    A Conflict of Interest?

    I am not too familiar with Buddhism other than it seems to be based on large dose of karma, (making merit) mixed with a lot of peaceful stuff and some pretty impressive temples.
    Does the fact that my GF is Buddhist, conflict with her going out with a dumb farang nearly 20 years older than her, or is she just making big merit?

    I think she did very bad things last life, so this life she has to endure her bad luck with men with dignity and do lots of tambun and pray that next life she gets me instead of you.

    If you are not married and she is having sex with you then she is breaking one of the 5 precepts. And so are you. Disgusting

    Can anyone enlighten me on the 5 precepts?
    As it seems likely i could be missing out on trouser snake action, i might as well do some reading.

    I had a brush once (or twice) with a Thai lady despite my being married to another lady. This is well documented and is the reason I joined Teakdoor in the first place.

    The Thai lady was well into Buddha and such so I took it upon myself to find out all about it. It turns out that it is not just about burning joss sticks so that you can win the lottery.

    I found that I had already broken most (if not all) of the 5 precepts so my soul is permanently fucked (not the proper term). I decided at this stage that Buddism is not for me and decided to continue with Hedonism.

    Oh my, I've once breached precept 2 for being able to make a pretty girl completely breach precept 5 because I fancied breaching precept 3 with her. I wouldn't have broken precept 2 mind you, but breaking precept 4 alone wouldn't work

    edit: Fortunately she breached precept 1 later so I still don't have any siblings.

    Apparently you break Precept 1 by eating meat. So thats me buggered

    Precept 2 I broke by copying Spectrum games. Piracy is theft

    Precept 3 - sex outside of marriage. Check

    Precept 4 - I guess that means lying. Check

    Precept 5 - Do not take intoxicants. Check

    So i guess that most Thais forget all those and just go for the 'win the lottery by burning joss sticks and sticking gold foil' school of Buddhism

    Thanks to Slimboyfat, porf and rubbajohnny, i am now enlightened. It's not that different to the nonsense i was raised with. 10 commandos and all that stuff.

    and thanks to kingwilly for the quaint turn of phrase

    Looks like i'll be joining you in Hedonism slimboy. Is that anywhere near Bangkok?

    I've always thought that Buddhism was the best of a bad lot (all religions), but, I find it a rather cold and selfish religion.
    Buddhists are quite open about the reasons for doing good deeds; it's for the selfish reason that they will move closer to Nirvana. Anything bad that happens to good people can be dismissed as Karma. Any unfairness, or, injustice can be dismissed as Karma. It seems to promote inertia rather than change the world to be a better place.

    Fek, I hope she ain't 12 yrs old, or you'll have PB and Lily after your ass. Besides many other TDers.

    YOU didn't kill it, it was already dead so surely you'd get off on a technicality.

    so what is "sexual misconduct " ?

    giving a woman a DJpatting ?

    dancing with butterflies ?

    or CMN jerking off to goats in crotchless burkas porn while his mother in law watches ?

    as opposed to doing good so you can go to heaven etc etc?

    all religions are about living a decent life; unfortunately, all religions become corrupted and distorted

    If you are 20 years her senior most people will know exactly what your relationship is about, she and the family will tolerate you as a security.

    The thought of PB and Lilly after my ass............. not sure whether to be scared or excited!

    No worries on that score Jet, she is 34.

    The age difference was a bit of a concern at first, but i am such a hansum man i don't think she notices it. At 34 she has been round the block a few times so i'm ok with it, and as to what others might think......... stuff em, a bird in the hand etc....

    I'd go with the latter.

    Changing my original quote ....... is she just making big merit is very clever.
