So, the following classification might be helpful: • "Family-Oriented" Woman.She is looking for a sincere relationship and wants to create a real stable family with a husband who will love her, understand her, and care about her. She would like to have a safe enviroment for her family and - partially - this makes her look for the future husband abroad, because it is considered that a foreigner can have a much more stable situation (socially and financially), than a Russian.Men who travel to Russia are often interested in Russian women (and many of them – we estimate 30% – come specifically for that reason) and Russian women – in general – are not against marrying an interesting foreign man.There is demand, there is supply, and so there is a "Russian bride" marketplace.In most cases, these agencies have a database of women who want to find a foreign husband and a database of men who want to find a wife from another country.The marriage agencies make money by selling entries from these databases to men and women, who want to find a partner.
She will most likely not want to leave Russia, because it is very important for her to be able to show the new husband to her girlfriends and to be seen. She despises Russia and Russians, so her main goal is to emigrate.
(We're not talking about accidents here...) Probably a desire to change something.
Changing location can be very beneficial and meeting somebody from a different culture can be a unique learning experience.
The information on this page tends to be more about Russian women for foreign men, than about Russian men (after all, this section is called "Women in Russia"), however, it might be interesting for western women as well and all the categories below can apply to the Russian men brides as well.
It should be pointed out that here we talk not about all Russian women, but only about the women, who deliberately engage into looking for a foreign husband (either through the internet or newspaper ads or by attending parties etc.).
