have met this beautiful girl and have decided that she is the one. You ask
her to marry you, which she agrees and you begin the procedure and paper
work for bring her to your country.
Once you are married
this is what she will experience and you will see:
1- If she knows how to
drive a car and possibly had a Ukrainian driver license, upon beginning to
drive in your country she will feel worried and anxious. Every time she
gets behind the wheel and sees a police car, she will become very
concerned. It will take her a couple of years to forget the awful and
unpleasant experiences she had with the corrupted Ukrainian police
officers, who do stop drivers anytime, with no reasons.
2- In first few months
she will drive only on the neighboring roads thinking that she could never
be brave enough to drive on a highway.
3- After arriving and
getting settled in, your Ukrainian wife will be frightened to answer the
phone because of her limited language skills.
4- More than likely she
won’t know what a yam or sweet potato is, nor what they taste like.
5- She most likely,
will not like peanut butter.
6- Your Ukrainian wife
will look in the local stores for what she considers staples, such as
“Salo” (A traditional predominately Ukrainian food consisting of cured
slabs of fatback) “Tvorog” (a cottage cheese made in a special Ukrainian
way) and other Ukrainian food stuffs, but never find most of them. This
will make her very eager to find any Ukrainian stores in your city.
7- She will hate all
the breads sold in your city’s supermarkets and most of the bakeries and
will complain about how much she misses the bread she could buy in
8- She will pay close
attention to putting on her makeup, and wear a miniskirt or a very nice
dress and high heel shoes just to go to the supermarket.
9- Your Ukrainian wife
will spend a lot of time trying to find other Ukrainians in your city with
whom to communicate with.
10- First few months
she will feel more like a tourist and regularly take a camera or a phone
with her. She will send photos to her mother, father, sisters, brothers
and friends almost every day.
11. Because of her lack
of English, Spanish, German, etc skills (Depends on where you
she becomes bored when you are watching your favorite television show and
you have to frequently ask her not to bother you while the show is on.
Now lets fast forward
one to two years and see how life has changed for your Ukrainian wife:
1- A police car is now
just another usual car on the road for her.
2- She drives anywhere
and doesn’t remember any of her fear about the highway.
3- She will speak
easily on the phone with your and her English speaking friends.
4- Your Ukrainian wife
has learned how to prepare nice dishes from yams and sweet potatoes.
5- Very likely she
still doesn’t like peanut butter.
6- She stopped looking
for Ukrainian stores.
7- Your Ukrainian wife
may accept the breads but more than likely won’t … and will stop eating
bread altogether :)
8- When she goes to the
supermarket, she probably is wearing a T-shirt, a pair of jeans and tennis
9- Your Ukrainian wife
begins to loose contact with most of the Ukrainian friends she found
during her first months in your country.

herself as a tourist anymore and become satisfied and complacent about her
surroundings that she doesn’t think to send photos to her mother anymore.
11- She has her
favorite TV shows and asks you don’t bother her when she is watching them.
Quotes from the web:
- I found my
Ukrainian wife through an agency and I can tell you my experience with
Ukrainian women. Some years ago, I lived and worked in Ukraine for one
year and I was really surprised at Ukrainian women. Not only are they the
most beautiful women I've ever seen, but they are very traditional,
intelligent, and resilient. They take very much pride in they way they
look, you will never see a Ukrainian lady going out in public wearing
sweat paints with hair up and no make-up, as so many American women do.
American women have became too independent, too rebellious, and they will
divorce they're husbands at the drop of a hat. Ukrainian women are very
traditional, they believe in family, and they take very good care of
they're family. It's interesting to hear my wife's opinion on American
women, she says women here in the states act like men, that they want to
be the "man" of the family. I do believe that American men and Ukrainian
women make a great match. My wife and I have been happily married for
10yrs and still going great.
- A Ukrainian wife
will stick with you through any turn of fortune … OR … A Russian wife will
do anything you ask because they have no other choice ...
- Ukrainian women
are (in general) beautiful, intelligent, well educated, and most of them
could be evidently good ("perfect"?) wives... BUT: NOT these "brides for
sale"... it's usually some kind of... prostitution. And what does it mean:
"Are Ukrainian women similar to us in hygiene"? What a strange question...
:) Yes, they are... I mean WE are :). I'm Ukrainian. :) They practice GOOD
hygiene... :) Moreover, they are usually stylish, fragrant and... speak
- I have been
married to a Ukrainian for 2 years, and it is working wonderfully. There
are cultural differences, so it takes an open mind on both parts. All the
hype about "they marry you and dump you" is a statement made by people
with no experience in obtaining a visa to the US for another person, and
have a complete lack of understanding of US immigration law, and how
divorce affects immigration.
