Russian and Ukrainian women for marriage: the age gap matter

Dear friends,

The age gap is one of the most discussed topics in the Russian and Ukrainian dating world. Age-discordant crosscultural relationships can be tough, top that with a Ukrainian/Russian-Western couple and it’s going to be a long and bumpy ride. Having a relationship with a Russian or Ukrainian lady and with a rather elaborate age gap is not the easiest thing in the world. But somehow, many Werstern men seem to be very comfortable with such circumstances, in fact they even like it that way.

I am Krystyna, a Ukrainian and Russian dating blogger.

The “age difference” issue is very controversial. I have experienced most Western men prefer to date Ukrainian and Russian women younger than them. But at the same time, these men ask themselves if such a Russian-Western relationship with a big age gap can work for a long period of time? I’m getting many mails from my readers asking me: “I’m 50, my Russian girl is 25. Can this relationship work?”.

What is the perfect age difference in a relationship with a Russian or Ukrainian woman? Do age and cultural differences really matter, or should love just overcome all? Let’s talk about this today!

In my opinion, age gap may be a point for problems in a relationship with women from Russia and Ukraine. Definitely, crosscultural age-gap relationships are nothing but hard. I can say you that Ukrainian and Russian women feel more comfortable with older men (10- 15 years older) as a rule.

In my experience, Western men enjoy being with a younger woman. On the other hand, a relationship is much more than just fun and games. Is it possible for a 50 year old man to have a successful relationship with a 25 year old woman of Ukraine and Russia? Yes, it is.

But there are three important points in relationships with a significant age difference you should consider:

  1. Different vitality levels
  2. Different levels of life experience
  3. Different ideas for family planning (e.g. you do not wish kids anymore, it can be a big problem for your young wife because Russian and Ukrainian women are very family-oriented)

In conclusion I would like to say that the age difference between a Western man and a Ukrainian and Russian woman is an individual issue. Everyone must know what makes him happy. 🙂
