    Guess marrying an Issan lady is liking betting on a horse. High stakes though. I read the same article; but have friends in Udon who are blissfully happy.

    For now

    Not a risk. Only if you're not familiar with the horse. Or if one is not cabable of seeing the horse as it really is. Good study might be your best friend. No more dangerous than choosing a 'Farang' horse. Cheers.

    Except Farang without money has no attraction for Thai gf. Better bet is a horse.

    Agreed. I don't think I would have got off so lightly with a european wife.

    Beyond all of the myths, stereotypes, and stigmas about Thai ladies 'chasing' Farang or the same ideals of golddigging and hooking Farang. The security factor plays a part for sure.......I know quite a number of Thai girls/women that don't want anything to do with Thai guys. They've either know what these jokers are really about or they've had bad experiences with them. Same old story: drink too much, lazy cocksuckers, chow chuu, etc.

    ^I remember reading in the Nation a while ago about the results of a study about what made women in Isaarn marry a foreigner, if they were happy with them and what the main advantage/characteristic trait of her husband vs. thai is..
    And the number one reason for prefering a Farang was stability of relationship/fidelity.
    I don't remember if financial security reasons was the 2nd or 3rd point but I do agree that most women not only in Isaarn consider thai men as extremely unfaithful. Can't say I disagree, as I once asked my gf if she has just one friend who hasn't been cheated by her boyfriend (prostitutes don't count). And she had to admit that she hasn't. Talking about Chiang Mai/Bkk middle class.
    But back to your point, is it personal observation or why do you think Isaarn ladies are abandoning their farang husbands ?

    As for Thai women only marrying for the money... well we all know money plays a part in any relationship. My Thai wife begs me to stay home more, work less. She knows this'll mean we have less money.

    Any stereotype we make about either Thai men or women should be taken with a grain of salt. As smart and perceptive as we think we are, I think we generally don't understand them all that well. And vice versa.

    Very sensible and fair post, hit the nail on the head as to stereotype people is absolute bolliks and never paints the true picture.

    Every person and relationship is unique, Peterpan also has wrapped it up in one.

    Indeed. The financial aspect plays just as well in Farang-Farang relationships. Easy to suggest that there might be the same percentage of Western women that are born of golddiggers/hook cloth as SE Asian might be. Look at Russia and Latin America. It's an industry. This seed has been planted and perpetuated as we perceive the long-historied stereotypes that have been caste upon this gender population. It's this high percentage of prostitution/bargirls/golddiggers perception in Thailand that instinctively suggest that all Thai girls are of this nature.

    Have to agree.
    There was also an article in one of the British broadsheets stating that one of the first casualties of the credit crunch were the marriages of business execs to trophy wives with the wives filing for divorce in ever increasing numbers as the execs become ex-execs and their bank accounts becoming far less attractive

    I read a comment by a Thai judge in the Bangkok Post regarding the rise in divorces by Thais to Farangs. He said it had a lot to do to the unrealistic expectations of the wives. They expected a more lavish lifestyle than what they were living. Many Thais think all Farangs are rich.

    And there's another stereotype! Unfortunately it's one which is extremely common.

    I had one girl, not a bar-girl, ask me for 20,000 baht because 'you farang, you have money'.

    I told her I didn't have a car so by that token she should give me hers.

    The original question...maybe time has passed and knowing the property is in wifes name thus securing her families future without needing the Farang anymore.

    Most likely the Farang did not appeal physically, and could be many years older but was the key to a new house....not a nice or secure feeling but seems a pattern forming.

    About 6 years ago I divorced my first Thai wife after living near Kap Choeng for 8 years..I divorced her...and she also had 100 rai just outside Khao Yai National park. so she was a rich bitch. Not all Isaan girls are poor..and not all leave you when your money is gone.. and she put up with all my drinking and whoring..regards the poster who had some beautific view of communal rice harvesting...yep for 3 months you are correct...but for the other 9 months?????

    why you want to get married . i can see no advantage to it and it is a lot easier to leave if not married. as i have heard before never buy or invest in anything you can not afford to walk away from.

    Lol....I get a bit tired of seeing all the threads bemoaning and streotyping Thai women. Puleeze...can any man really say he understands a woman from his own country? That's nigh unto impossible, then to confidently state the motivations of a foreign woman? Seriously, women are from another planet entirely and foreign women from another galaxy. There's just no way to say jack about any woman with confidence.

    Ok, what about this. It seems to me that the biggest profit a Thai girl makes is at the beginning of the fraud, solly relationship.
    Early on in the marriage or relationship is when the farang buys the land, the house, the car etc. After this the big money items that are going into her name stop, and life become sort of normal. This is the time to get a new farang. The new farang can buy more land cos he doesn't know she already has some. A new car cos she sold the old one as so as farang no1 was fcked off and another house, mama and papa are living in the old one. And so the cycle continues.

    Yes I have seen this happen with a Dutch guy who bought a house that his new GF was allready living in, it was her first Dutch husband paid for the land and built the place.

    I'm actually lucky cos Laosy is, well, Laotian and also can't own anything here. I have built her a house in Laos and consider that money burned already. Now it comes to light, in the last month, that she owns 70 rai up there. Buddha alone knows where she got the money from. Think prostitution used to pay better than it does today.

    In any relationship, it is useful to remember that a partner should be your friend as well as your lover. You should respect each other, and just occasionally, it is a good idea for the man to say No.

    Rule of thumb. Don't marry a prossy. Laosy never was a prossy in the true sense of the word. She did the same as the bank staff in Nana at the weekends, but she did as sure as fck dump her first husband when the dough ran out.

    Cool Spread it around

    Mrs. CQFarmer likes to spread the funds around; lots of it to labourers and tractor drivers. I am sure she is just trying to support the rural economy. So far we have always made a loss on all of the tapioca that we have sold, but we have the prettiest fields.
    Mama and Papa of Mrs. CQF will enjoy a better house when ever it gets finished. Had to lift it out of the water and move the whole house to higher ground. Mrs CQF has new dreams every day to make it a better place to live. Now we are spreading the money around to builders and builders' suppliers.
    Best advice I ever read was to have income, but not capital; Mrs CQF is doing her best with my savings, I wonder if we can live on my pension?
    Do I need a divorce?
