Huffington post article defeats the idea that international

Postby steve55 » October 6th, 2014, 7:17 am

Huffington post article defeats the idea that international brides are just desperate to leave their country.
Article authored by By Julia Meszaros - visiting professor at UW Oshkosh

"These women are often educated, a large number speak English, and many of them are not desperate to leave their home countries. In fact, most of the women I met involved in the romancetours and websites reminded me of Paola on 90-Day Fiancé: confident
and educated. Paola certainly does not seem like a victim, and neither
did any of my interviewees."

Here is a quote from the author of that article:

"We need to stop using the term 'mail order bride,' since it makes these women sound like purchased sexual slaves. No legitimate American introduction agency can actually sell you a wife. Period.

Relationships conducted online are increasingly the norm, and why not expand that internet search beyond American borders? We all need to recognize that the term mail order bride is incredibly offensive and stigmatizing for any couple involved in an international relationship, regardless of the way in which they met."


It's nice to see someone write something positive about international marriages for once. :D

"Trying to meet women in America is like trying to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphics."
