    • susiQ commented : It's kind of harsh to put the BARGIRLS so low like they're not worthy for anything. People make mistakes, choose wrong choice, have no choice, whatever their reasons may be. But people can turn around and change.No need a diploma or degree for that. Say, the girl is smart, educated,speaks good English but she breaks your heart, rips you off, cleans you out or dumps you, then she's a BITCH! A man from the US went to Thailand to visit his mother's homeland (Dad's white) fell in love with a Thai girl, married her & brought her over. After she got her green card, she left his sorry ass & went down to Florida to look for a job. Sure..she looked for a new man & never came back.

All of the bad things I have heard in Thailand I have seen here in the USA. I treat my wife very well but still now and then she goes over board on spending. As a family we go to to the Wat once a week. Maybe that is the reason for a strong marriage.[/quote:31j9hawr] Hello everyone I am Rick I lived in Florida, I'm 38 my wife is 34. I feel I have a good Marriage with my wife, we just had our 1 year anniversary, we have not had too many fights mostly bickering about her driving. I think our situation is a little different from other men who have married Thai ladies, I have 2 friends here in Florida, one married an Au pair the other I think met similar to the way my wife and I met which was through the net. I was introduced to Ning from a friend who was friends with her online. My wife and I started chatting in2004 around the time of the Tsunami. We continued our courtship online until I saved up 2 years and went to Thailand Sept 2006 the day after the coup. I had planed to Stay but with all the visa rules and family problems I came home and did a K1 visa. I recommend K3 to any one considering to do the K1. I lived in Chonburi near Bang Sean University for 5 months and dated my wife, met her parents went to Maha Sarakham stayed with the family for a week, took a bath out side,ate things I would not normally eat . Now my wife has been in US for one year, she has a job we are saving to go do our Thai wedding. I did build a new house for her family with an inside bathroom and sit down toilet. I do send money home every month until we go do the wedding. All these things I did not really want to do but I understand the custom, I speak some Thai, I taught myself to count to 1000 and say greetings and good byes before I went to Thailand. I have tried to be open minded through this deal, I can see where people think how these women are money hungry but I did not want to leave her mom and dad living in a shack with no income because I married the daughter who was an assistant accounting manager for a Japanese company. I lived poor but never that poor. I think it helps to try to know the culture, to try and understand the customs, and be open minded. My wife and I are taking care of my mother who has diabetes, my niece who has had 2 heart transplants and I can not drive because I had a stroke at 23 and lost some of my peripheral vision. My wife is kind giving I do not have any question about her love for me nor do I have a worry of her cheating. I think immigration has given us so many hoops to jump through she would not want to do it again. I took the time to get to know my wife and know her values, I wanted a good woman and I found one. I was introduced to a Nurse at the same time but all she wanted to do was come to the US and work as a Nurse so she could make money. Ning only wanted to know about me and my family. I dated a Filipina a year before my wife and she ran me in 12 thousand dollars of debt, and cheated on me with her boss while I baby sat her kids. I did not take the time to know her like I did with my wife. This is my good story so far.

    Baht too strong - urgently needs freedom to float

    By oldexplorer, Created on: 12/03/2009, Last updated on: 04/11/2015

    » As the massive Chinese economy begins a freefall descent in response to the Western financial collapse, the Abhisit government needs to assist Thai exports by allowing the Baht to float downwards. Keeping the Baht slavishly locked to the US Dollar is short-sighted, and will simply make Thai exports...

    • faranginkorat commented : I don't understand how this thread ever got off the ground. I have skim-read all responses and don't see anywhere anybody noting that the THB has not been pegged to anything since 1997. It has been floating for 12 years+. It has strengthened in relation to other currencies for completely comprehensible reasons. Compare %GDP growth rates, government deficits and growth rates of those deficits, balance of trades, etc., and there are good reasons for the strengthening of the THB and recent comparative weakening of the GBP, US$, and Euro. Personally, I think a 7-8% GDP growth rate country running a positive trade balance and having had the "baby-boom" after 1975 is a pretty good place to invest. I occassionally do family balance sheets in both US$ and THB. The dollars have increased nicely this year due to the strengthening of the THB. I don't know if we are better off for it, that depends on what the money gets spent on as some things have become expensive recently (gold for example) and some have become cheap (houses, Harley-Davidsons, and motor-homes in Florida for examples). However, it is perfectly clear that we are better off than somebody else who started with the same amount of wealth 2 years ago and kept it in the USA.

    Do You Support Your Thai In-Laws?

    By Anonymous, Created on: 02/03/2006, Last updated on: 14/02/2007

    » In Thailand, children take care of their parents. They kind of pay back the debt that they contracted just by being born and educated by their parents. And contrary to "popular" belief, it is valid whether you are rich or poor (but of course far more meaningful if the parents are poor...)....

    • Anonymous commented : Are you going to receive full benefit at 60 y/o? It seems at 65 y/o would be a retirement age. Do you have sufficient saving? Yes, you will Thai ID and residence registry to buy a place for yourself if you have not own a place already. However, you still want to travel between Thailand and USA. Therefore, you will need to keep your passport and Florida ID. You need to use the address of one of your child for permanent resident and for banking and government mailing address. You need to transfer your money to well known international bank like Chase or some other US banks with branch in Thailand. You will need to ask for your social security check to be direct deposited to this US bank saving account. You will only need an ATM card to withdraw money from this account at any ATM machines in Thailand. You need another Thai Bank separate saving account and ATM card; this account should be as Thai citizen using your Thai ID card. You will need US passport for travel in and out of USA. It is a downside since it means that you have to get Thai residency visa that could be renew in Thailand or at Thai Consulate in USA. If you do not wish to return to USA at all, you can use Thai Passport to enter Thailand so you would not have to get Thai residency visa. US passport only allowed you to stay in Thailand for 30 days without visa. However, renewal is no problem thru travel agency or at immigration for small fee. I think you can get up to 2 years residency visa before renew again for Thai bornt. My parents are old and does not want to travel to USA again so they entered Thailand as Thai citizens. All of their financial matters are bring handled by my sisters in USA. They initially traveled every 2 to 3 years between Thailand and USA. After awhile, they settled down and stop travel. They knew more people now like old friends and families to do things together in Thailand.

    • Anonymous commented : Rad, I am sorry you are having trouble. With out actualy speaking to you I can not comment about the accent. Most Americans feel no ill will to most immigrants. All our people came from them, even the Native Americans have only been here 10,000 years. The people you hang out with have things they like to talk about. If you are interested in fitting in, try to learn what they like. Maybe favorite TV shows or such. I do not think it would be better in Canada, maybe just a different part of the US. On the Florida Gulf coast around Pensacola and Fort Walton Beach there are many Thais and other Asians. I do not think I have ever heard of a problem. Except when the immigrants can not speak English, it gets very tiring trying to carry on a conversation. So if you speak fairly good English and try to assimilate in, you should get along.

    • Anonymous commented : I guess I do not get it. If you are looking for people that care about your culture and want to talk about your culture, why didn't you just stay in your culture? When I go to Thailand, I am doing every thing I can to learn their culture, not give lessons on my culture. I f I were to move to Thailand and waned to speak English and talk about the US, I would go down where the tourist were, I would not get mad at the people Nomg Khai because they did not want to learn about Florida.

    • Anonymous commented : Rad. Do you known that Canada has socialized healthcare system like in Thailand? If you are not comfortable in Thailand or in Idaho, Idaho is in the American heartland. These people do not give a nutcracker about foreigners. In their views, foreigners came to USA because Americans and America are better than their own homelands. Canada is more rural than USA unless you are living in the urban area, and Canada is many times colder than USA. It seemed like you are a urbanited person. You might considering finding American urban area with high population of Asians like Chineses and Vietnameses. San Francisco is an example beside New York, Houston, or Hawaii. US west coast cities will have the highest Chineses, Vietnameses, and Japaneses. Thais are mostly highest in LA, NY, and Florida.
