One of the main attractions of international marriage for many men is the undeniable attraction of marrying a younger woman.

This attraction for younger women at the height of their child bearing potential is obviously hardwired into men.

And some, perhaps even most, of the blame for those failures was yours. Be honest with yourself and try to grow as a person.

First, are you interested in a particular young lady or younger ladies in particular?

If there is a growing mutual attraction between you and a particular younger woman, regardless of a large age difference, that is probably a good thing.

She may be facing awful economic and social conditions, but it still takes courage, vision, and a sense of hopefulness for a foreign woman to make the choice to sign up with a global dating agency.

So, choose an area of the world based on what seems interesting to you for your international marriage and perhaps on your experience with immigrants from the area, but don't simply accept the old stereotypes.

However, modern Japan and the Japan of a hundred and fifty years ago is wildly different and you should not expect to meet Madame Butterfly when you visit Tokyo today.

You really have to track very far off the beaten path to find foreign girls who are not a part of the broader world culture on some level.

You can find a Russian woman who is totally submissive and there are Filipina's who are pushy type A women.

Whatever grain of truth existed in the national stereotypes has changed, because the countries where most of the mail order brides today come from have under gone enormous social, political, and economic change in the last twenty-five years.

Russian ladies that grew up in the last dreary days of the crumbling Soviet Union had vastly different life experience than young Russian bride who grew up with the internet in a more or less free society.
