Do Russian Women Make Happy Homemakers?

15. February 2011 by Christy 0 Comments

Some men are attracted to international dating because they hope to find a wife who will be happy as a homemaker. Many fellows believe that Russian women are a perfect fit because of the ladies' perceived devotion to traditional family values and their dedication to making a happy home for their spouses.


While there is nothing wrong with wanting a wife with traditional values, gentlemen should always make sure their values match the values of a lady and that their marital expectations are in sync with a lady’s own. Neglecting to do so can lead to unnecessary problems in the future.

Some gentlemen mistakenly assume that because a lady is from Russia or the Ukraine she automatically wants to live the housewife life. While some ladies have no problem tending to a household and raising children full time, others may wish to pursue a career outside the home. After all, education is very important in Russia and some ladies may wish to put their skills and years of study to use for the benefit of their family. If you’re not comfortable with the idea of your wife working outside of the home, that’s fine. Just be sure to have a conversation with your Russian lady before getting engaged or married so there are no unpleasant surprises down the road.

Sure, some ladies dream of being homemakers, but others may wish to pursue a career outside the home. Talk to a lady about her hopes and dreams instead of making assumptions based upon her nationality. As always, communication is the key to a happy, healthy relationship.
