The Sun reported that Thanyaporn had since moved to Norway having started a relationship with a Norwegian man.

My crystal ball foresees a Norwegian falling from a Pattaya balcony in the future...

why kill yourself?....geez...dump her and move on...and I am not being insensitive...these guys need to grow up emotionally

I am inclined to agree with you, but many guys here have no emotional support here when things go haywire. A Lifeline type service is needed here.

Maybe your crystal ball needs new batteries!  More likely a fall from an Oslo balcony as she has moved to Norway! :smile:

Well he met her in a bar in Pattaya so it is very unlikely she was anywhere near his age.  Married within a month?  Yep sounds about right.  Bled him dry? Yep that sounds about right too.  Once the money runs out she moves on to the next farang mug?  So far all perfectly normal behaviour.  Yet another sad story of gullible foreigners falling for the Pattaya curse, although it happens all over Thailand.

 

For those of us who have found good partners in Thailand, we should count ourselves very lucky....  I know I do!

Bully for you.

He was quoting what the bargirl said or wrote -  Unfortunately he omitted the quotation marks. He knew what he was doing .............

Although he got a bit carried away with the "I reply" bit .

I agree with that but try telling a newbie farang that the new "love of his life" is only interested in his money?  You can only help those who want to be helped.  When your head is buried that deep in the sand then all we can hope for is that they find their way to the Thai Visa Website and all of the cynical b*ggers who reside here.  Then we can really spoil their dream! :crying:

Yeah you never find good time gold diggers anywhere in the world but thailand.

Seriously the guy met a woman less than half his age, in a bar , where she worked as a prostitute???

He married her a month later.

Dreadful he committed suicide but I would ask the question...would he marry a woman from Wales who was a prostitute? Probably no .

I believe the expression is caveat emptor

He might if the Wales prostitute was gorgeous and young and seductive and 1500 baht.

I have no mercy for someone who is stupid enough to marry a bar girl one month after their first date. Now she lives happily ever after. However, rest in peace Mr. Toms.

RIP taff but seriously what a sad story. Sounds like he got royally out of his depth playing the white Knight.

 

I wonder what more he had to lose. House rented, business left to rot. Had a decent pension and a new life to look forward. 

 

Is there not a basis that his wife would lose a pension by being married to him if they got divorced?

 

Widowers pension?

With divorce from his ex-wife imminent

Would his Wife still be entitled to a pension (if they were still married) ?

No reason for her not to receive a widow’s pension.

 

If such an occupational widows pension did exist, he may have nominated her - if not she is legally entitled by marriage......... you can only have one widow, and ONLY a widow (or nominated partner) can benefit.

Would probably depend on whether the marriage was registered with the British Embassy in Bangkok.  However in Norway the pension is about triple what she would have got so a much better prospect for her to go for the Norwegian.

 

Also are widowers pensions paid out with suicides?  She would have probably needed to get the police to put it down as an accidental fall

So, had his divorce gone through (a few days later) , she would have lost "her" pension ?

   Hhhhhhhhhhmmmmmm
