A fashion for Ukrainian wives exists in the world for many years. Everywhere there is a myth about beautiful, kind, housewifely, practically ideal women who are born, grow up and live on the territory of Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus. According to this legend, practically every of them dreams of getting married with a foreigner. Even if it is connected with big hardships and a language barrier and a change of place of living. The most interesting thing is that this legend is not far from truth.
In Ukraine from the soviet times there is a special attitude to foreigners formed among women. In the times of the ‘iron curtain’, thereafter in the hungry and raucous 1990s girls and women from different regions and practically all ages were not against meeting a foreign prince and getting married with him.
