Russian Women and the Dreaded Finances
When it comes to Russian women and their culture, they will expect their husbands to provide for them financially. Women in Russia never went through a version of feminism that tells them they need to support themselves in order to be valued. You should be prepared to handle the expenses associated with a wife and future family before you start looking for a Russian bride. Most Russian women are really great at keeping budgets and making ends meet, a skill which they learned after years of hard time and shortages. As a result though, many women in Russia learn to spend while they have money. They like to splurge on luxury items and keep up with the latest fashions. When excessive spending becomes an issue in a relationship with a Russian bride, it is usually because neither person discussed finances beforehand. Also, men tend to inflate their salaries in order to impress a woman. Make sure that you are honest about your salary and how much disposable funds you have each month. Russian women understand what budgeting means so long as you lay down the ground rules.
