"The Arrangement"


Recommended Posts

Tully , your friend isn't the norm. I'm 60 been here 2 yrs with one girl. If I'm still with her in 10 and either croak it or move on then I would prob give her a modest condo say 3 mill.

This means there would still be several properties in AU for my 2 sons.

Despite a few hard luck stories of people that do what your friend is doing.....they are the minority.

I was successful and astute enough before, I'm not about to get pu##y struck.

Soul mate ? ....give me a break is the friend a dill.

Like previous member if my gf complains she can nick off.

Its my way or the high way and that does not treat her as a lady, respect her and take good care of her. But them dah rules..... You friend sadly is a fool.

I wonder how many men posting on this forum, have never lost a house to a woman they loved?

Losing your home to a woman, isn't exclusive to Thailand.

Most men I know have lost one or more houses to a woman in their life time.

The younger men still have time to lose one.

It's just the way life is (for men).

The OP and perhaps others see Thai women as objects to be used occasionally but too dangerous to get close too.
They think this is the smart thing to do but sadly it condems them to a loveless existence. I know some farang with similar views which for some reason they love sharing with everyone. They think they are doing people a favour warning them that love is impossible in Thailand.
All of them are miserable people. They say they envy me my 16 years of happy marriage but insist it is 1 in a million and I was just lucky. I tell them sure I am lucky but You must open up to the possibility that not all Thai women are the same in order to get lucky.
Better to have loved and lost than never loved at all. Not sure who said that but it sure has been true for me smile.png

I object to 'farang', I object to 'Thai woman'.

No need for racism in a thread that applies equally to men and women of all races and nationalities the world over.

You made me laugh so gave you a "like" but why the sensitivity?

Bit tricky not using those words when the thread is all about men of european ethnicity coming to Thailand and falling in love with local women. Is that better for you?

I'm not a man of european ethnicity, and neither are any of my neighbours.

Yet we all have the same problems with women (local or otherwise).

Why restrict the thread to 'white boys'?

Because that is what the OP was about and I was replying to it.

No offence to you but you are very touchy. What on earth do you find racist in "thai women" or farang?

If you want a discussion about other people start one but there is no need to take offence at this one just because you are not included in it. That's just being childish.

Yet another American showing sensitivity. I believe in the adage when in Rome.....

Every Thai person uses the expression farang probably every day. The term is not racist.

Agreed and on the scale of things, there are far more serious things to worry about here in LOS. Edited by DILLIGAD

Just to point out TV is a forum for English speaking people, not a forum for white foreigners.

Indeed, That is why you are a Farang and not a chocolate man.

Now, the Thais don't consider that racist either - merely descriptive.

Is this so called "happiness" for us all? This link can give some ideas to answer that.

http://gam-legalalliance.com/services/family-law/divorce-statistics-in-thailand/

What a load of cr4p!

Are you normally sucked in by marketing ?

Is this article a lot og c.... too? It's a little bit old, but I think the principle is the same.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/3907581.stm

No, Norland.......... that one is right on the money. Some perfect examples of "the arrangement" - you take care of me and I will look after you (and you can look after your family).

Has no relevance to divorce stats though.

All threads will sooner or later die a "natural dead". As the OP, I can only congratulate the Farangs that have been in in a long term and still functioning relationship with a Thai-Lady.

Still I remain: LT relationships are based on a spoken or unspoken "Arrangement". Thai culture allows for "Arrangements". (A provider enters the scene and receives other benefits in return.)

Love? (As we understand it?)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

= A popular Farang-Columnist once asked his Thai-Wife of 10 years "Do you love me?" Her answer:

" You provide for me and the family for 10 years with food, clothing, and shelter. Of course I love you, why you ask?"

Arrangement/Love? You be the judge.

Cheers.

Swissie.... Your synopsis is perfect. .my Thai gf loves me like a Sheppard loves and cares for his sheep or goats.

I take care and provide for them in return she will LOVE YOU.

Its not complicated.

swissie now you are talking rubbish as usual. What you say is applicable around the world and not specific to Thailand. Chat to a girl back home and within 5 minutes she will be asking what you do for a living ie how much money have you got? All relationships are give and take based but you are clearly too scared to give in case you get burnt. That is sad.

You have a history of derogatory post about Thai women. Why is that? Once bitten twice shy is my guess but if I am wrong then you are just regurgitating hearsay. Either way you are clearly one of the miserables I mentioned above.

You have said before that you don't live here but enjoy travelling so after a few visits to a few towns you feel able to announce to the world that all Thai women are a bunch of money grabbing so an so's. You previously were under the impression that all village girls had internet access so should sign up for dating websites rather than working in bars. For this you felt you could not respect any of them! You know very little about life here so please stop pretending you do.

I find it funny how many people talk about losing their house to their Thai wives or girl friends, but how many out there have lost a house to your farang wife?

And that makes it a good idea to lose yet another one to a Thai wife How?
