73-year-old Joseph Weiner says that the economic crisis hasn’t hurt his mail-order bride business. The former I-banker now has 30 offices and is steadily delivering beautiful young women from Eastern Europe to the doorsteps of rich and lonely men around the world. The company, called Hand-in-Hand, says it is “designed for single men looking for a true life partner who is beautiful, significantly younger, educated, is unspoiled by feminism and whose culture is one of support & respect.”
Bloomberg Businessweek gets Weiner to elaborate:
Hand-In-Hand’s website trumpets the fact that its females are “unspoiled by feminism.” Company founder Weiner argues this form of chauvinism—like the mail-order bride business itself—is economically motivated.”You take a beautiful woman from the Czech Republic and you bring her into your home, she does all your cooking and cleaning and ironing,” [Weiner] says. “At the end of the day, the service is free.”
Hand-In-Hand estimates the potential savings of a homemaking wife at $150 per week.
So that’s what feminism has cost men–$150 a week! Imagine!
Good thing all of Weiner’s customers are getting their money’s worth out of these unspoiled “life partners.” Otherwise they might have to marry a woman who had a job, you know, with an income. But hey, $150 a week of savings! That’s good too.
