Ukraine Girls And Traditional Family Values

By Lera Cupidonova

Western countries may regard traditional values as quaint, but not so for Ukraine girls. They view them as valuable and respectful, although others say that Ukrainian women are twenty years behind the rest of the world. Many wonderful qualities remain in Ukrainian culture because of their reverence for traditional values. They love family, food and hospitality. Many original sayings and amusing quirks sprinkle themselves throughout Ukrainian culture that are wonderfully fresh to the ears of outsiders. Many times Ukrainians prefer traditional roles in matrimony.

Girls from the Ukraine are brought up to avoid attracting attention to themselves in public. They typically speak softly. Sitting or stretching out on the floor may be regarded as uncouth. Once you get to know them, they are warm and gregarious, but so do not be fooled by first impressions. Ukrainians value public reserve, saving exuberant behavior for the home.

Ukrainian culture has evolved over thousands of years and therefore has many amusing beliefs and superstitions. Generally raised in an orthodox faith, it would not be unusual, however, for a Ukrainian to advise you to sit between two people of the same name. They regard that as lucky. This is but one example of Slavic sensibility opening new windows on everyday situations.

If Ukrainians are famous for one attribute, it might be hospitality. They generally love to entertain and freely invite guests to their homes. Bread is an important part of their culture as well. They may gift a loaf of bread with salt on it to their guests to bid them welcome. For weddings, they bake korovai, a traditional Ukrainian bread, symbolizing prosperous new beginnings. Their love of family runs deep and they often look for ways to stay in touch, either though exchanging visits or through phone calls.

If you are one of the lucky ones invited to dine with Ukrainians in their homes, don’t forget to pick up a small gift on your way. Flowers or wine might be good choices. Something from your country could be most welcome. If your hosts have children, chocolate might be the best gift you could choose.

Often it is economically required for both spouses to work outside the home. This can be stressful for traditional girls from the Ukraine. Often, grandparents will lend a hand in caring for the children and, in return, grandchildren care for the elderly in their families. A high level of devotion to family remains at the heart of Ukrainian culture.

Do not look for a Ukrainian girl to waste time with small talk. Though reserved in public situations, they are frank and can speak their minds plainly when they wish.

Treating Ukraine girls like ladies may be a wise idea. Holding doors open, surrendering seats on buses when women are standing and paying for dates are just a few examples of the standard by which Ukrainian women wish to be treated. Many still hold traditional ideas of marriage where men are strong and women are intelligent and beautiful. This translates into many of their ideas of marriage and family life.
