What's a farang???
From a Thai Woman to You -- All Farangs
I have spent quite a bit of time reading posts on this forum, especially under the topic of "getting married in Thailand."
I am sorry to learn that most of you, farangs, have had negative experiences with your wives' families in terms of money. Most of you here talk about paying a lot of money to support your in-laws. sounds very much like they are leeches that constantly \\ //// every pound or dollar out of your wallets.
I am sorry to learn that thai women marry you for only money for themselves and their families. and only to elevate themselves socially and financially. once they get what they want from you, they walk away from you.
Sounds like these thai women give us a bad name.
I do not deny what i learn from your experiences. but i would like you to please not assume that we all Thai women are just like that because we are not.
My impression is that those of you who share your stories here all married to women from villages or rural areas where people are un- or low-educated and very poor. that's why what happened to you happened: she and her families wanted your money. you are viewed as a bucket of gold their daugthers just happen to fall into, so can get as much gold out of the bucket as possible. they do that because they are poor, because they have a golden opportunity, because they can, because you allow them to, and because you love your women.
I believe that there are a lot of thai women who never want to take advantage of you financially, me included. i believe there are a lot of thai women who value love more than money. I am from a very humble background. my family and I never ask for money from my American fiance. If he wants to help us financially, we appreciate that. If not, we
continue living without asking. He asked my dad about the dowry he was supposed to give him. he told him he wanted nothing; he did not have me for sale. and let me repeat, my dad is poor and low-educated. we are a
poor family who doesn't have a savings account. all my dad wants form him is his love and respect for me.
Again, I am sorry for your bad experience. But for those who are seeking true love with thai women, have faith that you will find one who just doesn't only crave for your money. you just have to look carefully. whether rich or poor, good thai women still exist.
Thank you for reading until this line. I just felt a need to say something here. I am done now. :)
The closest I've come to Thailand is Las Vegas, NV, so I can't offer an opinion on women from that area. However, I am familiar with old and ugly overweight American men. IMO, this is 2011, not 1911, and if you embark on a romantic pursuit with a lot of archaic steeotypical notions, you're going to end up disappointed. Also, if you're an impure man, it's quite likely you'll find an impure woman, regardless of your search criteria.
