I work at a grocery store as a cashier and i see alot of different people and every once in a while i would get the occasional foreigner who can't speak english. but sometimes i would get a couple where the wife doesn't speak a word of english but the husband is american. the usual foreigners would be asian, russian or hispanic. then i started to think that these guys married to these foreign chicks aren't that special looking which lead to a question. Could some of the women be mail order brides? it just seems a little weird that the husband just happens to have a close relationship where the woman doesn't speak a word of english. i'm not sure what to make of it. also do you think there are alot of mail order brides roaming around?

My guitar teacher basically did the mail order bride, and now he has two kids and hates his life. That was enough to end my curiosity.

Mail order brides? I don't think I've ever come across one. Do they really exist?

My grandpa [who i dont speak to] is one of those creepy old dudes.

It's the reason why I have a two year uncle and a four year old aunty.
...In my opinion.

Maybe the people you see don't make looks their main priority, and maybe they're also bilingual. I know wrapping your head around both of those concepts is difficult, but you can do it.

No, silly. We don't MARRY them.
We just shack up with them for a bit then ship them back for a new model.

They exist.
There's a company in the former Soviet Union that will pay American men 25k to marry a woman and get her through all the testing that's required. There was a TV special about it a few weeks ago.... I have a friend who's debating taking advantage of it.

Me... nah.... I've been married too many times to even think about it.

I think he meant maybe some of them are mail order brides, not ALL of them lol.

Anywhooo, I think it's possible. Ask them, the wife won't be offended because she doesn't speak the language.

The bigger issue. Trying to ring them up if they have a WIC check and they don't speak English and they happen to get NON-WIC items. Try explaining it to them, honestly. I can speak spanish some but I don't have time to learn German/Polish/ect...

Yeah. They yell at me like I spent all their money on their card, or that I didn't put it back on in the beginning of the month.

well, from what i've seen, most of the 'american' husbands are soldiers that toured in said foreign country and fell in love, i guess, with their current wife.

My great uncle has been married to one for like 15 years or so. He's around 55 and she's around 35... yeah it's weird. She's wants a baby but he has a vasectomy that he hasn't told her about. He pretty much uses her for sex. I know they don't love each other. She pretty much ****s around behind his back though lol... all her myspace pictures are with rich looking dudes with a bunch of booze in their hands. I know they get ****ed up.

But yeah, mail order brides are pretty much like a permanent prostitute that you can buy. No real love connection, just mindless sex (and STDs if your bride hasn't been checked) .

I think this concept of mail order brides is pretty smart. You can see that on average, people with mail order brides last longer then people not marrying foreigners. Plus I'd love to find a Swedish girl that is beautiful, smart, bilingual, loves kids, AND ME! Most of em are actually looking for love which is kinda sweet to think about.
