Marriage slot machin / Society form poster

Marriage slot machin

Along with the unevenly-distributed gender proportion trends, the problem that men of marriageable age being unable to find companion is becoming more and more serious. In order to have children look after them in the future, they invented a product: foreign brides. This is popular in countries like Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, since they’re unable to find mates in their own countries, they pay money to trade wives from countries in poverty, mostly from Southeast Asia.

The exchange between money and marriage is gradually growing its popularity. Just like the way of using a slot machine, products are always inexpensive and readily available.
