Why Russian women seek husbands abroad?
If you ask women this question, the answers will be:
I want my children to be happy and have a secure future, and it's impossible with the current situation in Russia.
There are not enough men in Russia to find a partner.
Russian men are terrible.
All the statements are true to a great extent. But at the same time none of them gives you a real reason.
The real and fundamental reason why women look for a life partner abroad is that they are not happy in their love life and cannot find a suitable partner in Russia. It's that simple!
The demographic reason behind that is that there are 10 million more women in Russia than men, or only 88 men for 100 women. Some women are destined to stay single. The cultural notion for a Russian woman is to get married and have a family; this is the necessary condition of success for a woman. This is why even successful career women feel unfulfilled if they don't have a husband and family, and some of them use search for a partner abroad as an option. They do it because they want to meet a suitable partner for marriage.
A married woman, even if she is struggling with everyday surviving and not happy with Russian family model, won't divorce her Russian husband to look for a foreign husband.
Russian women do not choose between Russian men and foreign men. They choose between staying single for life and having her own family.
Russian women want MARRIAGE, to love and be loved. Security and a better life go as a part of the package.
