Can’t be bothered to read the whole thread,,,never paid sinsod when I married,no problem with people paying sinsod but if the money is not returned to you and your wife after the ceremony you have been taken for a fool and scammed

Sin sod was paid for a virgin. How many farang men pay it for a virgin these days?

Before my wife and I got married, I brought this sin sod question up. Her parents did not ask for any money and neither did my wife, "it's just not right," they said and it doesn't make them look good as Thais coming from the Isaan region. All the parents asked for was that I treat my wife good and that we live happy. Although my wife is educated, her parents come from very poor backgrounds and I've never had any money issues with them.

 

On the other hand, I see numerous of guys moving to Isaan specifically the province I live in and having to go through the whole sin sod deal. I guess it depends on the wife and the family members.

We have as much a clue as those with the saffron tinted glasses that choose to wai, give loads of sin sod without getting it back, and think Thais are all peaceful happy people that never get angry in public.

 

Generally when people pay money they get something in return. In a wedding the farang pays sin sod and in return gets a wife. Money= purchase. 

Perhaps some just like to give loadsacash away for fun.

My first (western ) partner's mother would not have expected me to fork out cash in exchange for her blessing.

I'm always a bit wary of FOC 😃

You probably mean, everyone you know who married were foreigners? I know for a fact that locals do pay sin-sot and don’t get it returned.

Actually, no. I don't know any single person who has married in the last 20 years in this country, Thai or foreigner, and not had the sinsot returned. I've been to dozens of village ceremonies. If there are villages in Thailand who don't follow this trend, I don't know where they are. Based on my experience they must be the exception rather than the rule.

I gave 200,000 and balance paid in a year would be given if no significant issues or wife thought playing with other fellas was a good idea... didn’t make it 1 year. 3 years later still living under

same roof with minimal perks...

You live in Thailand right? Most Thai-Thai marriages (if not all) involve a sin-sot which is not paid back.

@Kurtf that just goes to show you have no idea of Thai wedding culture.

I definitely know the difference between culture and prostitution. Paying money to anyone (relatives) for the pleasure of my wife’s company is turning her into a prostitute. I have friend that married a Thai lady and she makes him send money to her parents every month. To me she is just prostituting herself as a way to take care of her parents. JMHO

I married a TG years ago, we're long divorced now. She was a village gal from rural Udon Thani, she'd previously had a Thai hubby and had 3 kids with him, when I met her she worked a bar down South. We had a Buddhist wedding in her village and after that an amphur wedding in BKK. At the village wedding I put up 30,000 THB which was passed around on a silver plate for the locals to gawk at. Afterwards the entire amount was returned to me. I clearly knew that a Thai woman who has had 3 kids and worked a bar doesn't get a sin sot, so it was just a nice gesture on my part to give my wife and her family some face.
