Interview with Australian men who are married to Russian women

Russian women

We all know that Russian women are very attractive and elegant. After interviewing two Australian men who are married to elegant Russian ladies, we have something interesting to share with you.

Australia is a country built by immigrants and for immigrants, so it’s easy for Russian women to get used to this environment.

As long as a Russian lady’s English is good, she is able to find a decent job in Australia because this country likes immigrants – a lot of Australian residents were born overseas and speak two languages.

According to these two gentlemen, it only took their wives 3-5 months to find good jobs in Australia. Clearly, it is true that employment is not a problem for immigrants in Australia.

Today Australia is a multicultural nation; however, in the late 19th century many people wanted to maintain the British heritage of the colonies. To some extent, this desire was prompted by concerns ‘cheap’ non-white labor would compete with colonists for jobs, leading to lower wages and a reduced standard of living. These anxieties stemmed partly from anti-Chinese sentiment dating back to the gold-fields of the 1850s. They also reflected resentment towards Pacific Islanders who worked for low pay in Queensland’s sugar industry.

Racial conflict was seen as an inevitable consequence of a multicultural society. It was felt a national government would be in a better position than the colonies to restrict

and control immigration.

The Australian history determines the national character which is good for international relationships.

If we look at the history of Australia, we can see that the national pride is solid. Also, Australians treat immigrants very well nowadays because it’s a multi-cultural society. No wonder Russian women in Australia stay happily married and thrive.

Colonists mostly shared a common language, culture and heritage, and increasingly began to identify as Australian rather than British. New South Wales Premier, Sir Henry

Parkes, referred to this as ‘the crimson thread of kinship that runs through us all’. In fact, by the time of federation over three-quarters of the population were Australian-born. Many people moved between the colonies to find work and sporting teams had begun to represent Australia. In 1899 soldiers from the colonies who went to the Boer War in South Africa served together as Australians. The shift was apparent in contemporary songs and poems which celebrated Australia and Australians.

Convinced the colonies would be stronger if they united, Parkes gave a rousing address in 1889 calling for ‘a great national government for all Australians’. Parkes’ call provided the momentum that led to Australia becoming a nation. Aware popular support was not enough, Parkes lobbied his fellow premiers to back federation. On 6 February 1890 delegates from each of the colonial parliaments and the New Zealand Parliament met at the Australasian Federation Conference in Melbourne. The conference agreed ‘the interests and prosperity of the Australian colonies would be served by an early union under the crown’. It called for a national convention (formal meeting) to draft a constitution for the Commonwealth of Australia.

The first National Australasian Convention was held in Sydney in March and April

1891, and was attended by delegates from each of the colonies and the New Zealand Parliament. During the convention, Edmund Barton, who was to become Australia’s first Prime Minister, made famous the catch cry ‘a nation for a continent and a continent for a nation’. The convention spent five weeks discussing and then composing a draft

constitution, which became the basis for the constitution we have today. While Queensland Premier, Sir Samuel Griffith, is largely credited with drafting the constitution approved by the convention, it was based on a version circulated by Tasmanian delegate Andrew Inglis Clark. Clark was inspired by the federal model adopted by the United States (US), which, like Australia, faced the challenge of bringing together self-governing colonies as a nation, according to the Parliament Education Office.

Under the draft constitution the colonies would unite as separate states within the Commonwealth, with power shared between a federal Parliament and state parliaments. This would give Australia a federal system of government. The federal Parliament would have responsibility for areas which affected the whole nation, such as trade, defense, immigration, postal and telegraphic services, marriage and divorce. A High Court would interpret the constitution and resolve disputes between the federal and state governments. Federal Parliament would comprise the Queen (represented by the Governor-General), the Senate and the House of Representatives. The two houses would have similar law-making powers – laws could only be passed or changed with the approval of both houses. The power to make and manage federal law was to be divided between the Parliament (who would make the law), the Executive (who would implement the law) and the Judiciary (who would interpret the law).

“Many women from Russia prefer Australian men because the Australian culture is to be admired.”
