If a foreign woman and a Thai man want to marry each other, does he need to pay her a Sin Sod?

Recommended Posts

 ... and also how secret she can keep her secrets from falang?    - the  past/present marriage(s) and the kids...

I imagine if the marriage was in Thailand a sin sod would be part of the ceremony, even if only a symbolic gesture. Would the brides parents even be attending the wedding in Thailand to receive the sin sod.

Mine didn’t, but we didnt so the village ceremony.  It would have just been for show if we did do it.

as a token of her love and affection for her Thai man it would be good karma for her to give.

It would be a sweet, respectful thing to do.  But completely unnecessary, as it is with all Thai marriages.

IF a woman in Thailand is marrying a woman, guess not yet, who is paying then?

 

In India, the man gets a dowry and even long after marriage can increase the dowry. Send his wife to parents to get more and if not right, he can walk and makes his wife ugly by setting her on fire. 

In western world mostly the family of the bride is paying the mariage. However some countries the woman has to show off with her big fat /engagement wedding ring.

All stupid things. Marriage is stupid, its only a contract for government.

The vows in marriage arent worth anything, it just can change in a jiffy. For instance: see lately Nicolas Cage.  

Marriage, when the pink has gone, you face a  black hole

people who get better with these silly things:

 

diamond cutters & sellers : THERE IS NO SHORTAGE .... 

 

demand is kept high by keeping supply low and create a WANTING

 

venues that do those silly overpriced weddings, hotels, caterers, ...

 

flowers that are dead after a day or used for the next event and billed many times

 

etc....

The "sin-sod" is not paid to the lady...it is paid to her parents. 

So, I suppose the question should be directed to the ladies parents.

  In Farang land it used to be the ladie's parents that had to pay the "dowry" to the groom's parents.
