Are you married to a Thai woman – Any Snippets of Advice .

Recommended Posts

If I were to start again with a Thai lady, I would take note of times she goes to the temple each month. I find that after a temple visit she are particularly evil. Virtually all my darkest times have been when she has recently gone to temple.

 

It's not been all doom and gloom however. There was a day last month where she actually made me a decent cup of rosy without me having to whistle for it; as I normally do. And last year she fed my koi carp without me telling her; no dinner for me though.

 

Sometimes I think she has matured. "Owl dear, do you like this shade of lipstick?" "Lipstick is wasted on you dear!" As she came at me with the cleaver I quickly said; "your lips are perfect as they are; no lipstick needed ." This seemed to clam her.

 

Our lovely daughter is the glue that holds it all together. Couldn't continue without her.

22 years for me as well. If someone needs to ask the OP's question then all is lost before you begin.😇

Definitely.

Stereotyping also is a bad idea, though I find that Thai's are better at living together and maintaining space - even in the same room - so in general it works out a little easier in that respect than with some women I remember from England... 

Maybe I'm different - I didn't have many of the issues that I heard many guys had with their women.

Well some of us never went to Thailand for the hedonistic attractions of Pattaya, Patong  and the like. 

Me and my wife lived in Singapore before I decided Thailand was our low cost retirement destination.

 

So if that makes us boring, I'll fess up, guilty as charged.

We're just a normal couple, son, working slobs (well she is) splitting out time between the US & Thailand, and as I guess you would characterize it, living a boring life.

 

One word of caution however.

 

We can all lead the hedonistic lifestyle, but as we get older, the thought of who we want to live with, can be a whole lot different to the question who do I want to die with!

 

I can't fault that response to be honest. Fair play.

Many people married do not trust their partner, want to know where they have been, who with, check their partners phone etc.

LOL. I trusted my wife, and it wasn't till it was over that I found out how untrustworthy she had been.

Had I not trusted her, I'd have been far better off financially today.

I had no issues with her going off to do her thing, and she sometimes told me about how someone had been trying it on with her. She worked, like a normal Thai person, so I wouldn't have been able to "check up" on her all the time anyway.

 

BTW, how do they check their partner's phones when they can't read Thai?

The very small insignificant things, like telling her you love her, good night my darling, good morning my darling, we do this every day.

Us too, I knew it was over when she stopped telling me that she loved me, as she knew how important that was to me.

My wife can come and go as she pleases, if she wants to tell me where she is going/has been, up to her, i never ask.

Me too.

for over 5 years she has done almost everything for me,

That lasted the first year, then it slowly diminished to the point she wouldn't do anything for me.

The majority of men searching for a better life in Thailand, together with the women searching a foreigner is a deadly mix, and give most very few chanches of a happy life. 

 

If both parties know to suck it up, and try to make it better for them self and for their partner, both is on their way to succeed. It takes two to tango, and that is the hardest learning.

You are fully aware of my situation, so why bother posting that comment.

Ok so you are bitter regarding your time in Thailand, so you got out.

Many of us, me included have had bad experiences with Thai ladies.

You should be aware that not all Thai ladies are bad.

Sorry you took it that way. I was just contributing my experience compared to yours, and not making any comment on you personally.

Bitter about my time in Thailand? Not at all. I loved Thailand ( despite all the problems I had there ), and wished to live there till I died. Unfortunately I chose the wrong woman to do it with, and ended up not being able to live there anymore, because I didn't have enough money to pay for accommodation and medical insurance both. I could have stayed without insurance, but that's not a situation I want to get into in Thailand.

If I'm bitter, it's at myself for making the biggest mistake in my life, and getting legally married. Had I been clever, I'd have had a village wedding. I don't think I made a mistake with her initially, as she was a lovely, lovely woman, but her family ruined our marriage ( and her ).
