Uzbekistan: Interesting Facts to Know


You might want to be more specific about dating culture in Uzbekistan. The dating “culture” here, varies by age and location. Mostly, men and women marry at a very young age. And people often involve their companion in school. They can also fit in university, work, or family members. There are still “arranged marriages” in small villages. There, marrying straight from high school is not uncommon. We don’t mean that a woman arranges them presents with resumes. But, instead, friends’ of the family or distant relatives set up their children together. Or they encourage them to set-up. Primarily, there isn’t a bar/club/lounge scene in even the largest city. So many pupils meet their significant other at a young age. And they stay intending to marry that person. They think of not “date” until graduation and then figuring out where it goes from there.

 Intimacy Before Marriage In Uzbekistan

Intimation before marriage is still not common. And no one even thinks of discussing it.  Dating periods, particularly with a Muslim Uzbek (which most are, and take their religion very seriously), are short. You meet a girl or boy, you “date” for a few months, and then you decide you’d like to get married. The boy requests his future wife’s hand in marriage from the father of the bride-to-be. Only the commitment period takes time. But it’s a commitment from start to finish, and dating is never a “let’s see what happens” thing. Uzbek men and women don’t spend years, “wasting time” with someone.

Can Westerners Date With Uzbekistan’s Men Or Women?

Suppose you are a Westerner. And you happen to meet a single Uzbek man or woman at your job. They might be more Western in dating practices since they most likely decided not to get married at a “later” age. I mean, after the age of 24). But, still, you won’t find many after 30 who are single. It’s frowned upon in Uzbek society. No matter what some progressive Uzbeks might tell you.

Let’s assume that you are in places like New York or Brooklyn. There you face a  man or woman from Uzbekistan. Dating might not be so rigid. But be aware that cultural norms are still very much inside an Uzbek person. And they will not have a flippant Western attitude towards dating. They may have intimacy before marriage. But they usually have a deeply embedded idea that sex is serious, and marriage is real. Few Uzbek men are who will casually date and sleep around. However, pass the time until they find a nice Uzbek woman for marriage.

Overall, if you’re not Uzbek, I would tread here. Successful marriages involving Uzbek women to American men are rare. However, the men must convert to Islam before the wedding – it’s that serious.

And the dating cycle is concise, compared to the engagement period. In other words, the American men give in to the Uzbek approach — the only reason they loved the women and wanted to. Any non-Uzbek dating an Uzbek should be willing and prepared to do the same.
