I was recently invited to a that had just that topic. The host had chosen two ladies who had had bad experience. Mixed with the statistics of divorces among foreign marriages they even managed to present that Turkish men are apparently the most loved ones in Russia (or was it the other way around? ) в at least according to the Russian statistics. On my side of the fence they had invited \”service providers\”. Our position was that getting married is pretty similar to finding the job of your life. My neighbor who runs an international marriage agency talked us through the mistakes people are making when deciding to link up for life. He made the point that if you cannot sort out your life in your home country; donвt think it will be easier by finding a foreign partner. Despite the fact that less foreigners are now coming to Russia in many cases the headhunter can fairly quickly spot when the only driver for a particular candidate wanting to move to Russia is a woman. And very often I then have to remind them of my fate which pretty much was the same when I originally came here. I had to learn that just speaking Russian and having a girlfriend in this part of the world didnвt qualify me for a job in Russia. In days of localisation this will probably have become even more difficult. It also seems to me that like when finding a new job we get the most basics wrong. We forget to do the analysis of the potential employer (wife/husband). Do I really want to spend the rest of my life there just after two good interviews (a great night out in the club or a month of chatting over the web). Is a three months trial period enough? And what about references – too often we forget about them completely or get them from the wrong people.
You will agree that an ex-husband of your new love may have a different view than your new mother in law may have? Finally coming back to our original topic. The Russian female representatives in the programe made several references to the soft facts and values. They mentioned that a Russian women would like to see \”the protector\” in their second half. Like in the world of recruitment it is important to figure out the cultural differences and the values attributed to it. This also helps to avoid legal battles as both examples in the show had negative experience regarding who got the right to keep the children. Those companies and wives and husbands who consider the above seriously will also master their foreign relationships with all their opportunities and challenges and the number of foreign marriages in Russia will remain a very relevant topic. PS: feel free to join one of our cultural awareness trainings to learn more about the differences or watch the programme.
What are Legal Rules To Marry With RussianВ Women? If you resumed to take your international relationship to a new level of commitment, there are certain laws to marry a Russian lady.

Marriage in Russia Republics of the former Soviet Union have different requirements for registering a marriage with a foreign national. In Russia the rules are written in the Family Code.

Marriage in a third country Many Russian women and western men opt to get married in places with uncomplicated requirements to prospective spouses such as Cyprus, Fiji, or Czech Republic. Once the couple got married, they simply obtain an Apostille and then legalize their nuptials at home. love large celebrations but getting married is more important than a large wedding. Thus, your Eastern European fiancГe will be happy to have a small ceremony if this means she has her beloved manвs commitment. For marriage a Russian woman is ready to sacrifice sharing the wedding with family and friends. This is why a romantic service on a beach at a holiday resort may be just the right thing if you donвt want to wait for months for a prospective partner visa. There are hotel packages that make it affordable and you can combine your wedding with the honeymoon.
