Thousands of American men can be found online railing against feminism and the modern American woman. Their chief complaints: (1) Western women have no concept of how to treat a man; (2) feminism has destroyed men and the family; and (3) Western women don't know what it takes to be a "real" wife. Their suggested solution is that men look for a wife in Asia, Russia, Africa or South America.

Who are these men? Are they social misfits that can't handle a woman that demands consideration and a balance of power in the relationship? Are they broke so women consider them poor husband material? Or could it be that these are professional, wealthy, educated men that want a wife that won't challenge them in any way and just augment their existence?

Most of the foreign bride websites and catalogs emphasize how these women have strong family values, and know how to make a man "feel like a king." It appears that a great many men long for that kind of acknowledgement and a return to "the old days" when men were revered and served by women.

A recent Today Show poll asked about "femininity" and whether it was tied to traits like being soft, receptive to men's ideas and lead, and submissive." The majority of the Today Show audience said yes - 56%.  About 25% felt the answer was somewhere in the middle, and only 19% disagreed.

Does this mean Western women are not viewed as "feminine" by the majority of men? Could this be why our marriage rate is declining?

Join us to discuss the pros and cons of the foreign bride market and what it means for American women. Call 347-327-9215 to share your thoughts!
