Attitudes Of Russian Women Toward Marriage
Attitudes of Russian women toward marriage. The reason why Russian women want to marry western men is because they want to have a family and they have not found a suitable mate in their own country.
Russian women are motivated to get and stay married. However, there is a considerable amount of adjustment that must take place to make the marriage work.
You will have to overcome cultural differences, language problems, and other types of misunderstandings. You will need to be patient.
In addition, usually marriages between Russian women and Western men are marriages between two people who hardly know each other.
There is an old saying: Women marry men hoping they will change, while men marry women hoping they won’t. Usually, they are both disappointed.
This is not a situation unique to Russian women – it seems to be universal to all women. There will be friction. Mainly, because your wife will slowly try to change you. And you, of course, will resist changing.
Russian women usually try to take charge of the house and the family.
They see this as their responsibility. This is because most Russian women in fact are the head of the household in Russia.
Many Russian men either were not present in the home or they neglected their family responsibilities in favor of the pursuit of pleasure.
You will be shocked when the demure little sex kitten you met in Dneprpetrovsk starts to show her claws after you are married.
You think she has changed and you don’t like it. You may wonder where that cute little girl that you first met has gone to. Well, that cute little girl is now a wife and she takes her responsibilities as a wife very seriously.
She begins to do what she has seen all Russian women doing since she was a little girl – taking care of their families the only way they know how – by taking charge. And changing you to fit into family life is part of the process.
You will not be successful by digging in your heels and refusing to change. The tips on the following pages are offered for helping you to make this transition.
Nurturing A Healthy Relationship
Most relationships in our life last a few minutes to people we see for a few minutes at infrequent intervals. But what makes life really worth while is for the longer term relationships -- ones that last months, years, or lifetimes.
The simplest definition of the word relationship is a connection between two people. It often includes the feelings of one person toward another. They can be a romantic relationships, a business relationship, good friendships, or a parent-child relationship. All of them tend to be important in all of our lives.
Most people fail to understand what a relationship really means. Many people cannot distinguish between a strong relationship and a week relationship. Also, they have difficulty telling goood relationships from bad relationships. This lack of knowledge is why many people fail to have successful relationships.
A good relationship reveals itself in a person’s life. The person you see humming at work is likely enjoying a solid partnership. But do not expect that everyone you meet will have a good relationship with you, because there are some who enter our lives for only a few minutes.
Self-awareness of the relationship itself is a skill most people must still learn. To avoid hurt and frustration, become good at understanding your relationships. This doesn't mean obsessing on them, but rather learning to see the relationship as an entity in itself.
To help you achieve your goals with your partner here are ten tips that may help you build and maintain strong and successful relationships:
1. Continue to learn new things that will help improve your relationship. Learn to take personal growth seriously. You may find yourself astounding your partner and yourself.
2. Learning to share kindness is important to make a relationship work successfully. The term "give and take” is very applicable because it requires it from both parties.
3. Realize that both passionate love and conflict are not final outcomes but are simply phases on the journey of love. Disappointments and arguments are just events that happen because we need to cure and improve something in the relationship for both partners.
4. Discover new methods to communicate that will make your discussions protected and private. This encourages honest sharing.
5. Always tell your partner what you need and how you feel. No one can read your mind, not even your own partner, so let your partner know when you feel bad about something and why you feel that way. People will not get the satisfaction that they need without first feeling connected or involved with someone intimately. They tend to enjoy being with someone who shares all their achievements and failures in their discussions with them.
6. Have an occasional heart to heart talk about what you both like and what makes you two feel in love. This way you will learn more each other and, over time, about what makes your partner happy.
7. Consideration is also highly important in a relationship. Everyone needs to be considerate of other people' feelings.
8. Avoid things that are not helpful or might even harm the relationship. Some people treat their partner worse than they do strangers, and do things they know may hurt their partner. If you want your relationship to work, then work it yourself.
9. Listen to the things your partner is saying. And appreciate things that your partner does for you no matter how small. Why not say "thanks for doing dishes"? Or "thanks for cleaning the bathroom" to your partner. Little appreciative moments go a long way.
10. When you wake up in the morning, promise to try removing guilt and disapproval of things that often creep into a relationship. If there are times you did not keep your promise, accept it, and apologize to your partner.
These ten tips may seem self-evident to some, but all of us need to practice them in our daily lives. Take what you can and remember that the ups and downs of relationships are almost always better than the flat highway of loneliness that some people face.
Nurture your relationship and it will nurture you in return. It only takes a few minutes a day to put a little effort into it, and the rewards can be magnificent.
