Why Do American Men Seek Mail Order Brides?

Why are so many American men seeking brides from abroad when there are so many single women at home? There are several reasons:

(1) Nobody at home wants to marry them (in some cases)

Unfortunately, the popular image of the alcoholic, abusive loser who takes a foreign bride because no local woman will marry him is sometimes accurate. It would certainly be painting with too broad a brush to say that all American men who seek international brides are like this, the abusive personality does seem to be well represented among men seeking bride from overseas. It makes a lot of sense when you think about it – the foreign bride often knows very little about her husband when she comes over. By the time she discovers who he really is, she is far from home, economically dependent, unable to afford to go back home, and sometimes pregnant. Abusers sometimes take full advantage of this situation by forcing their brides to submit to treatment that few American women would put up with.

(2) Citizenship in a prosperous Western nation greatly increases their position in the marriage market. The hope of a new life in rich America (or some other Western country) is certainly the top reason why women from third world countries wish to marry Western men (if you don’t think so, ask yourself how many of these women pursue men from Peru or Indonesia). Since the number of women is far greater than the number of Western men looking for them, supply and demand favors the Western man. It thus becomes no problem at all for a man in his 50s to marry a 20-year-old Chinese model, for example.

(3) A lot of American men don’t like American women. One could say that opposite attract, but complaints abound among a certain segment of American men that feminism has gone too far, that it no longer has anything to do with equal rights or fairness, and that it has morphed US women into a third gender – neither masculine nor feminine, confused about their gender identity, and forever competing rather than cooperating to prove that “women can do anything men can do”. This silent war between the sexes creates a competitive atmosphere, some say, that destroys any chance for true intimacy between spouses. Because of this, American men turn to foreign countries to find a bride (and American women increasingly look overseas for husbands!).

    Hell to the no!

    We American women are known world wide for our selfishness. Most of us believe self fulfillment is a big deal. That is the root of our undesirability when it comes to global culture.

    The only universal draw for American ladies would be ye olde green card.

    No, most anyone marries American to get into America. Men or women.

    Americans don’t have a desire to be mail order anything.
    They just aspire to be gold diggers here in this country.

    Women want to come to the US for economic opportunity. There isn’t the same drive for American women to immigrate elsewhere. There could be demand for American women, but the supply is lacking.

    it is sad that women the world over prostitute themselves to get out of their countries of origin by becoming mail order brides. a life of abuse, devaluation awaits most of them. i think that shit should be banned. it is a legal form of human trafficking and it is complete bull shit.

    I think american women is not the most desired woman that a men would like to called his wife, this is all because how they exposed them self to the world, "girls gone wild", "the real housewives of bla bla", that’s a real life situation. The only thing a men from other countries after is for green card or sex…its not long term bond.
