Relationship Fail: Will You Marry Me For A Green Card?
Our new column finds the best relationship fails on the web for a lesson of what not to do online.

Welcome to our new column, Relationship Fail, where we'll be showcasing the disastrous, hilarious, sad, and pathetic things people do online in the name of love. Our first installment is a doozy we found on Craigslist—you'll have to read it to believe it.
