What is a "mail order bride".  Please don't say she was delivered to some freak by UPS.

Long story short, rich guy picks an attractive younger woman from a poor country/village and they get married.

My step grandma was a mail order bride from Mexico in the early 1980's.   She was an amazing woman who took incredible care of my grampa.  We loved her dearly & miss her now that she has passed away.

I had a co-worker that did this with a Phillapinna woman. He is old and fat and bald and she is young and gorgeous.

I know several modern day mail order brides. Majority being from the Philippines, one from Russia. I know some older generation mail order brides from before WWII.

LOL my dad is also bald and he used to be fat. He’s lost 100 lbs over the past few years.

My mom is gorgeous though. People don’t believe that she’s a grandma.

Early 80s? That doesn't seem that long ago for her to be a grandma of someone who now has children. How old was she? Did she already have your mom or dad?
