. We love each other very much and will never divorce.

 

3. Kids were very confrontational with me at first, took my wife's side, which I understood and was happy with the support they gave her. Time is a great healer and we get on well now. Gave my daughter away at her wedding last year. Neither of them have visited me, primarily because the refuse to meet or even aknowledge my Thai wife, even though my wife and I separated long before I met her.

 

 

So you're married twice ? 😮🤨

What's the granddaughter done to be deprived of a grandad and all the joy that should bring ?

My children were deprived of grandparents becaus of a petty dispute between my wife and her parents. It happens. Children are often the "collateral damage" in internicene wars.

I am indeed extraordinary handsome, always had first pick of the girls in every year at school and had to fight them off with a shitty stick throughout my adulthood - I know my dahlias from my daffs and a variegated plant is a mutated plant (according to google :-))

 

Best we not move onto girth ...

That's unlucky.

 

I also came to Thailand whilst still living at "home", kids growing up, wife and I had not been 'together' for 7 years.

 

Wasn't looking for anyone I just came to Thailand with a mate for a bit of fun. Found someone at the end of my second visit and have been together 13 years - me living in Thailand for 11 years. Two daughters visit regularly and readily accepted my partner; we also stay with my ex-wife when we visit the UK and we are back again at Xmas.

 

I consider myself to be fortunate.

You are indeed - at the end of the day it simply comes down to maturity levels I guess.

It is a fairly dumb question. I would say nearly all of us came here divorced. Why? Because we came from countries where a large percentage of the women are lost. The US is the utter embodiment of a nation that has lost it's footing, has really never found it's identity, and has a population of women, 90% of whom, have no ability, willingness, wherewithal, or desire to connect with, manifest, or embody their inner woman, or express femininity for anything other than personal gain. The US is on the decline, and has been for the past 30-40 years.

 

It is the Western Roman Empire, in the late 5th century AD, prior to Odoacer marching on Rome.

I was separated from my American wife, when I met my current Thai wife while we were both working in Singapore.

Lived together in Singapore for 13 years before moving to Thailand.

Another 10 years in Thailand and we moved to the US, snowbirding in Thailand over the winter

One Thai son, two American daughters

Thai son shares a house with my eldest daughter, we all talk.

My ex is still probably my best friend, we talk every couple of weeks.

 

These kinds of relationships are I think more common than you think. The acrimonious breakup, child custody nightmares hit the headlines, but a lot of us just figure it out

i'm not divorced those are the guys you read all these horror stories about on stickmans guide to bkk readers submissions. No Ive never been married I researched Thai women so when I came here. I met one who started alarm bells when she wanted to get married and started more when she wanted $20k dowry for her heavily drinking father who as far as I could tell was funded totally by her. She was in debt already to the tune of 3M baht and if i loved her i'd help her pay it off.

 

When I analysed the situation I realised it was only comfortable older farangs  the ones i know giving their wives 30k per month to do the shopping that can afford a thai wife. (btw they are saving 10k a month for when you run out of money)

 

The uk is full of even middle aged guys like me with no pensions or huge payoff coming our way so we work and date filipinos instead they don't want your money, only a loving relationship ..

 

However there isnt a future here when you can't own the land run a business or do anything else your wife or gf is only there as long as the gravy train keeps pouring.

Another reason for me to not go on vacation in the US. Coming from the UK i don't recognise your description of women.

 

BTW. I was happily married to a beautiful and vivacious wife when I first landed on these shores.

Exactly. The OP reeks of "trying to do research on the cheap." I suggest giving false information.

My Brit wife dumped me age 52, proclaiming I would never have sex with a woman again now she didn't want me.

Came to Thailand to get away from women ....... flight was cheap ....... when I got here I realised I had made a mistake.

But at least the 40+ much younger women I banged while out here proved my Brit wife totally wrong.

And even though I paid most of them, they all showed me more love and affection than my Brit wife of 30 years.

 

Not seen the 4 Brit kids since I left over 10 years back.

Oldest daughter (30+ )came out to Chiang Mai to see me, I didn't reply or meet her.

Oldest son (30+) sent me a photo of his recently born daughter, I blocked him.

They both sided with her during the divorce, I've got no time for traitors.

I also sent the Brit wife a postcard photo of the woman I moved in with (half her age, half her weight and twice as pretty), with the word 'thanks' written as the message.

I sent my ex a postcard from India and told her she'd love it there, after all, the cow is sacred!

I have never been married and never will change this. Never understood why people marry. Perhaps it is different if you have kids. But I never wanted kids. Even without marriage I never was (long) alone and had many nice relationships.

Nowadays in the West, a relationship longer than 2 years is usually considered a de facto relationship and your partner has the same rights as if married

I would not recommend America as a vacation spot, at this point in time. It does have some gloriously beautiful areas. Especially the National parks. But, there is too much angst, bitterness, division, fear, disappointment, and disillusionment in the air, at the moment. Give it a few years. With a democratic president who is not spewing hatred and venom daily, things might improve just a little bit.

Not going to happen. They turned my visa application down years ago. I don't go where I'm not wanted.
