Mail Order Brides – Love, Money or Control?
I believe in Love and that it can be found in various ways. According to Wiki:
"Mail-order bride is a label applied to a woman who publishes her intent to marry someone from another, usually more financially developed, country.”
They list themselves in catalogues or online and are selected by men for marriage. I’m sure many men have found true Love this way ٩(•̃•̃)۶ ♥ ٩(•̃•̃)۶ but I can’t help but see the other side of the coin which is:
a) Most of the men are twice the age of the lady concerned.
b) When the “bride” travels back with her husband – she loses her independence and becomes totally reliant on him. Not only financially, but in communication because most of them don’t speak English. In some instances, things have gone terribly wrong.
c) Womens Rights Campaigners see it as being one step away from Human Trafficking.
* You never know though – True Love could blossom.

Useful Tips for Men
Some Men say they are tired of aggressive, feminist, western women and with *25,000 women signing up to marriage agencies yearly (and that’s just Russia – *Sky News) I’m sure the men will be spoilt for choice. So, if you are a man thinking of getting a Mail Order Bride, here are some helpful tips.
a) Don’ fall in love with a photo. Get to know the person.
b) Communicate with many ladies and meet as many as you can.
c) Try not to to rush things.
d) Get some language skills. E.g, If you are going for someone from Ukraine, then learn a few words and phrases from Ukraine.
e) Find about the woman’s culture, E.g Russian brides have a Russian brides ransom culture.
Also, bear in mind that there are many factors why women resort to international dating. Some see it as a way out of living in their society, others seek to escape abusive men in their country and ofcourse some are genuinely looking for L♥ve.
