BUT, i have known of enough horror stories about these foreign brides. One of my distant relative (a hawker) married a FB. Initially she helped out in the business and really worked hard like her husband would day in day out.
After she got her PR, she started dressing up like a slut, going drinking at night, sleeping with men outside and asked for a divorce within 3mth (fr date of her PR issuance). She bore a child for him and said the kid will be the divorce gift for him. She will remarry as a PR. My relative was in a complete fits as he was shocked on the wild girl he just married. She probably was a pub girl and her virginity was skillfully done up by plastic surgeons.
Forget morals. You dont even know who you are marrying. No courtship, no truthful background details and no love. Dont expect a lasting marriage.
Maybe my experience is skewed by my previous ABC gfs lol.
But yes i have to agree that the issue of moving from one country to another is often a problem.
N I am not married yet ! FAR too young. Still playing the fields .
I wanna move to brazil and settle down there! Anybody knows any way to get there?

i'm not a local but i'm not ang moh either. filipino-chinese is my background, grew up in the phil, australia and sg.
during my time in sg, i met and eventually married a local girl. she, just like everyone else, had materialistic dreams, e.g. cash, car, condo, etc. (who doesn't) i on the other hand, being a foreigner, didn't have any of those things. i was happy working, living in HDB, taking public transport, etc.
she had other suitors richer than me, had more education and ambition than me, were more physically attractive than me, but she chose me. i've often asked her why she selected me over the others and you know what she said... 'Because you make me laugh.'
i mean, heck... the others must have made her laugh too, but she said i made her really laugh and made her laugh everyday.
so there you have it, all they really want is some clown to make them laugh.
