Your Next Step after Moving Your Russian Fiance to the States

Russian fiance
Congratulations if you’re reading this article because it possibly means that you’re about to move your Russian fiance to the United States to stay with you. The paperwork is finished and all you have to do is book the airplane ticket and she’s off! You’re probably thinking that it’ll be happily ever after once she sets foot on American soil but it’s actually just the beginning.

We hate to rain on your parade but there are a few more things that you need to do as soon as your fiance lands. As your Russian bride-to-be may be used to a completely different lifestyle, it's very important she has your full support.Our advice may seem very trivial but believe us when we say that these things will be essential for the success of your relationship.

1.    Explain how things are different.

Everything to her is new, right? So it’s best to sit her down (granted that she has average English skills) and set her expectations. Have a little heart to heart talk just to prepare her for her new everyday life in a new country. This can go wrong if you’re right there and then enforce the DON’Ts that you have. You’ll do it the right way when you simply show her that you’ll be there whenever she needs you to be – if she has questions or when she’s confused with something.

2.    Daily routines.

If it’s your fiances first time traveling outside of her country then she needs to have a routine to make adapting to her new surroundings easier. As a couple, it would be best if you brainstorm the typical day that you might have. For example, you go to work for 5-8 hours and she stays at home to do some of the housework. If this is what you plan to do then show her the ropes before leaving for work the next day. It’s not telling her what to do either because you should plan this as a couple.

3.    Communication and lots of it.

Be sure that you’re working on your communication skills as a couple on top of doing the other suggestions we gave. It’s essential that both of you listen and not just hear what the other person is saying. It’s important to try to understand what the other person is feeling, especially when frustrated. Keep your lines open because this fosters awareness and it just makes your relationship better. Period.

Make an Effort

All of these 3 items basically mean that you have to (like what we said earlier) support her until she adapts to her new life. This makes her transition easier, smoother and faster. You, as the man in the relationship, want to avoid letting her feel scared, alone and depressed now that she’s on a new chapter of her life.
