Will you marry me? in Russian: How to say?

Feb 08, 2021 | How to say it in Russian?

There are a few ways to say Will you marry me? in Russian. Here, we will try to cover all of them.

In Russian, to say to get married, we use the word же́ниться for men and вы́йти за́муж for women:

to get married (for women)

вы́йти за́муж
to get married (for a woman)

So if you are a guy and you want to propose to a woman, you can say:

Выходи́ за меня́ за́муж!
Marry me!


Ты вы́йдешь за меня́ за́муж?
Will you marry me?

If you are a girl and you want to propose to a guy (things happen these days), you can say:

Жени́сь на мне!
Marry me! (sounds a bit aggressive, but it all depends on your relationships)

Ты на мне же́нишься?
Will you marry me?

Ты возьмёшь меня́ за́муж?
Will you marry me?

When talking about both sexes at the same time, you should use the verb жени́ться (imperfective) / пожени́ться (perfective):

Дава́й поже́нимся!
Let’s get married!

If you don’t know the difference between imperfective and perfective verbs, we recommend you to study this lesson: Russian verb aspects.

You can also use other constructions to ask your beloved one to marry you. For example:

Бу́дешь мое́й жено́й?
Will you be my wife?

Будь мое́й жено́й!
Be my wife!

Бу́дешь мои́м му́жем?
Will you be my husband?

Будь мои́м му́жем!
Be my husband!
