Economic and social factors drive Russian women to seek life and love abroad, according to The Japan Times. Just like any woman or person in general, they most likely want to find personal happiness and opportunities to thrive economically.
Russian women often seek to marry foreigners and leave their home country for the promise of a more comfortable life. The Japan Times describes Russia's social and economic scenes as dismal and inopportune for women seeking husbands and happiness. The expansion of Internet access in Russia has made it easier for its women to receive help from marriage agencies to leave the country for a new life.
