Broke American Man Complains He Can’t Afford Dowry For Young Thai Girlfriend

Recommended Posts

I'm still confused. 
You say they're already married in the USA.
How the hell did she get a visa to do that in the first place?!?
I really don't get it. 
Exactly! My Thai wife's thoughts exactly to be precise! 555

I don't know the price of buffalos but a $1500 dowry is quite reasonnable. I understand the girl is worried if he cannot afford it.

This was painful to watch on so many levels.

But it also makes me appreciate my gf even more. No "cultural" gold digging BS from her, nor her parents. Ever.

The only denial comes from yourself. 99.99% of the women in the west would not settle with someone much older for the financial stability.....  not even the hardcore prostitutes. The rest of your post that I cut off is very contradictory with this very paragraph on so many levels. Like someone said.... save if for the Guardian :sleepy:

 

It is easy to philosophize from Thailand where many women live in absolute poverty and have no other choice. Women with money in Thailand will certainly not settle for someone like yourself. 

 

Just a bit of honesty here..... ok?

 

 

 

 

 

 

You confirmed my theory. Most live in a constant state of denial.

A dowry is strictly speaking the transfer of property or money from the bride's family and is payable to the groom.Now that would set the cat among the pigeons if interpreted in its proper sense in Thailand.

maybe your right but the practice should be more like...parents keep the money. When there is a big need or even a divorce, the money can go to the bride.

All she talks about is money and "support me" etc.  Bad sign from the start.

Loneliness can really distort ones common sense I guess.

Then again it sounds more like a business negotiation/haggling then getting married.

It is a good thing that David came along and laid claim to this young lady (although I don't understand why).

It means that there will be one less in the minefield for the next guy to worry about.
