Want to marry a Russian? This is how you go about it

Not that often you find current articles on marrying a Russian. Pretty basic information but still a good read.

It's a nice article, not overly detailed.
Life ain't nothing but a poker game
And no two hands are quite the same
But I've never seen a winner that didn't bet

And Russian women want to get away from wife beating alcoholic men...

There's always a story.

In the 19-20 centuries, there was a saying in Russia: "Beats - means love."
Please, Uncle, be reasonable. We live in the 21st century. Every other person has a car in Russia. This means that he does not have time to drink Russian vodka.
Every second person in Russia  has higher education and sports. I think to beat sports equipment, there is a great benefit.
I also have a question here. Why the choice of wives, you are guided by the length of legs? Why not brain activity? The gene pool has not been canceled. Continuation of your choice, you will see in the children and grandchildren. :)

Please note, because your quote missed the context. My point was not to say that this stuff was generally true (although there are wife beaters everywhere and alcoholics everywhere. This was a story told by people interested in manipulating the lonely gullible wife hunter with more money than sense.

There's always a story behind every con. There's a story behind every sale. Very often both have a root in some fact but are probably not true in most instances.
