The short answer is ZERO - Whatever the family feels they can get away with. Personally I didnt and wouldnt pay a penny.   Each to their own and their individual relationship.

If she is a virgin with a degree and full time job, pay what the family asks. If she has had kids pay nothing, if she has been married before pay nothing.

The shortest answer one can give you is this "No".  Sinsod is outdated and is not part of your culture.  As an American Father my responsibility is to pay for my Daughters wedding when the time comes,

Aren’t you putting the cart before the horse here?

No, not really. If I return to Thailand to live I'm going to be doing it with my eyes wide open

I'm the first to admit that I may be out of touch regarding certain things in Thailand but some things remsin the same like not buying property unless you are prepared to loose it etc. 

I hope this question does not come across as Thai bashing as it's not my intention. I have loved Thailand since I came here years ago but Thailand can also eat into your assets until you have none, but only if you allow it.

Depends on 2 factors. Firstly your financial situation. Secondly the person you meet.  I have no children of my own and therefore had the resources to give sin sot.  My Thai wife comes from an educated family and used the funds as deposit on her own house and also to set up her own business.  That business has thrived through her hard work and I'm probably one of only a handful of men out here that don't pay her a monthly ' allowance '.

 

Final bonus is I live here rent free in her house.  I'm satisfied that the outcome was a sound investment on my behalf.

Yes- in all the Thai engagements I have been to in Bangkok (between Thais) there is a sin sot.

About half a million to a million Baht if in Bangkok? More if wealthy and a mix of cash and gold necklaces/bracelets.

 

My understanding is most, if not all the sin sot is usually somehow returned to the bride and groom after the wedding to start their lives together.
