There have to be easier ways to stay in Taiwan than going from one visa marriage to another visa marriage. this just sounds like an awful lifestyle.

Just when I think I know a lot about Taiwan culture, I realize I don't know it all. What is the going rate to get a Taiwan girl to marry for a visa? Is there a website for something like that? If not, then a business opportunity missed.

This is one of the saddest posts I read. If your life is so bad that you must hung on a woman you don't love to gain APRC....then I really feel sorry for you. Can you be yourself for those 2-3 years that you plan to wait in this marriage? Will you be still yourself after that time? Or maybe your life has already changed you, bent you so much that you actually don't care?
I agree there are other ways to get APRC than staying in a bad relationship and ruin oneself's life. Just do it through your work. If you think it is not possible, then do everything so that it becomes possible.
The easy road is not always as easy as you think. There is always a high price to pay for it. To pay for using other people.

Sad and depressing, yes, however sometimes you have little choice.

If you by getting divorced have to leave Taiwan and 1-2-3 kids behind, would you not rather stay in the marrriage until you get the APRC?

I was separated from my former wife for 2 years for this exact reason, however we had a written agreement, stating that she would help me with the APRC and once I got it, we would divorce. That worked OK.
