A '''mail-order bride''' is a woman who lists herself in catalogs (online or otherwise) and is selected by men for marriage.

In the twenty-first Century, the trend is now based primarily on internet-based meetingplaces which do not per se qualify as mail order bride services. The majority of the women listed on in the twentieth-century and twenty-first century services are from [[Southeast Asia]], countries of the former [[Soviet Union]] and (to a lesser extent) from [[Latin America]].<ref>[http://www.uscis.gov/files/article/MobRept_AppendixA.pdf uscis.gov]</ref> Since the collapse of the [[Soviet Union]] large numbers of eastern European women have advertised themselves in such a way, primarily from [[Russia]], [[Belarus]], [[Ukraine]] and [[Moldova]].
