Usually depends on the person to get over culture shocks. Also how well you and his family accepts one another. Could be hell or heaven...so I hope it will be heaven for you where ever you two decide to love one another.
You have to try it for a while and then finally decide. You did not say which part of the Philippines. Philippines is a beautiful country, which offers a lot of adventures. People are very friendly and hospitable. But, as a Russian, you will have to find it yourself first. Before deciding to finally settle down, try it first, and decide for yourself. Don't commit yourself yet - without trying first.
Yes it is hard for a Russian to live in the Philippines. The Borscht is crap, and there is no Baltika. Plus it smells, and everyone will ask you for money. Oh and you'll probably stand out quiet a bit.
I think you should try it for a while and see what you think. As long as you have a way to leave if you want later no harm no foul. Broaden your horizons. If you have some kind of monthly income then Living in the Philippines can be very inexpensive compared to living in any western country.
i believe the first thing to consider is the climate as what my non Filipino friends most complain about. The Philippines has a tropical maritime climate and is usually hot and humid. There are three seasons: tag-init or tag-araw, the hot dry season or summer from March to May; tag-ulan, the rainy season from June to November; and tag-lamig, the cool dry season from December to February. Temperatures usually range from 21Â°C (70Â°F) to 32Â°C (90Â°F) although it can get cooler or hotter depending on the season. The coolest month is January; the warmest is May. The average yearly temperature is around 26.6Â°C (79.88Â°F).
It will be easier for you to go to the Philippines than for him to come to the US (looking at at least 1 year time) but he does not earn as much as he would in the US.
You're correct to be apprehensive about the culture and way of life. Plus it's located on another part of the planet, where the sun really has dominance over the skies. It's an archipelago surrounded by bodies of water, so it's humid. Gets a little cool during winter. Rains a lot, too, from June onwards. Summer is like being inside an oven, especially in the cities. And since it's in the tropics, there are many living things. The USA and Russia are both on the northern hemisphere so they should be parallel. The Philippines would be very different. You won't be wearing jackets. Economically, the Philippines is a financially-challenged country. Your future husband may find work, but his compensation may not be enough. Cost of living is a little bit high and the average wages are considerably low. You'll need to wait a couple of years if you wish to buy something expensive. Depends upon you, you might like it, you might not. Have a vacation for a considerable period and see for yourself.
You'll feel right at home. You can't get anything done in either country without paying a bribe to a civil servant.

I would imagine there would be a huge cultural gap. People might be too shy to really approach you. I think the US is a better place for you both. The US is more multi-cultural. I've never met a single Russian here so far.
I recommend visiting the country and spending a few months or so there to get a taste of everyday life. I've never met a Russian in the Philippines, nor have I ever been to Russia, so I can't say how different both places and cultures are. Besides, nothing prepares you better than experience.
If you're not used to the extreme heat and if you're being rude, then yes it is going to be hard.
If you love him so much, what's the reason for worrying a lot, besides culture is a part of their life, living in USA is more difficult than in Philippines. In Philippines you will know lots of lovely neighbor, a humble and hospitable people, culture is not that's hard to adopt, besides Filipinos are a well supportive and responsible people if we speak about the way they care their family, for sure you will feel comfortable the way they care you. Be with it and don't keep on thinking negative things. Good luck ..............
