 My understanding has always been that if they are legally married husband is protected  and the courts usually uphold that,  it is when they're not legally married there anything in her name belongs to her no division of property 

there are many many sensible laws in thailand, but many of them are not enforced or carried out properly. of all the cases i know where the foreigner has made the mistake of getting legally married to a thai the foreigner has lost the house. one case the house was given to the kid because the mother had abandoned him with the father. if the foreigner never married the thai girl she would not have been able to take it.

many guys i know have walked away from almost anything but they are still happy just to have their freedom back.

 

 

I was one of them back in 1999.

 

All I kept was the pensions and what I could fit into a Ford Mondeo estate car.

If you take a wife half your age your playing the odds.. if you attract girls with your money do you think the want you or your money ?

 

I was recently divorced (unfortunately) from my Thai wife.. I kept the car and the house she did not want a thing besides what she put into the relation. We are still friends but I selected carefully and she was not half my age or attracted to money. 

 

They are out there.. just harder to find and get.. and probably not half your age and looking 10 times better. Woman want a good looking nice guy too.. Guys would not want a woman twice their age why would girls want it without some monetary compensation.

 

And yes there are good age gap relations out there.. but that is like winning the lottery everyone talks about it but fey actually win. (I have seen a few.. but seen more that were not genuine).

men age  much  better than  women, my  Wife  loves  me for what  i am.................87 yrs  old, shes 21  sooon:thumbsup:

I'm not defending the way things seem to work here but it's really not a lot different in my home country.  Laws related to divorce, settlement and child support have generally not been changed since I was born (in the 1950s).  Even though most women now have jobs of their own and many have decent paying jobs as well.  In addition, many women in my country seem to care more about the kind of car a man has, how much money he makes and where he lives than they do about the person.

 

Luckily for me, I married very young and divorced 5 years later when we still had practically nothing.  She tried to get the car but it didn't work since I had custody of the kids (aged 5 and 1.5 at the time).  I'll never make that mistake again.  "Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice, shame on me."

 

I now have a live-in Thai gf 18 years my junior and she has a 16 year old who also lives with us.  They both seem happy with the better (though not extravagant by any means) life they have now.  If things change someday (which I hope they won't) at least I won't have to deal with divorce court.  And I decided to only rent when I moved here so "taking me to the cleaners" won't be an easy task for anyone.

No, it was a company rental.

 

I didn't have or need a car as I worked offshore most of the time.

 

I moved to an old girlfriends house, stored my stuff there and stayed with her when I was in the UK which was about 1 month a year.

Strange that you guys lost it all.. where i come from wives get 50% of the joint property and a monthly allowance. Quite fair too they gave up all to stay home take care of the house your needs and kids and could not make money themselves. Then when it goes south she has to leave with nothing because you made the money.... forgetting what she did all the time for you and kids and could not have her own carrier because of it.

 

That monthly allowance is gone when she starts working (only topped up a bit). I have even seen cases where wives had to pay for their husbands. But these wives had a career made more money then their husbands. So it works two ways. You know what your getting into when you marry.. law has not changed in ages and you moan and bitch about it. 

 

Tough luck id say. First time around i was smart enough to have a pre nup.. kept my house out of it, and because of the short marriage only a short time for monthly allowance... all fair IMHO.. sure it sucks when she chooses an other guy.. but she is not property unlike what some of you might think.
