Lena is a "stay at home wife" at the moment, because she needs to care for our son Daniël.
She is becoming mightily bored lately and we do have some discussions now as her frustration grows.

Luckily, summer is approaching fast and thus she can go to her ex-home (as she calls it) soon and have some relaxation with Mama!


In life we have to make many choices and having children is a major decision. Of course normally that responsibility falls mostly in the woman's shoulders. I expect we all recognise the importance of their job, because it is their daily job and very consuming looking after our children, and yes they do get fed up doing it but the truth of the matter is that someone has to do it!

Can't Lena have or find some personal interests or a hobby to avoid boredom?

My ex wife when we had young children she also managed to make fluffy toys to sell them and also for 2-3 hours a day went out teaching English and I was looking after the kids.
of course during summer time was very different.

Does she have any friend's..... like other mothers around?

Coffee time was in regular use in our house with other English mother's visiting her and that was the time for me to escape out of the house...... [biggrin.gif]

Do you think FSU women are not capable of doing something more with their time than cleaning the house?


Not sure how you came to the conclusion from my comment that I cant afford a stay at home wife or that FSU women not are capable of doing something more with their time than cleaning the house. In fact, I find your post above just plain weird. [rolleyes.gif]

I am sorry but my comment wasn't directed to your personal circumstances but was a general observation and a question for clarification to the implication in your comment, which I understood to mean, if you can't afford to take care of your wife staying at home, then why you bother looking for a Russian wife?

As about the rest of your comments in my reply to Mark, I made clear that Russian and women in general can do a lot of other things to avoid boredom.

So why my post is weird?

Did you by any chance missed the meaning of my comments?

Don't make the mistake that because Russian women are sophisticated and intelligent, that they are somehow cold and independent. Expect civility, nor servility. Expect feminine, not feminist. With all their strength, they are still women who want a strong man to lead and protect them. But, they want that leadership in the form of compassion and example, not an iron fist.
In my opinion those are wise words indeed . . . Although a little rough around the edges, I like to think I am a 'gentleman' and my expectations and actions would be as described above.

So let me please make a comment.

I know the UK and the job application process. I am a well qualified mid-50yr old graduate engineer working mainly in the pharmaceutical manufacturing field. It is a cut-thoat business and only the best survive. I've managed long enough however, I have seen good times and hard times and redundancies but I have a good CV/Resume . . . . I have never been out of work for long.

Consider this . . . what is the process if an foreigner wanted to re-locate to russia?

I think probably the same rules would apply, a working knowledge of the Russian language, an understanding of the differing cultures, a lowering of initial expectations . . . and I suspect all the other problems of being a foreign worker in in an alien country.

Anyone with first hand experiences of the job application process in Russia they would care to share . . . ?

Just a thought . . . I am open to any comments. It is a two way thing, it is not all about bringing the lady to your own country . . . is it?
Basically, working in Russia is not a problem for most ex-pats, one only needs the correct visa, and a knowledge of the language...

Visa’s,

There are several types of visa which one can use,

The foreign specialist visa/work permit, is only for those who’s declared taxable salary is in excess of 2mil roubles per annum, there are still very few such specialists, and they are mainly scientists, investment bankers etc..

The standard work visa, which is applied for by an employer, these take time to get as they have to be approved by the government, and are issued on a quota basis, and the need for such an ex-pat to do this job has to be approved, and justified..

Working cash in hand on a business visa, has for a long time been the favourite of many ex-pats, but it is now getting more difficult to work on such visas and the problems which occur when caught are not nice, and could lead to a long time ban, and its going to get much more difficult to work on them...

Then there is the invitation visa which follows onto a Temporary residence visa and work permit, this can also be a double edged sword, if a girl friend makes the invitation, then the TRP and work visa fall under the quota system, whereas, if a Russian spouse makes the invitation, then the TRP and work visa does not fall under the quota system....

There are many other pitfalls which one should know about, but I will leave them as they only become relevant when one has decided what one is doing or going to live and work...

This is only a guideline for info, and in reality it is a little bit more complex and time consuming than I have described above
HTH...
