In the Ezine article entitled the history of mail order brides, writer Ken Malborough says “the early settlers of the American continent, the major portion of whom were men, were not able to not find brides in their own country. Therefore, they had to turn to Europe with the expectation of securing a bride.”

The process would begin like so: the man would write a letter to correspond with the European community to find a woman. Other ways to secure a bride included writing to the community church or taking out advertisements in various publications and magazines.

As time passed for women living in the East, primarily in Eastern European countries like Russia and the Ukraine, finding a Western husband was an opportunity to leave poverty. Once in the West, these women could send money back to their families.

Here is how the system worked. The woman would read an advertisement or hear about a letter that presented the right opportunity for her. She would then send a photograph and write back to the man, exchanging letters over a course of time. Finally, upon agreement of both the man and woman, they would agree to marry without meeting one another first.
