I want to resume this topic. Yes, we are constant for 3 years. We periodically have meetings in neutral territory. I wonder: how can he bear my bad character? ;D :chuckle: :ROFL:
I think that it is compatibility, comfort and passion.
I think guest form of marriage? What do you think of our korefei?

Why not have a longer time together in the same place. A short stay together enforces a vacation-feeling in which your natural mindset will be more positive than otherwise.

If you are together say 3-months, then you will also experience normal life together with everyday things and you get a much better feeling if you want to be together.

Of course, we have certain obligations to our family. I’m not ready to live in Austria for 3 months. The biggest problem is Russia visa! Please, information. How do you live in Russia for 3 months?

I know as an American citizen, I can get a multi-entry private visa that will let me stay in Russia up to 6 months at a time.  I don't know about the EU countries.
What is worse than not being able to get what you don't even want?

Hello boys! I missed you all.
I bought tickets for sale in Istanbul. A man is flying to my hotel, 50 years old, Austria, Vienna. I do not know how to react. We have different numbers.
Please, recommendations.
Age between adults is never really a serious factor. Stability of character and an understanding of what each expects of a relationship is the A to Z of any partnership. Judge the suitability of people the same as shopping for a car. Just balance the price with what you want it for and what it can perform. That's all you need to know.  :nod:

Valenki, I don't think I agree with that entirely. I think it is less important than many people think, but it shouldn't be discounted entirely.

Three are some matters which are more personality-driven and so become part of the overall compatibility, but there are more practical matters. For example, a younger partner must consider the prospects of finding themself alone after the death of the spouse. It is one thing when it happens due to unexpected reasons such as illness or accident, a whole other matter when it is expected from the outset of the relationship.

Then there are health issues that are not going to aid compatibility. I am not going to get into the carer/nursing implications as, an evenly matched couple contend with that so, IMHO, again that's a personality thing. But if a person simply becomes infirm with age and has a spouse significantly more able-bodied. That's not a great thing to look forward to and demands quite a lot of one's partner.

Sex is likely to be an issue. Although since I lost weight and had the all-clear on my heart, my horny gland is well and truly turned back on, I am not the same as I was at 30 or even 40. How does that work out into the future? For some couples it isn't an issue, I get that, but for some people, it is very important.

Social stuff comes into it too, we do tend to cluster and socialise with folks of our own age. That's hard to manage for a couple with a shared social life and a wide age gap.

Then there are the cultural issues, dealing with acceptance by family, again, sometimes that's not an issue, other times it is. Right now I am facing this. For the first time in a long time, I have a girlfriend whose mum is about 4 years older than me and her dad not much more. While I think she overstates the issue, the GF is very wary about introducing me to her family. I understand, I have been through it before and it can be tough. In families where acceptance is important, this is a real problem.

Well yes, I did say "Age between adults is never really a serious factor" but I also said ...

Stability of character and an understanding of what each expects of a relationship is the A to Z of any partnership. Judge the suitability of people the same as shopping for a car. Just balance the price with what you want it for and what it can perform. ....
... and that pretty much covers all of the points you've touched. In fact, that is one of the positive aspects of Slavic women particularly if they are/possess more of the traditional senses of responsibility, family honour,  and non-materialistic values.

 I am a romantic but my wife is definitely not (typical of Slavic women) but she takes her role in the family very seriously. She may not be gushing & lovey-dovey but I know that she cares for me more than any other woman I've ever met in the west. I'm not going to bore you anymore with that stuff but what I said about "stability of character and an understanding of what each expects of a relationship" really is the A to Z of any partnership. The need for sex may rise and fall (no pun intended) but it's superficial when you come down to it - a stimulant like coffee or pivo - if it's available and you have the urge .... but if not ..... that's OK too.

And about illness and health and old age. I take it for granted that you are in a solid relationship with your wife. Right? What would she do if your leg needed to be amputated? Would she run off and leave you? Betty Sue back in Nebraska might pack up and do a bunk but I don't think Olga will. But shit, you know that already.

Get a 3 month business visa. Easy to get an invitation from a visa agency.  I know several in Moscow. It depends on the foreigner's home country.  Americans can get a 3 year tourist visa where you have to leave the country every 6 months (for just a day even).  Alot of teachers in Moscow do this ;D

Do I understand correctly, that the official foreign husband of a Russian wife does not have benefits for the Russian visa regime?

Pazhaulsta Annushka, ya rad vam pomoch.

There are many expat guys in Moscow I met who are married to a Russian woman.  I think they can get permanent residence but they need to be married in Russia.

You should look up some expat forums on Facebook. There are many more members.  If you need it send me a private message and I'll send you the link.

New Russian law came into force yesterday ( I think) Where if you are married to a Russian women with kids and she has residence you can apply for a perpetual residency permit which can be renewed on the internet each year .. something like that also there is no need for the Russian language test.. Though the language test is not a big problem some centre's give you "Assisted service" Yes Russia is wonderful..:) So you can pass that with not to much of a problem..

Thanks! Mark and Svetlana have a pronounced form of guest marriage! Without formalizing an official relationship!

In modern society, guest marriage is understood as marriage relations, which can be formalized in the relevant state authorities, in which, however, the spouses live separately and do not have a common household. The basis of such a relationship is mutual fidelity and mutual assistance. A similar format is increasingly found in modern society.
There are many reasons why a man and a woman do not consider it necessary to live together: the impossibility or undesirability of living together, the unwillingness to change one’s usual place of residence or lifestyle, work characteristics, benefits, etc.

I consider this option of relations more acceptable for me! tiphat

He can live in Russia very easy even become self employed and pay little tax..

Simplified tax system register as Self employed and pay 6% tax on overall sales Ideal if your working online , consultancy or something like that with little expenses and will have to pay some thing like 36,000 Roubles a year towards pension.. you could both live much better than any where else in Europe where they will clobber you for tax , steal your money and have you working like a slave until your in your 70's .. I don't know of any foreigners who wish to return to the UK there are plenty of Brits who have been living in St Petersburg for quarter of a century.. ;D

Steveboy, thanks for the addition. tiphat I don't want to adopt foreign children! ;D :chuckle: :ROFL:

Foreigners also study in Russia. For example:
Ryazan Higher Airborne Command School named after Army General V.F. Margelova.
Interesting Facts:
One of the cadets of the school became the president in Africa. The black guy Amadou Tumani Toure, who studied the wisdom of military science in Ryazan, returned to his homeland - to the tropical country of Mali. And he led a military coup there. Then he ruled the state for about 10 years.
In Mongolia, the Minister of Emergency Situations is a graduate of the 1992 Special Faculty, General Dumaagiin Namsrai.
