Why Chinese Men Marry Russian Women

20. June 2013 by Dasha 0 Comments

Though most Westerners picture Russian brides with men from Australia, North America, or Western Europe, the ladies of Eastern Europe are also popular among Chinese men. Here’s why more Chinese men and Russian women are tying the knot. 

 

Demographics

First, there is the issue of demographics. With millions more men than women, China is one of the few countries in the world where women are outnumbered. According to a report on CNN.com, approximately 30 million more men than women will reach adulthood and enter China's dating market by 2020. Russia also has a small surplus of women. These skewed demographics help push Chinese men and Russian women across the border.

 

Unique Benefits

Some Chinese men also turn to Russia for marriage because there is a certain prestige that comes with a Russian bride, and because China’s one child per family law doesn’t apply to mixed marriages. There’s also the benefit of securing Russian citizenship.

 

Many Chinese men are also attracted to the perceived values of Russian women. Qin Jianping, 25, told Russian Beyond the Headlines that “Russian girls are more understanding, are very good at housework, support their men, do not look only for rich guys, and are ready to overcome difficulties together.” 

 

Jianping’s wife, Yekaterina Komova, 28, is also drawn to the qualities of Chinese men, saying “they are great at fixing things around the house, they care about their family, and they treat their wives with respect and as their equals.”

 

Love

Of course, a successful Chinese-Russian relationship is impossible without genuine love and affection. While many people can’t imagine marrying a man or woman from across the globe, couples like Qin and Yekaterina believe that soul mates aren’t limited by borders.  

 

“One can find a 'soul mate' at the other end of the world and be completely unable to understand a compatriot living next door," Komova said.
