Are they looking for rich husbands?
Surely, that in Russian like in other countries there are women who are trying to “sell themselves as expensive as possible”. But they do not form the main contingent of the clients of international marriage agencies. In spite of low level of life in Russia, there are rich people not less than in the West. And it is they who are the main “object of chase” for this women. The most part of women who are looking for a husband abroad, want normal, stable and reliable family relationship, relationship that many Russian men do not want. Of course, there are certain material criteria. A woman is ready to move to another country and understand that she will need some time for adaptation, and during this time she will ahve to depend completely on her husband. But this criteria in most cases are not as high as men think.
Back to top
Do most Russian women work?
Yes, they are. The thing is not in only financial necessity and the wish to have financial independence, but also in the necessity to see fullfilled their potential abilities. Russian women as the women in developed Western countries want to have education and find the work that they will like. Some of them have their own business and profit that is equal to men’s. All the same, almost any Russian woman dreams that her work to be a way not to earn for life but an interesting and amusing hobby.
Back to top
Do Russian women prefer older husbands?
It is difficult to answer this question unambiguously. AS a rule, a man in a Russian family is older than women for 2-8 years. There are women who prefer men of the same age. There are more common goals and interests with such man. Women-leaders prefer men younger than they as it is easy to be the head in such family. But there are those women who are looking for a man much older than they. These women want to see near them not only a man who can provide for a good financial level, who has achieved something in this life, but also a wise ‘father’ support and leadership.
Back to top
Why are Russian women looking for a husband abroad?
One of the main reason why russian women are looking for a man abroad is that Russian men do not want to take responsibility and build family relationship. According to statistics, for each 5 Russian women who want to marry there is only one man who wants to marry. Also the question of fatherhood is very acute in Russia. Most men in Russia do not want to live with their children and to receive real money for upbringing their children according to Russian laws is practically impossible, That’s why women, opposite the popular opinion, look abroad not prosper life but possibility to create a normal family and grow children.
Back to top
Do Russian women make good wives?
The notion “good wife” , I doubt, depends on the nationality. It is more a queston of individual compatibility and adequacy of mutual demands. But, nevertheless, Russian women have two big advantages in comparison with Western women. first, most Russian women put the family higher than their business and career. they can value a man who can create stable family and really be a father to his children. The second advantage is that Russian women are more oepn and ingenious in showing their feelings and wishes, including sexual.
Back to top
Are the Russian women religious?
After 70 years of atheism it would be difficult to call Russia a religious country. At first, all manifestations of believing in God were prosecuted, then, during the time of Perestroyka, most of population went from one extreme to another. A wide number of sects and congregations appeared- from pagans to mormons. Now Russian people are tried to impose Russian Orthodox religion but not too successfully. But ignorance of religious rituals does not mean that they do not believe in God. Many Russian women believe in God, though they do not attend church.

What is the difference between Russian women and Western women?
If to go to this question from physiological point of view, there is not difference. But there are mental distinctions. If a man who live in the West and who has a family, children and wife, has often higher status of credibility and rating than single men, in Russia it is more related to women. That’s why Russian women try to marry and retain their husbands almost at any cost. Russian women also do not try to compete with men in businesslike characterand prove their independence. Visa versa, they look for a strong husband who could support and protect them.

Why do not you have any statistic information on the site, how many times each girl was contacted? I do not want to write to her if she has more than 5 men contacing her. I do not want to have big competition.
We do not do it on purpose. First, it is not fair to pretty girls, they must have a choice, and besides, we do not know to how many other agencies the girl has registered and how many letters she reseives there. By limiting her we make her to apply to as many agencies as possible. Secondly, but not less important, you do not know the men who contacted her, she can be contacted by Turkish or other Asian men, and all other men see that she was contacted by several men and do not contact her, but she does not want a muslim as her husband or too young or too old man. She has the right to have her own wishes and preferances.

Will it be difficult for a Russian woman to adapt to a new style of life?
The ability to adaptation does not depend on nationality, but on the peculiarities of the character. There are women for whom any even insignificant changes in their life become serious stress. But they as a rule can’t make up finally their mind to leave Russia, each time finding for this different excuses. For those, who does make up their mind, adaptation is just a question of time. Of course, there are different things that help a woman to adapt to live quicker- make her not stay at home but do something outside, go to different courses (driving, language, some profession), invite friends home, go from time to time together to dine.

Do Russians know English or other foreign languages?
Russians do not need any other foreign languages in their everyday life, although everyone learnt at least one foreign language at school. But Russians are teachable and they can learn language very quickly.One third of the girls speak quite well, one-third speak poorly but well enough not to rely on an interpreter and one third do not speak but all can read well. In the girl’s profile the knowledge of English is rated from 1 to 5. Level 2 indicates that the girl can read and write. Level 3 indicates that girl speaks poorly but well enough to communicate without an interpreter. Level 4 indicates that girl speaks rather well.

Why are the Russian women so desirable?
The Russian women are down to earth, highly educated, family oriented and not ruined by unreasonable expectations. Age difference is not an issue with them. They are very mature for their years and view older men as more reliable, stable and secure. Russian women dress completely different from western women and they look like girls from Hollywood. Russian women prefer mini-skirts and make-up and don’t like style of dressing of western women -jeans, T-shirts, trainers. However, it’s not only the dressing style that differ Russian women from Western ones, but their personalities.
The main difference is that they are much more patient and can tolerate things that Western women will never be able to bear. Their motto is ‘The world doesn’t owe you a living, you have to earn it’. The Russian women will rarely leave a bad (really bad) husband because of the fear to live on their own. They are more considerate and dependable. On the other hand, they are partners, not competitors. They are very supportive and sacrificing. Russian women are well groomed, stylish and intelligent (as are Russians in general)

What is the most important to Russian women?
Women in Russia as it is everywhere are different. That’s why it is meaningless to talk about what is the most important for them. But if to look only at the women who apply to marriage agencies, their priority is quite understandable. These women want to create a family and have children, they want a strong man near, a man with whom she felt secure. Unlike Westerm women, Russian women who want to marry do not tend to compete with a man in strength, intellect and business like qualities. They are from the beginning ready to give him priority in this and follow him.

Do girls return to Russia after getting married to an American because of homesickness?
Very, very rarely. Of course, in the first few months they go through a period of homesickness but they get past it. Arriving in a foreign country, a Russian woman has a lot of problems with language. She has to be used to different customs, traditions and rules. The first few months she definitely won’t be working but staying at home. She is not aware if her knowledge and skills are worth anything. However, if she realizes that she can get a good job, you may be surprised.
Back to top
Do girls run off after you bring them over to USA?
No! You are the sponsor of her visa and she must marry you and only you or return to her country before the end of 90 days. If she runs off or marries someone else she will be in violation of the visa and will permanently lose status and be deported. The girls all understand this and are not going to accept a visa invitation if they don’t think the sponsor is a viable candidate for marriage.

Can I invite her to the U.S. without meeting her in person in her home country first?
No. You must have photos taken together in her home country to prove that you met or photoes taken in any other country. The more different pictures together you have , the more easier for you it will be to make the fiancee visa for your Russian bride. You can make the visa for your Russian bride using the services of laywer, but of course it is much more expensive than by any other way. You can buy the kit for about 100 dollars in many places, in the kit you will have forms you need to fill in and recomendation how to fill them. Also, you can use the person who specializes in making visas or fill the form yourself. How long is the visa good for? Three months. If the girl marries you she can stay, otherwise she must return before the 3 months expire.

If the girl has a child, does the child also need a visa?
No. The child is included on the girl’s visa.

Can I marry the girl in Russia, not in USA and return back with the Russian wife?
Yes, but in this case she must apply as an immigrant (spousal petition) K-3. The fact of the matter is that the K-1 process (fiancee visa) is subject to a quota system, the K-3 process is not… and both are subject to the identical time constraints for processing the filers paperwork. There are a couple of benefits to the K-3 many are not aware of:
The K-1 requires the fiancee to wed within 90 days or return to her homeland, so this requires the man to immediately file paperwork for her permanent residence documenting the marriage. If she did not get an exemption travel stamp placed in her passport when she entered the country she cannot travel outside the USA using her Russian passport until she receives her permanent residence paperwork. This has nothing to do with a Green Card. A Green Card requires the filing of a separate document as the Green Card is what is required to work in the USA if one is not a American Citizen. Once the Fiancee and American Citizen are married to obtain both permanent residence and a Green Card there are different forms (each going through a different process independent of the other) that must be filed and these request are not processed simultaneously, since they are independent of one another.
A Green Card and Permanent Residence status are mistakenly used interchangeably but they are entirely different in nature and scope. A person can have permanent residence status from a K-1 or K-3 and still not have Green Card status. In most states in the USA in order to obtain a drivers license for example a person must have a Social Security Card. If one has documented permanent residence status this is a simple process as one simply sends a copy of their status when they file a application for a Social Security number. If a person does not have permanent residence status when requesting a drivers license they must go through another documentation and verification process by the States Department Of Motor Vehicles that they are in the USA legally and that process is state dependent.
The K-3 process does require the man to provide documentation that he is single or legally divorced, go through the same filing and documentation process a Russian Citizen would to be married within Russia. They must assure the wedding is conducted by a person who is legally authorized and recognized by the Russian authorities and on file within the area the wedding is held then the wedding documentation must be filed and on record within the Russian legal document system so it can be verified later when the K-3 is submitted. This is not as difficult as it might appear to be. A footnote to this is that a Priest or a person representing a Church or Religion may not be legally authorized to perform civil wedding ceremonies for this purpose. They could certainly marry in a church but may need to also do a civil ceremony to assure all the documentation is legally submitted and accepted into the Russian document system such as a court of records.
However the advantage of the K-3 for the American Citizen is that once the K-3 is processed his spouse has automatic residence status upon arrival in the USA and he does not need to then file any additional paperwork to the American INS. Nor does she require a exemption authorization to travel stamp if she wants to leave the USA, she can travel immediately. If he wants her to be able to work, then he would need to file for a Green Card work permit after filing for a Social Security number using her permanent residence status in the same process the K-1 requires for a Green Card. A non resident person who does not enter the USA on a K-1 or K-3 wanting Green Card work authorization status goes through a entirely different process since their Visa is neither a K-1 or K-3.
The processing of a K-3 is no harder, more expensive nor lengthy in nature, it is just less popular because it is not understood by most Russian ladies nor American men. The key factor is of course to assure the person conducting the wedding is recognized by the Russian authorities, somewhat like a American Justice of the Peace is authorized to do. Then copies of the wedding documentation needs to be notarized and this should be done in both English and Russian.
As a footnote for the K-1 process is that the lady entering the USA on a K-1 visa submitted by one specific man for her on her behalf can NOT marry a different American man once in the USA. The American INS has upheld this decision on many occasions since the INS considers it fraudulent. So if a Russian lady marries a different man after arrival here on a K-1 she must return to her homeland and start the process again but in this case there are legal issues between if she could use a K-1 or a K-3 because in the USA we have both Civil and Federal law. Civil law is at the state level and since she married a American in a State she would be considered legally married to him by that state. But the INS would still take the position she has no legal residence status even though she is married to him.

How long does it take to obtain K-1 (fiancee visa) or K-3 visas (spousal petition) and how to do it?
There are K-1 and K-3 kits a man can find on the Internet for a fee of less than $100 to submit the documentation himself or he can pay someone to fill in the forms for him, yet he will still need to provide all the documentation. It makes no difference if a clerk who understands the forms does this or if one pays a expensive lawyer to do it, they are still filling out the same forms, but it cost a lot more to have a lawyer do it. When it comes to having a K-1 or K-3 expedited no attorney can do that for you, it is not possible as they have no standing within the Federal INS service. Any individual can do the same as any attorney can when it comes to trying to expedite the K-1 or K-3. The only know way to really elevate a persons filing that the INS may react to is for the American man to contact his local Congressman and Senator, then ask them to write a letter requesting a status on the filing using the INS filing number provided when the Regional processing center notified the man their filing was received and they have no additional questions or problems with the filing.
The spouse of a permanent resident might obtain a visa more quickly than waiting for a marriage-based visa if, for example, they:
have a potential employer in the United States
have parents or adult children who are U.S. citizens
would be willing to invest $500,000 or more in a U.S. business
have lived in the United States continuously since January 1, 1972
come from a country from which they can apply for the Diversity Visa (known as the visa lottery), or fear political persecution in their home country. untry.
The kits one can purchase on the web really provide the forms, what one needs in terms of documentation and how to fill in the forms. These are nothing more than a straight forward explanation, along with the forms one can find on the INS website to do the same thing or you can call them a laymans tool to fill in the forms.
A note on this is that there is No Universal Standard Processing Time For All States. The INS has processing centers set up on a Regional Geographic Area and the man must submit his request to the proper center that is responsible for his Geographic Area within the states. That means people on the Eastern, Central and Western states use different centers. Each center has it’s own processing time which is determined by the number of filings pending to the number of people they have to process the request. So on the East coast a center may process the paperwork in 3 to 4 months while in the central USA they may take 6 months, and this is only the first phase of the processing process. When a Regional Center processes your paperwork, once that is complete, it is then forwarded to Washington DC, then in turn forwarded to the American Embassy in Moscow or the Embassy your lady will use depending on where she resides in Russia, a CIS country or other country. Once the paperwork is received by the Embassy then the clock of time for processing starts all over again and it is dependent on the backlog, security investigations, background checks and other requirements like interview scheduling by that respective Embassy.
Once the Embassy interviews a lady then she will be told that her application is approved or disapproved, then told to return home and she will be notified by mail when she can then travel to the USA and they will not provide her a date when this will be. This is entirely up to the Embassy and their backlog. In 2003 a new requirement for this process has been implemented and that is all applicants must be fingerprinted using an electronic (no ink) fingerprinting system which fingerprints the Index Finger of each hand. This becomes a permanent part of their Visa, Passport and Permanent Residence documentation.sidence documentation.

Why do the women write in their profile that they want financially secure husbands? Does it mean that they are after your money?
In Russia not many peole have savings big enouph to live on for several months without work, especially to live in Europe or USA. That’s why women who want to create a family with the foreigner and follow him to his country understand that they will need for some time depend exclusively on him. That’s why they write that they want for financially secure husbands. If course, there are those women who pursue only selfish ends (profit) in any acquaintance. But fortunately, there are less and less of them looking for husbands in marriage agencies in Russia with each year.

How can I make a Green Card for my Russian bride?
First there is no such thing as a Green Card, it does not exist. The term Green Card came from a small card that used to be issued primarily to people from Mexico that allowed them to travel and/or work in the USA beyond a 50 mile radius of the Mexican Border with the USA. It was then expanded into a generic term to describe any documentation in general that would allow a foreign national to live and work in the USA for any reason by people who obtained one. So the term became a term that was used extensively in the USA by the population especially those who held it. But the Green Card itself is no longer in use, it was changed a long time ago to a document(s) that may or may not be green in color. The term Green Card should not be used in conjunction with the K-1, K-3, H-1B or other Visas. But it could be used to say a person is authorized to work in the USA legally, even though that authorization can be of any color. A person holding a generically described Green Card may not be a permanent resident, they could also be on a time limited work visa and their marital status to anyone does not apply in anyway to a Green Card. The other reason I break this out separately for you is that most men, nor the ladies really understand that the man under the K-1 or K-3 must file a separate request for the lady to allow for her to have legal work status and this is independent of the forms one files to get her permanent residence status under the K-1.This work status previously involved two government bodies the INS service under the USA Treasury Department and the Department of Labor coupled with the Social Security Department for a person to work legally in the USA. It was not by the INS Department by itself. For a permanent resident to have such status they must also obtain a Social Security number and pay into the Social Security plan but a non permanent resident does not need to have a social security number if they are here legally, but they may be subject to USA income tax and taxes on their income in their homeland also. Shortly after the September 11th incident in the USA another Cabinet Level Department was formed called Homeland Security and the INS Department along with all Border Guards, check points and points of entry into the USA is now controlled by the Homeland Security Department while the Department of Labor and the Social Security Department remain as they were before. People in your country may wonder why a Homeland Security Department was formed, the answer is a simple one and that is because of our Constitution. Our Constitution restricts our Federal Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines under the oversight of the Pentagon to the protection of the continental USA, external to the Borders of the USA. Federal troops cannot be used within the Borders of our country for any purpose unless the President and Congress were to modify our Constitution. This was written into our Constitution for the protection of our people from our own troops. In each state there are National Guard troops which report to the Governor of that State and the Governor can use them for protection within the state, but the Federal Government cannot use Federal Troops within any state. So until recently the people in the USA had no Army or forces to protect us internally within our Borders, it was never needed in the past, therefore all problems with respect to enforcement of our laws was left to civilian Police Forces within a City, County or State. County or State.

What is the secrets of getting responses?
The trick is not only to get responses, but to get enough responses to give you plenty of choices. How many letters must you write to find Your Only One? There is no definite answer. One man can write 1 letter and fall in love with the perfect mate, another guy can send 50, and all his correspondence will inconceivably stop after 2-3 letters. The result completely depends on you and the efforts you put in.
If you are good-looking, you will get more responses than if you are old and ugly, it is just natural. Don’t choose women who are too young, and you will ensure that you’ll get some responses.
Some men do get a 100% response; again, it depends highly on you.
The first letter is the most important and you must ensure that it will be special. There is no second chance to make a first impression. Your letter must be interesting to read. Good humor is the best way to make reading fun but don’t be a clown. Never make jokes about the girl’s appearance, her English, etc. Better to laugh at yourself than to laugh at her.
As you have on our site a good profile, you can just show your interest to the girls, show you as interesting person and all the details about you ahd your picture she will read in your profile.
