Family Life With Russian and Ukrainian Brides - What To Expect

Men looking for traditional brides often choose to marryRussian and Ukrainian brides. These ladies from Ukraine and Russia might make preferable spouses for these men as they tend to adhere to traditional family standards and gender roles. Even so, they still may desire to live in their husband's country and look forward to the new possibilities of a life overseas, away from their home country. With this, many women in this country purposely seek out international husbands to marry.

 As a matter of fact, Ukraine  and its culture features a patriarchal standard that may lead to women having difficult lives. This society provides that men are the heads of their families and therefore dominant over women. They are not expected to help with raising children or taking care of the occasional household duty. Even if a woman works a full time job outside their home, as many do to help with finances, she still is expected to take care of her household entirely on her own.
To get away from this society and to have the possibility of perhaps a happier future, many young women join dating groups and social clubs whose primary goals are to encourage international marriages. Men from countries around the world, such as the U. S., the U. K., and Australia, travel to Ukraine  and Russia , spending  several weeks at a time there getting to know women whose goals are to be married and to have children. When she agrees to marry, she will leave for his country and begin her new life with her husband.

Their new lives do not mean that these women will abandon their beliefs or inclusion of their culture in their new marriages. Russian brides may in fact insist on their husbands being the head of the families and providing for their household, while they stay at home to take care of the children and the house. Even so, they might also tell their husbands that they need respect and appreciation and even the occasional help with the children and the house chores.
In fact, practices in Western nations have been reported as being respectful of women more so than other societies are. In America, for instance, shows on TV and movies sometimes show men consulting with their wives and other women rather than acting on their own. Women act as decision makers for their children and husband. Women in other cultures may find this appealing and want to belong to such a lifestyle. Women with Slavic heritages are observed to be beautiful and have appearances that include blue eyes and high cheekbones. These physical characteristics are specific to that region of the world and may be preferred by some men than the appearances of American women.
Additionally, females in the U. S., the U. K., and other similar countries have been observed as independent and unwilling to give up their careers to be stay at home mothers and wives. If a man wants a traditional wife, he often has to look to other countries for such a spouse. Russian  and Ukrainian brides satisfy this desire for men who want a mother and wife in their homes, someone who will take care of the family and their children. As such, men will go to Ukraine and Russia and find young ladies who want this same goal in life. Once they are wed, the newlyweds move to the man's country to begin their lives together and in some case's then men move the women's country.

Russian and Ukrainian Cuisine

Food is an important part of life in both Russia and Ukraine. Guests are always offered something to each and drink as an expression of hospitality. Celebrations and holidays in Russia and Ukraine like Easter, Christmas, New Year’s and others all have special dishes associated with them.

Because of their geographic proximity and interwoven histories, there are a lot of crossovers between Russian and Ukrainian food and drink. Each region also has its own unique influences and special dishes, as well.

Russian Cuisine

Russian cuisine is quite diverse; this only makes sense, since, by area, Russia is the largest country in the world. The culture was originally agrarian, which led to the development of a rich array of peasant foods. Grains like rye, wheat, millet and barley all grow well there, leading to a wealth of breads, pancakes and other grain-based food items. The coasts offer seafood, and mushrooms, berries, poultry and game are all plentiful.

In the 16th century under Ivan the Terrible, Italian craftsmen came to Russia to help create ornate public buildings. These craftsmen brought foods from their homeland with them, including pasta, pastries, and frozen confections such as gelato. Russians took to all of these enthusiastically.

Peter the Great brought a French chef to court. From that point forward, many members of Russian nobility had French chefs in their homes, which had a tremendous influence on Russian cuisine. One French custom the chefs brought was meals served in courses rather than all at once. The French influence on Russian cooking can also be seen in dishes like Chicken Kiev and Salat Olivier.

One book that can give insights into the ways that the Russian middle and upper class ate during the late 19th and early 20th centuries is A Gift to Young Housewives by Elena Ivanovna Molokhovets. It was the most successful cookbook in Russia in that era, and was used in many households. Recipes include ones for roast suckling pig, aspics, mousses, jams, mustards and even vodka. There was also advice for managing household servants and suggested menus for feast days. The book fell out of popularity after the rise of the Soviet Union, as it was viewed as decadent and bourgeois.

 In the Soviet era, cuisine changed to accommodate the reduced variety of ingredients available. Most dishes were simplified adaptations of Russian and French foods. In Soviet cuisine, meals generally consisted of four courses. The first would almost invariably be a soup because of soup’s ability to stretch ingredients. The second course was usually some sort of meat or poultry served with noodles, potatoes or another starch on the side. This was followed by a drink (commonly coffee, tea or kompot) and a dessert. Salads, when available, were served on the side. Soviet era food was typically mild and simple due to the difficulty acquiring spices. Many Soviet era foods remain popular today due to childhood nostalgia and the easy preparation of food like frozen pelmeni.

Globalization has made imported ingredients available in Russia, and Russians are once again expanding their palates. In cities like Moscow and St. Petersburg, ethnic restaurants featuring cuisine from all over the world is available. Dishes from other parts of the world are often given a distinctive Russian flair. For instance, at a recent food festival, a chef made a version of Spanish Paella using spelt, a Russian native grain.

Ukrainian Cuisine

Seven thousand years ago, nomadic tribes called the Tryppilian roamed the fertile steppes and low mountains of Ukraine. They planted wheat, peas, and barley, and hunted plentiful game that included bison, deer, wild boar and hares. Ukraine is still known as the bread basket of Europe because of fertile soil that grows rich crops.

Ukraine has been under the rule, at various times, of Russia, Austria and Poland. As a result, Ukrainian food is influenced by cooking from a number of cultures including German, Polish, Russian, Lithuanian and Turkish, but also retains its Ukrainian character.

Ukraine is the second largest country in Europe. Much of the country is made up of steppes where the soil is dark and fertile and ideal for growing grain, potatoes, berries, mushrooms, beets and other vegetables. The land is also perfect for grazing; dairy products, beef and pork are all important elements of Ukrainian cuisine.

Many Ukrainian holiday meals are steeped in local tradition. The celebrations were, in pre-Christian times, centered around the seasons and the harvest, but are now associated with religious holidays. For instance, Christmas Eve dinners include 12 meatless dishes. Common foods served on Christmas Eve are cabbage rolls, fish, mushrooms, and a raisin dish called kutya which is only served at the Christmas Eve meal. Easter dinners are blessed by Orthodox priest before being taken home and shared with family. Many rural Ukrainians grow vegetables in their home gardens to increase the variety of food available to them.

A lot of Ukrainian food is quite simple in order to spotlight the individual ingredients. Other dishes are more elaborate, incorporating 10 or 20 different ingredients. Borscht is the most popular meal, and there are as many recipes as there are Ukrainian cooks. Bread is served at every meal. Food is served in large portions to ensure that guests at Ukrainian tables are well-fed. Guests at Ukrainian homes are always offered food; when you visit, know that your host will appreciate you accepting their hospitality.

Mistakes Men make while Corresponding and Dating Ukrainian Women

It is very difficult to outline the most common mistakes foreign men make when they start communicating with Ukrainian ladies. We are all human and it is human to err when dealing with people. But if you want to avoid misunderstandings and embarrassing situations get prepared and learn how to avoid some of the worst mistakes.
1. Russia is not Ukraine.  Those are two different countries. It will be quite useful to read in advance about Ukraine, its culture, customs and traditions. Every woman will be flattered to realize that a man has spent time to get to know her country and culture. A Ukrainian lady will get upset if a man refers to her country as Russia, instead of Ukraine. That would mean he does not even know about the existence of Ukraine, or even worse - that he doesn't care to know. That may cause lots of misunderstandings.
2. Wrong notions.  The second most common mistake made by foreign men is considering Ukraine a third world's country. Led by this wrong assumption they tend to think that those beautiful women they see on the site are simply looking for a rich husband and a ticket abroad. The truth is that for most Ukrainian women it would be very hard to leave their country and therefore they would dare do so only if they are convinced they have found true love. That's why reading about Ukraine would be really helpful.

 3. Ukrainian mentality.  There's another major mistake foreign men make when starting an acquaintance with a Ukrainian lady - they talk about falling in love with her in their very first letter. The words "I love you" mean a lot in Ukraine. Ukrainian men never say such serious words in the beginning of a relationship. To say "I love you" in Ukraine takes a lot of time, serious feelings and commitment. Therefore, a Ukrainian woman will not like it if a foreign man tries to persuade her in his deep feelings from the very beginning. Rather, she would thing he is shallow, fake, not serious, or even worse that he says so to every pretty lady on the site.
4. Money issue.  Another ugly mistake foreign man make is to talk about how much money he has been spending on her - correspondence, phones, gifts etc. Even worse, to talk about how much money he has spent during their personal meeting. This is a sure way to deeply disappoint a Ukrainian woman. It is not accepted here in Ukraine for a man to talk about money with a woman. This should be his secret. Ukrainian women don't like their men to pay too much attention to money. They wants to be the centre of men's attention. Moreover, talking about money spent may give her the impression that he is stingy, which would most definitely be the end of her affection.
5. Dress code.  Some men, especially those from the US, may be a bit shocked by the way Ukrainian ladies dress, which is anything, but conservative. Most Ukrainian ladies prefer to dress fashionably, and in a way that sometimes may be considered "immodest". That's because they are not ashamed to show their beautiful bodies. However, this does not mean they are sexually available. Most women in Ukraine would not have sex in the beginning of a relationship (not to speak on the first date) and some would not have sex at all if they are not engaged or married to a man. Well, on the other hand you have to be aware that at times it is quite possible for your dress style to also shock Ukrainian ladies. Lots of American and European men like wearing casual or sports clothes. For instance, French men love wearing corduroy pants, while Americans love wearing jeans and shorts. However, such casual clothes may seem to your Ukrainian lady inappropriate for dating activities, such as dining out, going to the theatre, etc.
 6. Smiling and chewing of gum.  Both of these are part of the American culture. People in the USA always smile and they have this habit of chewing a gum. In Ukraine people also love to smile and they also use chewing gum, they just do it in a different manner. Often Americans say that Ukrainians look a bit sullen, which is completely wrong. People here love to smile and to have fun, but it is not part of the local culture to smile at people you do not know - people you meet on the bus, on the streets, at stores or at other public places. If you smile in Ukraine as much as you do in your home country, people may think you are not in your right mind. Your Ukrainian lady may think the same! As for the chewing gum, people here, especially the elder generation, think it is rude to be chewing a gum while talking to someone. They consider it a nasty habit.
7. Flowers.  When dating Ukrainian women make sure you give them only an odd number of flowers. In Ukraine an even number of flowers are being brought only to funerals. Also avoid giving yellow flowers, because the yellow is considered to be symbolizing a break up. A superstitious lady may also consider it to be a bad omen or a sign of bad luck.

Ukrainian Brides - What About Sex ?

Sex is an essential part of human relationships; it is an alpha and omega of any romantic relationship, including the online dates as well. Therefore, no wonder if searching for Ukrainian bride you would want to learn more on what is the attitude of Ukrainian women towards sex.

Moreover, besides being one of the corner stones of romantic relationships, sex is also a part of any culture. Different cultures have developed different perceptions of sex and have assigned to it certain value and guidelines for people to follow in those societies. Thus, coming from different cultures you and your fiancé may have completely different view on sexual relationships and on what is allowed in it and what is not. So let us take a look at what Ukrainian culture says about sex and how Ukrainian brides view it.
TraditionalUkrainian culture is quite conservative when it comes to sex. The days of the Soviet Union have also influenced the perceptions of elder generation of sex. Back in those times sex was not discussed much and sex out of marriage was considered something vulgar and inappropriate.
Of course, since that time many things have changed and people here do not view sex in that fashion any more. Now both men and women here are more liberal about it and do not condemn sex out of marriage. They do not view it as a marital duty anymore, rather as pleasure. However, that does not mean that Ukrainian brides would be willing to have sex right away on first or second date.
I should say that younger generation of ladies (18-25 years old) is much more liberal about sex than the ladies of 30 years old or more. Of course, there are girls who do not think that there are any restrictions as to when and who to have sex with, although most ladies in Ukraine are more conservative about it. However, most ladies would not make a man wait to have sex with them until the wedding ceremony.
Ukrainian brides can be very beautiful, gentle and passionate. They possess self-respect and dignity as well. They view sex as an important part of their long-term relationships with men. As I have already mentioned, most ladies would not consent to have sex after first few dates. If you would insist on it they might get offended and it can ruin your relationships.
It is best to allow your lady to get physical with you when she is ready for it, because Ukrainian brides are not only beautiful, but they are also very emotional and sensitive. Sex for them is only a part of romantic relationships with a man they love and trust. Thus, if you will respect your fiancé and will not force the matter, you will be really satisfied and pleased with your relationships, including sexual ones, when she will get ready to try it with you.

Making the perfect date with a Ukrainian women

A first date can be a deciding factor in the fate of men and women. Here is formed the first impression about each other, which remains in the memory for a lifetime.

Visiting The Family Of Your Ukrainian Bride ? Follow These Tips And They Will Love You Forever

If you are reading this article, it is most likely that you have already found your Ukrainian bride and dated her online for a while. Now you are considering the possibility of coming to Ukraine to meet her personally and making acquaintance with her friends and family. Of course, you understand how important and consequential this meeting could be for your relationships. Thus, in this article I would like to provide you with some hints on how to impressing both your Ukrainian bride and her family.
Family and relatives are very important for Ukrainian women, as their local culture is all family oriented. Many Ukrainian ladies go on living with their parents until they get married, and even after that they would still visit them often and listen to their advices and opinions. When planning a visit to your Ukrainian bride's family, you should know that Ukrainians are extremely hospital. By using word "extremely" I meant to say that they would do all possible and even more to impress you by their warm reception, and to set up a fully loaded table for you.
Ukrainian women are excellent cooks and your Ukrainian bride's mother would work hard to please you by cooking and feeding you generously. So, do not eat before you go to visit your lady's family. Also, try to eat as much as they offer you, otherwise if you deny their hospitality you may hurt their feelings and upset them.
Now, they would work hard to prepare for the meeting with you and accordingly you should not show up at their house empty-handed. Thus, plan to bring some gifts for all your Ukrainian bride's family members. First of all, bring a small present for your sweetheart. It could be a bouquet of flowers and some sweets. Also, find out more about your bride's family and bring small gifts for each of her relatives. You may bring a bottle of good wine, cognac or vodka for her father and some flowers and candy for her mother. If she has any brothers and sisters, bring them some presents, too. If they are still kids, bring them some toys and sweets.
For more grown up family members you may bring such small items as souvenirs from your country, good stationary, fun cups, etc. If your lady has a child bring him or her a good and fun present, this way you will win her heart and the hearts of all family. These presents should not be expensive, but rather they should show your care and desire to please them.
You should also consult your Ukrainian bride and find out if it would be appropriate for you to buy some food, such as cheese, sausage or fruit, for instance. In some families, they would gladly welcome such gifts. Besides, discuss with your fiancé your dress code for the event. She knows her parents well and can advise you as to your dressing style, so you would make the best impression possible on her family. Otherwise, do not wear too casual

What is the Traditional Russian Wedding ?

 1.In every country, there are different unique wedding traditions that are being followed. Though traditions may not be followed at all times because of differences, it is always great if you know some practices. You never knew, even though Russian brides do follow your wedding traditions, they might as well want to incorporate theirs in the plan. It’s cute though, to have a wedding in mixed tradition. It would be fun and amazing.

2.Russian brides have this belief that a marriage on the month of May is doomed to failure. Certain things will not work when it is conducted in that certain month. So you might not schedule your wedding on May if you want to live happily with your Russian bride. However, Russian brides are open-minded, and they are willing to cooperate with your plans, anyway it’s just a myth. However, there’s nothing wrong if you follow it. So just try the June wedding instead. It would be a great idea to join in the fun of almost all the people in the world. Alternatively, have your wedding date on the 14th of February to make it more Romantic and memorable for your Russian bride.

3.Another belief of Russian brides is this; the first person of the newlywed to step in the wedding carpet will rule the family. So if you don’t want your Russian bride to rule over you, better take the first step. Alternatively, if you want to have fair domination, then it would be cute if you both step together. This one is pretty cool; what if you race with each other? That would be great.

4.Other traditions of Russian brides are in line with salt and bread. Families of Russian brides traditionally give salt and bread to the couple because they believe that this will bring prosperity and good luck to the couple’s marriage life. Other countries have this practice too and just like the Russians; they too believed that salt and bread brings prosperity to marriage. Basically, because bread symbolizes food and salt adds flavour to everything. So when your Russian in-laws give you these, accept it! You wanted to have a good future with your Russian bride right?

5.These traditions and beliefs are just a myth. However, if you want to woo Russian brides, you might as well give this a try. Nothing bad will happen to you if you don’t practice these beliefs but at the same time, you will not lose anything. Traditions are just some sort of belief from the ancient people, and if you incorporate them in your wedding, it will look like you respect the traditions of Russians. So when you do such, you gain trust and admiration from the parents and friends of your Russian bride. However, a good talk with your bride to be great, you can ask her about that issue. In the end, it will be the two of you who will get married and not you and her traditions.

Four simple tips to help your Ukrainian wife to integrate into the Western culture

You have a found a special woman from Ukraine, you got married to her and your Ukrainian spouse arrived in your Western native country.  And what now?
From my experience, I can say you that most of the problems in a Ukrainian-Western relationship and marriage come after your woman moved to your country. Very usually, the woman feels lonely in her new country, she does not speak the language of her husband, and she has no friends with whom she could talk. I am a Ukrainian woman who lives in Germany about 9 years and I have to mention that the first two years in the new country are the most difficult for immigrants.
I have a lot of female friends from Ukraine and Russia here in Germany. From their personal experience, I can say you that Ukrainian and Russian women integrate very differently, and their integration into the new culture and society depends on various factors such as what their support structure is like, how many other Russians and Ukrainians are in their region, how helpful and tolerant their Western husbands are, their foreign language speaking ability, etc.
Here are my four tips that coach you how to help your wife from Ukraine to integrate into her new country:
Tip #1: show a lot of patience, understanding and tolerance
Nine years ago, I experienced a “culture shock”, namely the German culture was too different than the Ukrainian one. Furthermore, the fact that you are alone in your new homeland (no family, no friends) does not make you happy.
Western men must be aware that their Ukrainian wife could be unhappy and miss her country, family and friends desperately (possibly within the first few months). You should be very patient with your Ukrainian spouse during this “loneliness” period. If she feels that her partner loves her and cares of her, the first period passes quickly. The emotional and psychological support is a very important part of your wife’s integration.
Tip #2: support your wife’s communication with her Ukrainian family
Another tip to support your woman is to give her an opportunity to call her family and friends in Ukraine. In my opinion, it helps to integrate into the new Western culture and society because your wife does not feel lonely and depressed if she sufficiently communicates with the persons she loves. As you know, Ukrainian women have strong traditional family values; therefore the communication with the family in Ukraine is an important part of our culture.
Moreover, the family often plays a significant role in the life of your immigrant wife and perhaps still has the ability to impact her – that means for you that if the Ukrainian family knows that the woman is happy and feels comfortable in your native country they will motivate and encourage your Ukrainian spouse to integrate into the new Western life more quickly and learn first of all the language of the new motherland. Do not think that phone calls to Ukraine are too expensive! You can buy calling cards – so telephone rates through them are really low to Ukraine.
Tip #3: help your wife to become familiar with the language of your country
I am sure that learning the language of the new native country (English, German, French or Italian) is a very important step in an immigrant wife’s adjustment to the Western culture. From my experience, I can say that if you do not speak the language of your new homeland you will not integrate into the West. No language – no integration! I think it would help if you learn Russian or Ukrainian a little bit to show your wife that you are motivated to learn her language too.
Most of the Ukrainian women who arrive in the Western world understand that language knowledge gives them the feeling of comfort and the ability to express her feelings and thoughts. Therefore, I have experienced in Germany and Italy (I lived there three months four years ago) that women from Russia and Ukraine improve their foreign language competence within just a few months.
So you need to speak with her in your language, explain grammar rules and correct her if she makes any mistakes. In addition, I would recommend you enrolling your Ukrainian spouse in a language school for adults after she arrives in her new country. The woman will be able to make some new friends there who share the common experience of immigrating to the West and learning the foreign language. For example, I met Olga, one of my best friends, in my German class for immigrants. The woman is more comfortable adjusted to her new environment because she has sufficient communication with other people (not only with her partner).
One more thing… it is really helpful if your woman starts to learn the foreign language in Ukraine. In my case, I did study German for one year before I arrived in Germany. I did not experience this trouble: “throw me in the cold water and ask me to swim”. Of course, I had some difficulties with German but I was able to communicate and enjoy socializing with the German-speaking people.
So I would recommend you without doubt to pay for your woman to study your language in Ukraine before she immigrates (if she cannot pay by herself). Foreign language classes are not expensive in Ukraine: the English class in Ukraine costs about $100 per month. I am rather sure that it is an advisable investment of a few hundred dollars/Euros in exchange for barrier-free and easy communication with your Ukrainian woman.
Tip #4: allow your wife to communicate with Russian and Ukrainian women
Some Western men suppose that the best way for their immigrant wife to integrate into the new culture is to be connected only to their native country people. But this idea is not correct. Of course, that is very important to communicate with the Westerners in order to integrate into the new country more quickly and effectively.
However, communication with Russian and Ukrainian women in the new country is very important, as well. If your immigrant spouse has several good friends with whom she is able to share her experience of immigrating, integrating and new life in the West, she will not miss her friends in Ukraine very strongly and feel not lonely in her new country anymore.
I would absolutely recommend you to allow her make some good Russian/Ukrainian-speaking friends in your area. So the woman communicates with somebody who is able to understand her from her Ukrainian/Russian cultural female perspective.
 I hope these tips will be helpful to you!


Thinking Twice Before Marrying Your Ukrainian Bride?


Russian and Ukrainian women are loving and romantic but you have a lot to learn before you get into a long-term relationship with her. You might find making her your bride challenging, but it is worth the effort.

Ukrainians are warm, and they are jovial. Ukraine women are not far behind. These women  have a natural charm, and they can make anyone fall in love with them.
Russian women are usually emotional by nature. They usually look for exact matches, but they also know that love is not enough. They have many dreams, and they know that a romantic relationship with someone is not enough to fulfill these. They look for support and security in marriage, such as a large house and enough to support their style of living without any hitch.
People who are looking for a Ukrainian bride should keep in mind that the Russian people in general are proud and Ukrainian women in particular have a high self-esteem. Men who want to share their life with a special woman from Ukraine should know that it will not be easy to adapt to the new habits they need to form to get through their daily life. Women who are ready to leave their family and start a new life with a man who is basically a stranger to them, also have requirements and sometimes they are more than what was expected.
These requirements can be met, and any sort of misunderstanding between the two can actually be resolved. Ukrainian Brides prefer men who are honest and men who can share even the deepest of secrets with them, and not just the happy moments.
It might sound easy, finding a foreign bride, but, considering all the above mentioned points, it is going to be hard, and might cause some uneasiness in the relationship at a later stage. Before you decide to marry, one must sit down and analyze all the pros and cons that are involved in marrying a Russian Woman. The Ukrainian Woman respects their tradition a lot, so it is necessary for you to learn it properly.
Taking Russian lessons is the best way of breaking the language barrier between you and your Ukrainian bride. You might also want to study some of their customs in order to understand a typical Russian woman's psychology. This will ease the cultural shock you might experience as your relationship progresses. Doing this not only improves your knowledge regarding Russian women, but also decreases the pressure that they feel in order to fulfill your dream of an ideal Russian bride.
If you do not have enough time to spare, you have the option of hiring a matchmaker or an agency that deals with foreign marriages. These people will have complete knowledge regarding traditions and culture and can be of immense help when it comes to overcoming legal barriers. They can also brief you on the etiquette that you must follow when you meet the bride and her family members.
Just listen to your heart. Make sure you have true feelings toward your Ukrainian bride, and be sure that she is having these same feelings
