1. She will treat you like a king.
If a Russian woman truly loves her man, she kind of puts him on a pedestal. This is because Russian women value themselves: if she is the queen, she would only choose the king and treat him like the king – with respect, care, love, and support. So if you end up marrying a Russian woman, she will be telling everyone that you are the best person on the planet, the most talented, the strongest, the smartest – and she will be sincere about that.
2. She will never leave you.
A Russian woman will be your partner, your best friend, your advisor, your doctor if you are sick, and she will always be by your side. For Russian women, loyalty means following their loved ones to the ends of the world and staying together through thick and thin. The best example of loyalty of Russian women is from the 19th century, when there was a riot against the Tsar, and Decembrists – the aristocrats who participated in that riot – were sentenced for a lifelong exile and hard labor in Siberia. Their wives left everything behind, followed them voluntarily to cold deserted lands, and shared the punishment of their husbands, for years living in inexplicable conditions. Surprised? Well, this is just how Russian women love: unconditionally and self-forgetfully. So if you think loyalty is unnecessary and boring, don’t marry a Russian woman.
3. She will feed you. A LOT.
You can be sure that when you come home after a long working day, a tasty dinner is already waiting for you. ALWAYS. This is because for many Russian women, cooking is a way to show their love. Russian girls learn the art of cooking and housekeeping from their mothers and grandmothers, who teach them the age-old family recipes that are passed from generation to generation. By the way, in a Russian home, ‘a meal’ usually means three separate dishes. So if you do marry a Russian woman, make sure you always come home hungry and not late for dinner!
4. She will want babies.
Most Russian women believe that their main purpose in life is to become a wife, give birth to a child, and devote her life to her family. This is genetic: Slavic girls are psychologically ready to become mothers as soon as they get married. Traditional Russian family is incomplete without kids, and Russian women can’t understand why Western women consciously choose not to give birth to a child. Although many Russian females also have careers, when it comes to starting a family, they will sacrifice their jobs, because for them, no professional accomplishment can be more important than the moments spent with the family. So if you marry a Russian woman, there is a high chance that at some point she will tell you she wants a baby from you.
5. She is too beautiful.
For sure you have heard about famous Slavic beauty, which has charmed so many men from different corners of the world. The dedication that Russian women have to look beautiful is just scary. They have to look amazing whether they are going to the theatre or taking the dog for a walk. So if you can’t stand other men looking admiringly at your wife, don’t marry a Russian woman.
