Russia: Mail-Order Brides

Anna Ershova shares her thoughts on “how (not) to date a Russian woman”: “According to some of my sociologist friends, many Russian women who marry a foreigner out of material reasons end up getting divorced after they get their new foreign citizenship. In the meantime, they often manage to get an education and a job. Many of them end up finding a man who is interested in things other than their similarity to Victoria’s Secret models.”
