After online dating for a little bit, you will eventually meet the perfect Ukrainian woman, and probably propose to her. From your experience of dating Ukrainian girls, you most likely know that Ukrainian brides are not the same as other women. So, if you are planning to get married to a Ukrainian woman, or you are already married to one, continue below to learn what Ukrainian brides are unique for.
- Family is Extremely Important
The first thing that Ukrainian brides are notable for is their love for family. Like Asian women, Ukrainian girls are told from a very young age that family should be their main priority. That being said, you can expect her to rely on her family for many things, such as advice and a direction of what to do with her life. Also, a Ukrainian bride is going to want to start her own family as soon as possible. So, you must be okay with the idea of having kids.
- The Marriage is Destiny
The second thing characterizing Ukrainian brides is their belief in Destiny. In addition to the importance of family, from a young age, Ukrainian women are taught that Destiny has pre-determined what is going to happen in their life. So, since a Ukrainian lady has agreed to marry you, she most likely believes that you, and the marriage, were brought to her by Destiny. In addition to your marriage being Destiny’s work, you should expect her to rely on Destiny in the future. If something doesn’t go as planned, such as creating a family right away, your Ukrainian bride will most likely believe that Destiny has something to do with it.
- Traditional Love Beliefs
The last thing you should know about Ukrainian brides is their traditional love beliefs. The following are a few things that Ukrainian women are taught about love:
- In marriage, a man is the head and the woman is the neck.
- For the household, a man is the provider, and the woman is the housekeeper.
- For raising children, a man is too busy working, so the woman is the caretaker.
- For making money, a man should always earn more than a woman.
- In love, a man should always love more than a woman.
Do you see an overwhelming trend in the above list? Ukrainian brides seem to have a very traditional approach when it comes to love, marriage, and everything that comes with it. Their approach is very similar to women’s approach to love in the 1950’s in the United States. Even though the majority of Ukrainian girls have a more modern attitude to love, they were still brought up with those traditional values, so they still have some effect on them. So, when marrying a Ukrainian woman, you should keep in mind that your Ukrainian bride may expect you to be the head of the household, and be the bread winner, while she is the one who keeps the household tidy and in shape.
