    So, I was checking today's news and I came across an article about the high instances of spousal abuse that mail order brides get from their husbands. This got me wondering about the whole mail order bride thing in the first place. Let's start with some questions:

    1. Does anyone here actually know or know of someone with a mail order bride?
    2. What kind of person actually thinks this is a good idea?
    3. Do you think that a rare few actually do this because they want to help someone out(I personally think that 99.99% of the men who do this must have some SERIOUS social anxiety, inadequacies, big hand touches the little hand wacko-jacko syndrome)?
    4. Any guess on the divorce rate(has to be way above 85%)?


    I just find this to be such an odd practice. So odd, in fact, that I never really was aware of how often this takes place. By simply typing in 'mail order bride' in a yahoo or google search you come across THOUSANDS of women willing to do this.

    Seems so sad that they want to get out of their country so badly that they are willing marry someone they don't even know(but heck, maybe some of them are so bad off that it is well worth it to try and do this for a few years before breaking it off). I guess I am saying its less weird on the woman's part and a lot stranger on the man's part(when considering that the woman is most likely trying to escape insurmountable odds of leaving oppression otherwise).

    Makes you wonder something else too...

    Think about how many of these men actually believe that the relationship will work out and that the woman will actually have any interest in him whatsoever. I just picture these guys as being the kid who always had his lunch money taken from him/was beat up, never became a social creature, caved in, sheltered himself from society, got addicted to video games and porn, and somehow convinced himself that he can get some from a hot Russian chick and she will actually like it. Or something like that ;)

    I read this as well, and posted about it in the other marriage thread of the day.

    These women have no hope where they are, so they take a chance. On the plus side for the women, pre-nuptial agreements they enter into are routinely tossed by courts and they do get to come to America with the head start money of their soon to be ex-husbands assets. Many of these women have children out of wedlock they forget to mention until they arrive to America and insist the new hubby take in as well. Why does one need to go abroad to find a wife? The concept of a traditional wife is long gone, regardless of locale. "Eddie, I want half Eddie!"

    Some of the weddings are mob set ups where the Russian women are owned by the Russian mafia. The new bride's job is to sift through the husband's finacials while he is at work to give her bosses his account numbers and vital assets for identity theft purposes.

    Interesting thread. I strongly suspect/believe that one of my college roomates got himself a mail-order bride (She is from Japan). Didn't really know he was dating anybody, suddenly he is engated to this woman. They've been married now for a few years, and have 2 kids. They do seem to have a wierd relationship, he is the dominant one, and she is very submissive. Your quote above could be a good descrption of him. He was the guy that would get pranked on all of the time.

    I don't know for sure if his wife was a mail order bride, but I really think she is. It just all fits together.

    I dont see it really any different than the olden days of when you were set up by family members. The major difference is you can trust the people setting it abit more. Still a messed situation, either way. Dont know why a man in the west would consider this option.

    I've met a couple that married that way. He's sort of short, but a nice guy, she's a knockout. Tall, blonde, built. They've been together a while, maybe they're one of the success stories?

    I had a mail order bride once. She kept losing air, so I had to send her back.

    Anyone ever dated a Ruskie? Did she have a lot of moles? I've dated Croatians, Serbians and Russians and they have moles. Big ones.

    LOL! BRUCE'S KEYBOARD! GIVE IT BACK!!

    Actually I used a shop here in Houston once for Safety Inspection, and in the guy's office (run of the mill place) was this pic of a knock out.......he caught me looking and showed the baby pics..she was a Russian student here at UoH.....he was going to sell all, and return with her (she was Radio/Film/TV grad) and it so impressed her, she stayed here....

    So that one was working last time I knew.....not quite on Topic, but close.

    I'll check back on them.....LOL!

    You actual mileage may vary.......C'mon JohnFutureOwner, we'll strap a rack of surfboards on the 308GTB and do a 'wave check'.......bring the THICK wetsuit....brrrrrrr!
