The Truth About Mail Order Brides - Featured Article
The term Mail Order Bride originated on the American frontier in the 19th century. At that time, the number of men on the frontier far outnumbered the number of available women, so lonely farmers or ranchers would seek wives from far-off locations, even other continents, by placing ads in newspapers and magazines. Interested women would write back and send photographs. The couple did not usually meet in person until the woman arrived for the wedding.
