Why are Russian Mail Order Brides in demand?
If you are from the Western countries, then you might know that dating and marrying Russian women is quite an achievement. It is not because Russian ladies are merely trophies. It is because it takes commitment to get a young and single Russian woman to be your girlfriend, let alone a bride. We can see such a trend rising in other regions as well, such as Asia or the rest of East Europe. Although seemingly elusive, several love stories online serve as evidence that the partner is always a Russian lady. This begs the question – what makes them so amazing and sought after? The most obvious answer would be their unparalleled beauty. Since debating about their beauty would take up an entire lengthy article by itself, we will save that discussion for another time. Still, it is worth pointing out that many people have sung praises of their beauty for a long time. Since they are so beautiful, you can tell one in a crowd. But why are they exclusive only to Russia? Admittedly, such beautiful women should be more common. To address that question, we need to take a look at history itself.
Back in the Medieval ages, people saw the world differently. They were not aware of genetics or advanced biology at all. It was not their fault, of course. Back then, people attributed strange phenomena to magic, instead of trying to come up with a rational explanation. Back then, witch hunting and the Holy Inquisition were some of the facts in life. Since people believed in magic, it served as a tool to label beautiful women as witches. After all, in their mind, how else could they explain the cause of the woman’s beauty other than witchcraft? Women who were too smart for their own good were good targets as well. Their reason was that they made a deal with the devil through witchcraft to achieve unparalleled beauty and a sharp wit. To top it all off, fair trials did not exist back then. When superstitious belief was a part of life and science was lacking, one could hardly disprove a witchcraft accusation. And so, some of the best women had been erased from the gene pool purely based on jealousy. Their fates were at the stakes, burned to a crisp. As a result, the Western European countries did not have a lot of beautiful and intelligent women among their population. However, things in the east was a bit different.
Although Russians were also wary of witches and witchcraft, they had a different perspective on the practitioners. While their western counterparts believed that witches were beautiful, Russians depicted witches as old and ugly women. In their stories, they always portrayed witches as unsightly women, and they often got accused of witchcraft. They used to describe witches as old women with crooked teeth, unkempt hair, ugly shape, among other things. How did they have such a different perspective? One could say that Russians believed that witchcraft was a sinful act, and so the price of wielding such an unholy power would be the disfigurement of the body. After all, there must be a price for those who made a deal with the devil. Having power, intelligence and beauty seemed to be too good of a deal anyway. Because of the difference in their reasoning, there were many Russian women for marriage. They passed on their good genes to the later generations until they populate the country as we know today.
Historical facts and gene did influence the presence of beautiful women, which would be how many men would describe Russian ladies. However, they did not explain the whole story. After all, the gene alone did not dictate how healthy they lived their lives. Good genes alone cannot help them maintain a good look despite their living conditions. Therefore, a second explanation comes to mind.
Russian women are not only beautiful by birth, but they are also intelligent. They know that they have to keep exercising to maintain their fit and perfect body. Their shapes alone cannot get them far, and so they need to find dresses that complement their perfect shapes. To accomplish that, they need to understand fashion and keep up-to-date with the trends that come and go. Her wardrobe consists of gorgeous outfits that bring out the best out of her image. They basically dress to impress. They do not want to look good only during significant formal events. They need to look good all the time, whether they are doing chores or going for a quick jog. Even when they are sleeping or doing some unsophisticated labor, men would still get curious about what they are doing and admire their beauty.
