Dating Russian women with children
Many men who want to start a family prefer to find a Russian woman who doesn’t have children yet.
Russian women with children
If a guy is young enough, not older than in his early 40s it is realistic and possible. There are many Russian women in their late 20s or very early 30s who would consider marriage to a Western man of that age range and who have no children yet.
When a WM is approaching 50 years old and up, looking for a woman with a child makes a lot more sense IMO. Here’s why:
Since the most realistic age gap shouldn’t be wider than 15 years (in most cases) that puts the age of the women a late 40s to early 50s guy would be searching for in the mid 30s and up range. Most normal RW would have had a child by then. I occasionally come across women in their mid and even late 30s who are childless and through the years I learned that it’s almost inevitable that these childless women have “issues”. Initially my clients get excited about finding a woman of that age range without a child, but later always make a decision to move on because certain personality issues do seem to always pop up in the course of correspondence and getting to know each other.
So basically in most cases there is a reason why these Russian women are both single and childless… Off course some couldn’t have a child for health reasons but I haven’t come across any one of those. Usually it was more about being selfish, self-absorbed, or having psychological and even psychiatric issues.
Another thing to consider is that most local Russian men in their 40s and 50s would also prefer to date/marry a Russian woman without a child so the competition for an attractive, childless yet “normal” woman in her 30s can be pretty tough. On the other hand there are plenty of beautiful single Russian women with a child in their late 20s and 30s who have limited options of serious male prospects in the FSU (Former Soviet Union) and who would definitely consider a Western men if they find him attractive, interesting and trustworthy and if they feel that he can provide love and security for both her and her child. Paying lots of special attention to the child will help you build a relationship with the mother. It’s a package deal and you have to learn to accept the child as your own and treat him/her as such. This is a must in order to find the way to her heart and make a marriage work (it goes without saying that you have to treat the woman right, off course!).
Marrying a Russian woman with a child can be more complex
One thing that you will have to deal with is getting a written permission from the child’s father (if he is alive) to leave Russia or Ukraine to become a permanent resident of another country. In most cases this can be easily negotiated though.
Kids require a lot of patience, love, attention and understanding. If you don’t have any experience raising kids of your own, have a short temper, little patience and are too “set in your ways” you might want to think twice about marrying a Russian woman with a child.
