Frontier interethnic relations take different forms due to many factors defined by a peculiar frontier stage or a phase. There are three frontier stages that differ from each other. They are early frontier, active frontier and postfrontier. One of the markers that can help to mark out a concrete stage of it is a role of interethnic gender relations. They can be presented in various forms, mainly through such terms as acceptance, negation and as a norm. On the early frontier the interethnic marriage is acceptable and even beneficial. During the active stage this interethnic marriage is looked as unfavorable, it has negative connotation and is neglected by dominant or both actors of frontier relations. This frontier stage is characterized by military confrontation and any gender relations with the opposite actor are not approved by a society. In a period of postfontier all interethnic relations and especially interethnic matrimonial relations are again accepted by a society. They turn into a norm and are free from any axiological judgments. We can find a vivid historical evidence for some of these types of relations in Russian Frontier history. Interethnic gender relations were a common practice in the period of the early Frontier. Though this practice didn't excluded confrontation and conflicts. In the period of the active frontier stage this interethnic marriages were not acceptable due to many factors. One of them was a religious characteristic of the actors of these relations. All interreligious relations were excluded but the interethnic marriage was acceptable by a dominant society if a stranger changed her or his religious status.
