Unformatted text preview: ith the different men .However we do
not display the brides and is a rather informal
session. 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
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

Q8: Any preparation for the women before coming to
A: Girls go through an intensive 45 days training on
cooking, language and household skills in a hostel in
Vietnam with a professional trainer. The hostel they
stay is confined to all women and they have limited
exposure outside the hostel to ensure they do not mix
with bad company and to ensure their discipline.
Q9: Any cases of marriages gone bad? If there is, how

case ,the Taiwan representatives went down to
understand the problems as well as counsel the
couple .And of course to help the woman seek legal
action .But one point to note ,we do not encourage
divorces or breakups ,we always suggest patching
up .We will assign counselors to each couples and they
will go down and understand the problem ,talk to both
the husband and wife to source any bad influences or
problems .If the quarrels are bad ,the company also will
fly in the parents of the bride if the fault lies with her .Mr
cupid also teaches the men how to be good husbands
and also proper behaviors such as not to pamper their
wives too much for fear of failure to meet increasingly
high demands expected by the women. 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
allowance .This is for the women to repay any debts
or to pay off th...
