Hi

Not sure why he has not posted recently, but he did leave the area and I believe went to North of Thailand after having marital difficulties.

All too often I read about failed relationships between farangs and their Thai partners. Well right now in my little village I am watching a marriage between two Thais fall apart. It isn't pleasant for anyone here as all seem involved one way or another. Everyone is talking about fact and fiction, mostly the latter with all sorts of inflated gossip adding fuel to the fire. Typically Thai the conversations are based on relaying third party information. Why can't these people talk to each other face to face?

Basically the woman has been having an affair with a man from a neighbouring village. The husband found out and started beating her and drinking heavily. The third party is a member of the BIB (stationed elsewhere in Thailand) and as the situation has flared publicly started arriving at the womans house very visibly carrying his service pistol.

Apparently the woman has accepted a large payment from the BIB and has spent a considerable amount of it. The husband is a typical son in law here and basically owns nothing, nor does his family. They have two teenage and one younger child. The wife wishes to keep both relationships going. The husband is not happy but has nowhere else to go. The BIB wants either the woman or the money back.

Result, explosive situation.

I hear two or three stories like this each week from my wife. We live in a small village and, it seems, most of the marriages are not on solid ground because of the "butterfly" principle. Either the wife or the husband is chasing around and getting involved with another person's wife or husband. It's almost a joke at times and the BIB are frequently involved.

I just tune them out most of the time.

TBWG and Chuckd,

Thanks for the supportive comments. I agree entirely, stay out of it as its not my problem. However on this occasion the woman happens to be my sister in law and try as we can we are constantly being dragged into the middle. Very unpleasant situation. Other villagers expect us to intercede on one side or the other depending on which point of the triangle they are aligned to. The BIB has spread rumours and money around to get people to lodge complaints against us.

If I was a submariner I would definitely be in periscope down mode right now. Despite the rubbish being thrown at us, now is not the time to make a lot of noise and my largest challenge is to keep the wife on the same course. Jai yen yen my dear.

How true.

My cousin is now going through a melt down in his marriage. ( Thai-Thai and have been married for almost 30 yrs) He works at the local prison and she's a teacher. I thought it was wedded bliss, then my uncle told me that she rules him like a puppy dog.

Well, his wife got a call one night at around 3:30 and was informed that she should visit him at work, and that he could be located in a certian bugalow located at the prison that's used for guard housing.. well, she did and lo and behold, he's banging his gik and she caught 'em in the act. A fistfight ensued between the women...cousin's wife get's her ass handed to her on a plate, cousin defends his gik, cousin's wife leaves in tears and blood..follow so far?

Nasty arguments and rumblins from his house over the next few weeks...

Dipstick cousin takes gik out for lunch..seen by all here ( small village where almost everybody knows everybody or is somehow part of the family ) phone calls are made..cousin's wife shows up and clobbers him in the heat with a rock, blood everywhere..his wife scurries home, he goes to the local clinic and gets sewed up.

A few more weeks go by and I hear nothing on the grapevine. Ask my uncle on what's the latest skiddy and he informs me that he was caught again and this time his wife took a pair of sissors and made some holes in him. He survived and gets sewn up again.

He goes back home on his knees a week later begging for forgivness. Within two weeks he is mysteriously severly ill and has to be admitted into the local hospital ( that alone would be a death sentence ) Diagnosis: possible poisioning. ( get a clue fool )

Still with me?

Haven't heard a thing for almsot a month..ask the uncle the sit-rep is and he informs me that the cuz is now staying at the prison, not at home. Another cousin gets a phone call at 3 in the morning from the cousin's ( the player ) wife.. she wants him to go with her out to the prison. He agrees. She shows up with a pistol. He declines. She goes home because she said she was afraid to go alone...( hummm )

( I knew he was a smart one)

Now.. The player has moved out for good and is with his gik. His wife is divorcing him and has taken all his belongings and gotten rid of 'em to include his vehicle. House is now up for sale.

I stay away and have no contact with either party.

Yep..who said life in a small village was boring.

Maybe all this butterfly-ing takes place because life in a small village is boring.

Lest anybody think my life is boring, let me fill you in on two day's recent events in the village:

1. I was in my normal position as a retiree one recent mid-afternoon. Lying on the bed watching TV when my wife ran through the house shouting "Darkling, come quick!" (She has always called me Darkling for some reason.)

I rushed out the front door and looking down my driveway toward the back of the house, I saw my wife picking up her 2 year old very confused nephew and stuffing him in one of the cars, all the while yelling for help from our neighbors who were all clustered on their front porch and yelling something back to my wife. I quickly noticed all three dogs facing the house barking their heads off and my daughter standing on top of a table. Sensing something was amiss, I rushed, yet again, to the back of the house picking up a large machete along the way.

Upon reaching the rear of the house, and completely out of breath, I saw my wife's son had a ten foot broom and was holding a rather angry one meter long cobra, with flared hood, against the back wall of the house.

We clobbered the cobra with the aforementioned ten foot broom until he was senseless. I then picked him up with a grass rake, laid him across the top of the perimeter wall and let the machete render him asunder. He was still alive and totally angry as he had his hood spread out and was spoiling for a fight. When I cut him into two parts, the back half of the snake fell into the cornfield next door and the other half, better known as the business end, fell near my unshod foot. Quickly realizing this was not the ideal place for my bare foot, I rapidly moved it. I then scooped up the still alive and kicking front half with the grass rake, hood and all, and dropped him over the wall into the cornfield next door.

My wife later told me the neighbors who seemed to be lending such moral support, were really informing my wife they were afraid of snakes and wouldn't be able to drop over at that time.

2. The following night we had one of those tropical thunderstorms come through around 0300.

I was awakened when a flash of lightening and the clap of thunder occurred nearly simultaneously, which means it is very, very close. At the same time there was an electrical popping noise, sort of when a breaker switch gets tripped.

Almost immediately this horrible music began to fill the bedroom and I sat straight up in bed. Assuming it was my wife's telephone, I told her to unplug her telephone and shut the sound off.

With me being in a semi-awake condition, the next thing I noticed was my wife holding a large stuffed musical camel (one hump) in her lap while beating on it. The music kept playing all the while. I had given it to her as a gag joke when we were in Saudi and she always kept it by the bedside.

Hoping she didn't have a large knife handy, I thought it might be better for me to check out other parts of the house for any electrical problems so I left the bedroom. As I left the room I noticed she was still beating on the poor defenseless stuffed camel and the incessant music was still playing.

After a few moments I returned to the bedroom to find her clutching the camel in one hand and two AA batteries in the other. The music had stopped and it was now silent. She put the camel and the two batteries on the floor and went back to sleep, never saying a word. I crept into the room and finally fell back to sleep but I didn't turn my back on her for the remainder of the night.

I have since found out the lightening likely caused the camel to start performing the music.

Who says life in the village must be boring?

The non-boring part is figuring out the family tree ...

As Kuhn GDP said -- Still with me? So I guess some in the village are like Desperate Housewives and others are more like Ozzie and Harriet...
