Noiva do Cordeiro, Brazil is a small town with a unique twist that is getting it a lot of attention. There are almost no men within the town’s borders.
According to Yahoo, Noiva do Cordeiro‘s 600 Residents are almost all single women between the ages of 20-25.
Husbands are not welcome except on weekends and once sons turn 18, they are encouraged to leave.
“The only men we single girls meet are either married or related to us….
We all dream of falling in love and getting married.
But we like living here and don’t want to have to leave the town to find a husband.” says 23 Year Old resident Nelma Fernandes.
The Motivation for the Way the Town is set up is a Direct Result of its History:
The town was founded in 1891 by Maria Senhorinha de Lima, who had been excommunicated as an adulteress after leaving a man she had been forced to marry.
Over time, she was joined by other single women and female-headed families, and the insular society came into being.
In the 1940s, an evangelical pastor, Anisio Pereira, took one of the town’s 16-year-old girls as his wife and founded a church there, imposing strict puritanical rules.
When he died in 1995, the town’s women determined that they would never again be subject to male domination, and they dismantled Pereira’s church.
The town hopes to attract more men by inviting them to come visit. Interest is very high gauging by it’s website, which has crashed due to all of the traffic.
However, if allowed to move to Noiva do Cordeiro, men must follow all rules set forth by the women of the town, including religion, farming, town planning and other guidelines.
