Chairwoman of State Duma’s Family, Women, and Children Affairs Committee faults Russian for they get married for feast
Tamara Pletnyova believes young people do not take credit for married life.
Chairwoman of State Duma’s Family, Women, and Children Affairs Committee Tamara Pletnyova stated that young Russians get married for wedding ceremony and do not take credit for fast divorce, reports Moskva agency.
“There’s no responsibility, at all! They only want to have fun during the wedding ceremony. Here’s the wedding: all right, parents, come down with your money. Soon after, there’s the “unsuited to each other” thing! This is due to lack of education. No responsibility, at all! And this kind of open marriage - as they call it - it’s not the marriage, at all, but just cohabitation; and temporary one, most often,” the Duma member said, having noted it’s good if cohabitation ends in marriage registration: in this case, at least children are secured.
Besides that, Pletnyova reported her Committee often receives complaints related to alimony payment. “That’s just crazy!” The deputy stated.
Pletnyova notes the Committee does not back the initiative to legally equal open marriage to an official one after 5 years of cohabitation. “We will never say yes to this, as this is going to be something!”
Pletnyova made headlines for advising Russian women not to have sex with foreign men during the 2018 FIFA World Cup. In her words, tourists might deceive women, and then the latter will have to bring up the children of “a different ethnicity” on their own.
“These children are going to suffer, as they suffered in days of the Soviet authority. It’s good if there’s one race. But what if there’s another race? We must give birth to our own children,” Pletnyova stated. Her words caused a high-profile discussion representatives of Kremlin and well-known reporters, among others, took part it.
