The most fascinating product of studying abroad is the discovery of different mentalities in a culture.
Specifically, in Russia, society has completely different views of women and their expectations.
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.
I felt like a "head of state" or "father of the bride".
As we were talking, I thought “If this conversation were public, it would definitely offend the greatest number of people possible. ” We decided that Americans are way too picky when they date, for all the wrong reasons, which is why some Americans tend to marry late. As a result, my dad is now the youngest out of all the parents I know and he is chillin’ and enjoying me being married and is able to help us in the full capacity.
Reading your account brought back many happy memories.
Thank you for providing an insight into Russian ways and traditions.
Young men and women would get married at the age of 18-20 while studying in their second or third year at the university.
According to the latest statistics, the marriages between Russians of the same age are much less common.
