By marrying an American you have a greater 250% of getting divorced.
I'm no math whiz by any means, but how can one have a more than 100% chance of getting divorced?
Do you mean you are 250 times more likely to get divorced if you marry an American that a foreign woman? And what does one mean by a "foreign woman" - someone from another country in general? From a developping country? From Canada?
I think when people from different countries marry each other, there is more chemistry, between them. More of the opposites attract thing. I suppose, this makes these marriages more likely to last.

that could be a factor that oppostie attract but if it is in the case of former soviet unon.. maybe it is also because the they look for a higher standard of living (No offence).
but yeah oppostie do attract, and it is just the wanting of learnign about another culture, just have to figure out who moves to were... but in the end it always seams like the woman move and never the men....
If it's of any help, I am a Russian woman and I have been married to an American for more than 8 years. Also, I associate with a group of about 100 Russian women that have married American men. So far, I have only known of three divorces out of almost 100 couples. That is a far cry from my husband’s friends who are almost all divorced from American women.
Just take your time, no need to propose right away. Looks like you have the right things going for ya! I know I'm really young and all but I've been lacking in that department for the past couple of years
If I was going to get married and divorced again, at least this time I would prefer it to be with a hot Russian or Latin girl rather than a fat old nagging American woman. AKA X-wife.
