Thousands of Russian women and Ukrainian women seek their husband in western countries. It’s a well know phenomenon often referred as “Russian mail order brides”.
These are the main reasons why each year, thousands of Russian and Ukrainian women register with local marriage agencies and use international matchmaking services. It gives them the possibility to seek suitable life partners from the USA, UK, Canada, Germany, Australia, France and Norway among other “western countries”.
Over the years, many people have used this “Russian mail order brides” phenomenon in a wrong way known as “dating scams” causing Russian women seeking a foreign husband to be labelled as scammers. The vast majority of Russian women seeking a western man for husband are doing so for sincere reasons: simply creating a happy and healthy family.
Russian women live in the largest country on earth, have a very rich heritage and are proud to be Russian. Leaving their family and friends for a man who often lives thousand of kilometres away is a very big decision. It’s natural that they wish to meet a decent man, with a good job and who will provide security to their new family.
Russian women become the wives of thousands of men every year. While this demographic and cultural situation will not likely change for many years, the phenomenon of Russian mail order brides seeking their husband in western countries is expected to keep growing well into the first half of the 21st century.
