How else can a blue collar local man earning $1300 a month find a female companion to start a family? If the man belongs to this demographic, it is nearly impossible to find a local lady willing to accept him.

For the Vietnamese lady, she got herself out of poverty. As along as she is aware of her rights, she is well protected by Singapore’s Women’s Charter. We don’t have to worry for her.

Given time, such marriages can work. The stigma of “buying” a wife is what threatens to ruin this marriage.

Behind this foggy area, its nothing more then medieval slave-trading for me…sorry, but living in the 21st century, there shouldnt exist anything near to “selling human beings” any more in my opinion.

KM: Are you sure foreign women are so well-protected in Singapore? Wasn’t there news not long ago about a foreign bride who got stuck in Singapore because a loser Singaporean man who bought her decided to sleep with her for one night and then “refunded” her by dumping her at the bride agency?

Women are the vulnerable ones because of patriarchy.. they are bought and sold like objects all over the world. Especially in an Asian country like Singapore where political figures clearly stated is a patriarchal one and unabashedly so.
