Wife from Russia (or Eastern Europe)?

I lately have been enamored by the idea of obtaining a wench wife from a former Warsaw-Pact country. I spent all of 2008 at the university, drooling over the young women. Among the stand-outs were a Russki (already taken); there is also an Albanian worth investigating, but she was taking 20 credit hours and appears already on the ambition track. Add to the mix I have a 20-something relative who is attending university in Estonia and (his fault) he told me about russianbrides.com (one of many such services). Anyway, lots of pitfalls here, but much opportunity too. Any pointers on importing a ? At the least, I am hoping to have a nice trip to Europe next summer

If you want a wench, it is cheaper by the hour.

Olga sez..."I'll raise BOTH hands so you can see my hairy armpits, my darling American husband!"

European women usually do not shave their 'pits, so enjoy the show.

I doubt most beginning english speakers are going to get the subtext that the word is offensive. Taken from the original meaning it just meant young woman or toddler.

In all seriousness, don't do it. The two guys at work who did won't say they regret it, but the culture shock, the lack of clear communication, the fact she has no friends in this country but you, the fact the neighborhood stay at home spouses will probably not try too hard to reach out to her, all add up to a very challenging relationship. It wasn't long before they started asking the husbands to work their a**es off to get more of their family members into America. The idea of it sounds neat, but the reality is they're just a person like you, and for some reason they really want to leave where they are. I'm sure that means some baggage is coming with her...

I say do it. Then there will likely be another nice looking divorced woman living in relative leisure being supported by her ex-husband.

But more seriously, if you are attracted to young good looking women who don't understand your language very well or your culture at all, try doing what Hobo recommends- move to some archipelago, marry a young woman, and get a $300 divorce if it doesn't work out.

Just don't under any circumstances bring her here, where your divorce will likely cost you $1 million+.

Ha

I think it would be MUCH CHEAPER to invest in a Rosetta Stone language course and become fluent in Russian. That will no doubt give you an advantage........

Back in the early 90s, I went to Russia once for business, and than once for a several week vacation. I fell in love (ok lust) with my beautiful blonde translator, and I had a several conversations about Russian mail order brides with various people. None of the Russians had good things to say about the businesses. Although my translator did know a girl that signuped with a service.

On the other hand I know I couple of guys who married Filipino mail order brides and they are pretty damn happy, and I can certainly understand why.

I am horrible with languages but Russian seems like a particularly tough one to learn.
But a trip to Russia to meet a potential Russian bride might be fun, just keep in mind that they'll love you for your pocketbook. But you knew that.
