Q: IS YOUR SERVICE LEGAL?
A: Absolutely. Within the United States girls can marry as young as 13 years old with parental permission, and the Bride Price is a custom of long standing, mentioned many times in the Bible, and as such is a protected religious practice. Click HERE for a listing of the age limits and legal requirements in various states. Click HERE for what the Bible says on Bride Price.

Q: WHAT IS A BRIDE PRICE?
A: The bride price is an ancient custom, somewhat like a dowry. A man wishing to marry a woman would offer her family a Bride Price in cash or kind, or sometimes offer to work for their family.

For more on the Bride Price, see:

Q: CAN AN ARRANGED MARRIAGE BE A HAPPY ONE?
A: If both parties work hard at it, yes, it can. The divorce rate for arranged marriages is exactly the same as those for marriages that are not pre-arranged.

Q: WHY IS YOUR SERVICE LIMITED TO MEN FROM AMERICA?
A: We need to be able to follow up on the satisfaction of our customers, which is too difficult to do in foreign countries.

Q: WHAT IF MY MARRIAGE DOESN’T WORK OUT?
A: We feel that marriage is a lifetime commitment. But in the unhappy event that your marriage doesn’t work out, then whatever conditions have been negotiated between the husband and the wife’s family will apply. Remember, we are an introduction service – we do not finalize arrangements between bride and groom nor are we involved in enforcing agreements

Q: WHAT IF NO ONE PROPOSES TO MY DAUGHTER?
A: In the unlikely event that no one proposes after six months, we will return 50 percent of your listing fee.

Q:WHAT IF NO ONE ACCEPTS MY PROPOSAL?
A: In that case, you might want to closely examine how you are proposing and how carefully you are matching your likes and dislikes, your goals and dreams, to those of your prospective bride.

The Marry Our Daughter website is down. Google says that none of the three men have any online Google history. That might only mean that they are using fake names. Or it could mean that they are for real and have never run a website before. There is an address in Fallon, Nevada for one of the men.

It's a gag site, just like the hilarious hoax called BONSAI KITTENS!

Do you remember that one?

They put kittens in various glass tubes and jars and "grew" them in unique shapes and sizes!

It caused an outrage with animal activists and the site creators had to tell everyone that it was done with Photo shopped pix.

From the website:

"lobstah@amway.com Months ago, you have masterfully shaped my kitten into a trapezoid; however, now, the 45-degree angle on the tail side is weakining, making her more of a rhombus than anything. Although, I could reinforce the front side with the angular clamps you sell, I'm afraid she might turn out to be a parallelogram. Any tips?"

The website is back up. I cannot say it is a gag or that it is not. Christians can get pretty weird.

Whenever you read a "testimonial" about getting out of a trailer park, especially on a site that's supposedly Biblically-based (and the obvious thing about marrying girls off that young, which is a favorite stereotype of people who feel superior to rural, Southern white fundies) you can bet it's a gag.

If the testimonials were real they'd speak of "God's mandate" and a "young woman fulfilling her purpose" and such instead of paying bills, buying cars, etc.,.
