I almost had to save this one...

Where can you meet a...Faithful lover, a Lifetime companion & a Best friend?
You can choose from thousands of women at www.getawife.net. Browse their pictures and read about their personalities. Pic the one that's right for you. Real women for real men.
Over 20,000 women, hand selected for you. Search our extensive database!
Don't settle for anything less!
We were the first Romance Tour Company on the Internet and remain the largest and most established, with over 20 years of combined experience in International Romance tours.
I am deeply disturbed. I thought mail-ordering brides went out in the 1800's.
For $3,000-$6,500 you, yes you, can spend 11 days meeting 500 to 2,000 women. If you sleep, go to the bathroom, and do other vital things for 6 hours a day, that gives you 23 minutes per woman at the 500 level; 6 minutes at the 2,000. This is the basis of a lasting relationship...or at least a fiancee green card, I suppose.

Besides, who knew I quualified as a Real Man?

I wonder if a civil union from out east would qualify as close enough to a marriage to actually keep the girl in America / get her here, after you picked out the "one that's right for you"...assuming, of course, that your husband approved of your selection... :-)

Re: Hmmm...

Now that...that's a thought :)
I could use a maid.

Re: Hmmm...

*grins* I think we could all use a maid, when it comes down to it. Especially if she did laundry. And cooked, too. (Wait a minute...the more I think about this, the more it sounds like the description of my mother, back when I lived at home...)
