Subject: Mail order Russian brides .... why?
ChdNorm    8/15/2005 2:33:44 AM
So whats the deal with all the mail order Russian brides? I bet I get three or four spam emails a week offering websites and things about them. Is this the result of the poor economy and bleak outlook or what? It'd be something to be willing to marry pretty much a stranger and move half way around the world, leaving your life, family, and everything youve ever known behind. PS: I'm married myself ... but damned if a few of them arent pretty hot!

How Bad is it in Russia exactly? I don't hear about Other third world Nations ofering Brides? But It seems worse than Mexico as far as I know.

It does sound gross I suppose. However I suppose it would not be immoral in and of itself, so long as both parties consent. After all they would still be lawfully married. I would wonder though if they had consented. On the other hand you can always ask if she was shanghaied once she arrives.

it seems may be getting alittle off topic, but i will add to discussion. i watching a documentary earlier this week regarding the sex slave trade there. it was absolutely horrifying. the gist of the doc was the peddlers claimed that the girls could make big $ in factories out of country and helped them get there. then held their passports and sold them to pimps who in turn used them up for a few months then sold them off. i was in awe to see how cruel people could be to one another. now back to the main topic of russian mail order brides, for the most part many many russian women are very attractive. another documentary on this explained that russian men pretty much treated their women like trash. seemed like a huge stereotype to me. i dont buy that at all. im sure some do just like here in the usa. looks like the real reason is the poverty. the girls would rather be "hooked up" with an american man so they can move to the states to have a better life. it must be pretty bad to want to leave your homeland. its pretty unfortunate. to take this one step further, i think it would have been pretty interesting to see if russia had taken more similiar views as the uk, usa. instead of building up such a powerful military during the cold war, should have been on the same side as the usa and concentrate on improving their infrastructure. nobody could have screwed with them if they were allies with the us. hindsight is always 20/20. interesting to think of "what could have been".

Soviet Russia and the USA in a tree k-i-s-s-i-n-g? That would be the most interisting history class. What could the two sopwer powers due? Destroy the "Peoples Republic of China", Make the UN work, Colonize Mars,Moon, and Earth orbit, Bring semi world peace for a while, Descover Cold fussion, Make suborbital commercial planes, Killed all the Lawyers, and worp the univers to travel faster than the speed of light, and all of it would be done by last year. Not to mintion that the Russians would not have that Mail order bride stuff.

Its because in russia the male-female demographics is slanted towards more women, if your a 28 yr old woman and not married you are an old maid. In US demographics is slanted to more men

Just noticed this old thread. Other than wanting to get out of Russia, Russian women generally complain that Russian men are pigs and treat women like dogs. Remarkably, American men are much nicer to women... There are many highly-educated Russian women who would appreciate an admiring American gentleman. There are undoubtly scams to be found, but the "fact" about Russian men is one of the major motivators.  Obviously, economic factors are a major issue as well.  A friend of mine used to date some of these women who would fly over from Russia. Absolutely gorgeous women - most all of them with graduate degrees including doctors etc.

I once knew someone who said: "Why live in Russia if you can go to prison in Denmark?"
He had tried both. Does that answer Your question?
