It's hard to imagine marrying someone you hardly know - most people might not but thousands of women do it every year. These women mostly from Russia, South America and Asia marry strangers for many reasons: a better life, an educational opportunity, a chance to wed an American man, an escape from a terrible situation.

Who can judge unless you are in their position...then you really know. This story was printed in Marie Claire back in 2000, but it is still a worthy read and it Oksana Makarova's story is an example of the stark reality that some foreign brides encounter and what happens when the ending is not like the fairy tale they imagined.

My Life as a Mail-Order Bride

To escape an impoverished life in Ukraine, Oksana Makarova married a Florida doctor who could give her young son a future. Things did not go as planned.As told to Kira Zalan.

Bridget Jones Diary - Single
Bridget Jones Diary - Single Heroine now in her 50's
Over the last decade there is an increase of sexy women over 40 that are SOLO (makes Sex and the City look like a documentary)...many residing in major cities across the USA.

The more educated females have less luck finding the right man but they have more choices. MyLunaKiss is not advocating that single women need to marry to be complete. It's your life and your choice! Marriage is not the answer for everyone.

According to the Pew Research study of 2010 (HEY PEW DO ANOTHER STUDY)!
"Marriage rates are now more strongly linked to education than they have been in the past, with college graduates (64%) much more likely to be married than those who have never attended college (48%)."
"The racial differences are even larger. Blacks (32%) are much less likely than Whites (56%) to be married, and this gap has increased significantly over time."
According to the New York Times article on More Men Marrying Wealthy Women:

Married Mr. Big in the End - Go Figure!
“Among all married couples,” the report said, “wives contribute a growing share of the household income, and a rising share of those couples include a wife who earns more than her husband.”

Cartoon Exaggeration on Female Marriage Obsession
We searched far and wide for stats on the current state of single women  in major cities and this is what we found:
  • Number of American using dating sites: 40 million (can YOU SAY WTF?)
  • Percent of New York state adults that are unmarried: 44%  (THIS INCLUDES MALE, FEMALE, TRANSGENDER, BI-SEXUAL, LESBIAN AND GAY). Source:
  • Percent of Washington D.C. adults that are unmarried: 70% (I GUESS THIS MEANS IF YOU WANT TO GET MARRIED YOU MAY HAVE A CHANCE IN DC?)  Source:
  • State with the lowest ratio of single people (Idaho): 40% Source:
  • Percent of singles that have Googled someone on the internet before a first date: 43% Source:
  • New York state has the highest percentage of women who have never married in all of America. While the percentage statewide is 34.8 percent (that counts New York women 15 and over, which seems a bit young to us, but, then, we're not crunching the numbers), that statistic is supported largely by the women of New York City, where never-married ladies make up 41.7 percent of the population. Source:  (U.S. Census Bureau in their annual American Community Survey (via WNYC)
  •  46.7 percent of New York City men have never been married. (MAYBE YOU SHOULD MOVE IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR MARRIAGE IN NY)
  • According to recent stats, single women outnumber single men in New York by 149,219, which accounts for the continuing argument some make that women who really want to find a husband should head West, like, to Wyoming, where never-married women number only 20.7 percent.  Source: The Plight of the Single Lady Nearly Half the Population of New York City Has Never Been Married.

Diane Lane
Born: January 1965
Diane Lane is a Sexy Woman over 40! Lane is fresh faced, talented and is one of Francis Ford Coppola's favorite actresses of all time. MyLunaKiss loves Diane Lane's honest beauty.

Diane Lane has acted in over 50 films since the 1970's; and we love her energy, smile and the raw emotions she emits on the silver screen.

Lane's early films Outsiders, Rumble Fish and Streets of Fire are worth the time, The Cotton Club (we don't care it was a flop) is the first film she starred in with Richard Gere (Lane and Gere have acted in three films). The best Diane Lane films are: Unfaithful acting opposite Gere and Under the Tuscan Sun.

Diane Lane became a multi-millionaire when she was 18 years old and she was voted in 2004 as one of the Most Desirable Women in the World and VH1's Sexiest Women over 40!

Diane Lane will appear in Every Secret Thing and Superman-Batman Project 2015.

Spring Breakers...Vapid Stalkers?

Spring Breakers/Natural Born Killers/True Romance

Guns,Boobs and No Brains is the theme of Spring Breakers... this is not "Girls Gone Wild" more like film on puff the magic dragon! Not like "Girls Gone Wild" has merit.

Wow, I could have written a better script in my sleep. It seems Harmony Korine may have watched Natural Born Killers and True Romance too many times (Gary Oldman as the drug Rasta gangsta) ..hmm so familiar yet I digress. 

I swear dude...Harmony... dirty girl actors (Selena Gomez, Vanessa used to be with Bieber and two other random bikini bots and let's not forget St. Petersburg hustler James Franco (a true Renaissance man) must have been as high as a kite the entire film. 

Pussy Riot in Masks/Spring Breakers in Masks
I fast forwarded through most of it to avoid the painful acting on screen. Hello...this is why you can find 50 million results on Google that feature Spring Break Reality. 

Spring Break is mostly tons of college students zonked out of their minds, a zillion girls to a few hundred guys and don't think of even finding romance. If you must go, travel with girls you will want to see after thee days of vile behavior, lewd acts and random vomiting. 

Do yourself a favor don't video tape those moments, some experiences are better left to memory (it will haunt you later) and save money to burn because nothing is cheap at #springbreak.

The masks worn by the vapid bikini girls are a rip off of the punk feminine protest band Pussy Riot.  Why be original when you can rip...that's what I always say:)
