Do you have one of those hand held shower massage devices?


Are those not better suited for couples where the man has a problem?

Thank you Popka! Luckily it will not be quite as stressful, as she had come to this country before to marry, but he was a loser, and she returned before 3 months. So she has all her old paperwork, and knows what is expected as far as forms, interview, exam. She knows my job is difficult to get time off from whenever I want. We write every day, and see each other on Skype almost every day. Her ex in Ukraine is trying to cause problems, and I am helping with that as well. I send her photos of many things every day in an email I write for her to read when she first wakes up, and she sends me one before I wake up. She will need to learn to drive, but I told her I will help with that. She knows English, but could learn more, and I can help  with that as well, and I hope to learn Russian and Ukrainian from her. I already have the shower, and I have discussed changes to the house, and that I want to wait for her before I change anything as I want her input, as it will be her house also. I mentioned I need new carpet, and she said she likes wood floors better, so we will need to compromise on some things I think. But I know all will be well :) I see there is a Ukrainian market in the city, and probably other Russian markets, although she strongly dislikes anything with Russia in the name due to the Crimean conflict, and having lost some friends because of it. She is extremely biased and thinks all Russians are bad, although I know they are not. All people are different. I have hired an lawyer to work on our visa, so that also helps. Hopefully all will go very smoothly!

I think he means because of the ability of a woman to wash below much easier, than anything.

Maybe,  :chuckle:  I wouldn't know  ;D. My wife is hot enough to be
a form of Viagra. I know that many FSUW like to wash every
crack and crevice thoroughly before sexy-time.

Still remember our first Christmas. New Year and Christmas together in Ukraine following our marriage in September of that year.  On landing in Kiev back then 99% of the Aerosvit passengers were on route to India.  It felt strange having no one else exiting the arrivals area and going downstairs to exit the terminal all by myself.

Now we are able to fly directly into Dnepr. with Austrian Airlines twice weekly in less than 24 hours.  Really wonderful not having to get from Kiev to Dnepr. instead.  There are daily flights between Vienna and Dnepr., but the best with fewest connections are the twice weekly ones noted.

Wonderful to hear all is going ahead for both of you at this time and wishing you a great life together in the future as well.

Thanks Wes! Sorry I am so late to reply. I haven't been on, too busy with her and with work.Everything was great, and she is an amazing woman! We are both very happy together, and just hope the Visa will not take too long. I am hearing at least December now before we hear back. It's difficult for both of us to be apart for such long periods of time.
