So says the director of a Kazakhstan marriage agency, commenting on demographics in the capital city Astana.
Tatiana Logvinenko: “If among the men you take out those who are married, alcoholics, drug addicts, gay or in prison, well, in Astana for example, for each free man you will find eight women. And the figures are the same for the whole country.”
Logvinenko’s customers “come mainly from women aged 32 and over. Single women seeking husbands are typically highly educated, self-reliant and employed in good positions, but fated by their lifestyles to being without a family.”
