Success Story

Recommended Posts

While reading a sad topic about "farang man marrying a working girl and losing house and land" I noticed an input from "manchester" drawing attention to the fact that we only ever see the disaster stories.

So I thought I would start this topic and see where it goes.

July 2004 I retired to the island of Koh Samui, then unfortunately in August 2004 I became very ill with an extremely bad chest infection. I booked myself into one of the local international hospitals for a couple of nights until I got over the worst. Anyway I had the most gorgeous nurse to look after me on the first day and I could not stop thinking about her the rest of the time I was in there, so much so that when I was discharged I went looking for her and asked her out, not expecting her to say yes, but she did.

We ended up living together for two and a half years and then got married in Febuary this year.

The term "soul mates" does not come close. We enjoy life together so much, like all the same things ie...food...films...music...dancing...and laugh...we cry because we laugh so long sometimes. We have a house in Samui but are moving up to Nong Ki in Isaan next year, where my wife already has three rye of land that we are going to build a small house on.

When I got divorced after 28 years of a reasonably happy marriage in UK I never dreamed that I could find happiness like this, and for those of you that look for the worst....She was not married before, has no kids and has made it clear to all her family that they are not in for a free ride.

I truly believe that I could not find anyone that I would rather spend the rest of my life with.

If there are any residents of Nong Ki reading this and want to get together some time for a drink after I move up there then get in touch.

Apologies for such a long topic. Happy Larry

:o

Welcome to ThaiVisa, Larry, and thank you for your upbeat post.

Perhaps like with newspapers, on ThaiVisa often only bad news, ie problems and such, get reported. I am sure there is a great majority of happily married farang in Thailand without the least problem or worry.

Congratulations on your having found the love of your live, and best wishes.

Yes, it is nice to hear from someone who is happy. And you will get the naysayers and the doom predictors, but never mind them. Life is to be enjoyed while you've got it. Good luck to you and your wife.

BTW, perhaps this would be better off in the general forum as it doesn't actually have much to do with housing or land ownership? Up to you, let us know if you'd like it moved :o

Excellent story, Larry, thanks for sharing.

Don't blame you for thinking about being laughed at, considering the nature of some of the posters here - but I think you have already discovered that there are a great number (if not a majority) of members who will appreciate your contribution.

My Thai wife has for over twenty years been my complete sweet dream

So good-so loyal and so honest.

The best person I ever met in ths world.

I love her to bits and am completely depemdant on her since we moved to live in Thailand

She is now over 40 but to me still the most beautiful woman I ever saw.

I am so glad that I found a true love

I have no worris regarding Thai laws-what is in her name is mine also
