The Russian bride was holding a poster, “Wannaaa marry” (“I want to get married”).

The incident occurred at 3 pm on a central street of Yekaterinburg on 21 April, Vedomosti Ural reported. The jewellery shop on Malysheva street started to attract attention.

The young woman in a white floor-length wedding dress had a leather jacket thrown on top of it, in order to protect her from the elements. The temperature in April is only 5-12˚C (41-53˚F). The Russian bride insisted she wouldn’t leave until she got her boyfriend’s confirmation they are getting married soon.

She explained to onlookers that her boyfriend and she had been dating for 2 years, which is a long time by the Russian standards. The girl said she expected her partner to propose during Christmas holidays, on St. Valentine’s Day, or on the Women’s Day 8 March but he didn’t make the move, and she really wanted to get married.

The happening was noticed by a local blogger who reported about it promptly. News outlets posted their stories about the incident.

Obruchalka’s store VK page with the post about a happy ending: “The wedding is on!” The groom showed up and proposed, the post affirmed.

The woman was later identified as an actress of a local theatre and the whole thing was a PR setup by the jeweller, trying to attract attention. The name of the store “Obruchalka” means “wedding ring” in Russian. On its page in the Russian social network VKontakte, the store posted a message that after a few hours Mikhail showed up, proposed and freed his beloved, and told her “the sacred words”.

The funny thing is that locals totally believed this could be a real deal. Many Russian women are rather desperate to make their boyfriends commit to a registered union. Being officially married is a status thing for Russian girls, which is why the episode seemed quite plausible.

It’s really a funny story. Fortunately, it isn’t real. Otherwise I would feel sorry for this girl. I think to chain yourself in order to be proposed isn’t a way out. If a man doesn’t want to be with you he won’t. No chain helps. Maybe just love isn’t real. Only if a boyfriend is yours you will be together anyway.

I’m happy that it’s only an advertising company. Anyway I think it could happen in real life. Russian women are ready for any humiliation to get married to their beloved.

And their girlfriends spend a long time on cooking, doing a flat, etc. For men such girlfriends are just a simple gratuitous housemaid. When women start to insist on marriage, men decide to break up. And then they find another gratuitous housemaid. It is… Read more »
