The next week a pastor from a nearby church drops by and asks us if either of us is willing to marry a woman from another country so they can get their green card. I find out I'm surrounding by people scamming the system

What's sad is I have probably seen more 'business" deal marriages work than, those marrying for "love".
As long as everyone is honest with each other, who cares I don't... I have a few friends that got a wife south of the border, it works for them.
I had a good friend come up with a plan (he didn't follow through) about going south of the border finding a woman that didn't speak much English marry her and bring her back to cook and clean etc... soon as she started figuring things out divorce her drop a dime on her with ICE to help along deportation and then go get a new one.
I have no idea if it could have worked, but I laughed way to hard when I heard it.

There is an entire industry where INCEL or loser men basically buy mail order brides... typically eastern european or thai women who want to come to the US. The women are usually somewhat younger and attractive. It is purely a business / sex relationship. Eventually, the woman divorces the guy after citizenship is approved and then runs off with younger men.

Oh gosh of course the rights from marriage are similar, but we have absolute trust as friends for years. I can't actually describe the reasons why and the deep link, it would require a new thread lol.
My life tribe is deeply connected, emotionally, socially, and geographically. I trust my potential scam bride massively...couple of mates might have problems though lol.
