Internet brides

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asia-pa...319072.stm

More and more British men are getting internet or "mail order" brides from overseas. Is this healthy (either for them, or the brides, or for our society in general)? What's wrong with British women (and why don't large numbes of British women do the same thing and pick up Thai toyboys)?

Would you consider it embarrassing if a friend or relation got themselves a Thai bride?

In this global market we have, we import a lot of merchandise from the far east, so I suppose there's no reason to exclude brides from that.

Mind you, I hear that some British men use the internet to find a home-grown woman of the English rose variety, some are even stingy enough to avoid paying an agency fee and trawl chat sites till they find someone suitable for free. Anyone know of an example?

Hello Mikado,

Thai brides. A friend of mine has been married for ten years now to a Thai bride.

We that is my circle of friends, in the days prior to him going abroad to meet up with the many prospective wives through a foreign agency would rile him.
He did take it all in good humour, such is the nature of him being a good sport.

What was curious about his reasons for choosing a Thai bride, is that he felt he was forever being spoken down to, disrespected by assertive and augumentative white women. So therefore he'd rather have himself a wife who would literally love, honour and obey.

We don't rile him anymore as he and his Thai wife have made the marriage work, they also have two beautiful children and on one of many conversations with the wife, they really do enjoy each others company and they have few arguments.

So there you go. They can work.

It will never work the opposite way, British women taking on a Thai toyboy, could well find out the chap desires to become a lady boy. OOps.

I just saw a show on the Discovery Channel a few nights back about the American Men/Russian Brides thing. I really thought that was over!:unsure: But these are very well off men, middle aged (50-ish), and they spend obscene amounts of money to go over and 'court' these women who want to get OUTTA Russia. It's really sad. The Thai Bride thing...can't help but think of "Little Britain" and Ting Tong and whats-hisface!!:pimp:

I guess I'm Cornish...:unsure:

I have no strong feeling about it either wy, as long as both parties are happy.

Plenty of middle aged wealthy businessmen have mch younger brides who see the wealth as part of the attraction of the man. It doesn't much matter what part of the world they come from.
