A waste of JW, give 'em Bells or 101 Pipers.

That is a huge gift. Rather than making a big deal about paying a measly $3,000 for sin sod, he should be grateful that a woman of your caliber is ok with such a relatively small amount.

Oh, you are right. I made the mistake to calculate it in my mind without checking back again and came to ~$30,000, off by one magnitude, how embarrassing!

In a society where your own family doesn't scam you out of money, your hiso highness.

Paying a Sin Sod i not a scam. Especially after the legal marriage. No idea what you talk about.

However he is not the only European who struggles with that concept. However as I pointed out in another post, I miscalculated the amount in $ ... IMHO he should get a job (instead of working illegally online) and get over it, $3000 is in fact not much.

Thanks for all the comments. I guess I'd better just seriously talk to him again that I am truly offended by what he said and hope for the best. I just want to work this out with him and focus on this pregnancy and the baby coming. I have no plan to terminate it, as I believe I do have a decent job, a condo, a car and a safe environment for raising a child. 

No need for endless off topic debate. Topic is closed. Thanks. 

 

Sorry, I know you want to close the topic.. But if you don't mind me asking, what's your plan for taking care of the baby while you're working?

You also made a few other mistakes claiming the OP has a Masters in English. Put your reading glasses on please. 

 

Actually 1 Million baht would be a minimum for a woman of her caliber which would be promptly returned to both of them, of course.

 

But it doesn't matter because it's a troll post.

FWIW sweetheart, by my judgment as a native English speaker and as one who was highly educated in reading and writing when education meant something in the US, you are either an highly educated ESL who writes very well (with the proviso that its easy for me to see you are a non native speaker) or a very creative native english speaker/writer who can imitate an educated non native. 

 

Based on the writing skills I see every day, the second appears unlikely.

Never mind this girl and her problems what concerns me more, is you stated you are educated but according to your icon you are a Millwall supporter 😎

(before panties get twisted its called humour)

I accept that as you are managing to do a masters in Europe that you have managed to master English as well. Taking everything at face value the problem is that your finance doesn't have any real understanding of Thai culture. So the concept of Sin-sod is totally foreign to him. Regrettably he may just be too immature to appreciate that different cultures can be so diametrically opposed. He may never come to understand the concept, in which case it will be an ongoing problem that may lead to the relationship breaking down.

 

If you want to have a chance of continuing you will both need to talk for many many hours and remember that just because you are both speaking the same language does not mean that you understand each other.

Maybe they're both "too immature" as both of them don't understand each other's culture...

 

If they don't understand each other they clearly shouldn't get married or even be in a relationship together, as I have mentioned on the 1st page.

A flame has been removed, here is the forum rule that you must have missed:

 

7) You will respect fellow members and post in a civil manner. No personal attacks, hateful or insulting towards other members, (flaming) Stalking of members on either the forum or via PM will not be allowed.

 

Some more grammar police posts have been removed:

 

3. If possible please proofread your post first, poor grammar and spelling can make the post difficult to understand. However be aware that not every member is a native English speaker and excessive posts regarding others spelling and grammar not only hijacks the topic but is poor netiquette.
