Why do so many young Ukrainian women looking for husbands already have children?
I'm wondering why do so many young Ukrainian women looking for husbands already have young children. I understand their cultural desire to have children by their early 20s, but why have their relationships with the fathers failed so early in the relationship? I would think if there is a shortage of men, they would try to work at salvaging these marriages. Are some having children out of wedlock simply to have a child by age 22? I would think that when a child is at stake the parents would try to work out their differences. Some of these women have children only 1-3 years old. Can you shed some light on this topic?
I'm going to have to speculate on this one, but I would not be so sure that the marriages failed due to a lack of effort to salvage them or work on their differences.
MANY MEN there are alcoholics and unfaithful husbands, so I can easily see how that would lead to relationship failure.
About having children young... I think they just get married and have children. The idea of a woman wanting to wait until they're better established, or for her to get a career started before having children is rare.
And don't think the out-of-wedlock thing is intended, but rather just happens.
Anyway, I hope that sheds some light on the subject, but again, this is a little out of my "specialty" :-)
