Western Men Seeking Marriage With Asian Brides

By: Elaine Edwards

Due to the difficulty in securing a bride in their home country, many Western men today have looked abroad for marriage. Today, Western men tend to favor Asian mail order brides for marriage. A mail order bride is a woman who signs herself up with a marriage agency who offers her as a spouse to a male foreigner looking for a bride.

The mail order bride system has increased in recent years, with thousands of young women coming to the United States by marrying Western men. Today, there are numerous of online dating services featuring young, beautiful Asian women in search of Western counterparts. It is estimated that up to 150,000 women from different countries register themselves to apply as mail order brides.

Many Western men today prefer to have an Asian as their wife because they are very attractive physically. They are very feminine, petite and slender with delicate features and innate grace. An Asian bride is also gentle and polite because a typical Asian upbringing engenders its women with the importance of manners and respect for others.

They are also very loyal and attentive to their partner.

Marriage is valued very highly in Asian culture and is seen as a commitment to be undertaken with the utmost seriousness. In fact, most Asian countries has have a very low divorce rate because differences between spouses are resolved due to this commitment. Asian brides also are highly conscious of the paramount significance of family. In essence, Asian women have grown up respecting traditions that have existed in their homelands for thousands of years, of which marriage and family are an indispensable part.

Compared to other foreign brides, Asian brides are also easily adaptable to new cultures. One of the endearing trait of Asian women, their friendliness and politeness, ensures that they quickly make new friends wherever they go. They also view the West highly so that they are easily assimilate to Western culture.

Asian women also notice the benefits in marriage to Western men and get its worth associated with it. They value Western men for their deference, consideration and chivalry. However, you cannot easily match these attributes to their male counterparts in their own countries. In Asian culture, women are seen as being secondary and indeed subservient to their husbands, rather than interacting on the same level as them. Asian women are also raised to be very polite and respectful. These traits are not reciprocated in their own countries due to their second class treatment.

Asian women also value the security that Western men can give them. Asian women advertising themselves as mail order brides have an inherent desire to enter into marriage and family life and understand that Western men can offer the stability, both economically and emotionally. Most countries in Asia are still developing economically so that staying home is not a practical option. Marriage to Western men is viewed as a way out of the endemic poverty across some Asian countries.

Even if Western men are older, which can be a negative perception in Western marraiges, Asian brides view this positively. Asian cultures generally values wisdom, maturity and dependability that comes with age.
