It's a sad truth but many Ukrainian men suffer from excessive consumption of alcohol, and with it comes a lot of sadness, abuse, and violence for their spouses.Many Ukrainian Women, and their famlies, think they stand a better chance of finding kinder treatment from a foreign husband.In some places like Japan or China one of the gut wrenching challenges of international dating is meeting the family, because it is likely that most girls' families will oppose them marrying a foreigner.
Consider that Kiev alone boasts more than 25 marriage agencies, and you'll understand just how open and acceptable it is for a girl to become a Ukrainian mail order bride.
In general Ukrainians are sort of honored that there women are so hot that men travel from around the world to meet them.
Another reason you may have an easy time winning over your Ukraine babes family is that the economy of the independent Ukraine has been shaky from the start and often a girl's family will be enthusiastic about her dating a "rich" foreigner and you should be very careful about making any promises about money to her mom or siblings.
Even more important is that so many Ukrainian women have married American and European men in the last twenty years that serious foreign men have a great reputation in the Ukraine.
However, I don't imagine that it makes much difference to the average guy, because both Russian and Ukrainian girls are super hot.
