One thing you certainly need to know is that

Thai Girls keen to marry a European
Gentleman who more-often than not
are several years older than themselves?
The reason a large age span is acceptable
is often very personal to the girls and I hate to
generalize, but if I have to do so then there are several
commonly accepted reasons that Thai girls date and/or marry
foreigners so much older than themselves.
Stability, Both Financial and in the
First of all, what you have to realise is
that many of the Thai girls are looking for stability, both
financial and in the relationship.
Older foreign men are typically able to
provide both. They are in general financially well off,
especially by Thai standards and this is viewed as a
They are also more settled and less prone
to wander than their Thai counterparts.
Add to that the western cultural ideal of
monogamy and they become even more attractive to Thai women
who are used to seeing Thai men that are promiscuous and
prone to having mistresses.
Thai’s also value white skin very much and
in fact those with darker skin are perceived to be of a
lower class in Thai society.
Typically children of Thai/western
marriages tend to be much lighter skinned and thus more
accepted in society. The Thai’s even have a name for such
children of mixed parentage which is ‘Luk Kreung’ and
literally means ‘child half”.
You’ll find many famous Thai actors; pop
stars and models are ‘Luk Kreung’.
Thai Tradition of Arranged
One aspect that is often overlooked by
westerners is that traditionally Thai marriages are
often arranged by parents, not on the basis of love, but for
mutual benefits between the families such as a property tie
up or business merger.
Westerners don’t understand this type of
arranged marriage and often don’t consider this aspect
Thai culture yet it is very ingrained and
accepted in Thailand.
Because of this Thai women can sometimes
view their bodies as property (Thai men view them this way
as well which is a reason Thai women don’t care for Thai
men) and as such have no problem using it to gain a better
social or financial standing.
In the beginning the Thai girl may not
even like her husband much, but over time a love and mutual
respect grows. As the two get to know each other better an
assimilation of each others culture begins to occur and the
bonds between a Thai woman and her foreign husband can grow
Just accept it as a God
It’s good to understand these dynamics
better, but I think we older western guys should just be
thankful for our beautiful Thai ladies and not question too
much. After all, it sure beats the

What Do I Need To Know About Thai
Thai marriage ceremonies between Buddhists
are generally divided into two parts:
1. A Buddhist
component, which includes the recitation of prayers and
the offering of food and other gifts to monks and images
of the Buddha
2. A non-Buddhist
component rooted in folk traditions, which centres on
the couple's family.
Former Traditions You need to
In former times, it was unknown for
Buddhist monks to be present at any stage of the marriage
ceremony itself. This is because monks were required to
attend to the dead during funerals, their presence at a
marriage (which was associated with fertility, and intended
to produce children) was considered a bad
A couple would seek a blessing from their
local temple before or after being married, and might
consult a monk for astrological advice in setting an
auspicious date for the wedding.
The non-Buddhist portions of the wedding
would take place away from the temple, and would often take
place on a separate day.
In modern times, these prohibitions have
been significantly relaxed. It is not uncommon for a visit
to a temple to be made on the same day as the non-Buddhist
portions of a wedding, or even for the wedding to take place
within the temple.
While a division is still commonly
observed between the "religious" and "secular" portions of a
wedding service, it may be as simple as the monks present
for the Buddhist ceremony departing to take lunch once their
role is complete.
During the Buddhist component of the
wedding service, the couple first bow before the image of
They then recite certain basic Buddhist
prayers or chants typically including taking The Thai dowry
system which is known as the 'Sin Sodt'.
Parents of the couple may then be called
upon to 'connect' them, by placing upon the heads of the
bride and groom twin loops of string or thread that link the
Offerings to the
The couple may then make offerings of
food, flowers, and medicine to the monks present. Cash gifts
(usually placed in an envelope) may also be presented to the
temple at this time.
The monks may then unwind a small length
of thread that is held between the hands of the assembled
They begin a series of recitations of Pali
scriptures intended to bring merit and blessings to the new
The string terminates with the lead monk,
who may connect it to a container of water that will be
'sanctified' for the ceremony.
Merit is said to travel through the string
and be conveyed to the water; a similar arrangement is used
to transfer merit to the dead at a funeral, further evidence
of the weakening of the taboo on mixing funerary imagery and
trappings with marriage ceremonies.
Blessed water may be mixed with wax
drippings from a candle lit before the Buddha image and
other unguents and herbs to create a 'paste' that is then
applied to the foreheads of the bride and groom to create a
small 'dot', similar to the marking sometimes made with red
ochre on Hindu devotees.
The bride's mark is created with the butt
end of the candle rather than the monk's thumb, in keeping
with the Vinava prohibition against touching
The highest-ranking monk present may elect
to say a few words to the couple, offering advice or
The couple may then make offerings of food
to the monks, at which point the Buddhist portion of the

What is a
The Thai dowry system is known as the 'Sin
Sodt'. Traditionally, the groom will be expected to pay a
sum of money to the family, to compensate them and to
demonstrate that the groom is financially capable of taking
care of their daughter.
Sometimes, this sum is purely symbolic,
and will be returned to the bride and groom after the
wedding has taken place
