Abstract: The Mekong River Delta in Southern Vietnam sees the nation's highest number of women marrying men from wealthier East Asian countries (i.e. Taiwan and Korea). The brides—disproportionately from rural areas—cite their number one reason being to improve the financial situation at home. Using statistical analysis, my research attempts to examine the massive record of emigrant brides in this region and assess their claim of monetary incentives. I look at factors such as domestic and foreign GDP per capita and marriage remittances.
