So I married a Mongolian...

But back to that phrase—manly men. This has only puzzled me more. Certainly from living in the U. I grew up in the woods where my father taught us to hunt and fish. I joined the Army National Guard when I was 17 and pride myself on being both self confident and independent. I was not looking for a manly man. But I am living in what one has coined as Mangolia , and I am married to a Mongolian man. The phrase may originate from the National Festival of Naadam , celebrated every year July in Ulaanbaatar, and throughout summer across the provinces of Mongolia.

First and foremost, men here do have a basic understanding of how things work mechanically, and with incredible resourcefulness will attempt to fix or repair or make almost anything! Perhaps this comes from their nomadic history—when something breaks in the middle of nowhere, you must fix it with what you have on hand. There is no Walmart to run to! They may not know what to do, but they will not hesitate to try and repair it. I appreciate and admire their willingness to get dirty, and figure things out.

And they will ask repeatedly until they arrive to their destination. This is different than an American male driving around looking for a place and refusing to stop and ask for help. Course some of this probably has to do with Mongolians not being taught map skills. Their knowledge of directions and navigation are based on interpreting the landscape and maneuvering around landmarks. They do not hesitate to throw a punch or initiate a scuffle. Domestic violence is an issue that has drawn attention in recent years.

It is now being addressed through new governmental laws that recognize domestic violence as a criminal offense. All that said, I chuckle when I hear a new acquaintance comment that I must like a manly man. I love my husband for all his gifts, for how he loves and cares for me. People fit together like puzzle pieces and I could no sooner put him in a single category or box, than he could me.

We are man and woman, Asian and Western, Buddhist and Christian in our up-bringings , multi-lingual and monolingual, and any number of other classifications. As human beings, we are each of us individuals that hold both masculine and feminine qualities, and our failure to remember or honor this may be what leads to our discontent. I work to see the multitude in me, in him, in each of us. What about you? Your email address will not be published.

Our first date was a few weeks later at what was then Mongolia's only Men and women are very equal in Mongolian society, though they have. I am a white American woman who has been dating a Mongolian man (from Outer Mongolia) for almost 1 year. I haven't found much.

I suppose this is an entry that is long overdo. Despite the fact that I am now on the beach in Vietnam, have traversed several countries by train in the last few weeks, and am geographically veryveryvery far away from the windswept, bone-chilling sandstorms of the Mongolian spring, I am still writing about this country. Before I get started, I wanted to explicitely state my intentions in writing this article: I by no means want to say that all Mongolians think this way; I am simply saying that these tendencies exist in contemporary Mongolian culture and why I perceive them to be limiting and dangerous.

And, well, the hate spewed in to the comment section on some of our Mongolia posts. Mongolian men are clearly retarded. If you visit again in mongolia.

Dating in Mongolia

My last day in Mongolia was quiet. Most of my clothing was being laundered, so I sat around in my pajamas until almost 3 in the afternoon and tried to catch up on some writing, emails etc. As it was my last night in Ulaanbaatar and Mongolia, it was also party night. Which meant everyone in the hostel would be buying beers or vodka and we would be hanging out until the wee hours of the morning. The festivities had barely begun when the doorbell to the hostel rang. As I walked up from the basement I saw a Mongolian man clutching his face and bleeding. The girls led him into the staff bathroom and I followed to see if they needed some help. When I saw the porcelain sink splattered by red blood, I knew the gash was a little more serious than a minor cut. I went looking for a first aid kit. The girls at the hostel told me that some pickpockets had jumped the man -one of their tour drivers- outside and attacked him.

Mongolian Men Are Losers, Proof Inside

After a trend involving the daughters of Mongolian families being chosen to receive an education over sons, professional women are beginning to find that their prospects of finding a suitable marital match are difficult. In a twist from many other countries, Mongolian girls often receive priority for college because men are seen as better equipped for labor such as herding livestock. Women are seen as more likely to be better caretakers and financial providers for their parents in old age. Today, Mongolian women are more likely to receive college education, make more money, and even live an average of 10 years longer than their male counterparts. The education gap in the genders only exacerbates the problem even more. Mongolian culture teaches girls and women to strive for success, independence, and strength, but also dictates that the man they marry must be their equal.

Rosamund Ebdon, 45, a civil servant, and Bataa Tserenbat, 43, a financial controller from Mongolia, live in Surrey, with their children, Byaraa, 11, and Zaya, eight above. Bataa and I met in in the Mongolian capital, Ulan Bator. I was working for Save the Children, and we shared our offices with a Mongolian government institute, where Bataa was a lecturer in mathematics. When we did get to know each other, it was in unusual circumstances. A friend and I were keen to get some horse-riding practice and a colleague suggested that Bataa take us to stay with his family.

Educated Mongolian Women Finding A Drought Of Eligible Men To Marry

Hi everyone, As a spin-off on the marriage thread, I was wondering if any of you kind people could give a glance into your dating experiences as foreigners in Mongolia, with Mongolian men and women. Are there any things that would be useful to know? I am a white American woman who has been dating a Mongolian man from Outer Mongolia for almost 1 year. I haven't found much information on dating customs online, although I did read that introducing a girl to your family means you are getting married. My boyfriend has not told his parents we are dating, and I still have not met any of his friends. Would that be the reason or? Please share any information you have on dating in Mongolia ie. Thank you so much to everyone who contributes to this thread!

A t the UB comedy club at the back of a bar in central Ulaanbaatar, the audience is overwhelmingly female. Groups of smartly dressed women, just out of the office, sip from bottles of beer while watching a young Mongolian man on stage. Over the past few decades, Mongolian families have been investing in their daughters by sending them to school and university in the capital. Some parents believe daughters will take better care of them in their old age. Others think women need to learn other skills as herding livestock is work reserved for men — the boys are kept at home to tend the animals. Now women are more educated than men. They are less likely to be unemployed.

Men and women are very equal in Mongolian society, though they have different, well-defined traditional roles. Men from this country are known for their manliness, but all together they are family oriented, tolerant, and more serious about dating than most Westerners. Mongolia is a landlocked country in east-central Asia and is the most sparsely populated independent country in the world. The official language is Mongolian and the predominant religion is Tibetan Buddhism. The Culture of Mongolia has been heavily influenced by a long-practiced, nomadic way of life and by ancient religious beliefs. The climate is hot in the summer and extremely cold in the winter.
