There are lots of American women marrying foreign men and getting them visa's to the USA. Most of them are fat chicks.
Yeh! It is just a racket. It is also an avenue to bring into our country terrorists.

I know someone who married a russian girl in russia. After he returned to the USA, while she stayed behind in russia to finalize the paper work, she communicated with him that she wanted him to change his mindset away from evil American politics and embrace "her Putin". Needless to say, she is still in russia, and the American is not legally bound in the USA, where he did not sign the papers to make her his legal wife. She just got a russian divorce, and is currently pursuing a Belgium that she met on the internet. This is a true posting.
A man of your acquaintance abandons his Russian wife because she refuses to embrace the moron G.W. Bush and you approve! I wonder if you realise what an unflattering picture that you have painted.

There are lots of American men marrying foreign women (Eastern Europe) and getting them visas to the USA. Most of them are fat blokes.

Jeez!! you are really a two headed snake!! The man is a demoRAT and his russian ex-wife is a card carrying Nashi!! That was the problem! She basically wanted him to renounce his country. Bush had nothing to do with it. Hopefully, he will drop the liberal in him and become a conservative. Of course, he is not too fond of russians now. Before, it was quite the opposite. Still, his problem and not mine!

Ok I will say this, I married a Belarusian, not a mail order bride though, but I have freinds who met Russian women and married them while they worked on oil modules in Sahklin Island, and Magadan, Russia. So far out of 4 couples, two have worked out great, and the other two didn't. The one couple that did not was both of their faults....drinking, drugs, etc...the other one that didn't work out was definently her fault. He's a great guy, and she scammed him hardcore. So it's about a 50-50 ratio out of those 4 couples. None of those relationships were mail order brides, but they were Russian-American marriages.
I think every case is a differen't scenario so it's hard to put a finger on what the problem is
I'm sure there are Russian women just looking for a visa, and I am sure there are American men looking for nothing but a 1950's wife. I think it's all up to the people involved, and I don't think these couples get to know each other well enough before they marry. Best thing I could recommend is to take a few months and live with them over there...the longer the better, that way both have a clue as to what they are getting into. It's not a perfect solution, but it helps.
I lived with my wife for 6 weeks in Minsk, then again for 8 weeks in Minsk before we got married, and we also talked on voice chat everyday (Google Talk) after we met. So we both had a good idea of what the other person was like before we took the plunge.

Now here is something I did notice while I was over there. Minsk, and most of eastern europe is full of beautifull women. I don't know if it's the water there or what, but those women a drop dead beautiful. If a guy was to do his homework on a city...Minsk, Ukraine, etc...and he just flew over there without knowing anyone, he could end up with several chicks that look like models. The first time I was in Minsk, I had a hard time not looking all the time(wife was with me all the time). They are everywhere over there. Which one is a good one is hard to say, so a guy would just have to "test drive a few of them".:D

The old saying "Beauty is only skin deep" certainly applies to many women. The most beautiful woman can be a devil inside. A female black widow spider certainly looks attractive to a male black widow who is ready to fornicate. But he soon pays for his lust with his death, after she kills and eats him soon after copulation. Beauty may be the initial attraction, but it is in the personality and principle and moral foundation that keeps a relationship going.

The russian gals are just self-serving users. They just use the guy to get the green card and his money, then dump him and go to Brighton Beach and party with the other russians. However, sooner or later, they will become unwanted drunking slobs. Such as befits any parasite.

I married a girl from the Ukraine that I met on http://Lovedbyher.com Turned out to be the best decision of my life. Homeland Security did a study (they posted it on INS site) and showed foregin marriages had a divorce rate of 20% and American-American had a divorce rate of 52%.

You couldn't get me to marry an American woman if that was all that was left on the planet.

I don't know??? I heard all of this stuff when I married an Asian Mail Order Bride... I took this girl to my home in Vermont and for the last 9 years I've had a pretty little sex slave, that showers and makes herself look pretty, before I come home and she'd be upset if I didn't make love to her. She cooks my food and cleans our home, almost to the point where I feel like I'm taking advantage of her. Then she begs me to let her take care of her home and her man, the way sho knows how??? I;ve been in heaven for the last 9 years and truthfully, your better off with the way a Russian girl will rob you, then being with an honest "American" Chick... Half the romors you here about forigen brides is started by american Women, who are just so spoiled and stupid, they haven't figured out that it's them that has you looking at the internet ads for Russian Chicks...

well, I am a Russian woman who married an American man. No, I was not a mail-order bride. Believe me, I always thought I'd be the last person to immigrate into US. I came on student exchange to a law school. I met him at a school party, we hooked up, started having sex. Then I went back home. And he would not leave me alone. He left US first time in his life, came over, started begging me to marry him. I kept saying no. I had my school, career plans, good family. Left alone the fact that I was very pretty even by Russian standards. But he kept asking and asking. And men in Russia, they are okay, but... all that excessive drinking, life expectancy for Russian men is 53, yes 53... Anyway, we got married. What a hell I thought, his an all-American guy, has a big family, all emphasize being vets ant patriots, bla, bla. 10 years older than I am, has a colledge degree. Well, to make long story short this marriage was a biggest mistake ever. His parents, brothers, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc are the most useless sets of DNA ever. Women are just so useless, aimless, jobless, moneyless, shapeless, witless... Men are not much better eitherÖ under f cked, overworked. And my own darling... no ambition, no dreams, no planning, nothing. Just day in and day out. Same sh. Why buy a home, renting is cheaper. Why go back to school, you have to read so much. Why get your own business, who need responsibility. Why plan kids, lets count blessings and have all that God gives you (like all the looser women do in his family). Whatever
Anyway, we had a kid. I'm on diet, I exercise, I look great. Face, body, everything. I have a part time until our kid starts school. Then I'll go back to school. Do you think he appreciates that? NOOOO. He just does not give a sh. And all I do is be good to him. I do not complain. I pay my bills, I cook, I clean, I look like a super model, I don't screw around (well, I do very seldom, but he definitely does not know that), I take care of our child who speaks 3 languages at the age 4, etc. But he does not appreciate that at all. maybe he's depressed I don't know. I hear all his friends, co-workers making remarks how lucky he is having wife like me. He doesn't care about me. Keeps telling me "I wish I would have married some fat hog from my small town in New England, would have been less complicated ". Oh, it is just so complicated with me. And sex.. it is terrible. I watch porn, make him do so too. And what... do you thing he wants to do smth he sees. Nooooooooooo. Wife is for bearing kids and taking care of the house. I am really sick of paying this money for tickets to fly to Russia just to get laid. I try to talk ,we talk, but no changes. Iíd like to divorce him. But I have nowhere to go. Canít go back to Russia, my family is really unhappy about me screwing up so bad. Stay in US and try to be on my own and go to work for 40K/year, Iíll never survive on that and will never be able to go to grad school. Every morning I wake up I am the very happy because I am one day closer to not being with him.
