Divorce rate of RW after 5-10 years
« on: September 22, 2018, 12:31:22 AM »
I have to believe it is higher than the general population.  I know three couples and they are all divorced.

Thoughts?

What particular group are you looking at?

FSU ladies in general, FSU ladies married to foreigners or FSU ladies married to foreigners and living abroad?

Depends who you are, and what you got to offer, personality, looks, and money wise. I dated two russian women, both knew i wouldn't get married unless i had kids, they were game.

People always wonder what the odds are. Everybody is different so odds aren't the same for everybody. The only marriage that should count is your own.
Fund the audits, spread the word and educate people, write your politicians and other elected officials. Stay active in the fight to save our country. Over 220 generals and admirals say we are in a fight for our survival like no other time since 1776.

I can't tell for other people, but I just crossed the 8-year mark, 2 to go and you can count this one up as "married" :)

I have been married for over 10 1/2 years to an FSU woman.   You can count this one up as "married" :)

This post is interesting. I was once married to a Vietnamese woman. I knew a number of men who also married a Vietnamese woman about the same time as I did. We were all young and the age gap was small if any. For a reason or reasons I have never quite figured out nearly all of us got a divorce at the twenty year mark. It seem to be a rash of different reason but the fact so many of us got a divorce at about the same time seem like something was happening time that we want not spend our aging years with the woman who raise our first family of children. I never had any children but the other dudes did. If you make it past the first few years I think you will find the truly big test comes at twenty years or shortly there after. Many of the men on this site are older than we were when we got married so it will be interested if that has any effect.

Not sure how easy official stats are to be had but you could get a rough hands up on this forum?

We've been married a little over 5 years now so you can add that to the list of members above. It would appear that there are more 'still married couples' than divorced, based on this thread?

Oh yes, how is the pretend marriage coming along? I assume she and sprogg are still in this country notching up days "married" towards full residence/citizenship while not living with the importer for several years?

What's to 'pretend' .. ?

We made it QUITE clear we were separated at the time of applying for their permanent residency application and neither of 'em are a burden to the UK tax payer .. quite the opposite .... but then some folks on the net post an believe in any 'ol guff ...!

1 is now a UK citizen - earning well - repaying his student loan and ' importing 'a Japanese wife ;)

T'other has her own biz and even surprises me with her acumen

Knew you'd 'bite' ... and I dare you to not allow the post through :))

I don't know about the rest of you but I will have been married 19 years next March. I also have two mistresses here in Yoshkar-Ola as the regional (Mari-El Respublika) ratio of women to men teeters around 6 to 1. I am in paradise!

May I remind you that long time ago, on my hobby "friendly" board, I posted a photo of the road you were temporary residing...... "not your actual house"..... and you went mental, in fear that I will disclose the full address of your house, because some people were after you, for a nice scam you were involved?

I really enjoyed that day and the laugh I had at your expense!

the divorce rate today is over 50% in most countries regardless
of who what and where they married.
I suspect length of marriage has little to do with anything IMO.
I am 5 years now and if it makes people feel better to say 8 or 10 or 20
great. Life changes, people change, divorce happens.
In todays world at every age group and scenario.
If your happy be happy simple.
don't worry about something that may or may not ever happen.
There is nothing permanent except change.
