    As usual, you are wrong.
    Those wiki pages aren't stacking up too well compared to the knowledge of a native and of someone who's lived there for decades...

    How surprising...

    My wife is a Filipina. We were married in a civil ceremony in a judge's office - 20 minutes. No Catholic church crap ever mentioned.

    That was 26 years ago.
    My wife is Thai, we got married in Las Vegas and went and gambled after and later ate at one of those throw down restaurants with no prices on the menu at the Bellagio. She had the 5lb Live main lobster dinner. As far as I see it, she ate her Sin Sot. The 5lb lobster was $166, dinner for 2 of us was $350 including the booze.. .

    But really the dinner was free, I won $1480 playing 3 card poker.

    Isaan village?

    There'd be a big meeting for the bride and the parents and whoever else of 'influence' in the village, possibly even the mamasan. They'll all sit down and the one topic will be ''how much cash/gold can we get from this arsehole''

    You can blame all the pussy whipped farang twats of the past for setting the ''bar'' (get it?) too high thus fucking it up for all future genuine (or not) unisons.

    Not true at all, Davis.

    The giving of a dowry was very much a western concept which, as a cursory examination of Victorian literature will illustrate, underpinned holy matrimony right up to the early 20th C and in fact can be traced back to the 12th C in England. The instrument of the 'settlement' upon marriage was drawn up and sealed by lawyers before the event and formed the basis of a contract which dictated the disposition of assets, notably property, upon the marriage and very much safeguarded a family's wealth and made provision for the wife upon the death of her husband.

    In fact, in early times the exchange of contracts/promises concerning wealth disposition WAS the marriage ceremony subsequently consummated by cohabitation.

    Love might have introduced them but it was dosh that sealed the knot.

    ^I said it "is" not a western concept - I didn't say it never was. Of course it once was. As I said...antiquated and needless.

    Around here the price of an introduction to a farang is 50,000 Baht. No guarantees. A woman just doesn't have that kind of money laying around. So it's scrounged off of someone. That money has to be repaid. So there's not much chance of the ignorant seeing his sin sot returned to him post wedding.
    Plus there's all the gambling debts to be paid for and a few beers for her Thai boyfriend/husband who'll want paying off.

    ^
    It means they pay 50,000 for the introduction/meeting. If it doesn't materialise into marriage then there's no refund.

    There was a German that used to do it a few K's away who charged 35,000 but made extra doing airport pick up and drop off.

    Did the German get the money or did it have to be shared out?

    surely that's what the internet's for nowadays?

    The German first of all lets ladies in the area know he does introductions. The ladies know how much he charges and are quite happy to pay.

    I forget how he actually did/does it but I recall the ladies pay a deposit. He then gets the ladies to pick a German speaking farang on the likes of Thai Cupid, or some other free contact site.

    He then contacts that person and breaks the ice for the lady cus chances are slim she'll speak no German. Once contact has been made he then sets it up where they'll both speak on Skype at his house. If she's happy she keeps going back to his house periodically to set up a meet. The rest of the money can be paid on installments.

    The farang doesn't pay the German anything as far as I know. There must be money to be made as quite a few Germas pass through here.

    Sounds like a pretty good scam.
    I think I'd like to charge the falang something as well though. Just to be fair

    I know there's a woman from our village resident in Switzerland who, for 20,000, will set up a get together between Swiss blokes and local girls/women.
    Same thing in reverse I suppose.

    Then it's up to the girl to raise the money to get the visa and travel.
    The kindly lady will help with all this, for a fee.

    In theory the girl then gets hitched and returns with elderly Swiss bloke in tow and a life of luxury.

    One woman, a friend of my wife, did this and dumped the Swiss bloke within 6 months of returning.
    She took him for a shed load of money but told him to seek recompense from the "agent" or "fixer" in Switzerland who'd completely mislead her as to the blokes suitability.

    I met him and, it's got to be said, he was a right little cnut.

    She, our friend, reckoned she came out even in the end.

    Swiss bloke wandered of down south somewhere. At least he still had his pension.

    Pretty sordid business.

    I don't think I'd call it a scam. The German is just asking for the going rate. The Thai lady can pay or walk.

    I personally think that the asking price is too much. And I was thinking of doing the same thing for free, to help women who couldn't afford to pay. But then I thought how guilty I'd feel if she ripped the farang off.

    Agreed, but I'd also feel pretty bad if the bloke turned out to be a cnut.
