Marriage Migration in Asia: Emerging Minorities at the Frontiers of Nation-States
Sari K Ishii (ed)
In an age of increased communication, not only interracial marriages, but marriages between different nationalities are becoming increasingly common. This trend has accelerated in East Asia because middle class women , with a greater access to higher education, more frequently than their mothers, do not consider marriage to be one of their life goals. So more men from countries such as Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Singapore and Taiwan are turning to Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam to find their brides. This study looks at the causes of this trend, the power relationship between both partners and the complex issues that result when the marriage goes wrong. 216 pages with an index.
