If after all you
decided to thwart the search of your ideal bride to Ukraine, you have to
be aware of some cultural differences. You may be concerned about possible
homesickness after your Ukrainian wife will have moved to your country.
Let us start with the
cultural differences. Now, don't be taken aback: the main source of
differences is you yourself! You have to understand this in order to get
rid of the following false assumptions:
I am a very average
Portuguese man, why would a beautiful Ukrainian woman care for me?
I am 50 years old and
that is maybe far too old for her…
I am not rich, so a
Ukrainian woman will not want me
I an divorced and have
children, that is not what Ukrainian women are looking for…
I live in a very small
city; no Ukrainian woman will be interested living there
If you share some of
the above delusions and misconceptions, continue reading both with your
heart and eyes.
Ukrainian women seek
understanding, respect and financial stability. They would definitely not
be interested in marrying a sophomore student or a jobless man.
Nevertheless, this doesn’t mean that you have to be a wealthy man. A
reasonably comfortable living that most stable jobs provide would meet
their expectations. It at least would be a better living standard than
that she might expect marrying in Ukraine. However, you have to understand
that starting a relationship with an intention of marriage will cost you
money. You will have to face expenses such as occasional
gifts, visit to
Ukraine, fiancée visa and marriage later on.
Ukrainian women are
clever and understand very well that what they seek rarely comes with the
men in their early twenties, so do not worry too much about the age
difference of up to 15 years. If you are over 50 and are interested in
marrying a 25 years old Ukrainian girl your chances become small but not
hopeless. Your look is also important to some degree. Ukrainian women are
not after a movie star, so it is not about your good looking. It is more
about your politeness and decency. A Ukrainian woman appreciates an
elegance and clean appearance. Do not send her your photos where you look
messy or unshaven, that would not be good for the relationship you want to
Being divorced is not
that important at all. Having children is not an obstacle either. What is
more, if you were raising children as a single father, your Ukrainian wife
would devotedly do her best to become a caring mother to your kids. In
this way, she would expect you to act the same to her child if she has
one. Still, Ukrainian women believe that mutual children are the corner
stones of a stable family, so be ready that your Ukrainian wife would be
eager to bear a child for you. If you do not plan to have children, make
it clear from the very start of your relationship to avoid her
disappointments. Keep in mind Ukrainian women are jealous, so she would
possibly not be happy if you keep close relations with you ex-wife, having
family dinners with your ex-wife would not be a good idea for your
Living in a small city
or village may be a drawback in the eyes of a young lady coming from a big
Ukrainian city like Kiev (Kyiv). But as most women in our agency come from
smaller Ukrainian cities, they will fit in your environment perfectly. No
doubt, they would expect to have some social life as your wife, be
introduced to your friends, relatives and neighbors, enjoy some
entertainment with you, and have a chance to see larger cities in your
country … and that is very normal, isn't it?
So you have found your
ideal woman. There is certainly chemistry between the two of you. She is
clever, nice, warm, down to earth, beautiful … simply, she is perfect.
Here comes the bigger
challenge for you … keeping her. By now you have maybe gone through a
number of dating sites and marriage agencies. Don’t let your achievement
and efforts go to waste. Make sure that your love is a keeper.
So what to do
Leave behind anything
you learned from dating sites you joined before. Once you are together, it
is up to the both of you to work on your compatibility. Start all over and
discover everything about her again as if you have never communicated with
Don’t compare her to
other women you contacted before. Be aware of the fact that that she is
her own unique self. There might be stuffs about her that you may find
unusual or different. But just relax and you may in fact recognize that
these are the stuffs you miss the most when she is not with you.
Know a little about
Ukraine history. Remember your Ukrainian woman opinion, attitude, outlook
and thinking are shaped by the difficulties, hardships and experiences her
people and Ukraine have had in the past and you will be able to know why
she thinks the way that she does.
If you understand the
Ukrainian traditions that your woman grew up in, you will be able to find
out the things she would find good, interesting, bad or unpleasant. Keep
in mind that some Ukrainian women are old-fashioned and conservative;
accordingly do not easily open up about delicate and sensitive subjects
such as sex for example. If you are sensitive about this, then any
Ukrainian woman will appreciate you more.
Try to learn some words
and phrases in Ukrainian language, at least some words like (thank you),
(Hello) (How are you) or of course (I love you). This will show that you
are willing to do simple and nice things for her. This also shows that you
are prepared for a committed and serious relationship.
Stick to your woman.
This is maybe the top advice for you. There is no justification for
dishonesty and cheating. Cheaters are not worthy to be forgiven and
excused. Ukrainian women, like other women around the world value
faithfulness and honesty above everything else. Without sincerity and
honesty there can be no trust, without trust, there can be no
relationship, love and … marriage.

for Ukrainian women to get married at 18 or round that age. The purpose is

is simply the tough living conditions in Ukraine that make them grow rapid
in social manner or adapt.
