The other side?


Dear Hillary,

It always seems the same. Love struck young men marry the (bar)girl of their dreams and end up in the divorce courts. To make a relationship work (anywhere), companionship and being a true friend in today’s relationships, especially in Thailand, are much more important than your so called love. Love is only a thing that happens many times in life to most people. I have a wonderful Thai woman who I married after a three year relationship here in Thailand. They are wonderful women who care much more about happiness and the comfort of being taken care of, than the short time love one has to offer.


Dear Barry,

Thank you for showing the other side of the coin. If you can combine Love and Living you have a greater than 50 percent chance of success.

    Recently talked to a goofy Yank whose GF convinced him that marrying a Thai girl required speed stealth and secrecy….and lots of quick bribes…which he paid….now thinks his GF ‘might’ have spun him a tale. He tells me the family is pressuring him to pay a large bride price or ‘it’s off.’ These girls are like wolves and jackles, expert at picking off the weak.
