Why Do Ukrainian Girls Marry at a Young Age?

Say hello to SweetEllen!

How often do you get hit on by a lady 10 or 20 years younger than you? Sometimes? Rarely? Never? Well, on HotRussianBrides.com, you’re likely to experience this phenomenon all the time! This makes some men skeptical about the ladies’ true intentions.


Why are such young, beautiful women so eager to find husbands?


One reason is that Russians live by a different timeline than most Western men may be used to. “Most of us finish high school at 17, graduate from college at 21, and get career and family going by mid-20s,” writes Svetlana Kolchik, deputy editor-in-chief of the Russian edition of Marie Claire. Some girls begin hunting for husbands while still in high school.


Another reason young women are so marriage-minded is because it’s such a popular topic in Russian culture. Romantic rituals have been passed down for hundreds of generations, which ladies practice during holidays such as Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Also, training centers are now trending in Moscow and St. Petersburg to “bring back femininity to the world and help women regain their female energy to attract the men of their dreams and build harmonious marriages.”


Lastly, young women want loving gentlemen by their sides because many still embrace traditional gender roles. “Even if a Russian woman earns 10 times more than her boyfriend, she will never let it show,” says Kolchik. “We masquerade our incredible inner strength and endurance with a soft, at times very vulnerable, façade. It’s part of our feminine mystique: we play it weak knowing we are perfectly capable.”


Significant age differences are commonly seen with intercultural couples, so don’t let a number negate your chance at love. Chat with women of all ages to have more success, and more fun, on HotRussianBrides.com!
