But you said before you cannot love and trust a woman that does not provide some finance as well?

No, I did not. You have misunderstood what I said. I said "assets" and I refer to things of value other than spreading their legs.

 

In post #103, I said, "I am always amazed at the numbers of men who accept a wife who is only an expense and never an asset."

 

In post #107 I said,, " I was referring to choosing a woman who brings something to the relationship rather than choosing one who brings nothing other than her body."

 

And, in post #107, I said, "why do so many men accept a relationship with women who bring so little to that relationship?"

 

For example, my wife of almost 40 years provides great counsel; because she is intelligent, capable and has OUR best interests at heart--that is a great asset. I can also always count on her to do what is best for us, not just for her. She has always taken care of me in all ways. And, for the most prurient of you; she is still a very attractive woman--according to our 32 year old son's male friends.  And, even though she was not wealthy when we met, she was eager to learn. She wanted to make something of herself. I did not need to encourage her to go to school, gain marketable skills and have a good career; she wanted it for our family. 

 

Those are great assets.

99% of the complaints seem to be about thelselves, i have seen few if any showing concern for their children or partner....

 

Maybe you can point me to a handful of posts of posters showing concern for their wifes and partners?

They are in every thread discussing the new 400 in the bank extension requirement.  You don't really want me to go back and read all those threads do you?

 

Edit to add one, " Is`s time fore your wife and all wife/husband to wake, soon the all money are gone. No one pay food, rent,gas,school money to children+++ so start to complain to the Head Office of Immigration in Bangkok."

You said there were 'hundreds of posts' of this so it should take you less than 2 minutes to dig up 2 or e examples.

No burden.  You make the payments and when you die have a will and use the money in the bank to pay off the loan.  Any other questions or you can say, "well ya that works."

Hmm possibly. Not sure what these Thai women can borrow against though. Doubt you can get a loan from a bank on a house in nakorn nowhere.

Those are great assets.

And ones which many women have. They are also generalky only known to those closest to them or in a relationship with them.

 

Unlike you, who judges and sees only what he wants to see and insults women and other peoples relationships with your baseless assumptions.

Even better yet, tell your wife to band together with her friends, and start pressuring this government to start making things easier for ex-pats here, and not more difficult. It effects their lives too. This hapless administration does seem to be responsive, when they are openly embarrassed and widely criticized, online. Start some facebook forums. Start some instagram forums. Get the word out there, about these draconian fools, and the xenophobia rampant at the highest levels, at this stage of the game. Shame them into showing a modicum of decency, reason and respect for the ex-pat population, and an appreciation of that these guys bring to the table.

My wife's family lives in Surin and has no problem borrowing money on land and/or homes.  I should point out they work for the government.  But so do many other Thai women work as teachers, government clerks and nurses .......  no problem getting loans.  Half of the women who work in Thailand are not rice farmers.  Not to discount the rice farmers though as they also have methods of borrowing money.

I've never had a 'partner' in Thailand, but I have had a series of employees, on various types of contract.

You are not living in Thailand. Back home what you say is correct but not here. Go and try it sometime and I will humbly apologize if it works for you.

Banngsgr is correct, my friend (in Trang) married to Thai lady just learned all the land they have has been used as collateral by his wife's brother loans,
