Find out a little more about the mail order bride phenomenon.
I am sure most of us have heard the term mail order brides being used frequently, especially if you are a regular online dating user. This term – mail order bride is very commonly used by internet dating services that feature women, mostly from developing countries seeking men (usually foreign men) for marriage. You can find Asian mail order brides, African mail order brides, Latin mail order brides, and the focus of this article today… Japanese mail order brides.
Here at JapanCupid.com we do not provide any Japanese women as Japanese mail order brides, neither do we refer to our Japanese dating site as a place to find and meet Japanese mail order brides. We simply put single Japanese women and men in contact with other Japanese singles or foreign singles that share similar goals….if this goal happens to be marriage, then we have plenty of marriage minded Japanese singles looking to find a fulfilling relationship, that could lead to marriage.
Japanese mail order bride is a label applied to a single Japanese woman who lists herself in a catalog or a marriage agency that publishes her main intent…to marry a foreign man. However the common misconceptions surrounding this term are that the women are uneducated, opportunistic gold diggers looking for a quick way out of their lives. This could not be further from the truth. All single women be they Japanese women or not, are looking for a life partner who will be able to provide for their future family both emotionally and economically. Labeling Japanese women looking for marriage partners as money hungry mail order brides is completely unfair as all women (and even men) strive to find a life partner who will be able to provide for them in the future.
Japanese women are brought up with a strong sense of family values and you will find that many of them are keen to get married and start a family. This strong sense of family values has seen a large increase in the number of single Japanese women signing up with Japanese marriage agencies and listing themselves as 'Japanese mail order brides' with the main intent of finding a man for marriage. In addition to this because the Japanese women at these marriage agencies have the ultimate goal of marriage usually to a foreign man, they are immediately labeled as Japanese mail order brides when they are simply trying to broaden their dating choices.
The belief is that by signing up with a Japanese marriage agency or a mail order bride service, you will soon be expecting a Japanese woman at your door ready to walk down the aisle and be the mother of your children. Well, not anymore! With the term mail order bride losing its popularity as many women; ( Japanese women included) find it to be derogatory and demeaning, the Japanese mail order bride services are slowly decreasing and being replaced with online Japanese dating services.
Unlike mail order bride services, Japanese dating services (such as JapanCupid.com) simply provide a platform that allows for introductions, facilitates communication and helps to link single Japanese women with partners that share the same goals. The term Japanese mail order brides and Japanese marriage agencies will soon be a thing of the past, as more Japanese women start using Japanese online dating services to find love. These dating services offer an environment where labels such as mail order brides are not applied to them, and they can simply be viewed as single women hoping to meet their true love.
Let us not look at single Japanese women using online dating services to meet men as opportunistic Japanese mail order brides, but instead look at them as hopeless romantics using every avenue possible to find the true loves of their lives.
