Trump Brings Prestige to the Mail Order Bride Industry.
For years, International Marriage Services had to live with the stigma of being referred to as Mail Order Bride services. However, many consider the term "mail-order bride" derogatory and feel it demeans foreign women by comparing them to commodities for sale and falsely implying that (unlike local women), they exercise no judgment over the men they meet and would marry anyone from a relatively wealthy country. Even with the foreign women being labeled as mail order brides these companies have grown in popularity for the past two decades, largely due to the internet. The industry grew at such a fast pace it caught the attention of the US senator Maria Cantwell of Washington State, who in 2006 she pushed a bill through congress known as IMBRA or International Marriage Brokers Regulation Act. Although the intent of Senator Cantwell was clearly meant to put Foreign Bride Companies out of business by severely restricting how men communicate with foreign women. In the end, the companies flourished under the new regulations as these business quickly modified their business models.
The only thing that bothers me about this is that people refer to Slovenia as an Eastern European country. It's Central Europe.
I consider the Baltic states to be eastern Europe..?
They were classified as Northern by UN.
Unless you mean Balkans.. in that case yea, except for Slovenia :)
No I was referring to the Baltic states. Honestly I didn't realize "northern Europe" was actually a thing. Lol. I mean sure, geographically.. but culturally?
