Must be a really slow newsday. Or in other words, the French man paid for a house in the name of his soon to be ex-Thai wife, and moved back to Pattaya, where his wife had been working since she div

The following history is not mine, but from another farang I know. He is sharing this on a public web site. If you do not care about love...not waste your time reading it, but ...perhaps will give so

i hope there are no balconys on the new house!

You cynical bunch of losers, someone else posts something positive and relatively cheerful and what happens?

You are falling over each other to post your well worn and pathetic rhetoric.

Are your poor and boring lives so empty that they need a few seconds of moronic titillation from your thoughtless comments?

Get a life for goodness sake!

I will try tomorrow..............thumbsup.gif

“We had to go separate ways because he was irresponsible and kept flirting!

Pattaya City is probably not the best place to keep an irresponsible man from flirting...

Might want to consider moving back to Korat...much harder to get in trouble there...

They did not meet in a bar. BIG DIFFERENCE! Now please try explaining that to ALL the TV members. Bar girls are HOOKERS not girlfriends or someone you should ever think of getting married to. Now repeat after me . My girlfriend or wife i met in a bar is a HOOKER!

I met my Thai wife through a friend and his wife. My wife is a Bangkok girl 15 years younger than me. She was a widow with two young daughters and her father had also died so she lived in a house with her mother -aunt and the daughters -a house with no men. As such she was the bread winner that fed the family. She was educated and had 2 degrees at university and a good but pressurized job as a manager of a Big C. She had managed to save enough money to buy 2 other houses which she rented out and her mother made noodles to help out the family budget and also a small shop attached to the family house.
After I asked her if she wanted to get married she said yes and we went to ask for permission from her mother who gave her consent. I paid 600 pounds dowry (@ 30,000 thb) which her mother waied and gave straight to her daughter.
My wife then came to live with me in England and worked with me in my market business. She worked hard and also educated me in customer service and retail that she had learned from Big C and our business increased (also customers loved her smile). The work was very hard in cold conditions and long hours but she always got stuck in and never complained.
Every month we sent money over for the daughters and every February we returned for a month holiday. The first and every time we went back to Thailand the mother-in-law handed over the same pound notes we had sent her unchanged into baht. Also she surprised me with a large gold chain and a precious Buddha amulet.
After that we took first one daughter over to the UK and the next year the younger one. They both went to school not knowing any English and they struggled but they learned to speak it in one year. At weekends they accompanied us to work and worked hard helping. They also cleaned and cooked at home. Eventually both girls gained degrees -the eldest one in English university and the younger one back in Khon Kaen University. The eldest daughter fell in love with England and went from strength to strength and now is a manager for an international retail company.
After seven years we decided to retire back home (Thailand) and we came back with the youngest daughter. I had sold our small house in the UK and my wife sold her two spare houses in Thailand and we built a riverside resort in Isaan but after being flooded twice we sold and moved here to the mountains where we do small farming.
So what did I get for my 600 pounds? Well I got the money straight back -I got an educated and hardworking wife -two lovely daughters- a great welcome from all the large family including the family of my wife's late husband that we live near and do anything for us. I got 15 years faithful wife plus the money from her two houses… oh.. and nearly forgot a large gold chain--yes my sin sod was the best investment I have ever made "pure gold". Remember sin sod is more than buying a wife, as with everything in Thai life it's about bringing good luck –

it sure brought me some

Thank you for this. It shows that good things can come when you find the right person. Not every Thai woman is a gold digger. Hard work and strong parental guidance can do wonders.
