90-day fiancé – the media propaganda against Russian brides

The popular TV show, “90-day fiancé,” features couples where one partner has applied for a K-1 visa and must decide to marry within 90 days before the foreign partner’s visa expires. One of the most memorable couples from the show is Anfisa, a Russian woman, and Jorge, an American man. Anfisa is known for her lavish spending habits and desire for a sophisticated lifestyle without earning her own money, which puts pressure on Jorge to financially support her.

However, it’s important to note that Anfisa is not representative of all Russian women. In fact, according to the OECD, Russian households are the most thrifty among all OECD nations. This means that the average Russian woman is not like Anfisa and is more likely to prioritize financial stability and independence. Many Russian women work hard to secure a good job and be self-sufficient.

In conclusion, while Anfisa and Jorge’s relationship may make for entertaining television, it’s not an accurate representation of most Russian women or their financial habits.

A real Russian woman’s life

As you can see the reality of Russian women is very different from what you can see on 90 day fiancé. Russian women have real jobs and don’t expect men to financially support them throughout their life.
