When it comes to dating, there are many different stages to every relationship and it certainly is true with women in the Ukraine. You begin with the “learning more about each other” phase. Then you will progress to the romantic stage where your relationship becomes more serious and intimate. Then perhaps, after that stage you would like to get engaged and finally married, right? No, it’s not as simple as that. You would first have to meet the family of your sweetheart before you can even start planning your wedding, a tradition of all Ukrainian families.
