Abstract

期中進度報告特色計畫子計畫二

        Are those “Vietnamese brides”, who marry Taiwanese as a means to help their families to get a better-off future, “good women” or “bad women”? In Vietnam, a girl from a traditional family believes “sacrificing” her own interest or giving up her own dreams in order to help her parents or brothers is a thing that a “good daughter/sister” should do for her family. For this kind of girls, helping their families is their “debt of the soul.” However, in the eyes of Vietnamese elites, these “Vietnamese brides” are “bad women” for they pursue a kind of marriage that is not based on “true love” but on “economic reasons.” They see this kind of cross-border marriage as “nation’s shame” and should be “prohibited” by law. From the perspective of cultural boundary, this paper argues that the border line of “good women” in Vietnam is drawn by upper-class Vietnamese who see “marriage with true love” as human “pride” and is a prior value that should be adopted by “good women”. And this border line excludes those “good girls” who put family’s interest before her own interest, which means sometimes they even have to marry someone they do not love.
