The Star-K will no longer pay you to marry older girls

The Star-K’s shidduch incentive program was hailed as brilliant when it first hit the mean streets of Baltimore. You see, Baltimore was suffering from a brain drain of sorts, the guys all left to New York and New Yorkers have long deemed Baltimore girls with that fretful status of GU – Geographically Undesirable, that left an abundance of aging girls who weren’t spring chickens anymore stuck in Baltimore with no men to date them.

Along came the Star-K with their “get those old maids married” program in which they would pay shadchanim a bonus if they would set up girls who were older than 22 years and 2 months old (WTF is up with that age), the girls had to get married, although it was never stated whether they had to remain married (during hard times people get desperate for money).
