    Do Russians marry young?

    This month my favorite Russian (Plushenko) got married, He is 22 and his bride I believe is 20. So of course the skating forums are ablaze with speculation about why they got married so young (maybe shes pregnant etc. etc. )

    And someone claimed that its typical for Russians to marry young, is that true?

    I think people shouldn't get married until they are in their 30s if at all.

    That's a joke right? Right?

    I think 25-30 is the best age to marry. And I think most of Russians think so
    My English isn't so good, зато с русским все в порядке ))
    I'll be very thankful, if you correct my mistakes.

    I think in today's Russia the trend is to get married in your mid to late 30s for men and late 20s to mid 30s for women or not to get married at all.

    See for youself: I got married at 29 and I was the last single gal among my classmates Some of them were already in their second of even third marriages. Actually, it depends on place. In big cities life is much more closer to western style.

    Such hostility. I make a meaningless, nonsensical comment and you react to it with so much emotion. Bizarre. (I've erased my little muse just the same.)

    If someone said something I thought was absurd I would tend to ask them what they meant rather than resort to name calling or telling them they should die. I guess its just a question of character.

    heh, this reminds me of smt that happened to me.
    about 2 years ago i hooked up with a hot russian in spain, had a nice time, then both went home and things moved on.
    anyhow back in november i was in this night club in moscow (грязные танцы) and i happened to bump into her (quite an impressive chance encounter given the size of moscow). so we hug, exchage words and then she said 'come meet my мужик' (being i didnt know what she ment) i got confused and thought she had dragged her old dad along or something, and then i guessed future husband!
    i was very suprised coz shes only 20.
    we arranged to meet, my power-nap lasted too long, i was 40 minutes late and i never saw her again

    Oh darn, you gave up so easily Biancca. I was hoping for a big battle between you and my old adversary The Dog. That would have been not boring!! You see Dog is kind of like our forum virus hunter. You can't take things too personally here at MR. Otherwise I would still be waiting to be covered in poop or strafed by cranky old Joysof in a Spitfire.
    Anyway, I bet you're cute when get angry.

    I didn't give up I never thought talking to a dog was worth my time in the first place.

    The only person it was ever any fun to fight on here was Bentley but I guess hes done with this.

    I see nothing wrong in marrying at a youthful age, as long as it is true love etc. However, with age comes wisdom!
