    Question Changing age for marriage to foreigner?

    Hello, this is my first post. It is concerning age variations between Thais and farang.

    Has anyone ever heard of a legal age woman changing her age on her "paperworks" in order to be married to a significantly older farang?

    I will greatly value any input or experience anyone has with this.

    Thanks

    Year of birth is on the ID card. Thais take those pretty seriously, and i cannot see anyway it would be possible to change this.

    Also, as far as i am aware there is no "differential age" law in thailand, so if the woman is clearly of adult status, no need to do it.

    I would look for another, less obvious thing going on, as there is clearly something not legitimate going on.

    Be very careful.

    The OP might be wanting to marry an underage girl. That's my understanding of it.

    Op says legal age woman.

    There are considerations when talking about someone under 18 though. But i have no interest in giving input if that is the case.

    Maybe op would like to clarify?

    Perhaps his fiance told him she was 21. Then when they married, he saw the real date of birth on the paperwork, 35. Wife made a lame excuse to cover the little white lie.

    Negative on the underage, as stated a legal age woman, allegedly falsifys all her documents to appear older, obtain new Thai and thus foreign documents after marrying an older faring. This seems very bizarre to me as well, but with all things Thai, not completely ot of the question. Just trying to find anyone who has heard of any such foolishness as this.

    Unless I could be convinced otherwise by some miracle of proof. I am to understand I have been had and move on. We had a great run and she really introduced me to all things Thai and issan.

    My MiL is actually 2 years older in real age to the date on her ID card. All due to being born in the backwoods before computers came into use and education became compulsory.

    How ya doing, Bakah... hey, it's a long shot.. but does your nickname refer to "bugger" in Japanese?

    My wife always says that... usually when I joke with her..

    Anyway, welcome to the board mate :-)

    The only reason I can see for doing as you have stated is to better her chances if she wanted to move or visit your homeland. There seems to be some discrimination when it comes to very young ladies trying to obtain foreign visas to be with their much older boyfriend. The answer is usually NO by either side of immingration, especially if it is a Thai lady

    Welcome to TD..

    ^Seems to me it totally depends on whether you enjoy being with her or not. If so, why ditch a winner because she misrepresented her age (albeit by a decade)?

    In some countries, men actually do marry women close to their own age. Seems to work out ok.

    Mind you, I've never tried it myself, but there is considerable documentation of same age marriages.

    Young ladies being refused visas, yes. Changing their age? Many Thais do not tell their true age and foreigners do the same, but I don't know how you would accomplish that legally without an official birth certificate.

    Money can pretty much get anything done in Thailand. Or, she will pocket the money, if it is not hers, and say the plan failed.

    I was thinking the same; if the lady is nice and you wanna be together being a bit older, a bit more mature, a bit more interesting, isn't a bad thing at all. &, btw, before you start saying something like "but she lied to me...", welcome to Planet Thailand. Oh, and even though I'm far more honest than 95% of the arseholes on this board, I sometimes don't tell my wife 100% of the truth, and I doubt any husband or wife on Planet Earth has ever done so...

    Now, of more importance, when she was getting her name changed on her ID cards, did she get any other details changed at the same time???

    How do I post these pictures???

    That's not true, as far as I'm aware. Name change is common. People going through a bad spell name change to break the cycle of bad luck.

    There was (allegedly) a name change involved as well.
    I do appreciate her maturity greatly. Perhaps I just have mear noi on the brain. I have told her to give me some time to think about it. Perhaps cooler heads will prevail. Alternatively she actually did get this done back in the day and everybody's happy. The latter I won't believe until I see actual proof or hear more stories of this happening.

    Let me go back a little ways here. When I had originally met her she didnt tell me she had a husband. Who she is still married to though seperated. She did not tell me she had a son whom she had when she was "15" (quite common yes) these factors combined with the potential age issue create a shitstorm in my head, and I often think that I could do much better for myself.
