Ini boring sila jgn baca
last day, sedang aku bersantai santai bersama bini di rumah, layan citer Oprah. Oprah ni mmg satu rancangan yg agak best. Sebab? Oprah slalu bagi hadiah kat audience yg datang ke studio. ada skali tu siap bagi kereta satu sorang, bole? Ok, kali ni rancangan tu mengetengahkan cite pasal seorang perempuan ukraine bernama Lera yg sanggup mencari teman di internet dan berkahwin dengan lelaki yg tidak dikenali di new york.. semata mata utk melepaskan diri dari kemurungan dan ketidakmajuan negara ukraine. aku malas, so aku copy paste je sila baca, agak menarik.
Ukraine is a country in Eastern Europe about the size of Texas. Though men don't feel a pressure to marry at any age, marriage becomes a priority for women around the age of 17. "By the time you are 19, next thing you see is 20 and you're considered an older woman," says Lera, a Ukrainian woman. "By the time you're 25, some doctors will tell you you shouldn't be having a child."
At 19, Lera decided to post her profile on a mail-order bride website in order to move to the United States. On these sites, men pay thousands of dollars to bring a wife to their county. "For me, it was an arrangement to help me get a visa and perhaps a green card—and a husband comes with the deal," she says.
Half a world away, a 50-year-old New Yorker named Steve found himself lonely and looking for someone to talk to after September 11.
Steve posted his profile on a mail-order bride site and connected with Lera.
After three months, Steve visited Lera in Kiev. "The moment I walked off the plane, it turned into something more," he says. "I was already in love with her. I didn't know her, but I felt like I knew her all my life."
In 2004, Steve and Lera married just two days after she arrived in the United States. "Suddenly I had this man in my life. Not like a boy," she says. "It was something I really wanted, and suddenly it magically appeared in front of me."
