That Thai men do like they want and take what they need many times when it regards women, relationship and marriage that we all know. It´s nothing new, even if it is a totally brain damaged way of living.

What I am curious over, is how the monks can be allowed to continue marrying someone, who they by the time doing the ceremony knows is married to another woman by law? What does the monkhoods belief and rules say about that? What stance does the Sangha Council take in this matter? I was under the belief they were the ones who was showing people to walk on the right path in life.

 

My appologies if my post is against the forum rules. Just had to write it off my chest.

The temple ceremony is just a religious ceremony, same as some cultures jump the broom. It is not recognized as a legal marriage until it is registered with the  Amphur.

Can you please tell me something I don´t know! Why did you feel the need to inform about that? I assume you believe it´s right to continue a ceremony of the people that have chosen to live the right way, when one of the persons in question is legally married, then.

Basically Monks will do anything for money just as will the majorioty of most other Thais.    I find nothing religious about Thai Monks; many just seem to be scoundrels wearing robes and in the 14 or so years i have been here i think standards in Temples and among Monks has dropped considerably.

Smart phones, smoking, porn, prostitutes', killing each other, etc..  Really doesn't seem like much is off limits for monks in Thailand.  Cannot possibly be compatible with Buddhism.  So much attachment, desire, etc..

You´re spot on! Have a great weekend. 🙂

No law has been broken. You're perfectly at liberty to marry according to Buddhist tradition. Just don't register a marriage twice.

Exactly!  The monks have no idea about Buddhism.  I have had numerous discussions with my wife and other Thais and have often found that none of them have a clue about Buddhist principles.   The conversations always seem to end with me inquiring as to what it is the monks teach you which was met with glances at each other followed by the shrugging of shoulders.

Just don´t register a marriage twice????? Why do you even post that at the same time you are trying to sound smart? It´s not possible to register more than one marriage!

Only that makes your post fall. After that I was not saying any law has been broken. The only thing I put in question was the etics and moral standards that the buddhist tradition puts first in walking the righteous path.

Actually the groom and the new "girlfriend" have committed a suable offence under the Thai marriage act. Although this is only a ceremony the act has brought shame and loss of face on his wife who can sue both her husband and the gf for millions. But seeing that he is a cop in a small town it might "not get up" LOL

After all the bashing on TV about the rage and immaturity of Thai men, we get a guy who just ignores all the clap and gets on with it.  Good for him and shame on the others. (Mom included).

I can't resist to indicate where he could have the idea from.

If you know what I mean, please don't elaborate, no names please.

I concur that monks are often in the news for all the wrong reasons ...but are they any different or worse than other examples of teachers of religion. Look at the track record of catholic priests , evangelistic preachers in the usa, nutjobs in some middle eastern or african countries.
