You'd be surprised at how some foreign women snag American husbands.

I don't give a patootie for who marries whom. BUT, that excerpt does NOT sound like anything that would be on the U.S. Citizen and Immigration homepage like it claims.

And the statistics seem skewed if 100 people married in 2011 and 50 divorced that is not a 50% divorce rate - some of those divorces could be from marriages over the last 25 years.

That is entirely dependent on where they came from. Not everyone thinks America is the be all end all of countries.

People here want to generalize that the foreign women some American men marry are poor, uneducated, need support, are subservient, ect. America and American women are not the end all be all.

The reason to prefer foreign women over American women is bc those women, whether they're in France, Germany, Malta, Asia and so forth, dont grow up in the cultural mess that has come to symbolize American youth. Our culture for young people & adults promotes and glorifies some of the worst behavior.

Don't get me wrong. There are wonderful American women and every foreign woman isn't good. But in most cases, I'll take my chances with an European woman.

What cracks me up is that the men who blather on about foreign women usually don't have the nads to go live in the countries where those women come from.

It's a big, beautiful world. If you like European or Asian cultures so much, you are free to go live in Europe or Asia. No one is stopping you.

I've had some friends who have grown up in Germany and watch some reports out of Europe. Trust me it is all the same.

Didn't you hear? Other countries have no violence, sex trades, pop culture, mind numbingly asinine reality shows, poor fashion, just culture and better relationships between the genders.
