That is no problem for me : Every time I go to Thailand I take small gifts for her family and friends. Registering the marriage It is not unusual for an actual Thai wedding to be conducted without any formal registering of it carried out at all. After the wedding the father wasn't happy that his daughter was living in a condo, so he bought them a town house somewhere around 10-12M Baht. She actually had tears in her eyes when she told me that she loved me and I also had to fight with a tear, but only one. Especially since I knew very very little about Thai weddings in general. It is your choice, As for this rubbish about paying back the family for raising the daughter, so you can marry her, bla bla bla.
I think she was hoping that I would agree to that high amount, and when I balked, she offered a 350,000 amount, still too high from my perspective. As in western weddings, it is quite common to see a cake cutting and bouquet toss these days too. Condominiums are an exception, you can legally own a condo in your own name, and you can protect it with a prenuptial agreement. If she was into it for the money, she was very bad at picking her prey. Do not pay for someone's company. I shall be writing a travel article about the 17th century Chateau Mcely for the Mail's Weekend magazine, but mention it here because of the story behind its restoration.
This means that she has already received large sums of money should we ever separate or if I die. But in my experience wealthy families don't take money from their kids in the same way working class families do. So while I fully understand the magic of Thailand felt the same in my exchange year there between 2010 and 2011 , Western men should be aware, that they really have to man up and deal with their own deficits, if they want to make this work. She said if I marry her within 6 months she told Papa can marry for free!!! Plus it would affect the flow of the wedding process. Treat your wife the best you can, share great life experiences and your time with her and enjoy your time together.
It is not customary for the groom to make the arrangements, so you can relax and leave it all up to your girlfriend and her parents. My own mom gave birth to my brother when she was 34, and she was sick for pretty much the entire 9 months of the pregnancy. Celebrity second and third marriages are the exception to this rule. My girlfriend wants me to talk to her mom to ask her for permission to marry and sin sod. I don't suppose you have any information about this do you? A recent survey of women in to executive positions found that Thai women were the 2nd most successful next to women from the Philippines.
I could have a date whenever I wanted. Often these women are single for a reason. This process will make you address your relationship with the Thai woman. Others are eager to marry a partner from other countries and that's where another problem occurs — where to do it? During the Vietnam War tens of thousands of American servicemen dated Thai women. Point is, she is the one for me. So, why not combine some international travel with the possibility of meeting the woman of your dreams? Unfortunately, in some cases where foreigners are concerned, the tradition is being exploited as a way to get as much money as possible.
Today Western men are considered desirable by the local females. Just something to think about. Take your time getting to know her and make sure that she is the right one for you. I've never said I agree with Sin Sod. She did inform me that I will be presenting the sinsod to the family the day of the wedding, so that's no longer a mystery. But it would certainly be returned. I truly believed he was the one.
How not to find a Thai Bride Do not, however, casually go to Thailand, meet many , decide to bring one home and then, in order to make it easier, marry her. The reason is that breaking up or ending a relationship is much less desirable to an Asian woman. I am speaking here to the folks who are coming back here with questions about demands for 4-5-20 million sin sod. However, it is wrong to assume that this means that these women are submissive, but often the simply do not have any other option until they begin watching Western movies and television shows. However, it's still not a widespread lifestyle.
Thailand is a large country with many regional influences that affect the way engagements and weddings are conducted. I was a poor college student. It's hard for me to go that far. Also, they always can hold a conversation on various topics, that you are familiar with. Maybe even do a pre nup and write in that her savings or appartment and welth will be payed to the party that is unfathfull if it happens. And I'm quite sure if he visited Thailand he'd fall in love with a number of 21-year-old girls! Prestige or not, I'd rather marry an average, frugal woman who understands the value of marriage and who shares my vision for working together to save money and enjoy it sensibly during a hopefully happy long life. To the average Asian woman, her dream is to find a man and spend the rest of her life with him.
