Dating and marriage customs in russian

Russians (and maybe other immigrant/ethnic groups that I am too lazy to look up) date immediately looking for a serious relationship and for marriage. On the dating habits of young Russians, she said: ”Your attitude is that you are doing it for a higher purpose.A lot of people in the American community seem to date so that they have something to talk about with a friend at dinner.” ”If you are going out with someone for two years and you haven’t figured out some integral part of the relationship and you’re not sure and you don’t know, then you shouldn’t be together.” I’ve noticed this occasionally with American friends, that they’ll date someone for no apparent reason, and break up with them for small slights, like, “She didn’t brush her teeth correctly,” or, “She called her mom too often.” Not exactly, but silly reasons that should not be deal breakers at all. B and I agreed that the key parts of a relationship that you should break up over include whether you can trust the person, whether you think they will provide for your family, and whether you think they are generally a good person.Russian weddings have adopted some of western traditions, including bridesmaids and others.

The ceremony and the ring exchange takes place on the first day of the wedding.As a foreigner, the best way to understand these ideas is to step away from those of the United States and explore these nuances through firsthand experience.In my Russian conversation class, we discussed the idea of men being “the stronger sex” and how they relate to women.Bad reasons not to continue a relationship include the fact that they crack their knuckles too much, the fact that they leave the cap on the shampoo open, the fact that sometimes they don’t put the milk back in the fridge, and the fact that they order cranberry juice at every restaurant they go to.For the record, no one in our relationship is guilty of any of these things.
