Mail-Order Brides Are Brainy

Tuesday, February 2, 2010 17:31 GMT

MANCHESTER, England (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Russian mail-order brides have more to offer than just good looks.

Russian mail order brides are often thought of as tall, sexy, blonde women with big boobs and no brains.

Stuart Smith, author of The Russian Bride Guide (Scruton Publishing Company) says that while mail-order brides are hot, many are also educated with college degrees.

They just happen to want a “traditional marriage,” something many women in the U.S. aren’t looking for these days.

According to Smith, women born and raised in Russia during the ’80s are more attracted to marriage because of their strict upbringing during the Soviet era.

They appreciate the structure and rules of marriage as an institution.

Smith says Russian women face a shortage of grooms in their country, where it’s tough to find attractive men with similar family values.
