About work or not,,,,,,
Find the right woman to start with, it is the most important part of marrying abroad.

I have more than twenty years of experience with FSUW.

Here at home in these years, I have met with more than 50 small families with a FSU woman.
Mostly ordinary men in ordinary jobs with medium / low income.
A lot of the women came with a child or children, and I think all of them started working as soon as they were able to.
Many being self employed, or working menial jobs, like cleaning hospitals or similar,
where almost no language is required to start with.

I was married with a 23 year younger for 13 years that gave me two sons.
After divorcing, I married a 27 year younger with a single child.
At that time, my boys were living with me.
Being broke with a shitty economy, and boys living with us created a LOT of friction.
But we are still married almost five years later,
and I can’t see any signs of her leaving me in the foreseeable future.

When starting the search for my second FSU wife I signed up and paid for membership on every FSU dating site I could find.
Mailed out more than 3000 formal letters to women approximately 25 year younger.
All of them fulfilling my criteria; Single mother with a child aged 6 - 12, slim 49 - 59 kg, height 160 - 170cm.
Preferably with reasonable english, good job, good economy, higher education.
Got 300+ answers,,, after filtering down, planned to meet with more than 50 of these, during the year I had set aside for searching.
After the reality of logistics had taken its toll, I was able to meet with 30 - 35.
All of these had good or so-so jobs with good economy, were energetic - ambitious and wanted to work from day one, if possible.

Both my first and second wife, wanted to work as quickly as possible.
My first one started within a year,,, with my present wife there was no choice, with me being almost broke.
She set up her own business on the first floor of my office building, and got started almost from day one.
Being a self employed entrepreneur through all of her adult life, it was what she wanted anyway.
She is not comfortable with asking for money, and don’t feel well being dependent on someone other than herself.
What I had to offer,, was free rent, and setting up a nice website for her business, to attract customers immediately.

This year, her 16 year old daughter has started her own business in a corner of my wife's shop.
Working in the evenings after school, doing eyelashes and nails for other teen-age girls at her school.
Not a lot of income, but she loves making her own money,,,,, something like USD 100 a week.

North, thanks a lot for your very well written and informative post.

My surprise though was that you were able to bring the second wife to Norway given your financial situation.

Doesn't Norway have minimum threshold of income and/or assets similar to what USA and UK has?

well, I offered to help you...
but I am way outside your comfort zone
so you declined...

how much time do you have before cold weather moves in to Cat earring berg, maybe 3 months?
and then before you know it, another year has passed by

in three months you could be dating the lonely, wealthy owner of an oil company right here in The Woodlands, Texas
and you'd introduce yourself to him by sitting next to him in Woodlands United Methodist Church on Sunday morning...

there are hundreds of men like him in the area...
if you come here
and HUNT here
you would not leave empty handed, if you have any "talent" that is...
but I don't think you are a brave girl who would try something like this

I came to your country and did this!!!
so why don't you come to my country and do the same????

I'll even help you,
because I'm interested in how it would turn out!!!!

I just don't think you'd have the courage
to try it

krimster2 I havent see you come for somebody, rather for something...
And I have sufficiant courage but would spend it in another way then to go to your country to catch " wealthy owner of an oil company" :popcorn: Its nonsence.
Let "wealthy owner" spend some money and come here to Cat earring berg  :)
as I am totally passive! :-* so for me better to stay home  :)
Even despite krimster2 oppressive mood 
Just want to see the other side :)

NO IT IS NOT!!!!! NO!!!! NO!!!! NO!!!!

let me just give you ONE out of 100 examples in my community
http://www.texasmonthly.com/the-culture/the-ultimate-real-housewife-of-houston/

I know Theresa Roemer and her husband Lamar Roemer, they don’t live too far away from me
we usually run into each other a few times per year, but we’re NOT friends

but I do know that she met him EXACTLY the way I described to you
she just sat down next to him in church, because she knew EXACTLY who he was...
and she just “poached him”
and she was roughly your age

like I said, you’re AFRAID...
for you, it’s better to just WISH for something than it is to take action and go and get it, right?

I’m guessing that if you were hungry
you’d wait for the fruit to fall from the tree
instead of climbing up and gathering some

it’s ok...
it's your choice
but if you listened to me you’d be spending this winter in Texas instead of “cat ice berg”
and by next year, you'd be married and have a closet even bigger than than Teresa's...

man, when my wife saw her closet..... sigh...

bottom line, easier for you to just make a wish, when you shut your eyes and go to sleep at night
than it is to try and get the things you want from life

then you have to make a real effort, instead of the difficult task of "waiting"
and of course you have a chance of failure and disappointment
who would want to have to deal with that?

plus you're Russian so you are predisposed to believe that success is not possible

yeah, I see you
ya vidisch

like I told you, I am outside your comfort zone

All men are diverse as are all women.  Some enjoy raising non biological kids some don't.  It's about finding the right person.  Also why judge a Slavic woman by American or western European rules when the only reason to date fsu  is to avoid the feminazis the western society creates.

North, thanks a lot for your very well written and informative post.

My surprise though was that you were able to bring the second wife to Norway given your financial situation.

Doesn't Norway have minimum threshold of income and/or assets similar to what USA and UK has?

Yes ML,,,
Norway have minimum threshold of income and/or assets similar to what USA and UK has.

For the three preceding years, you need to have a tax registered income above approximately USD 30K.
Only two years needed, if you have tax declared assets above 300K, if I remember it correctly.

I fulfilled these requirements in 2014, when I applied for a visa late that year, for Tanya and her daughter.
Then for the upcoming year I couldn't fulfil it, as there is no way to add income after the fact.
Assets were not a problem, but I hadn't declared enough income for the last year.
 
That's why I moved to Sweden one of the first days of 2015, after marrying with Tanya on the 2nd of January.
When a native citizen is moving to another Scandinavian country, he is entitled to take his family along, whatever country they are from.
It took me a lot of research, to find the correct loopholes, and how to pass through them.

We are living close to border on each side,,,,
Early next year, after 5 years of living in Sweden, Tanya and her daughter will have their Swedish passports.
Then they are entitled to move and live, wherever they want within the European Union.
She can in principle, do so today also, as she has a permanent residence permit in Sweden.
But it is still a lot of trouble with a Ukraine passport.

It's based on the EU Directive 2004/38/EC

http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A32004L0038

ANY EU citizen can exercise his / her treaty rights to move  to a third nation with his non EU dependents ro any EU/EEA nation

But it is still a lot of trouble with a Ukraine passport.

It REALLY shouldn't be ... it is a problem for any nation / employer / school, etc., making problems for her - as they all must be treated as EU / EEA citizens

If she or the kids suffer such issues and you believe an instituation / country are not in compliance - check out your local SolVIT - designed to help in such difficulties

ML, you should read the link ;)

The EU Directive ( must do  - even if in conflict with national law) makes it abundantly clear that NON- EU / EEA family members of an EU/ EEA citizen exercising their treaty right - freedom of movement - must be treated as if EU / EEA citzens ..

OK thanks.

But myself and most of us are never going to take the time to go read links.

So for me, best to just post the essence (as you have above) of whatever point is needed to be made.
And maybe such a post needs to be repeated when someone like me misses the point the first time around.

Nano,

There is a bunch of information and advice at this forum. Some of it
is very good and some of it has zero value. If you spend a little more
time here, you will learn which members post the most worthless things
and which members post the best.

Eventually you will see a post from a zero value member and you will
skip over it since there is no reason to waste your time with stupid things. 

Don't let a few idiots discourage your participation here.

I wish you good luck and success!
