[quote=Madaglan]Hey, I’m just wondering what the Catholic Church thinks about those Russian Bride services. I’m not talking about the ones in which you get a mail-order bride, but the ones in which the women supposedly are looking for men in Western Europe or America for a better life.
I’ve looked at some of the pages, and a lot of them seem very well educated. I just wonder if they are as sweet in personality as they look. I’ve heard that they’re different from Western women. Many of them are Orthodox, too, so they’re not really a whole lot different in outward appearance from Roman Catholics. What do you think? Would it be wrong for a guy to get a bride through one of these services? :love:
I first thought your post was a joke, but I’m starting to feel, in horror, that it’s not.
Mag-you don’t “get” a bride. And your last paragraph sounds like you’re talking about puppies or something.
You’ve shared that you’re lonely and would really like a girlfriend, but please don’t fall in desperation for the scam-ridden and red-tape legal nightmare (and false promises) of a mail-order agency just because you’re feeling a little desperate. And yes, what you describe is a mail-order agency; they’re just marketed in slightly more PC terms these days.
Do you really think a life-long sacramental partner can be picked out of a glossy magazine like a tube of toothpaste?
