    It's not about morality. And I don't care about women dressing like sluts. But from what I've seen on my two trips to Russia. For every young lady who is dressed up beautifully, there is one who looks ridiculous and like a transvestite.

    And if you dress up all the time, then it's not exactly special on a special occaision.

    I didn't mean just morality, I meant that it looks rediculas, just as you did.

    Anyway, this girls you saw they I'm sure just don't understand that they look rediculas.

    It's a cultural thing. In Kazan' a number of the old ladies my female friends were living with kept telling them to dress prettier all the time and wear more makeup.

    Is it something to do with getting married? In the UK, women aren't really bothered about getting married that much. I mean, women get married later. When my parents married in the 70s, my mother was 21 and my dad was 22. My friends who are the same ages would never dream of getting married now. But at the time that was a normal age.

    These хозяйки in Russia were obsessed with asking us if we had boyfriends or girlfriends. And telling us to look nice so we'd get one.

    The first day I arrive - "Do you have a girlfriend"
    Me - "No."

    Two days later. "I'm going to the Kremlin with my friend Claire."
    "Is Claire your girlfriend."
    "No, I don't have a girlfriend."

    A week later. "A girl called Lorraine called for you. Is she your girlfriend."
    "No."

    The same happened when I called the girl back (she's just my friend from my course!!)

    "An English boy called for you. Is he your boyfriend."
    Her - "No."

    In Russia I believe they still marry, settle down earlier, and getting a man is more important than here.

    Anyway heard the song by Лазурный Берег called "Хочу замуж"?

    hahaha, no I never herd this song

    I just trully don't know what to tell, you I guess they were asking you that just out of curiosity or politness.

    I really don't know if it is really accepted to get married early there now, my mother actually got married late she was 38 and gave me birth after 40.

    It is just a stereotype i guess, you're young you're beautiful so you need to get married, i really don't know.

    Хочу замуж

    Песня Н. Заичниковой

    Я помню - мама говорила,
    Что всё должно быть красиво.
    Белое платье, букеты роз,
    А по спине мороз.
    Но как-то не получалось,
    Я первая всегда сдавалась,
    Но почему - сама не знаю
    И теперь себя ругаю.
    Хочу я замуж, замуж хочу,
    Да ты не бойся - я всё оплачу.
    Надеть бы белое платье, пойти б танцевать
    А ты, противный, всё зовёшь в кровать.
    Хочу я замуж, замуж хочу,
    Да ты не бойся - я всё оплачу.
    Надеть бы белое платье, пойти б танцевать
    А ты, противный, всё зовёшь в кровать.
    Рано мне пока жениться,
    Вдоволь надо порезвиться,
    Я обещаю - веришь ты,
    Что сбудутся мечты.
    Мой милый, не притворяйся,
    Если что задумал - сразу сдавайся,
    Это я с виду такая простая,
    Всё равно женишься - я себя знаю.
    Хочу я замуж, замуж хочу,
    Да ты не бойся - я всё оплачу.
    Надеть бы белое платье, пойти б танцевать
    А ты, противный, всё зовёшь в кровать.
    Хочу я замуж, замуж хочу,
    Да ты не бойся - я всё оплачу.
    Надеть бы белое платье, пойти б танцевать
    А ты, противный, всё зовёшь в кровать.
    Хочу я замуж, замуж хочу,
    Да ты не бойся - я всё оплачу.
    Надеть бы белое платье, пойти б танцевать
    А ты, противный, всё зовёшь в кровать.
    Хочу я замуж, замуж хочу,
    Да ты не бойся - я всё оплачу.
    Надеть бы белое платье, пойти б танцевать
    А ты, противный, всё зовёшь в кровать.

    I sometimes hear such things about g- or b-friends too. It's very common especially when you're very young and your parents raise their eyebrows like "Is she...?" Cultural feature, eh?

    Girls of my age that I know now are mostly married. When I graduated from my school 6 years ago, several classmate gals of mine got their husbands, too.

    In urban Russia we prefer to marry later in our lives or not at all, in rural areas the attitude is different - they tend to get married earlier there, in their mid 30s, I believe.

    I wonder if this is due to the fact that all Russian women carry machine guns!
