Nepali girls sold as "brides" to old South Koreans

Unscrupulous marriage bureaus are thriving in Nepal who lure young girls for weddings with 'handsome' Korean men, only to find out that they have been cheated and married to males of their father's age. Read more

Would this be considered a 'sugardaddy' arrangement ?

It is amazing how people fall for scams so willingly, yet when an honorable guy wants to get married w. not much to offer money wise, but would take care of the girl w. all his heart, he is treated w. suspicion.

Not only in Nepal, but this is the sad state of affairs in the world, in personal life and in business life. It is easier to attract investment for a ponzi scheme than it is for an honorable business :(

They are NOT desperate, they also DO NOT know they are getting married to OLD S.Koreans.

They spend MILLIONs for these Marriages. They are deceived by saying that they are being arranged with a S.Korean man who is seeking ARRANGED MARRIAGE.

That's it, they SPEND MILLIONs to the "brokers", WHY? well, I don't know either. I don't know why they seek S. Koreans.

My best guess is: they just want to escape the political turmoil/deadlock in the Country, after all, they are going to have to marry one man or another, so they find this "offer" attractive when they learn about S.Koreans seeking Arranged Marriage (only to find out they are being married to OLD S. Korean men).

But HEY! this is not just happening to Nepalese.
