If I was very rich and not married to a Thai why would I ever come here more than once. That said if it's 5 star hotels , limos and private planes everywhere it would probably be somewhat different. 

But you're not, stop dreaming

But is it right to change the rules for people already living in Thailand for a long time?  

 

Some people are staying for a long time, have a family, there life here. And than suddenly they change the rules making it difficult to stay.

 

Also considering that in other countries they will give you a passport after some years, or at least a permanent residence.

 

Would it be right to send someone home after 20, 30 years, if he cannot prove that he has enough money to stay?  Living together with someone you are married to is a basic human right.

 

 

 

 

Who is to say what is right or wrong. Your insurance policies and coverage changes, your subscriptions change. Times changing so are the regulations.

 

They are not forcing anyone out, but expect people to comply with new regulations, If unable, there are still ways with "donations" and agents, but if can not even afford that, than clearly can no longer afford just to get by

 

Not saying is right or wrong, but it is what it is. Just like prices increase over time irrespective if we like it or agree with it, it just changes

In all countries in the world you will get a passport or permanent residency allowing you to stay when you are married. So nothing to worry about after that.

 

Thailand is really the exception here.

 

 

Yes i agree with you there, it is easier, however in all countries spouse provides  guarantee  to cover all medical and needs to provide evidence have means to cover until citizenship is granted,

 

In Thailand, when married, you are also allowed to stay on marriage visa with much less requirements, only 400 000 baht needed and no requirement for insurance either. 

 

How much does it cost to apply for spouse visa and the process in other countries?

 

In Thailand, you can also apply for citizenship and perm residency if married but need to provide all the docs and all the rest, and it is not cheap either

Agreed - If married, options are easier for many.

No it is not. Just because you do not like new requirements, it does not mean they are forcing you out.
