Eternal Marriage ... And Spam!


Recommended Posts

I opened one of my e-mail accounts this morning to find the following message (only very slightly embellished by Yours Truly ;) ... Honest!) in my in-box from RussianMailOrderBrides.com.

"My name is Natasha. I am hot Russian voman. I know how to shoot AK-47. You like hot Russian voman who know how to shoot AK-47, yes? You come to Russia, ve go visit my Uncle Vladimir, OK?"

What do you guys think of the eternal marriage possibilities? Are we talking "True, Eternal Love," here? What's my next step? Do I ask her to send a photo (of the AK-47)? :D Should I just bag it, and reply, "Honey, I'll settle for an average-looking American 'voman' who doesn't even know what an AK-47 is"? :D:rofl:

Please help! I'm set so all aquiver by the Eternal Marriage possibilities on this one that my fingers are positively trembling as I type, and I don't even trust myself enough to be able to think straight.

Thanks in advance!

Drinking too much caffeine will do that to you. Lay off of it for a few days and the trembling hands, and the hot Russian with an AK will go away. :)

Dang! :sad: I was hoping I'd at least get to see a photo of the AK-47! Can I at least tell her to send my regards to her Uncle Vladimir beofre I break it off?

I think you are on the right track. I would definitely want a couple of pictures of the AK-47. On a closeup and one with her holding it. Would also ask about ammo supply and spare parts.

Would also ask if she could cook and clean. If affirmative to all of the above it would definitely have serious possibilities.

Better a hot Russian than a hot AK-47.

My husband, on one of his trips to Russia, answered the knock on his hotel door shortly after checking in and found there a tall, hot Russian woman who said "I am Olga. I give good massage. You like massage?" (without an AK-47...thank goodness as I think he would have passed out otherwise, the whole thing was stressful enough for him as it was, poor fellow).

Apparently this was after the Moscow Radisson became hooked up with the mob and such offers--straight from the front desk---became standard for the businessmen that came there along with the business centre that offered the latest in internet and other services. Eventually the American business partner, who was attempting to run it on respectable lines and who challenged the mob's involvement (which included the mayor of Moscow IIRC), protested once too often and he ended up spattered at the Metro closest to the hotel. He had been a friend to my husband. At that point I put a hold on my husband's trips to Russia. Too many of his friends and family members had run ins with the mob there (his BIL had been told by the US State Dept. that they could not guarantee his safety if he continued to travel there after he attempted to kick the mob out of his travel company after they had been 'let in' by a Russian associate).

OTOH, one of the wealthy men we got to know on one of our trips over married one of the Russian tour guides--and she was one hot Russian babe, very nice woman too. Their relationship has been rocky at times, but last we heard they were still together (lasted 17 years so far if still together). There was a real deep strength in the Russian women I knew, but they did tend to be conservative in their views of what role a woman should have in a marriage even among the professionals (and I don't mean the oldest profession). It was not uncommon to hear of their husbands spending most of their free time out drinking with the guys while they struggled to keep home and family together even if their jobs were more prestigious and paid better than their husbands. Their complaints were extremely mild in comparison to what I would have expected to hear from an American woman in the same situation. Women were definitely not given the respect that men were, it was at times very uncomfortable to watch how they were treated at some faculty get togethers as some of the bosses got tipsy.

Except for one woman who was a firebrand and took no guff from anyone. She had sat on Stalin's lap as a child, had a father high up in the Party and one could look out of her apartment on to the spot where the barricades were that helped bring down the Communist government.

I wonder if she means her uncle Vladimir Vladimirovich. If so, you had better have her back by curfew time.

I think she said his last name is Putin ... Should I be worried? ;)

In one of the cities in my mission, an investigator was baptised during the winter. About the only places where you won't run the risk of hypothermia are saunas. Just after the baptism, the recptionist asked the missionaries if they wanted the girls sent in now or later.

Respond with a concubinage counteroffer.

I'm guessing, say ... later? Say, after you'd vacated the premises? :huh:

You tell me.

Whatever you do though, don't mention maritime archaeology.

She didn't mention the whole "ex-KGB" thing! :angry:

This answers my earlier question about this thread becoming more awkward. Thanks, Volgadon.

      I really don't have any doubt that in the future the LDS church will change its policy regarding same sex marriage. I am sure that will be disputed by many, and thats fine, just start a new thread on it. If I, and others, are right about this,I think allowing Gay couples to fully participate in the Sunday experience will be relatively easy to do. The real question becomes, is there ANY WAY to fit homosexual marriage into a traditional(ish) Mormon exaltation theology, or will it have to be discarded to accommodate, should this prediction come true?  I am a strong believer in exaltation, but I also am fairly convinced that for many individuals, there is no way they will be happy or whole with a spouse of the opposite gender. Your serious thoughts on this are appreciated...

      I was recently talking to a friend about the church and the promise of being sealed to one's spouse for time and eternity. My friend looked at me puzzled and asked, "Are you trying to talk in or OUT of the church?" Having met his wife on several occasions, I could immediately see his point and we both laughed.
      He then seriously asked me, "Have you Mormons really thought out this eternal marriage thing? Are you that deliriously happy in your earthly marriage that you want to re-up for an ETERNITY? And even if so, how do you know that you wouldn't be even happier with one of the 100 BILLION people who have lived on this earth before, not mention the billions who might come after?"
      As a recent convert, I didn't have good answers to any of these questions. I had never even thought of them before. Why would I? I happen to be married to a woman who possesses incomparable beauty, infinite understanding and most importantly, access to this board ("Hey, Baby!").
      And while you might be able to say the same about your spouse, that isn't the case for most people. In many societies, half of all marriages in end failure; and the other half in end divorce. And while we can quibble about percentages, a substantial number of prospective members will be in less than ideal marriages. From their standpoint, eternal marriage will sound much more like a threat than a curse.
      What is it that they need to know to be able to understand what a blessing this can be?
