many Western men share their negative Ukrainian and Russian dating experiences, in which ignorance of the mother’s role in Russian and Ukrainian families leads to the end of a relationship or even worse a marriage.
The men tell about that the mother of his Ukrainian mail order bride does not wish often that her daughter goes to the Western country. Moreover, it seems that the mothers make their decision based on some facts talking about foreigners and their bad behaviors towards Ukrainian women for marriage.
In my today’s article, I try to explain the role of mothers in Russian and Ukrainian dating and give some tips how to win the heart of a Russian and Ukrainian “mamochka“.
The role of mothers
Western culture is very different from that of Russia and Ukraine in so many ways, and dating is no exception.
Here the man has to worry about the father and deal with a potentially overbearing mother in law when they get married. In Russia and Ukraine, the girl’s mother decides if the man is worthy of her daughter.
Learning how to deal with "mamochkas"
Here in the West, women usually have to deal with a difficult mother in law, since there are so few moms who think anyone is good enough for their son.
In my experience, every mother wants is for her children to be well cared for and cared about. The cultures are not completely different in the aspect of what a parent wants for their child, but the difficulties arise when the family sees you as an interloper trying to take a member of their clan to a far away land where they can’t keep an eye on how they are doing.
TOP5 tips how to win the heart of each Slavic mother:
In conclusion, I want to say that not every mother in Ukraine and Russia thinks bad about foreigners and their “bad” behavior towards Ukrainian and Russian mail order brides.
There are a lot of women who are open and friendly towards Western men and know that their daughters can become happy with a Western guy.
