Do I Need Money to Marry a Russian Woman?

One pervasive myth about Russian dating is that Russian women are only interested in rich men. This is not true.  A man must offer a potential bride something more than a healthy bank account. However, Russian dating is not cheap and gentlemen cannot expect to meet and marry the Russian woman of their dreams without spending a significant amount of money.


Money Can’t Buy Love

Even if a gentleman is a very wealthy, there is no guarantee he will find true love on a Russian dating site. While there are certainly gold diggers out there, the majority of Russian women are not willing to uproot their entire lives for money alone. Many Russian and Ukrainian women lead happy, fulfilling lives in their home countries and are hesitant to leave their friends, family, and culture behind. Love, not money, is the primary motivation for women who decide to take the plunge and marry a Western man, and love is something money can't buy.


The Costs of Russian Dating

While a man does not need stacks of cash to win the heart of a Russian woman, the logistics of Russian dating make it necessary for a gentleman to have some extra income. Quite simply, Russian dating is not cheap. Men who are struggling to get by will likely find it very difficult to afford the membership fees and chat costs of a Russian dating service. Even if a gentleman is able forgo an agency and chat with Russian women for free, he must still make expensive trips to Russia or the Ukraine and then deal with costly immigration and relocation expenses should he and a lady decide to wed.

Does a man need money to win the love of a Russian woman? No. The majority of Russian women value a man for his charm and personality, not his wallet. However, a gentleman must be financially stable enough to afford the unavoidable expenses of Russian dating.
