Why Bulgarian women leave Bulgaria for West?
You don’t have to make some captious research to understand that Bulgarian girls and young women eagerly leave their home country in search of better life. First of all they go abroad to work, as difference in salaries in Bulgaria and in the United Kingdom, for example, are 5 times or more; Bulgarian girls go to find work overseas. Plan number one and the aim number one is to get a job and accumulate sums of money over there, because after coming back home they can spend this money to buy a house, to buy a car, settle up some own business or leave relaxed for a year, not working until the money ends and there is another trip abroad as the result. Such women are the main contingent that is going abroad from Bulgaria. But it often happens that the way to the aim becomes more important than the aim itself and in case of Bulgarian girls in the UK it often happens the find life there much better than at hope and having no willing to come back are looking for different ways to legalize themselves and to get residence permit. Dreams often come true when Bulgarian girls starts dating with local guy in the UK; then she tries not to give up till the end and someday they become happy married couple; after some years of marriage Bulgarian woman becomes the citizen of The United Kingdom and then she decides whether to stay with her husband (most likely; that is how decent women do) or to leave the husband and take some of his money and property (rarely; that is hove bad Bulgarian girls do). Bulgarian women like to live in Great Britain and at the same time British men are happy that so many pretty girls comes from Bulgaria and all those girls would like to prefer life in the UK. Is it so bad in Bulgaria they want to leave the country so eagerly?
As the country, Bulgaria is not that bad’ it is European country, member of EU; Bulgaria has very beautiful nature with sea and mountains and hospitable people; but average salary is pretty low in Bulgaria according to other EU countries and since you are Bulgarian, you are free to choose work placement everywhere in European Union. People use their chance to earn more than they get at home and sometimes even much more. It does not mean there is no job in Bulgaria, but this job offers pretty low income. Many Bulgarians also dream about life in foreign country; they go to primitive physical work in hope to get citizenship some day, but Bulgarian women get it much quicker those Bulgarian men abroad, because they simply are getting married abroad more often than their man compatriots. Bulgarian women choose to rise up kids abroad, because there they are protected financially, they can get better education abroad and it would be easier for them to find good pay job in the future; instinct brings mother to create family with stronger male (materially rich British, in this case).
Bulgarian women visited the United Kingdom, The Netherlands or Norway for seasonal works at least; some of them were in Western Europe for the travel tours. All those people who were visiting West for some reasons have already seen it is good to earn there; they still do not think it is better to live there, because maybe you earn more, but you have to pay more taxes, to pay very big insurance rate and in addition to all, to live in different cultural society, to which you might never get used; one more minus of living in foreign country might be weather as if you were born in sunny hot Bulgaria, you might suffer from cold, rainy and foggy Britain. Despite of all the facts above, many Bulgarian girls choose West instead of their home country; very often these young generation, the hope and the future of Bulgaria, buy one way ticket to The U.K. and will try to unsuccessfully assimilate there; you will always be foreigner in the foreign country, no matter how good is your English and how good you share traditions of foreign country. I understand the key of such migration, as many Bulgarian women sacrifice themselves and say “If I was living in poverty, at least my kids will live in abundance and will have plenty of things I haven’t seen in my childhood”.
Not all Bulgarian girls would like to move to The United Kingdom or some other western country for permanent living. Many Bulgarian girls are happily married in Bulgaria, they have good jobs and beloved husband; it is not going only about marriage; Bulgarian girls dating Bulgarian local guys and plan the future in Bulgaria. There are happy families in Bulgaria, but very often the groundwork of these relationships hides in financial stability of the head of the family; even when there is real movie-sentimental love, you always want to eat or you have to feed the family and this is impossible when you have low income. But the tendency that so many Bulgarian girls didn’t find them as future wives of Bulgarian men is warning.
In short, financial situation and open borders force Bulgarian women to choose abroad for their motherland; among other factors are stories of friend who went abroad how much they earn over there and how freely they feel when they come back home, because of having great sum of money on the debit cards. Stories when compatriots have great life abroad, come home buying expensive villas for their parents, drive expensive cars encourage Bulgarian youth to go West as a labor migrants and nothing can stop them; as one Bulgarian old man said, only lazy or sick didn’t leave Bulgaria for work abroad. In terms of whole country such situation has very bad influence, because the population will reduce every year and the best specialists become professionals abroad and bring profit to foreign country; also it is said when good Bulgarian specialist with University diploma works as physical worker abroad; no youth means no future for the country and that is not only said, but even dangerous. But as the proverb says, misfortune for one brings some profits for another one. In case with Bulgarian women it means Bulgaria as the country will suffer from such big migration of people and men in the UK would be happy, as they will have many international girls to pick future wife from that cattle would not be a problem at all. British men already have had to make their choice between Polish girls, now they are desperate about Romanian and Bulgarian girls.
