In the past, mail-order brides listed themselves in catalogues and magazines with the intention of attracting a man for marriage.
These days, with the advent of new technology, Asian mail order brides are typically found online.
Generally, international marriage agencies (as they’re commonly referred to as) will sell men the contact details of their female clients and encourage them to correspond and meet up with the ultimate goal/intention being marriage.
These agencies also offer the opportunity to visit a foreign country and meet potentially hundreds of women at specially designed events which are organized by the agency thus giving the men a chance to meet a large selection potential partners up close.
So how much do Asian brides cost?
The price depends on several things, such as the country they’re coming from, their family, as different families will request different prices and how old she is (with younger brides tending to be more expensive).
That being said, expect to pay anywhere between $4,000 and $40,000 for a bride. This figure includes agency fees, although you may need to pay to fly out to your brides’ local country to meet her and her family to get engaged.
Mail-order brides from Asia are incredibly popular these days, as many Western men are looking for a traditional wife who will stay at home during the day, cook the meals, take care of the children and keep the house clean, rather than the typical career-driven Western woman.
For Asian women, the prospect of a better, higher status life is often too good to turn down, which is why they apply to these agencies with the hope of meeting a nice Western man to sweep them off of their feet.
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to be a mega-rich entrepreneur to attract the attentions of a mail-order bride. Because many Asian mail order brides live in such poor areas/countries, even a modest home and income in the Western world is far more than they could ever have dreamed to imagine having back home.
Of course, you must have a sustainable job that pays the bills, and it is often stated that you must be a homeowner (or have a renewable tenancy agreement with your landlord) in order to apply for a mail-order bride.
When looking for an Asian mail-order bride, it is best to do so by getting in touch with a well established agency that prides itself
on properly vetting the women it takes on.
Often times, you’ll find agencies that don’t have any kind of quality control (or who don’t properly investigate their client’s backgrounds), meaning you’re very much playing a lottery where you could end up meeting a woman who isn’t being totally honest with you about her life, her age, her profession, etc.
Another reason why Asian brides are so popular is that a lot of Asian women (in particular those from Thailand) have a good grasp on the English language, making communication between the two of you much easier.
