Taiwan curbs foreign bride firms
Only non profit-making organisations are now allowed to do so, according to Taiwan's government.
Many Taiwanese men travel to China and south-east Asian countries, especially Vietnam and Indonesia, to find brides.
They say they have to do so because Taiwanese women are putting careers ahead of marriage, delaying getting married or not marrying at all.
The BBC's Cindy Sui, in the Taiwanese capital Taipei, says matchmaking agencies have developed a booming business, charging men as much as $9,000 to help them find a wife.
But Taiwan's government has decided to put a stop to this.
The national immigration agency says the new law has been brought in because many of the cross-border marriages are based on "weak foundations".
I love "the cross-border marriages are based on "weak foundations"" bit, lol .
