Thai Girlfriend to Thai wife – some info on marriage

If you are thinking about making your Thai girlfriend your Thai wife then here are some interesting facts for you to consider.

I have been writing a guest column called “Angella Talks” for my friends Steve and Golf at Thailand Musings and recently I began a post about divorce between Thai women and Farang men and so I thought I would add some information about that subject here as well because I feel it is an important and interesting topic.

You know I talk a lot about what is needed to make an intercultural relationship work, it is one of my passions because I see so many Farang men who have a Thai girlfriend and then decide to marry her and they end up in all sorts of problems due to a lack of understanding of cultures. This is from both sides and is largely what this website is about because it makes me sad when I hear the horror stories about Thai girlfriends and Thai wives and their Farang husbands.

For example recently I read about 2 stories of Farang trying to commit suicide because of their Thai wife leaving them, one was a Swedish man and one was an Australian man and both of these incidents happened in Thailand.

I also found out some interesting statistics that show marriages between Thai and Farang are rising at about 10% every year and have been for the past 10 or 15 years in fact. This is positive news I think, even though the statistics also show that about 6% of divorces are intercultural marriages.

The statistics for divorce worldwide are quite  shocking really with the US at nearly 50% divorce rate for all marriages. Thailand at this stage is down the list at around 6% but………we have to be careful because this statistic is only for registered marriages and many Thai marriages are not registered at a district office…something I will talk more about in future post.

As I have said before I believe the divorce rates between Thai and Farang can be helped by having a better understanding between our cultures and taking more preventative approaches, something which I really hope this website and my service can help with.

So remember if you are considering having a Thai wife then try to get a good understanding first of how the cultural difference will affect the relationship, keep coming to this website for more information and tips and celebrate your differences.

Why thai girls make awesome wives – More than just a pretty face

By Andrew Thomason

Many people traveling to Thailand find the women there enchanting. In both physical beauty and emotional temperament, Thai women make for an increasingly attractive alternative to Western women as both girlfriends and wives. Why is this true?

First, let’s take physical appearance into consideration. Thai women have beautiful almond eyes, unblemished clear skin, and thin physiques. The unique geography of Thailand is conducive to a generally healthier appearance. The humid air helps to maintain clear pores. The fertile land aids in abundant healthy food, allowing everyone to eat natural food diets. In the West, the relatively expensive land makes agriculture more expensive and thus Westerner’s diets often consist of an excessive amount of carbohydrates which leads to being overweight and increases the incidence of diabetes.

Next, let us consider the emotional make up of the two types of women. In the West, the women’s lib women has positively resulted in greater independence for the gender. While this freedom is great for society, negative side effects can also come with the territory. For example, there is an increased tendency to argue between couples. This results in the United States having one of the highest divorce rates in the world, and increases each year. More divorces can typically be found during recessionary periods such as the one that the world is experiencing now due to the global financial institution crisis.

In Thailand, the society is strongly influenced by the pervasive Buddhist religion which is practiced by over 90% of the population. Buddhism endorses harmony, which translates into happier couples with less fighting. Buddhism is so ingrained within everyday society that tourists are often shocked to find monks wandering the streets and collecting their daily meals from total strangers. This is in stark contrast with Americans who are even afraid to eat their Halloween candy!

To find an awesome Thai woman, the best place to look is Thai online dating sites on the Internet. While your first inclination may be to check out nightclubs, you will find it frustrating to differentiate between the good and the bad. In one hour, you can introduce yourself to as many girls as you would in several weeks at nightclubs.

I moved to Thailand from the United States several years ago. After spending years going to nightclubs and meeting friends of friends, I finally tried meeting Thai girls online and had amazing results, both in quality and quantity.

Japkoo.com is a Thailand-based online dating site. Japkoo means ‘match’ in Thai. We exclusively cater to Thailand only to better focus on helping people to find their perfect match.

What you should know about having a Thai wife

So you have had a beautiful Thai girlfriend for a while and she is everything you could ever hope for in a woman because she is sweet, loving, beautiful, she cares for you and looks after you in a way you could only have dreamed of before.

And now you feel you have made the decision to make her your Thai wife and ask her to marry you.

You are fairly confident she will say yes because you are both so happy with each other and feel so much in love, it’s a beautiful thing and you can both only see a wonderful future together when she becomes your Thai wife and you live together.

Well, yes this is all very possible but there are a few things you should be ready for that will help make the wonderful life you hope for a reality and not full of misunderstandings and disappointment.

  1. Thai wife = the “Yes” wife! There is a lot of comments made by Western men about their Thai wives that they never say exactly what they want, that they just say “Yes” or “Ok” all the time. Thai people call this Greng Jai which basically means not wanting to upset and it can be extremely confusing and frustrating for western men because it can seem like they are hiding or do not want to be open. Nothing could be further from the truth, the reality is that it is part of Thai culture.
  2. Expect your kitchen to radically change!!! Food and cooking is deeply ingrained in Thai culture and your Thai wife is unlikely to be an exception. Don’t expect her to change her diet to a western diet just because she lies in the West. She will seek out all the foods she wants to eat and will soon have your kitchen converted from a nice tidy and minimalist Western man’s kitchen to a bustling, vibrant Asian kitchen with bottles of sauce and herbs you have never even heard of!! She will eat rice, fish and noodles for breakfast and almost everything will be spicy hot. This is her way and the best thing you can do is just accept and enjoy the experience of some of the most amazing culinary delights on the planet. ……Oh and you will need to get a rice cooker!!!
  3. Buddhism, Monks and Temples: Many Thai people follow Buddhism and believe in Karma and so your new Thai wife is very likely to do so also. This means she will want to find a Thai temple local to you and visit their once in a while. She will want to talk to the Buddhist monk ( who incidently… may well be English ..) and may well ask you to attend also. thai temple Nollamara WAYou will often find her paying respects to Buddha and saying prayers for all sorts of reasons at all times of the day and night. Again this is part of her way and culture. Buddhism is in fact a very relaxed religion, more of a philosophy really and may even find yourself being interested in it too.
  4. Marry her…Marry her Family too!!! Thai families are very close and like to stay in touch constantly. They also are very loyal to their families and believe in sharing, giving and taking care of each other, especially children taking care of older parents.. This leads many western men to feel as though they have married her family as well as her and can cause many problems if not understood correctly. This is also part of Buddhist belief too and so you will find it unlikely to disappear. Try to accept that this is born out of goodness and giving and a strong sense of family and community and that you are also welcome to be part of that. Try not to stand aside but just share and enjoy your new family and they will show you much respect and gratitude back.

This is just an overview of some of the main things that can cause problems but when accepted and understood correctly can in fact bring you closer together as well as enriching your life with a culture that is mainly about giving.

I hope you find this information useful in your beautiful relationship with your Thai wife.
