Buy yourself a wife at the local market.
Sofia – Bulgaria. It’s hard to believe an everyday market in Bulgaria a civilized country in the European Union once a year you can buy yourself a wife in the village of Mogila.
Normally there is an auction and the prices range from one thousand euro to a few thousand. The money goes to the girl’s mother for her consent to marry her daughter.
“My daughter is very pretty and a good cook, she makes the best cutlets in the village!” boast her mother Elena Adreevo 55 years about her daughter.
Standing on the roof of an old car is her daughter, 23 year old Irmina. Strong make up, long florescent green dress, high heels, and when she smiles you can see three gold teeth, as she goes red in the face.
Suddenly a strong voice from the crowd “I will give one thousand five hundred for her” The girl is gleaming with joy. Suddenly another voice shouts “I give two thousand if she can cook” from a thin man wearing a black jacket.
“I like the skinny man, he will make a good son in law” says with a smile Elena (Her Mother). A few moments pass and the deal is done.
“Kiss kiss” shouts the mother, and the new couple kiss and together drink a shot of home made vodka.
Irmina is in seventh heaven. She will have a man without having to search the streets. Her mother did not let her go to the local parties and village dances before.
In this way each year (By Auction) almost 200 women have been sold. 2,000 single men from all over Bulgaria have made the journey to buy a wife, and the numbers keep getting bigger and bigger each year. Even a few foreigners are showing up in a chance to spot a bargain.
For beautiful Bulgarian women the mother wants up to 3,000 Euros and the price depends on the skills of the girls, for example cooking.
Just before the auction the girls touch themselves up and apply some strong makeup in order to achieve a higher price.
Gold teeth are no longer in fashion and not valuable, girls with all there teeth are much more popular.
Sometimes Education plays a role, this girl finished High School and so her mother gets a better price.
