Mixed Marriages in Thailand

I arrived in Thailand after there had already been decades of cheap long-haul travel and Western films (or even Thai films involving Westerners), so it is hard for me to know what it used to be like.

However, the subject of Thai attitudes to mixed marriages is an interesting one to me because I am a European married to a Thai woman.

In general, things are done to raise the status of the family in Thailand and since wealth and profession, which is based on education, are very important factors in determining status, any additions to the family, especially husbands, need to bring something to the table.

White foreigners (farang or falang in Thai), are acceptable husbands to ordinary working-class girls and their families. I should imagine that this is because the falang has more money than they do. Many Thai women say that falang men are kinder and more tolerant than Thai men, but I don't know about that, because Thais don't wash their dirty linen in public.

Having said all that, most falang that I have ever met in Thailand are only moderately well-off (maybe because they have just sold their house and get a pension), but they are still richer than most Thais. However, there is a dowry to be paid for a bride in most cases and this sorts the wheat from the chaff.
