There are at least two historical roots of the mail-order bride industry that emerged in the 1800s in the American frontier: Asian workers in the frontier regions (although Asian workers were scattered throughout the world), and American men who had headed west across the United States to work out on the frontier.
European American men found financial success in the migration West, but the one thing that was missing was the company of a wife.
The majority of the women listed in the twentieth-century and twenty-first-century services are from Southeast Asia, countries of the former Eastern Bloc and (to a lesser extent) from Latin America.
Experian, a market research firm, reports that the top 10 international dating sites attracted 12 million visitors in March 2013, up 29% from March 2012.Asian men also worked through mail-order agencies to find wives as they worked overseas in the 1800s.Key variables determining the relationship between migration and marriage were demographics, legal policies, cultural perceptions and technology.However, many consider the term "mail-order bride" derogatory and feel it demeans foreign women by comparing them to commodities for sale and by falsely implying that (unlike local women), they exercise no judgment over the men they meet and would marry anyone from a relatively wealthy country.Few agencies still offer introductions and excursions, but pioneering marriage agency A Foreign Affair still conducts these services.
