Every spring, the town of Stara Zagora in central Bulgaria hosts a controversial bride market where young virgins are paraded in front of suitors who bid on them. The market is the biggest annual get-together for Bulgaria’s 18,000-strong Kalaidzhi Roma clan, a subgroup of the Roma people who face constant prejudice and exclusion across Europe. Unable to live off their ancient coppersmith heritage, the constantly sensationalised bride markets are one of the last surviving Kalaidzhi traditions. To find out why these medieval-sounding markets exist in modern Europe, and how Kalaidzhi girls feel about being sold off, Broadly correspondent Milène Larsson travels to the village of Orizovo to spend time with a family with two daughters as they’re preparing for the annual bride market.

101 East investigates the dramatic increase in South Korean men marrying mail-order brides, up from almost none a decade ago, overturning centuries of prejudice against interracial marriage and creating a wave of cases of divorce and abuse.
More than a third of South Korean men in rural areas married foreign brides last year. While some unions are happy, the industry has also led to sex trafficking, domestic violence and murder.
Authorities are cracking down on illegal agency activities but the Korean government is facing calls to implement a stricter screening of interracial marriages.

Marriages of convenience, or sham weddings, are an illegal way of obtaining residency and citizenship in Europe countries and elsewhere.
This film meets men and women who marry – or plan to marry – people they hardly know, with the sole objective of obtaining European residency for one of them. These deals can sometimes cost one of the “partners” as much as 15,000 euros ($18,100) with no guarantee of citizenship in return.
A so-called “white marriage” is where both parties willingly participate in fraud but stay together. But in what are called “grey marriages”, the whole venture is a charade in which one party not only plays the system but also deceives the other, often with shattering consequences.
Despite the risks, some see sham marriages as a less dangerous form of migration than crossing the sea in a rubber dingy.
n this film, we meet six characters who have either been involved in a “grey marriage” already – and suffered the shock and humiliation of being deceived – or who are planning to use marriage as a means to a better future.
