    Can Two Non-Thais Get Married in Thailand?

    A friend of mine, an "American, has a long-time filipina girl friend, both living on extended visas, and they are thinking of getting married here. Is that possible? Suppose they later decide to get divorced. Can they do THAT here?

    Don't know about the married part, but I (American) divorced my first wife (American) in Thailand. Probably can get married...we were married in a Bangladeshi civil ceremony.

    I believe legal ceremonies all over the world are recognised all over the world, except perhaps for SSM in countries that don't recognise SSM.
    Dissolution of marriage may not be universal and may require legalities in the country of marriage.

    Yes.

    My american friend married his Asian (non-Thai) wife in Bangkok. They also live outside of Thailand.
