Spain occupies a special place in the Old World: this is border area between Europe and Africa, from which it is separated by the Strait of Gibraltar. The unique location of the country at the crossroads between the Arab and Christian worlds have left its mark on the culture, economy, and life of the Spaniards.
Family for the Spaniard is the main value and the main thing. Spanish people do not drop out children and do not understand when children leave their parents. They have taken a wife to live with her husband, and not vice versa. The society condemns the relations without a marriage, and the husbands do not seek love with other women. Incidentally, the Spaniards love Russian beauties because they have their own notions of beauty: to be successful, you need to be a blonde. In the family, both partners work - a man and a woman. Wages are lower than in most Western European countries, but the prices too. Spanish men are friendly and peaceful, life is quiet and unhurried, and the nature is beautiful. Spain is a country of sun-warmth, which Russian women need.
Demographists and psychologists assert that in Russia the number of lonely women who can’t find a dependable life partner is constantly growing. The thing is not in a deficit of men and a loss of many values. Many Russian girls disappointed in men and prefer living on their own having taken up household problems. However, as specialists warn, even having a strong desire of an unsuccessful woman to find a worthy partner – it’s almost a lottery, concurrence here is too high
According to the Spanish national statistics if at the end of 1996 in the country were living only 820 Russians, by 2011, this number had risen to 64,391. Plus a similar number of illegal immigrants. Plus the people who received the Spanish passport and dropped out of the report, and this is 11,523 people. Plus those legalized or have moved to Spain in the past year and a half. In general, today there are about 150 thousand Russians live in Spain. The average age of the Diaspora - 33 years. The majority - women. Most Russian Spanish cities are Alicante, Barcelona, Gerona, Madrid and Malaga.
According to the Spanish law, the Russian woman who married a Spaniard receives a card with a residence permit for five years. However, after years of marriage she has the right to apply for a Spanish citizenship. As elsewhere in Europe, in Spain, you can sign a marriage contract when you are going to marry Russian or Ukrainian woman. It is about the conditions of marriage - from property ownership and till the details about family life and marital duties.
