Looking for a wife

Baron Brooks knows what he wants in a life-mate, and he's using a unique method to find a wife.

The Salt Lake City man paid for a full-page ad to be published in Saturday's print edition of The Press. Much of the advertisement, pictured here, details what Brooks is looking for while seeking a mother of his children.

It states: 


You will probably be between

the ages of 34-38 but that can be flexible.

You will be attractive being height and weight

proportional. Ideally, you will have no children from previous

marriages but that is also flexible.


• You must be willing to move to Salt Lake City as that is where my business is located.

• You must be politically conservative. This is very important to me. If you voted for

Obama or plan to vote for Hillary you are not for me.

• I am 5’5” and if you are 5’8” & like to wear high heels it may not work.

• Religion is open.

• I would expect that if we have children you would be a stay at home mom.


I own two health food stores in Salt Lake City. I was born and raised in Los Angeles and

moved here ten years ago for my business. I am Jewish but not very religious in a formal

sense although I am spiritual. I own my own home.

I have asked my father to screen people for me. He will be at the Coeur d’Alene Resort.

You may call for an interview on my behalf on Friday June 24th at 208-765-4000.

When calling the Resort ask for Arthur Brooks. Interviews will take place

Saturday June 25th. Please bring a short one page description, background

and a current photo.

The end of the advertisement states:

This is absolutely not a scam. The person or persons selected

will be given round trip air ticket as well as first class

lodgings. You may bring a chaperone if you wish;

mother, father, friend, etc. Their expenses will also be

paid. We will go out on a dinner date and go

from there.
