...cannot understand why someone would choose any other lifestyle...

Bingo. Each of us is an individual, with unique priorities, and most of us tend to congregate with birds of like feathers to the extent that we not only don't understand others, we're downright flummoxed by their choices.

I've met a few people like OP IRL. They have Russian brides. Very pretty ladies, always well-dressed and well-groomed. Minimal English, but husbands didn't marry them for conversation anyway, just wanted arm candy. Husbands seem happy. Wives, I dunno, but I hope they're happy, too. They're adults and weren't brought here on false pretences. I presume they made the best decisions they could given their circumstances.

Takes all kinds.
