"Russian Bride" is a recent phenomenon less than 30 years old. However, every year thousands of Russian brides marry foreigners, mostly American men. As with any intriguing trend, dating Russian brides is a subject that has inspired much buzz and many myths. If you have been considering finding a Russian bride of your own to marry and spend the rest of your life with, but are skeptical that what you have heard is true, perhaps this article will help.
There are several myths about dating Russian brides, but we will focus on 3 important ones.
Myth #1. Russian brides are looking for a sugar daddy, not love.
False! Of course there may be a handful of Russian women who are gold-diggers, but this is not the norm. The actual reason why a Russian bride is looking for a foreign husband is that she is not happy with her love life in Russia.
Russia's male to female ratio is roughly 88 women to 100 men. That means there are 10 million more women than men in their country. In Russian culture, the social status of a woman is much lower if she has not married before age thirty. A Russian bride has an ideal about relationships. They wish to marry for love, and to be treated with respect and devotion by their husbands. If this ideal cannot be achieved in Russia, they will look abroad.
Myth #2. Russian women are dependent, shy, reserved, and don't want to work, or only want to be housewives.
Not true! In today's Russia, a majority of the women have a job and are very well educated who value having a career and their own money. Yes of course they are looking for a financially accomplished husband who has proven he is comparatively hard-working and can provide for a family, but this does not mean she will quit working once she is married to you and immigates to America. On the contrary, you will mostly find while dating a Russian bride that she is quite career focused and after marrying an American man she plans on moving to the States and finding work as soon as possible.
Myth #3. Corresponding with Russian women on Russian dating sites is just a scam to get you to send them money.
Absolutely not true! This may happen from time to time, as with any website on the Web, but there actually are several reputable dating sites where you will be dating Russian brides that seriously want to find love and a husband who makes her feel adored.
