My post on mail order brides stirred up a ruckus. I'm sure many of you wondered, "where are the mail order grooms"? Okay, nobody wondered that. But if you did wonder, here's the site for you: Mail Order Husbands.

I was about to say, "SIGN ME UP" and then I looked at all the pictures and like 3 profiles. Okay okay. I'm a shallow bitch with hi expectations. You know like, basic grooming practices.

Good laugh though, thanks.

*amused* Perhaps I should order one for a female friend of
mine. :)

Seriously, though, i think the demand will get higher and
higher. Maybe I should run a mail-order-husband business.

Has anyone done any market research yet?

If women really wanted to find mates, they'd be more willing to date *me*!

Well there are more and more women in their thirties and fourties who aren't married. But IMO that's more because they set such high standards than because they can't find *any* men. If women would lower their standards they wouldn't have such a big problem finding a husband- and husbands wouldn't be looking over seas for wives. IMHO, the fact that more and more men are looking elsewhere for wives indicates that women are only raising their standards.

I just don't think women would be interested in importing foreign husbands.

Well, if they lower their standard, they will marry to the wrong
person and most likely end up in a divorce.

It's true that most women wouldn't be interested in importing
foreign husbands, but I am sure there is a market out there.
I don't know how big it is. If it is big enough to sustain a
business, I am not going to miss the opportunity.

See, I think that depends in which direction they lower their standards. But I agree, there probably is a market for US women marrying attractive European men IF you can get women to look past the "yuck" factor. Have you done any research for this?

No, I haven't. I don't even know where to start. Besides, a market
research is very costly.

I think that site is a joke. I clicked on the success story link and that confirmed it for me.

I seriously don't think any women are that desperate. I hope not.

But what about real mail order husbands?

(Link)
I agree, though I don't think it's very funny. :|

Curious, though- aDifferentPath what are your opinions on mail order husbandry?

I can't speak for women in general but the idea of mail order husbandry is rediculous to me. The problem isn't finding a man, it's finding the man you want to spend the rest of your life with.

Just because you import your spouse doesn't mean you're picking him at random. Who's to say the man you want to spend the rest of your life with has to live near you now?

But that's the answer I expected. Female "g33ks" generally don't have any trouble finding mates.

Disgusting!

I am interested in marrying a man from overseas but when I came to your site, I was pretty dissapointed. First things first: If you're going to advertise men for ladies, atleast make sure they're attractive, and most importantly, clean. We don't want men who are more repulsive than a bunch of filthy hogs, let alone those who look like them. Thank you for the effort, but no thank you.
