married a mail order bride.
reason I am asking, on Saturday night whilst out with my wife, son and his girlfriend, I bumped into a lad I used to knock about with 30 yrs ago.
he is 53 now, and was telling me that he had been married twice in the past, both marriages ended pretty quickly and badly.
2 yrs ago his dad, who has lived with him all the time, passed away leaving him a fair amount of cash.
so, in his words....he bought himself a tong bride.
I asked him if he was serious, he said yes, he had approached a agency, who pretty much offered him a catalogue with a load of different women in it.
he choose the one he liked, went to Thailand for a 3 week holiday to meet her, and he says, is now happily married to her.
the lady is pretty stunning too, with a very nice figure to match.
I am not easily lost for words or easily shocked....but I was.
I never realised things like this were possible.
they seemed happy enough, so good luck to him.
