The rule – what is yours is ours, what is mine is mine works perfectly for Ukrainian girls and they don’t rush to change.
They don’t find it disturbing or against women’s rights like some women of other European nations do.
If you have ever learnt a foreign language you may have noticed how much more difficult it becomes to speak it when you are emotional or very tired. For the majority of international couples it’s the girl who follows the man, that’s why I assume you will leave abroad, not in Ukraine, therefore in your everyday life you will be speaking the language of the man rather than the Ukrainian language.
That’s why during those unfortunate moments whilst arguing you will have a huge advantage, you will be able to say quickly and clearly what you want.
But surely there are men who genuinely fell in love with Ukrainians the ‘normal way’.
So don’t worry, you will not abuse a Ukrainian by offering to pay for her order but you might lose her respect by telling her “Men and women are equal so we pay ”.
Ukrainian dishes take a long time to cook but it is worth it.
Of course, it doesn’t work for all girls but the fact stays the same – the majority of Ukrainians earn less than any other European citizen.
Therefore if in your country you are considered poor in Ukraine you will probably be rich.
