How do thai guys save enough for marriage?

Recommended Posts

Gawd, did I luck out or what! None of this crap with mine or her little family. I help out voluntarily and always receive gracious thanks. Never a push for more.

 

Hope the lights come on for "pooh bear" and that it all works out. Sounds expensive!

can you imagine if the op is telling the truth and reading these comments? :cheesy:

 

i hope he doesn't jump.

They said hookers only work in the bars , they said educated girls are honest and good, they said it’s true love😉

Are you having a laugh.......

NO, I'm not and I'm not trolling. Is the story that ridiculous ? i mean marriages on average are expensive everywhere.

The sin sod you have agreed to pay is definitely on the high side for a lady who is living in a village in a poor part of the country. At her age she should be either in education or working and you should not be required to support her other than perhaps topping up her salary a little.

 

Another concern I have is that you say you send money to support her and her family. Why are you not with her? Not being critical here as I am sure you have your reasons, but it does seem rather unusual to not be with the lady you're engaged to.

 

I wasn't aware its on the high side, from what I've gathered (through the web) the average is about 100kbaht to 500k baht. and i still got told (250k) was on the low end.

 

Also had to take in account she's the only uni graduate in her family, so they've invested a lot in her and likely have their hopes on her. I'm pretty much taking that away (she'll follow me back after our marriage). 

I do visit her every month or every few months.

Wow - so you have been working 2 years - how many times have you been to Thailand?   Mid-20's, will you work and live in Thailand after marriage?

No way in hell I'll ever work there. Honestly could write a whole book on why.

 

Wouldn't live there either. Hot, polluted, loud, inconvenient. And i honestly believe theres something off with the water there. They've got a high gay population.

It is funny anyone would come here to ask for advice.

Still, there are some really good advice/sharing. Thanks all for that !

Are you expecting sympathy because a Thai farm girl can out think the big bad Farang?

A= My definition of Sympathy is to be found in the dictionary between S**T and Syphilis.  So NO, none for me.  Keep it for others.

2) she wants a bullion for her tong mun, since she doesnt wear jewellry. So im thinking of getting a 100g PAMP bar. Could i bring it into thailand as a carry on item ? Or would i have to buy it there? 

Thais don't understand gold from outside thailand. too hard to apprase.

I don't believe a word of this and if you ever been in a crappy Thai village you will realise they all talk sh%t. Comparing Litrually anything they can think of like 9 year olds. Crappy issan villages not really a good example of Thailand at all IMO.

 

 

You should not give a single damn as regards the thoughts of village neighbors. They have too much time on their hands, and too little to do, bar swing on their hammocks.
