Marrying an older man is not a problem with many Russian women. However, it is not their specific desire to marry an older man as it is sometimes asserted. The fact is that the greater the difference in your age, the greater the difficulty will be in your marriage as a general rule.
There are a lot of reasons for that. Contrary to my expectations, I found that some of the Russian women I met were less mature than their American counterparts of the same age. One reason is that most single people live at home, where mom and dad are still making a lot of decisions for them.
If you are forty something and you marry a twenty something whose interests are that of an American teenager (discos, shopping for clothes, et cetera), how happy are the two of you going to be in your relationship?
Are you up to the libido demands of a young woman? Do you have the energy and stamina to take her dancing after a day of work, while she sits at home waiting for you to come home so she can have some fun?
Generally speaking, the older the woman, the better your chances are of having a lasting marriage. Yeah, the twenty year old’s on the website look pretty and have cute figures.
But to her, your offer of marriage and a new life may be just an adventure. After she gets her green card and grows bored with the day-to-day living of married life, she may leave you for someone who she thinks is more fun.
