In the West, men may get away with just sweet talking a woman into falling in love with him but in Russia, it takes more than that.You have to add in a lot of gift giving, sprinkled with random acts of romanticism.It’s impossible to talk about Russia without discussing the legendary beauty of Russian women.But let me give you my honest opinion: the hype might not be warranted.The tradition that everyone should love their own home and protect their family is instilled into Russians since the early childhood.Just a few decades ago, it was very common among Russians to play the wedding at an early age.While I agree that there are a lot of incredible women hobbling down the streets of Moscow in towering heels and tight skirts, I think foreigners are often blinded less by their unearthly beauty and more by the level of dedication Russian women have to looking good.

The meaning of the family in Russia is not limited to the husband, wife and children.
It stretches to include grandparents, aunts and uncles, brothers, sisters, nephews and nieces.
