And, from a recent Gallup poll, 64 percent of 18-29 year olds are not living with or married to a partner.

This is an incredibly comprehensive guide about Ukrainian women, taken from an incredible amount of experience from several people who have spent considerable time in the country.If you’ve got any questions or comments, certainly leave them below!
