Russian women marriage - Behind Every Great Man, There Has To Be A Great Woman
Famous Russian Women in the past and Present...
[A Russian proverb and, more famously,] A line from an Annie Lennox and Aretha Franklin song, beloved by modern women and fans of "The First Wives' Club" (one to rent for your wife in years to come!). But let's take a look at some of the great Russian and Ukrainian women standing, not behind, but besides, foreign men, giving their all!
Famous Russian Women In History
Ayn Rand, for example, born in St. Petersburg, was in marriage with an American, Ohio-born actor, Charles Francis O'Conner. The couple married, three years after Rand moved to the United States, on April 15th 1929, and remained in marriage until O'Conner's death in November 1979. Rand was one of the foremost writers of her generation, and yet, in supporting her oftentimes unemployed husband, a formidable force to reckon with in her private life as well.
Anna Pavlova is another Russian woman celebrated for her talent, as a dancer, and also for her goodness and loyalty to friends; including Victor Dandré, who was regarded by many to have been her husband, though this has never been proven.
Amongst dancers, tennis players, cosmonauts, intellectuals, and gymnasts, there is no shortage of Russian and Ukrainian women who stand out and were immense pillars of strength for their families. These two women, Ayn Rand and Anna Pavlova, just happened to be married to foreigners.
Famous Russian Women Today
Whilst Anna Kornikova and Maria Sharapova may be single, they are regarded for their beauty (above all), their talent (second), and their personalities. Neither one is like their wild-child counterparts in the States, such as Lindsay Lohan or the Olsen twins. These beautiful Russian girls are focused professionals, possessing the gentile qualities typical of their nationality.
Other women who catch the eye are Elena Kondakova, a Russian cosmonaut who has logged 178 days in space; Olga Korbut, a Soviet gymnast, recognized for her efforts after the Chernobyl' nuclear disaster; Nina Ananiashvili, a renowned Georgian-born dancer and figure skater; and Bella Akhmadulina, who is a famous poet, translator, and essayist. These women may not be married to foreigners, however, they have each proven their great worth to society in a way that is symbolic, almost, of what Russian women and Russian marriage have to offer in general.
She's Always A Woman To Me
Each one of these women has talent, spirit, discipline, grace, and beauty. These are their weapons, if you will. Compassion and dedicate are other traits to note, and these are what give the Russian woman her most compelling power: loyalty and devotion to her family and loved ones above all.
Regardless of how far success takes them, Russian women are beautiful on both the outside and inside. They are special; treasures to the people lucky enough to have them in their lives. And you can be one of the lucky ones!
