshkar-Ola. Come and see it
