семья : Family

Who are you?

This chart answers it for a Russian lady or man. They are their father’s son daughter and follows the lineage of their family which is descriptive of their family names. That’s why every Russian name ends with either ович евич овна евна, following their father’s name. Russian names does not have much variety because they are not allowed to use many foreign names.

Needless to say, they are also very family-oriented. In this modern times, a lot of Russian men still demands that their wives stays at home and take care of the family while they work and provide for them. Many Russians start to built a family at their 20’s unlike in West where marriage is unthinkable in this age (except of course for the strict religious). I am finding this strong family values very similar to the Philippines. Maybe that’s why I feel at home here.
