I really didn't know where to put this thread. The social issues forum seems to be missing?

Anyway, my friend found this website where parents (Americans, mind you) put their daughters for sale online. Some of the girls go for over 100k. I suppose the parents who are selling their child for 5K must not think she's a 'prize'.

I haven't found anywhere on the website that it's a joke. I really think this is real. Check it out:

www.marryourdaughter.com...

I took this off the website:


Our Service:

Marry Our Daughter is an introduction service assisting those following the Biblical tradition of arranging marriages for their daughters.

Those who wish to list their Daughters with our site should click on SIGN UP OUR DAUGHTER on our main page for a form to fill out.

Those who wish to propose to a specific Daughter should click on the PROPOSE button on the Daughter’s INFO CARD.



I honestly think this is the real deal.

It's obviously fake, just look at the testimonials. lol

Yes I read the FAQ,

From the link.


Q: IS YOUR SERVICE LEGAL?
A: Absolutely. Within the United States girls can marry as young as 13 years old with parental permission, and the Bride Price is a custom of long standing, mentioned many times in the Bible, and as such is a protected religious practice. Click HERE for a listing of the age limits and legal requirements in various states. Click HERE for what the Bible says on Bride Price.
.

Sounds like Sharia law to me.

Thanks for the info, I guess you posted before I did my post and I didn't see it.

So is a joke.

I am not sure if that sight is legit or not. I read through the faq, testimonials and about us page and nothing points to it being a joke. I was afraid to click on the propose links for one of the bio's so I'm not sure what it says after that.

After reading the "testimonies", I think it's not genuine, but - possibly - some kind of lure or bait.

IF that is so, I am not sure what is it that they hope to achieve.
Anyway, their statement about the "legality" of marrying at age 13 means absolutely nothing in this context; just because marrying at 13 is legal, it doesn't mean that the website is NOT some kind of hoax.

Just read the "testimonies" again, and you'll see (I hope) what I mean.

This smells like creep-bait.

I don't see how it is a hoax...

I married an Indian girl (pictured in avatar)
and her entire family, going way back,
all had arranged marriages... some only met
on the actual wedding day...

Now, of course, that is India...

But I do not think this is a hoax for two reasons.

a) From a Christian Fundamentalist point of view,
taking the Bible literally, I can see someone believing in
arranged marraiges, even in America in this day and age...
I personally think it is sick and twisted (arranged marriages,
not Christianity) and I sure had a wild experience as a white
guy breaking a 1000 year arranged marriage tradition for
my in-laws (an Irish Catholic son in law, oh how proud they are!)

b) Who would bother to create a site that elaborate for a hoax?
I guess someone with some serious time on their hands.

My vote?

It is real, and it is sad ( the underage part especially )...

This has been previously posted, and debunked. I'm trying to find the link... I'm crud with search engines though. I'll keep looking though.
bits.blogs.nytimes.com...
Found this link though.
Hope people actually read this instead of posting a flame...

$100,000 seems a bit steep.
If I had to do it over again I would do the Philippine Thang.
Except, the smaller they are the more they eat so I guess $100,000 may be cheap after all

It's kind of a joke as a few has said already.
At least that is what the creator meant it as if I remember correctly.
I read an article about it not too long ago (1 or 2 months maybe?).
But I think some people took at as legit and actually tried to auction their kids off like that. Darn scum wad wastes of sperm and egg (the parents not the kids).

It's a fake? Damn!!!

Oh, well, back to the, "How to meet a chick in prison" websites.

So totally beat you to it


But someone else beat me to it before that.

Alas, that is the way of ATS, is it not?

Haha this totally reminds me of the website that no longer exists called www.manbeef.com. Information on the hoax They claimed to sell human meat for consumption. You could even get jerky! It was a very well done website, but eventually taken down because it was a hoax. Anyone else remember this? I remember feeding my friend jerky then showing him the site, convincing him that he just ate human flesh.. I don't think he ever forgave me for it, but it sure was funny
