I'm curious to glance at a sample of viewpoints regarding overseas marriage. *As a side note, these kinds of marriages have a much higher success rate than traditional meet and greet romance marriages*
Suppose it's a male citizen from a 1st world country marrying a woman from a 3rd world country.
-How do you feel about these kinds of arrangements in general?
-Do you look at the man any differently? If so, how?
-Any other thoughts or views on this relationship or the people involved?
Suppose it's a female citizen from a 1st world country marrying a man from a 3rd world country (MUCH less common).
-Any thoughts or views on this relationship or the people involved?
Please discuss. I'm curious about your views. Why do you think these marriages are more likely to succeed in the long run?
The reason this question came up in my head is because I know somebody that did this. I don't actually know him all that well as he was a co-worker of my dad's. He's an IT guy, decent looking, and according to my dad he didn't seem to have a problem attracting women.
In this guys case, he chose to marry somebody over-seas partially because he read about them and saw the statistics himself.
His marriage, from what I can tell, has ended up working extremely well. They both love each-other very much. You can tell just by looking at them. They've been together for years.
Some folks threw hate in his direction feeling like he was taking advantage. This always struck me as curious, because honestly I still don't really understand this mentality. I think he did her a favor. He's really good to her.

Wether it's a man or a woman I would always feel the one from the first world was taking advantage of the other. If you look at those couples it's usually an old man with ya pretty young woman or an old woman with a handsome young man. And about the partners I would think they are only in for money and visa
And more often than not, that is an accurate view. Love marriages are rather rare under those circumstances.
Of course they last longer for obvious reasons.
I generally wouldn't oppose overseas marriage as long as both partners are roughly on the same level. Like if you're an American man marrying a European, wealthy Asian or south American woman around your age, I would think it's barley different from marrying an American woman.
But with some people, I'm sure you will agree it's hard to believe those people are actually in love with each other and instead are exploitng each other
