    Marriage!!

    Hi all, thank you for taking the time to read my post....

    3 years ago I was nearly killed in a car accident that left me with a disibility and very low self esteem. My wife left me and life was not much fun to be honest!

    Anyway, last year I met a girl from Russia and although we were just friends things developed between us and we are very much in love....I never thought I could be so happy and the bottom line is that I would like to be able to tell her how I feel in Russian and ask her to marry me!

    Would one of you guys or gals be prepared to do me a huge favour and translate a few paragraphs from English into Russian for me??

    I had planned to do this by PM but in truth although it may sound a bit corny I really don't mind who knows how I feel so will post the paragraphs below....

    Thanks in advance......I'd invite you all to the wedding but I guess I need to hope she says 'yes' first??


    My darling Olga, meeting you has restored my faith in life and I cannot believe how my feelings for you have grown. You are constantly in my thoughts and now we have found each other I never want us to part!

    Despite the distance between us our feelings have grown and I know in my heart that our future lies together as one. You complete me and my love for you grows stronger with each day that passes.

    I love you

    I ask you this one thing - please will you become my wife?


    I am very fortunate that Olga speaks excellent English but I want to ask her to marry me in Russian hence my asking this favour of you all.

    Many thanks, Mark

    Sorry to hear about your disability, here is my attempt at translating the declaration for you. Note that I am not a native Russian speaker, so if I make a mistake, someone will be very quick to point it out:

    Дорогая Ольга, встреча с тобой вернула ко мне веру в жизни, и я не могу верить, как мои чувства для тебя росли. Ты всегда в моих мыслях, и как так мы нашли друг друга, я хочу, чтобы мы никогда не расстались!

    Несмотря на расстояния между нами, наши чувства для друг другу росли, и я знаю в моем сердце, что наше будущее состоит в том, что мы всегда вместе. Ты меня совершаешь, и моя любовь для тебя крепит с каждым днем.

    Я тебя люблю.

    Я одного у тебя прошу - будь моей женой.

    GOOD LUCK (and happy St. Valentine's day!)

    Переводчик из меня никудышный, особенно любовной прозы, но ошибки исправлю

    ...встреча с тобой вернула мне веру в жизнь...
    ...и я не могу поверить, как выросли мои чувства к тебе.
    ...и теперь, когда мы нашли друг друга...
    ...наши чувства друг к другу... (хотя в оригинале нет "друг к другу", просто "our feeling")
    ...чувствую всем сердцем... ("знать в сердце" как-то не по-русски. Можно голосовать сердцем )
    ...будущее состоит в том, чтобы мы были всегда вместе...
    ...ты делаешь меня совершенным (?) ИЛИ: ты меня дополняешь (?)...
    ...моя любовь к тебе крепнет/растёт/усиливается с каждым днём...

    Did you set your language settings on the computer to include Russian? If not, you might very well see gibberish!

    Ahhhhhhhh - no, I didn't. I'm fairly new to all this computer malarkey and thought that Vista would cope with cutting and pasting - I was wrong!

    I'll check the settings and see what happens....

    Thank you

    God granted me the serenity to accept the things
    I cannot change
    Courage to change the things I can
    And wisdom to know the difference

    The transwer to Windows 95 was more shocking. Especially when you migrate from OS/2
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Marky,
    I hope you have met in person and not just over the internet. And been able to spend many hours together. You might check out russianwomendiscussion.com for information about international dating with Russian women.

    What do you mean by "distance"?

    I guess that means you never met her in real.?

    I'm not doubt about your love.

    but kinda ...difficult to understand the word " distance"
