Czech women have everything for international matchmaker
Czech women are highly sought after as brides in the West and Arab countries according to the boss of a worldwide matchmaking service. According to him they can offer everything, including at least conversational English and a valid passport.
The founder of Hand in Hand, 73-year old former investment banker from New York, Joseph Weiner, says the matchmaking business is booming partly because many Western, and presumably Arab, men can’t find what they are looking for at home.
Mr. Weiner is wary of giving figures for how many couples he has brought together. He complains that the happy couples frequently don’t tell him when they have hitched. Czech papers report that some Czech women have already found partners in the United Arab Emirates.
That would be no surprise for Mr. Weiner, who set up his Czech branch 14 years ago, and is full of praise for what local women can offer on the marriage market.
For him Czech, woman also have another fundamental factor in their favor and that is what might be described as their international ticket to bride.
“It’s the passport, they got to have a passport, basically because of the visa problem. Basically the Czechs and Slovaks do not need a visa to go anywhere in Western Europe and they do not need a visa to come to America, which obviously helps us. So basically, they have to have a passport.”
