Law Prohibiting Marriage To Foreigners Over The Age Of 50 Proposed To Thai Cabinet

Recommended Posts

So does that mean that a foreigner over 50 cannot marry any Thai national regardless of age?

e.g Foreigner 51 and Thai woman 45 cannot get married?

That would seem ridiculous!

Yes it is ridiculous and doesn't this law also go against basic human rights?

Basic human rights........in Thailand? I assume you are joking?

Is there another government anywhere in the world that refuses to recognise the overseas marriage of it's citizens to foreigners? I find this to be utterly absurd.

What a pity we can't all chuck in the towel, gather up our assets and take off. Ha! And leave the Thai women to fight over whatever decent, responsible, loyal, hard working, financially successful Thai men they can find. As ugly as cock fighting is, it would be tame compared with the resulting Thai bitch fights, ... as the last of us, so apparently undesirable, farangs disappear.

Thai girls will have to search for their useless brothers and force them to help support the parents. Well, this wouldn't be such a bad thing at all, if it were even remotely possible.

It really doesn't need to be race specific, why do't they just set a minimum age gap for ALL marriages. 25-30 years. A 50 year old couldn't marry a 20 year old. A 60 year old couldn't marry a 30 year old etc. Farang or Thai or both.

It's racist pure and simple. And very thai.

I don't care about the law itself BUT I do care that it is completely RACIST against foreigners. If the law was applied to everyone (Thai's too) then its just a law which we must accept although may not agree with. A very controversial law, but not without some merit. I do beleive there is something uncomfortable with a 65 year old man marrying an 18 year old, but that is just personal opinion, everyone is different.

But the MAIN point here is this law should apply to ALL nationalities otherwise it is purely RACIST!

On another note, I know of a 40 year old Thai man who married a 14 year old girl in Rayong! She used to live next to my sisters house. One day I asked where she was and my sister said shyly she had been married off to a 40+ year old Thai man! Apparently this kind of thing is not uncommon. This, of course would never happen with a foreigner. Therefore, the proposed law can be deemed to be racist. The politicians proposing it should be severely reprimanded and labeled as RACISTS.

Right on bro, the best thought out statement yet.

People from all nationalities are more comfortable with it when the older guy is loaded...it seems money can make the guy less creepy

This is no big deal. There is no need to marry, and it will bring a sigh of relief from many who are being pressured by their GF and her family. What is not mentioned in the article that the proposal also includes a restriction on inheritance. Any clause in the Will of foreigner which favours a Thai national will be become null and void. And this IS retro-active. This will cause some consternation, and possibly protests which will overshadow anything the red shirts have managed.

Can you explain that further ? I have never heard of this proposal.

Sure. It will enacted one year from today.

HAS ANYONE LOOKED AT TODAY'S DATE OR EVEN TRIED A SIMPLE GOOGLE SEARCH TO CONFIRM OTHER SOURCES FOR THIS STORY. THE INTELLIGENCE LEVEL OF SOME MEMBERS OF THAIVISA ALMOST MAKES ME THINK IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A GOOD IDEA.

MAYBE WE COULD ALL HAVE A LOOK AT NOT THE NATION AND THEN SEND MESSAGES ABOUT OTHER RIDICULOUS THINGS THAT 'REALLY ARE HAPPENING' IN THAILAND.

If they pass such a stupid law it should be retroactive. That is all marriages that took place when the foreigner was over 50 should be annulled.

Actually I heard from a friend who has some good contacts that they are seriously looking at this as well.
