Reasons Russian Women Seek Western Men
Russian women like Russian men. If they could, they would prefer to marry a Russian man. Of course, a Russian woman is looking for a good husband, and many Russian men often do not make good husbands.
Russian society is very chauvinistic. Women usually do the housework and take care of the children. Because of economics, they usually have a job as well.
From a cultural standpoint, drinking is socially acceptable and many Russian men drink to excess, which can also affect their health. Many Russian men are like the old cartoon character of Andy Capp.
Some are lazy, alcoholic bums who let their wives do all the housework, plus bring home a paycheck, while they go out with their friends and drink and chase women. If their wives object, they give them a swat, and if they object too much, they leave.
Because of all the single and available women, Russian men are spoiled. Many women feel lucky to have a husband even if he is like the type just described.
After the age of thirty-five, it is virtually impossible for a Russian woman to find a husband. If they are divorced and have children, the same situation applies.
Many Russian women believe that Westerners make better husbands. Right or wrong, they believe that Westerners are more liberated than Russian men and will pitch in with more of the household tasks.
Many Russian women are attracted to American men because they are better groomed and wear cleaner clothes than Russian men. American men are more polite and genteel than Russian men. Many Russians appear impolite to Americans.
They don’t say please or thank you very often. The older generation of Russians has table manners that Americans are not used to. During the Communist years, manners were considered bourgeois and they fell out of favor.
Because of the death of so many men in the Stalinist purges and World War II, many Russian men were raised without a father. Many of them do not know how to function as a father and are minimally involved with raising their children.
Many Russian women believe that they will have more economic opportunity for themselves and for their children in Western countries than in Russia.
All the women in the world are looking for economic security. Why should Russian women be any different?
America is a nation of immigrants. Virtually all of the people who have immigrated to America were looking for a better life. They operated out of what Adam Smith called ‘enlightened self-interest.’ Russian women are no different.
This has been the reality of immigration to America from the very beginning. The Spanish traveled to the New World to find ‘the fountain of youth.’ The English followed them to the New World to find the ‘streets paved with gold.’
The Irish left the Potato Famine behind for the chance of a new opportunity in America only to experience the Coffin Ships, cholera outbreaks, and signs stating ‘Irish need not apply.’
Prejudice against immigrants, including Russian women, is nothing new. They just happen to be the newest group of immigrants that are viewed with prejudice.
