The Romanian noble families used to have this tradition till the XXth century but it is not a general tradition.
Grand Duchess Maria is second cousin to King Mihai I of Romania (Elisabeth Karina of Romania's grandfather).

Are there not any Russians there who would make nice brides? Why a foreign bride?

No Russian (even noble) is eligible because there will be no equal marriage.

Why can't they change the laws?After all,even the most powerful modern monarchies such as Britain,Spain ,Norway and other ones accepted commoner brides

The Head of The Imperial Family can change the Law but it wouldn't be very wise.

Elizabeth Karina is not a 21st century pick. I am sure she is nice, but, not.....of I do not want to offend. On the Other hand he is no bargain, either.

Why not then someone of the Russian nobility? Make that a requirement instead. At the moment, there are very few enthroned royalties and there are few Russian royal brides. A foreign bride would alienate Russians and there is little to no chance of a Russian wife unless he marries a commoner or Maria stops alienating the rest of the Romnovs and nobility.

The choice must belong to Grand Duke George.He is still a young man and he has plenty of time to decide.

I'm sure the Grand Duchess would want someone emotionally and psychologically stable for her son.

I think that the interview with GDss Maria is rather clear: if her son wants to marry a commoner she will try to change the house laws (with the blessing of the church). If there was/is a royal bride in the pipeline for Georgi, I am sure she never would have said such a thing in public.

If GDss Maria Vladimirovna change law, will it be pro futuro? I suppose that GDss Maria will change law GD/GDss to marry with commoners (or not equally spouse) and their children will be dynast with right to throne (not like nowadays). Why did not do the same his father before his marriage? Nowadays would be no questions about his marriage and maybe Head of Family would be someone else not GDss Maria

I think if Maria changes the law to allow her son to marry anyone, then we should evaluate the succession laws and open the door to other claimants to the non-existent throne.

There is no girlfriend of Grand Duke George known in this moment so we can't know if a change of law will be neccesary or not.

How can GDss Maria change law to apply to other claimants (Nicholas Romanovich Romanov etc). It is legally imposible. She can only "write new rule" for future (his son and his children etc)

If GD Georgi dont marry, Imperial House will die out after death of Maria/Georgi IMO. Btw, what about adoption? Is it possible? I dont know if anybody of you is familiar with Karl Schwarzenberg adoption. He was adopted by his ucle who had only a daughter not a son.

He will marry probably but depends if it will be an equal marriage or not.

Likely, since his mother refuses to let him go.

That doesn't answer my question, it might be likely, but what happens to all the pretending?
