Are the Ladies Serious About Marriage?

25. March 2011 by Christy 0 Comments

“Are the women on HotRussianBrides.com serious about marriage?“ It’s one of the most common questions we hear at HRB and one of the most difficult to answer as “serious about marriage” can mean different things to different people.


To some men, “serious about marriage” means a willingness to marry right away. Perhaps after a few weeks of courtship, perhaps after a few months, perhaps after the first visit. While some ladies may embrace immediate matrimony, others may prefer to take their time. Does this mean the slower moving ladies are insincere or not serious about getting married? Of course not. They simply want to be sure before taking one of the biggest, if not the biggest, steps of their lives.

Remember, Russian women typically give up a great deal to marry a foreign suitor. Though most men will still be able to keep their jobs, see their friends and family, and otherwise live life as normal, the women often give up everything and everyone they have ever known to move halfway across the world. They must adjust to a new culture, learn a new language, and learn the ins and outs of an unfamiliar country, all without the local support of their family and friends. Therefore, is it really so strange that some women wish to take their time before agreeing to marriage?

It’s also important to remember that “serious about marriage” doesn’t mean willing to marry just anyone. Despite common myths and stereotypes that say otherwise, Russian women aren’t desperate to leave home, nor can they be purchased from a catalog like computer speakers. In other words, a man can’t simply point to a hot lady, send her an email or two, and expect that she will marry him if he wishes. There must be mutual attraction, respect, and a basic courtship.

Are the ladies serious about marriage? Yes, in the sense that all of the ladies on HotRussianBrides want to get married someday and are actively seeking a lifelong partner. However, “serious about marriage” does not necessarily mean a willingness to get married immediately or a willingness to marry any man who shows an interest.

To prevent frustration and misunderstandings, gentlemen should communicate with the ladies on HotRussianBrides.com about their marriage hopes and dreams, rather than assuming a woman is on the same page. It’s the best way to find a compatible partner.
