Wedded Strangers: The Challenges of Russian-American Marriages
In response to these factors and to the hundreds of letters, phone calls and e-mails that poured in from couples who read the first edition and wanted to share their own stories, Dr. Visson has expanded Wedded Strangers with new material, including new chapters on:
- Marriages resulting from the phenomenal growth of agencies and Internet sites which introduce American men to Russian women.
- Difficulties facing young couples who choose to live in both Russia and the U.S.
- The results of these marriages: a new generation of Russian-American children. The author shows how the couples differ in their attitudes toward raising children and explores the hopes and frustrations of these families.
