Her construction worker husband spends most of the year away from the village and was not present when AFP visited, but her grey-haired father-in-law seemed proud of the newest addition to his family.

The Vietnamese lady attracts attention with her slender and petite figure, her rich dark skin, long dark hair and beautiful, luminescent brown eyes. In the cities, there is no excuse for a woman to appear in public without being in some kind of stunning apparel. Bad habits are unusual and unacceptable to most Vietnamese ladies. Marriage is considered a life-time commitment and girls usually marry anywhere between 18 and 25 years of age. She is a loyal wife, a caring mother, an excellent cook and a diligent homemaker.


Vietnam, officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is a country in Southeast Asia. It borders China, Laos, and Cambodia. With an estimated 90.3 million inhabitants, Vietnam is comprised of a geographical area of 331,210 km2 (28,565 sq. mi) in which the dominant ethnic group is Vietnamese (85.7 %). The capital of Vietnam is Hanoi and the largest city is Ho Chi Minh. The official national language of Vietnam is Vietnamese. French is spoken by many educated, older Vietnamese as a second language with most Vietnamese youths now learning English in school. About 85% of Vietnamese identify with Buddhism. Though the climate tends to vary in the different latitudes, the most pleasant time to visit Vietnam is generally from December to February.


One of the most common forms of modern-day bride-buying is mail-order brides. It is estimated that there are 90 agencies that deal with the selling and purchasing of mail order brides.[5] These agencies have websites that list the addresses, pictures, names and biographies of up to 25,000 women that are seeking husbands, with American husbands being the most common preference. While there are women listed on these sites from all over the world, the majority of mail-order brides come from Russia and the Philippines. According to these agencies, 10% of women who choose to become mail-order brides are successful and find a husband through their services. The agencies also state that there are around 10,000 mail-order marriages a year, with about 4,000 of these marriages involving men in the United States.


Bride-buying is an old tradition in China.[6] The practice was largely stamped out by the current Chinese Communist government. However, the modern practice is "not unusual in rural villages"; it is also known as mercenary marriage.[7] According to Ding Lu of the non-governmental organization All-China Women's Federation, the practice had a resurgence due to China's surging economy.[6] From 1991 to 1996, Chinese police rescued upwards of 88,000 women and children who had been sold into marriage and slavery, and the Chinese government claimed that 143,000 traffickers involved were caught and prosecuted. Some human rights groups state that these figures are not correct and that the real number of abducted women is higher. Bay Fang and Mark Leong reported in U.S. News & World Report that "the government sees the commerce in wives as a shameful problem, it has only in recent years begun to provide any statistics, and it tries to put the focus on the women who have been saved rather than on the continuing trade."[8] Causes include poverty and bride shortage in the rural areas (rural women go to the cities to work).[6] As women leave rural areas to find work in cities, they are considered more vulnerable to being "tricked or forced into becoming chattel for men desperate for wives."[8] The shortage of brides in turn is due to amplification of the traditional preference of Chinese couples for sons by the 1979 one-child policy in China.[6] The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences estimated that in 1998 there were 120 men for every 100 women, with imbalances in rural areas being about 130 males for every 100 females. The increase in the cost of dowries is also a contributing factor leading men to buy women for wives. Human Rights in China states that it is more affordable for a man to buy a wife from a trafficker for 2,000 to 4,000 yuan than to pay a traditional dowry, which often runs upwards of 10,000 yuan. For the average urban worker, wife selling is an affordable option, since in 1998 at least; China urban workers made approximately $60 a month.[8] Brides for sale are outsourced from countries such as Burma, Laos, Pakistan,[9] Vietnam and North Korea. The bride-traders sell women as brides or as prostitutes depending on their physical appearance. A common trick employed by bride-brokers in acquiring brides for sale is the offer of a job such as in factories and instead kidnapping them. Bride-traders can sell a young woman for the price of $250 to $800USD. US$50 to US$100 of the original price goes to the primary kidnappers while the rest of the income goes to the traffickers who bring the bride to the main client.[6]


Bride-buying in North Korea is most common due to the great poverty the country suffers and the citizens taking many risks to leave the country.[14] Human traffickers take this as an opportunity to traffic desperate North Korean women across the country borders to China not often to sell as slaves, but mainly as brides. Upon arrival and wedlock, the women are said to be forced into labor, or sexual and physical abuse by their Chinese husbands.[15] Although, there are successful marriages, they hardly ever last because of the illegality of North Korean citizens crossing the border without authorization, despite the women having been in the country for many years neither them or their offspring are granted citizenship.[14][15] As a result, they are arrested and sent back to their homeland or kept in China to face the consequences of trespassing.[15] Institutions around the world are requesting China to give refuge to the great number of people who fled North Korea seeking shelter, however the solicitation has not yet been approved of.[14] In South Korea, bride-buying is not as common as it is in North Korea, though it still exists in varied ways. The majority of the brides bought in South Korea are from different parts of Asia, largely from the southeast side, in addition bride buying internationally in South Korea is claimed to be encouraged as a result of the population declining.[16]


Bride-buying in Vietnam has progressed illicitly, becoming the most debauched commercialized industry in recent history, especially around the northern mountain provinces bordering China.[17] Virgin Vietnamese women, from 18 to 25 years old particularly, are targeted by several third-parties known as the quickie matchmaking agencies for East and Southeast Asian men from South Korea, Taiwan, China, Malaysia and Singapore.[18][19] Virginity is considered the most valuable trait in this business as virgin Vietnamese women are often purchased at a higher price point.[20] The price ranges differ among agencies; packages are valued between $5000[20] and $22,000USD[18] which includes a wedding, a visa, a health examination test, and a language course.[20] According to surveys conducted in Korea, 65% of the Vietnamese respondents only completed primary or lower secondary school.[21] This lack of education can explain the poor social knowledge that allows this industry to grow.[21] Vietnamese women prostitute themselves to foreigners. By selling sex for visas they are introduced to new duties which include labor and domestic servitude.[22] The aforementioned quickie agencies usually group three to five men together to search for Vietnamese wives. This grouping of potential customers generates more profit, saving the organization approximately 50 to 60% in fees estimated to be around $85,000USD per trip.[21]


One thing many individuals in Africa disagree on is bride-buying. In Africa, bride-buying tends to work out against women's best interest, causing many to feel a sense of gender inequality as well as a lack in the women's rights sector.[23] In East Africa, some marriages involve transfer of valuable properties that are delivered from the families of the groom and gifted to the families of the bride. Certain phrases like bride-pricing, dowry, bride-wealth, and some indigenous words: "lobolo", "mala", "bogadi", and "chiko" all make up different codes of bride purchases.[24]


Did you live at U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune or Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) in North Carolina with an active-duty Veteran who was your spouse or parent? If you lived in either of these places for at least 30 cumulative days from August 1953 through December 1987, you may have had contact with contaminants in the drinking water there. Scientific and medical evidence has shown an association between exposure to these contaminants and the development of certain diseases later on. If you now have one of the related conditions, you may qualify for health care benefits through VA.


Back in 2007, when I was working to support the health and welfare of migrant brides from Vietnam, an acquaintance sent a photograph he had taken while visiting Ho Chi Minh City's District 5. It was of a poster advertising a marriage broker's services, and its bulleted text read: "She is a virgin, she will be yours in only three months, fixed price, if she escapes in the first year, guaranteed to be replaced."


A little reverse-image-search sleuthing later... the composite ad appears to be a fake photomontage cobbled together by various bloggers, but the Chinese text appears to be from a genuine photograph of a genuine ad.


This is the first question a Vietnamese woman asks Marcus* in his hotel lobby, during an event organised by his matchmaking agency. He has flown in from Singapore just the night before, and this is the first meetup in a week-long endeavour.


All my visits to True Love Vietnam Bride Matchmaker take me back in time. The office sits on the second floor of the desolate Orchard Plaza, built in the 80s. Apart from a few tailors, beauty stores, and convenience marts, large swathes of the mall have been left unoccupied. 041b061a72
