Religion
« on: August 22, 2019, 11:11:35 PM »
Good morning everyone.  It has been stated that Russia has four historic religions.  I was wondering if anyone here has dated a Jewish or Buddhist woman from Russia?  If so, what are the main differences in the courting process, family, lifestyle, etc.  I once dated a nice Belarusian woman whose grandmother was Jewish, so she wasn't 100%.  Here in the forum we focus mainly on the Russian Slavs but rarely on the minorities.  However the minorities have a pretty large population.

There are no differences.  The majority of their experiences and traditions have been formed by the USSR, not their religions, which were, for all intents and purposes, banned for seven and a half decades.  That is why the biggest celebration in Russia is not Easter (for the majority of the population), but New Year.

I dated a Jewish FSU women in the states.  She enjoyed the French kisses but she didn't want to move past that so I didn't learn much about her family values and lifestyle.
