The man and women then goes on quick dates to find out whether are they compatible or not .The dates last for a few hours or so. After which the men express their interest and wait for reply of the Vietnamese women .Most often the response will be positive .Then Mr. Cupid will then provide information about registering the marriage and settles all related procedures such as the marriage ceremonies etc. For women coming over to Singapore, men will choose a woman they take a liking to and shows affirmation and information of the men is shown to the woman. The men pay a deposit of 30% of total package price .So if the men don’t like the woman; the deposit is forfeited but if the woman withdraw out of the marriage, then the deposit is refunded. The cost of $13888(latest promotion package) includes everything from the men’s food and accommodation, wedding ceremony and gifts .The only exception is the jewelleries. Q8: Any preparation for the women before coming to Singapore? A: Girls go through an intensive 45 days training on cooking, language and household skills in a hostel in Vietnam with a professional trainer.

There will also be a peer support program where brides will be linked up with existing foreign brides introduced by Mr Cupid .All this is inside the 3 years probation program included with the package. Only in the worse case scenario then we consider separating the couples but so far we do not have such cases . 10 Q10: Any ethical problems you know? A: Some agencies have very cheap price to entice customers but they threaten the women to coerce their husbands into giving them regular allowance .This is for the women to repay any debts or to pay off th...
