Why do so many people assume when a woman marries an American man it's for citizenship?

I don't know but im Hopping the pond and supporting myself (independantly) to prove a point to my family who will more likely than not assume it when i decide to tell them. In fact when they offer to help me after having accused such or at least thought it ill respectfully tell them im appreciate it but plan to support myself. For at least five years till till i can't get citizenship. Rather than sponge off them or let alone good dig to get married🙄. The assumptionstions are extremely annoying but i guess you just have to deal with them and make your own decisions accordingly.0

I don't stereotype them or make any assumptions about them. But on the other hand I know it's pretty common for women form some countries to marry western guys to get a green card (or whatever the equivalent is in other countries). Getting a green card is different than being a gold digger though. Some of them will marry just about anyone to get a green card, even if the guy is dirt poor.
It's common enough that I think any guy who plans on marrying someone from one of those countries at least should consider that she only wants a green card. A lot of guys won't care.0
