I read a post earlier by Eros , saying he'd like his parents to buy him a mail order bride ( I think he was just kidding btw ). Anyway, it inspired me to make this new deep thread. Would you buy one if dating doesn't work out for you? Do you consider it to be prostitution or even slavery?

Oh and I read on Wiki that: "Mail-order bride is a label applied to a woman who publishes her intent to marry someone from another - usually more developed - country. Although the label is widely used, it may have derogatory connotations and may be offensive. [1]

Historically, mail-order brides were women who listed themselves in catalogs and were selected by men for marriage, often with little or no communication between them prior to their first meeting. Sometimes the men and women involved were citizens of different countries, e.g. women from European countries moving to the United States during the 18th and 19th centuries, and sometimes they involved citizens of the same country. Today, most of the women referred to as mail-order brides list themselves on the internet and communicate regularly with their intended husband prior to marriage."

So yeah, it has turned more into an online dating platform, which is mainly the reason the term "mail order bride" seems to have lost a lot of it's bad reputation, but aren't the intents the same? Is "ordering" someone okay? Do you think these men are sexually frustrated to an unknown extend or do they really expect to fall in love by marrying? And the women, are they deceiving themselves or the men?

Oh and you can post pictures of your favourite catalogue woman and tell us what makes her worth ordering You can check them out on this site for example:

I've read tons of books that involve mail order brides...
They always end up with the handsomest, most rich guy in the book!
Oh yeah and thier sex life is phenominal, and everything's hunky dory in the end.

OK, on a serious note...
I think that if both people are willing participants, that it's ok.
But if we're talking selling women or men like slavery or prostitution against thier will... that i thin kis wrong...

Do you think these men are sexually frustrated to an unknown extend or do they really expect to fall in love by marrying? And the women, are they deceiving themselves or the men?

The men are probably either socially inept, or have a need for an immediate wife (various reasons) Either way, if the men are happy with the choice they are making, then more power to them.
The women i think are using the men. They are using them for the purpose of obtaining something. Be it status, or money, or freedom, or just a better life in general... I'm sure most of them have high hopes that they are going to meet their soul mates and be happy for the rest of their lives, but i'm also equally sure that they have a secondary plan of action.

ah man reading this made me laugh my ass off. well if dating doesnt go well with me i would rather die alone than to sink so low as to have to buy some ones love. still if you are 40, not married, not dating, and every girl around you finds you repulsive i say take a shower, get a hair cut, and save your money for gifts for a girl and taking her out to dinner instead of bringing her to your basement so she can have some of your mothers cooking. all seriousness though nothing wrong with it other than it may seem a little weird to some people.

because paying for a new one gets too expensive when you pay one girl one time and she is usable for life

You know, I actually know someone who is taking Russian for the sole purpose of making his being with a Russian mail-order bride a bit easier...The entire class found him hilarious, but I think he was being serious about it. Oh well, not a big deal; that's what I think...

I think I'd rather turn back to an ex before even considering a woman trying to sell herself to me, in any manner. And I have way, way too much pride to go back to an ex. Granted, I'm lucky as a straight guy at an arts school so I've always been short interesting women, as opposed to interested women, but I'd never stoop that low. I know I'm awkward, but I'd never forgive myself for sucking at life that much.

This topic reminds me of marryanamerican. During the reign of George Bush, Someone outside of America would wed you for 4 years. When he got the second term the site fell apart.

In responce to the rapinz', what do you do if you are afraid of STDs? Should you stalk someone and then stick to only raping them until another 'lady of the night' tickles your fancy? Or does that sound like way too much work.

The topic of Mail order brides always remind me of that movie between Anthony Bandaras (woot) and Angelina Jolie (double woot). So he is a successful coffie-man and he orders a wife from America. Jolie arrives, looking nothing like the photo explaining she wants a man that does not treasure her for her looks. Long story short, she steals all his money. :(

One step bellow mail order brides is already occurring on the internet with something like suggurdaddy.com (think thats it), where women can basically say how much they are worth and cost to go out with, and men do the spending.

Your other stuff is too deep for me to comment on atm, perhaps another time.

Wasn't kidding btw.

Oh and one last thing before I go, what do you guys thing of Olesya...hum??
