It's particularly good for people wanting cheap property too or to live the 'homesteading' life , since houses come with large plots of land.
I know of a few English people who have moved over there for a simpler and cheaper life away from the UK. They also seem to have a much better view towards refugees than western countries and are proud of keeping their culture and values.
As for the guy who started this thread, you're setting yourself up for failure. The moment you move her to a western country, its already game over.
You can try to restrict her behaviour and friends all you want, but eventually she'll talk to someone and make friends. Then she'll start thinking 'maybe he's stopping me from being free, I should find someone less controlling', and then her friends will agree and she'll be westernised before you know. IF she even leaves the house she will be surrounded by the culture everywhere and absorb it. The only way to keep her the way she is would be to live in the environment she comes from.
Women are typically nicer in poor countries, since they need to find a husband and can't afford to be stuck up and reject guys as much. But once they're in a western country they adapt like a chameleon and change to fit the environment.
I don't know, maybe your situation will be different.
