I have been married to a wonderful and very beautiful Russian lady for the past 11yrs. They are very traditional, always open up doors for her, bring her flowers, always pay her way for everything, bring her gifts, always treat her as a queen. They believe in having what they call a "Real Man". I lived in Russia for 3yrs working as a government contractor, and in Russia men are men, and women are women. So do not treat her as you would these independent American women.
