re: Would you like a mail order bride? WOWYH? (Posted on 11/14/12 at 2:34 pm to Polycarp)
I watched a documentary on guys who do this and it was one of the creepiest things I have ever watched. That being said, it is easy to set up something with asians. I had an employee of mine make me an offer to get her cousins over here from Vietnam. $40k with half up front and the other half when she gets citizenship. You also get to claim her on your taxes. She brought this up to me out of the blue so my natural response was "Is she hot"? She told me it depends on which one I get! The next day she tells me the hot one in the family won't leave the motherland.

The manager of an apartment complex I used to live at in the past went to Vietnam and got a 24 year old bride (he was 45). They had a kid and seemed happy in the beginning but he found her banging one of the apt residents a few years later.

Not surprising. Let's look at it from her perspective. She was 24, apparently in a situation desperate enough to be willing to move halfway around the world to be supported by a male stranger twice her age. Of course, once she got here other opportunities opened up.
The guy I knew who did this played it smarter (I don't know if deliberately) by picking a woman in her late 30's. He was in his late 40's so it was much more legit.
