Measure of this ‘Measure’ is laughter
“Measure for Measure” is a problem play about a decadent world in which flawed characters behave badly. The play’s twin poles are sexual obsession and justice. Directors often drape it in their darkest devices.

What do you guys think about “mail-order” brides or latin brides?

Well, I think “mail order bride” is a defunct term now. It’s more about international dating nowadays. Lots of couples from different countries meet and marry. I know many international dating sites where many us males find their latin love. You can see it there and choose that you like more – http://dating-overview.com/content/blogcategory/52/66/

Japanese Brides

If you want to meet Japanese women, don’t be a “mama’s boy”

Do some men really want a woman who reminds them of their mother?

You know the type: “Mama’s boys” – the spoiled, pampered men who cannot seem to break away from their mothers. Don’t get me wrong, mothers are great – mine sure is – but there comes a point in your life when you have to grow up.

Yet some Japanese men seem destined to be “Mama’s boys” for life. And why would they ever want to change?After all, for these men, their mothers have cooked their food, done their laundry, cleaned their rooms, and basically done everything for them their whole life. Who would want to give that up? So instead of growing up and learning to take care of themselves without Mom, they simply look for a woman who will do the same kinds of things for them.

A friend of mine who was in a relationship with one of these mama’s boys saw the relationship end because her man’s mom did not think she (my friend) would make a proper wife, and since his mom did not approve, that was the end of the relationship. How crazy is that?

Think of all the good women out there who are passed over because the man’s mom does not approve of her for some reason. Sometimes the man will never get married because his mom does not want to let them go, or because she thinks that no woman will ever be good enough for her precious son. So the man spends his life alone and in misery while his mom stays happy (and in control of his life). Men should always honor their mothers, but you shouldn’t sacrifice your entire life just to make your mother happy.

After all, what kind of mother would want her son to give up his entire life and turn his back on romance, just because a woman does not meet up with her requirements? This is a selfish way for a mother to behave – if mothers really love their sons, they will raise them to be strong, independent, and able to build a life with a good woman. Instead of trying to rule and control her son’s romantic life, a mother should teach her son how to treat a woman properly so that he can go on to lead a productive and happy life.

Yet some mothers have programmed their sons to the point that these poor men spend their entire life looking for a woman just like dear old Mom.

Here is a news flash, mama’s boys: there is no other woman on Earth who is going to be just like your mother. If you want to have a real relationship with a woman – especially an independent, emotionally healthy woman – you need to let go of your maternal ties and find a way to stand on your own.

Don’t you think it is kind of weird to want a woman like your mother anyway? I mean, imagine having sex with your mother! Not a pleasant thought. So why do you keep looking for a woman like your mother? Do you not want a woman who is her own person? After all, any good woman is going to run as far away from you as she can get if you keep comparing her to your mother.

Being a mama’s boy might seem cute to a woman at first, but before long, any good woman is going to want a real man. Of course you want your mother and your wife to get along, but when you get married you need to always take the side of your wife, even to the point of defending her against your mother, if necessary. If you are not ready to let go of your mother and be a real man, then you probably are not ready for dating a real woman either.

<!–more–>

Some men who marry Japanese women – whether they’re “Mama’s boys” or not – might find that their mothers have concerns about whether the Japanese woman is going to “fit in” culturally with the rest of the family. For example, Japanese women might marry Indian men, Muslim men, African-American men, Jewish men – and sometimes parents from all of these cultures have their particular concerns about intermarriage. I’ve had some male Jewish friends who havemarried Japanese women, and it’s always interesting to me how often they’ve been able to persuade their Japanese brides to convert to Judaism – even though Japanese women are somewhat non-religious. (I think the men’s mothers might have something to do with influencing these Japanese women’s decisions.)

Bottom line: no matter what culture you’re from or how intense of a “Mama’s boy” you are, when it comes time for you to find a woman (or many women!) to spend your life with, you need to do what is right for you. Ultimately, your mother will be happy for you. Have you known any “Mama’s boys” among your circle of male friends? Why do you think Japanese culture develops so many “Mama’s boys?”

Thailand Bride

Travel to Thailand and experience Marriage, friendship, dating in thailand

Thai marriage ceremonies between Buddhists are generally divided into two parts: a Buddhist component, which includes the recitation of prayers and the offering of food and other gifts to monks and images of the Buddha, and a non-Buddhist component rooted in folk traditions, which centers on the couple’s family.

In former times, it was unknown for Buddhist monks to be present at any stage of the marriage ceremony itself. As monks were required to attend to the dead during funerals, their presence at a marriage (which was associated with fertility, and intended to produce children) was considered a bad omen. A couple would seek a blessing from their local temple before or after being married, and might consult a monk for astrological advice in setting an auspicious date for the wedding. The non-Buddhist portions of the wedding would take place away from the temple, and would often take place on a separate day.

In modern times, these prohibitions have been significantly relaxed. It is not uncommon for a visit to a temple to be made on the same day as the non-Buddhist portions of a wedding, or even for the wedding to take place within the temple. While a division is still commonly observed between the “religious” and “secular” portions of a wedding service, it may be as simple as the monks present for the Buddhist ceremony departing to take lunch once their role is complete.

During the Buddhist component of the wedding service, the couple first bow before the image of the Buddha. They then recite certain basic Buddhist prayers or chants (typically including taking the Three Refuges and the Five Precepts), and light incense and candles before the image. The parents of the couple may then be called upon to ‘connect’ them, by placing upon the heads of the bride and groom twin loops of string or thread that link the couple together. The couple may then make offerings of food, flowers, and medicine to the monks present. Cash gifts (usually placed in an envelope) may also be presented to the temple at this time.

The monks may then unwind a small length of thread that is held between the hands of the assembled monks. They begin a series of recitations of Pali scriptures intended to bring merit and blessings to the new couple. The string terminates with the lead monk, who may connect it to a container of water that will be ‘sanctified’ for the ceremony. Merit is said to travel through the string and be conveyed to the water; a similar arrangement is used to transfer merit to the dead at a funeral, further evidence of the weakening of the taboo on mixing funerary imagery and trappings with marriage ceremonies. Blessed water may be mixed with wax drippings from a candle lit before the Buddha image and other unguents and herbs to create a ‘paste’ that is then applied to the foreheads of the bride and groom to create a small ‘dot’, similar to the marking sometimes made with red ochre on Hindu devotees. The bride’s mark is created with the butt end of the candle rather than the monk’s thumb, in keeping with the Vinaya prohibition against touching women.

The highest-ranking monk present may elect to say a few words to the couple, offering advice or encouragement. The couple may then make offerings of food to the monks, at which point the Buddhist portion of the ceremony is concluded.

The Thai dowry system is known as the ‘Sin Sodt’. Traditionally, the groom will be expected to pay a sum of money to the family, to compensate them and to demonstrate that the groom is financially capable of taking care of their daughter. Sometimes, this sum is purely symbolic, and will be returned to the bride and groom after the wedding has taken place.

The religious component of marriage ceremonies between Thai Muslims are markedly different from that described above. The Imam of the local mosque, the groom, the father of the bride, men in the immediate family and important men in the community sit in a circle during the ceremony, conducted by the Imam. All the women, including the bride, sit in a separate room and do not have any direct participation in the ceremony. The secular component of the ceremony, however, is often nearly identical to the secular part of Thai Buddhist wedding ceremonies. The only notable difference here is the type of meat served to guests (goat and/or beef instead of pork). Thai Muslims frequently, though not always, also follow the conventions of the Thai dowry system.

Living Dead Dolls – china limbs guard – medical bellyband manufacturer

Origins The first Living Dead Dolls appeared for sale in America in 1998. They were craft dolls individually customised by either Ed Long or Damien Glonek. These customised dolls are called “handmades” by fans and collectors. The first doll was made by Long using one of his mother’s doll kits. He showed the doll to Glonek, and they worked together to make 12 more. After the dolls sold out immediately, Long & Glonek decided to make more for sale. These original handmade dolls were sold exclusively through Glonek’s horror memorabilia mail order company Unearthly Possessions, as well as at horror conventions along the East Coast. It was at one of these conventions, Chiller Theatre, that Mike “Mez” Markowitz, the founder of Mezco Toyz purchased one of the dolls. Mezco subsequently contacted Long and Glonek about manufacturing and distributing the dolls commercially. The first commercial series of Living Dead Dolls, Series 1, was released early in 2001. Since then, new series have been released roughly twice a year. Handmades Handmades(1998-2001) These customised craft dolls were individually created by Ed Long and/or Damien Glonek. The original handmade dolls did not have names, but can be identified by their design and costuming. The following dolls can be linked to dolls which were put into mainstream production: Sadie: A black-haired girl doll in a black dress with a white collar, very like Wednesday Addams.

The handmade Sadie is perhaps the most commonly seen handmade. Posey: A long-haired, usually blonde, girl doll in a long nightgown. Sin: Superficially similar to Sadie, but with a red dress, devil horns and a tail. Bad Habit: A doll dressed as a nun. Eggzorcist: A doll wearing a bunny suit. She was first made as a gift to Ed Long’s then girlfriend, who returned the doll when the relationship broke up. These early handmade dolls have not been made as mainstream Living Dead Dolls as of January 2009: Unnamed witch doll: A doll dressed as a witch, with a pointed hat. Tall Lady: Some handmades used a taller, more adult-figured craft doll. Due to their height, these dolls are called Tall Ladies by collectors. Candy Rotten: The only handmade to have a name, this was a punk doll with a burning heart tattooed on her chest and candyfloss-coloured hair. Handmades (post-2001) After the dolls went into production, it was possible to request custom handmades directly from the creators. These custom handmades originally cost $666 apiece, later increased to $800. A custom handmade was the prize available to anyone who opened one of the five Series 5 blood-spattered chase dolls. In about 2004, Long & Glonek announced on the Mezco message boards that they would no longer accept commissions or make handmades to order, but would instead occasionally offer handmade dolls on eBay to the highest bidder. Living Dead Dolls Living Dead Dolls are 10″ (28cm) tall plastic dolls which are sold in coffin-shaped boxes. Most of the main series dolls come with a death certificate, except for the showbiz-themed Series 5, which had coroner’s reports. The death-date on the certificate is typically that of a significant historical event, or somebody’s birth or death. There is also a short poem about each doll printed on the coffin packaging and/or the death certificate. Series 1 (March 2001) Sadie Sin Posey Eggzorcist Damien Series one was first released in the USA, then later in Japan. There are two differences between these releases. The Japan dolls have a large white Japanese sticker on the bottom of their coffins and they also have holes in their hands just like the later series. However, they sell for the exact same amount and people hardly ever speak of the differences. Limited to about 35000 sets. Series 2 (October 2001) School Time Sadie Kitty Deadbra Ann Lizzie Borden Lou Sapphire Lizzie Borden is the first doll to be explicitly based on a real person, in this case Lizzie Borden. While many of the dolls may appear inspired by specific individuals, only three in the main line are explicitly based on real people. See also Dahlia (series 5) and Bathory (series 15). Limited to about 40000 sets Series 3 (March 2002) Bride of Valentine Sheena Lilith Lottie Schitzo Series 4 (September 2002) Inferno Sybil Lulu Ms Eerie Macumba Series 5 (March 2003) Jezebel Siren Dahlia Hollywood Vincent Vaude Dahlia is the second doll from the main line to be explicitly based on a real person, in this case Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia victim. To commemorate Series 5, a chase doll in a closed-casket version was randomly inserted into factory-sealed cases. This contained one of the regular Series 5 dolls in a black-and-white colorway. Unless the casket was opened, the doll it held was a mystery. One of each chase doll was blood-spattered. This was a golden ticket that won the finder a free handmade doll. A limited edition of 500 sets of sealed open-casket versions was made available only to members of Mezco’s online club. Series 666 (2003) Jinx Dottie Rose Hush Revenant Calico Isaac Dottie Rose was available with or without eyebrows, in a 50:50 ratio. Each doll came with a pet. Isaac is the only doll to be stuffed. Series 7 (2004) Lust (Mistress Demonika) Vanity (Madame Dysmorphic) Wrath (Bad Bette Jane) Envy (Eve-A-Go-Go) Sloth (Bed Time Sadie) Greed (Miss McGreedy) Gluttony (Vulgar the Obscene) This series was inspired by the Seven Deadly Sins. Series 8 (2004) The Lost Hollow Grace of the Grave Faith Angus Littlrot The Lost was made in two versions. The “Black Lost” wore a black dress, and the “White Lost” wore a white dress. There were two “Black Losts” to each “White Lost.” Angus Littlrot had a sack over his head which covered one of three face variants. Series 9 (2005) Elisa Day Toxic Molly Dawn Blue Purdy Elisa Day was based on the song Where the Wild Roses Grow by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds featuring Kylie Minogue. A set of limited-edition glow-in-the-dark variants was exclusive to the Mezco Direct store. This was the first series to have a re-designed body articulation system, with ball and socket joints at shoulders, hips and neck. It is the first and only all-female series. Series 10 (2005) Mildread Demonique Arachne Tina Black Wolfgang To mark the tenth series, the lettering on the clear coffin lids was red. Series 11 (2006) Maggot Killbaby Jubilee Rain Isaiah Series 12 (2006) Chloe Tessa Frozen Charlotte Cuddles Ezekiel Series 13 (2007) Evangeline Iris Morgana Simone Jacob To mark Series 13 each doll was based on a different superstition. For example, Evangeline had a broken mirror. Series 14 (2007) Alison Crux Jasper Daisy Slae Dee K Gregory Series 15 (2008) Death Bathory Gypsy Flamingo Judas Bathory is the third doll from the main line to be explicitly based on a real person, in this case Countess Elizabeth Bthory. A set of limited-edition variants was exclusive to the Mezco Direct store. Only 300 sets were available worldwide. Series 16 (Halloween 2008) Eleanor Pumpkin Mishka Squeak Isabel This series was based on Halloween trick-or-treaters. A set of limited-edition orange-and-black variants was exclusive to the Mezco Direct store. Only 300 sets were available worldwide.

Japanese Mail Order Brides – Rare Jewels

The Internet woods are thick with mail order brides from Russia, China, and the Philippines as well as dozens of third world countries. Nevertheless many men prefer Japanese women they are thought to make the best wives in the world. But now that Japan is a developed nation, however, are mail order brides still available from Japan?

Well, yes – but not nearly in as great a number as before. Ironically, the entire mail order bride phenomenon started out decades ago with Japanese-American men would write to their families back home asking help in finding a Japanese bride (in fact, arranged marriages are not at all uncommon in Japan even today). The man’s parents would find a candidate and the two would marry despite barely knowing each other – they might even meet for the first time at the wedding. The practice of arranged marriages – marrying a bride you barely know, chosen by your parents – was the rule rather than the exception in Japan until recently. Since at that time the US was far richer than Japan, Japanese-Americans could easily find a bride from the Old Country – to marry for economic reasons only was thought quite normal. Due to the Western romantic tradition, this practice struck most Americans as rather strange, and the term “mail order bride” came into being.

These days quite a few American men are looking for a “mail order bride” from another country. There are a number of reasons for this. Although Japan is now a developed country, there are still quite a few of Japanese women promoting themselves as mail order brides on the Internet. One advantage of Japan being a developed country is that Japanese women are far less likely than women from third world nations to marry only for economic reasons – that’s right, you’re may have to win her heart before she will marry you! But hey, that should be a good sign.

The Western stereotype of Japanese women as submissive handmaidens is not necessarily true anymore, and that applies double to mail order brides. Because of the relatively low status of women in Japanese society, a lot of Japanese women seek to marry Western men because they believe them to be less authoritarian than Japanese men. Yeah, it’s also true that “traditional” Japanese women are more submissive. But traditional women rarely marry foreign men – after all, marrying a foreigner (and living overseas) is not a particularly traditional thing to do. Nevertheless, after living in Japan for several years, I speak from experience when I say that Japanese women are by and large quite caring and considerate (and some of them are LOTS of fun!). If you are looking for a foreign bride, in my opinion Japanese women are your best bet.

Benefits of Getting a Polish Wife

You’re at another wedding. As the wedding party leaves and the caterers clean up the leftover food, you marvel at the fact that your last single friend has gotten married. During the wedding, no one dares ask the obvious question, “When is it your turn?” And as you sit there thinking the very same thought, you ponder the benefits of buying a cat and naming her Wiskas.

Love and marriage in the twenty first century are still illusive for many people who are single and hating it. With the advent of Internet dating, it should be really easy to find, date, and marry as many people as you’d like. However, for most, they have not been successful because they have geographically confined their search for love. Yes, there are the stereotypical relationships that involve some American wanting a mail order bride. However, there also are real relationships that turn into marriages between people from two different countries and cultures.

First of all one common belief among American men is that foreign women know the purpose of getting married and so they try to work toward that purpose to make the marriage work. For example, one of the best-kept secrets in dating cross continentally is courting Russian and Polish women. When dating a woman from Eastern Europe (especially from Poland as most girls from Poland tend to know English well and the Western Culture is not “shocking” for them at all), you will not have to deal with the bitterness that is found in many American women, as Russian and Polish women still believe in the idea of true love. In addition to their innocence, Polish women and foreign women in general do not have hang ups about gender roles, as do many American women. So they work toward making their husbands and the marriage happy.

Another benefit to marrying or dating a woman from a different country is that it will turn you into a more generous person. Only in the United States is there this desire to work toward individual happiness and wealth. Using women form Eastern Europe again as an example, many of them are reliable and generous of heart. Their society teaches them to think about the community rather than just themselves. This trait is very beneficial in finding a suitable marriage partner. If you date and marry a woman from Poland, then you definitely won’t have to worry about your wife’s selfishness because they are very loving and giving women. For instance, James* met Agnieszka through an online website that matches American men with Polish women.

According to James, “It’s been the best decision I have made in my entire life because she is so giving to me and my daughters.” And Agnieszka is happy too. She says she loves that James treats her like a Queen. The couple’s plans include a wedding later this summer.

Conversely, like anything in life, you must be careful before entering long-term relationships with women from different countries. One common stereotype that still rings true, unfortunately, is that future wives from foreign countries will use men to gain citizenship. But this problem is no different than when you date an American woman who may be using you for money. Simply taking the time to get to know the woman that you would like to marry easily solves this problem. David* said he was a little nervous about committing to Agnieszka because he had heard horror stories of being left only a few weeks of marriage.

David says, “Once I got to know Agnieszka, I knew that she intended to be with me for life. It wasn’t an act. She really loved me, and it showed in her actions toward me. In the end, she become my Polish wife.”

David said he learned that when men are used in this way it is because they have been physically abusive to his wife, and happened a lot more in the mail order business where women are overwhelmingly abused. He further distinguishes between the two ways of meeting a wife. Mail order wives never meet their husbands other than the one time. The husbands do not view them in any other way but as a housewife and a sexual partner. This is not wise, according to David.

“You leave yourself open to being taken advantage of by the mere fact that you know very little about the person you will marry,” David adds. “Incidentally, American women are just as likely to take advantage in some way–you have to be careful either way.”

Another problem that may interfere in the relationship is cultural differences. However, David says that cultural differences really become minimized and once you realize that you love that person so much you work through those differences.

“When you court a woman from a different country, the experience can be mind blowing-at least was for me,” David continues. He and Agnieszka have been married 20 years and have four grown children.

All in all, the benefits outweigh the dangers in choosing a wife from another country. If you choose to date someone from another country, you open yourself up to learning to give and receive love, and you also will have a dependable wife and mother. The dangers in dating someone from another country (from Poland in this case) are the same dangers that face you when dating someone online or someone you meet at a club or bar. These dangers can be avoided by spending quality time with the woman and getting to know her. Are you still nervous? Well, your other alternative is a cat, endless days of kitty litter, and countless other weddings where you wonder, “When is it my turn?”

Marriage Advice:

How can I get the people I work with to stop annoying my wife when she comes to where I work?

I work in an office and pretty much hate my job but it pays well so I shouldn’t complain. The thing is whenever my wife comes into work the people in my office tease her. She’s pregnant and they call her fat. She’s Polish and she gets called ‘Cheap Labour’, ‘Mail Order Bride’ and they laugh when she speaks Polish to out two year old daughter. When I arrive at work 4 mornings out of 5 I’ve had forms for mail order brides stuck to my computer or been signed up to a mail order website or given the immigration phone know to as they put it ‘have my illegal citizen wife deported’. One of the women has bitten my daughter because her three year old bite my daughter when we could bring our kids to work and my daughter bit her back but not as hard (she never left any marks it was just a very gentle bite even though I told her off for it she was still bitten by a grown woman)

It’s doing my head it and really upsetting her and my daughter.

This is simple bullying and harassment. Report these b’stards to everyone you can. They are vermin and deserve nothing less.

Foreign Bride Questions:

Are Mail Order Brides backing everyone else up?

I’m not being racist against Americans (I myself am American) but just an honest question. If there weren’t so many dirty old rich American men that bought their brides off the internet, so they could get a young hot chick to bang whenever they want and the occasional affection and company a woman can give a man with a fake smile planted on their face, who cringe every time they have to kiss him… Do you think us people who are genuinely in love with our partners and long to be with them, do you think the wait would be quite as long? Would get decisions a lot quicker????? Quite honestly, people who ‘order’ their brides off the internet make me sick!
PS I’m all for online relationships, that’s how I met my fiance, but to have the intention to pick a foreign girl based on her looks, then pay for her ticket, her citizenship and her knockers, is wrong wrong wrong!!!!
Odd how all the guys answered are sticking up for mail order brides…..Hmmmm says a lot!

hah i like how its all guys who have answered this question.. and they all seem to agree. wierd…. but yes i agree with you. it makes me sick as well.

Before you begin developing connections with these beautiful Russian women, you may wonder about the outcome. 

Is this all just fun and games? Is a real marriage with a mail order bride actually possible? 

It is real and it is definitely possible. Here’s why a relationship with a hot Russian bride will last. 

Your Investment

When you are investing your time and your money into an online dating site, you are obviously serious about finding your soul mate. In addition, since most Russian women are ready for marriage and eager to start a family at a young age, they are very serious about this search as well. Being this committed to your goal definately helps insure success. 

Her Sacrifice

Men are quick to think that Russian women are eager to marry abroad to escape their country. A home is a home. Russian women are very proud of their country and their culture. There are actually many things that she gives up when she moves away. She could be leaving behind her family, friends, and career, all of which she will miss terribly when moving to another country. But these are the sacrifices that she is willing to make in order to find true love and happiness. 

Your Differences

Going into this unique matchmaking experience you already know there will be differences. Your Russian bride may not speak your language, or may not understand your culture. These challenges are the things that will make your love grow stronger.

After considering all of these things that factor into an online romance with a Russian mail order bride, you can see that this is a life changing experience. Sure, online dating is fun and exciting, but there is serious goal in the end. You can have a lasting, successful marriage with a Russian bride!

Mail Order Brides Aren’t What They Used To Be

If you are like me, when you think of mail order brides you think of something like this:

A man picks up a cataloged at the local hardware store and thumbs through a few pages. Having found an article of great interest entitled “How to soup up you lawn mower in three easy steps” he stealthily slips the free publication into the bag with his purchase and drives home.

A few hours later he finds time to read the much anticipated article. After consuming the information with sponge-like interest, he sifts through the rest of the cataloged ready to catch the latest info. He finally gets to the small adds on the last few pages and notices something different. An add for “Mail order brides”. Being a single man some 6 months now, he thinks to himself ” Hey! Why don’t I just order a wife!”. So he dials the 800 number listed and goes through the usual questionnaire: Age? Height? Race? …etc. Then places the order on his credit card ( a whopping $7,457.99  USD, plus air fair). He then meets his mail order bride at the airport and drives her home. Because she is made to order, they live happily ever after. Badda-bing, Badda-boom. Done.

Well … not really.

This may come as a shock to some of you, but today’s mail order bride comes in a slightly different package. The modern mail order bride places herself on display for the purpose of true love and matrimony. It is known, for instance, that Southeast Asian men are perceived by their female counterparts as being unfaithful. Besides, in today’s society, we meet our mail order brides the old fashioned way – online! That’s right! You get to meet her face to face, have several meetings, talk a lot and really get to know one another. You find out each others interests, likes, dislikes; not to mention all around general impression. Then if you both feel that twinge of excitement, you can meet for real and already feel that you know the person. Its great!

In contrast to the wild west tales of American lore where the miner orders his mail order bride from a hardware store catalogue, the modern way is much better thanks to the internet. So, I think its fair to say that Mail Order Brides aren’t what they used to be.
