After seen so many cases, I can only deduced is that there is always a slight possibility that the thaiger might just one day go back to her thaiguy even no matter how much she may had loved us sg guys.

She can/may sleep with you, tell you her secrets & share her sadness & joys but eventually one day she will prefer thai guys.

I had one case which involved my close friend just like that, he was more rich and def more handsome than his thaiger's ex bf was in short pudgy & poor plus enjoyed inflicting domestic violence agnst femme.

In short my friend provided everything she needed for the past few years and planned to settle down marry all in bkk only to one day have that dream smashed up right in front of his face when the ungrateful thing crept back secretly to her ex bf and slept back with him.

The fun part was the affair was exposed dramatically by another mutual friend who coincidentally bumped into the cheating couple while holidaying in her hometown.
Plainly speaking, your friend isn't the first and won't be the last.

Wife's friend married a loving Caucasian man who loved her and her son from a previous marriage. He provided everything to her and her parents, and had a son with him. Lived a comfortable life but she gave it all up by returning to Thailand permanently and started an affair with a Thai guy. Now short of money, she moved to Phuket to be a working lady of the night.

We all hear horror stories but in this thread, you also hear success stories where guys have found their life partners and have settled happily.

Would you share these success stories with your friends who are thinking of a having a relationship with a Thai girl or will you only share the bad?

Will you only deem us success stories only when we are dead in the ground together, holding hands?

1. Do I care what people think, parents, friends, relatives?
2. Can I take the long distance relationship?
3. Can I support her if she is given a LTSVP where she cannot work?
4. Is my partner open and honest with me?
5. Can I trust her and the same with me?

Just like in all relationships, open your eyes and weigh the risks. I am not saying that you will have a successful relationship or not with a Thai girl. But it is the same with all relationships, regardless of nationality. It is more difficult with someone from a different culture and language. Understand, appreciate, evaluate.

Oops, sorry for the long post. Cold and boring day in the office.

sawadeee krap to all.

i'm also having a thai wife, and waiting to take over my resale flat.

just wondering why are you guys so looking forward to work in thailand?
Maybe the change of culture, the prospect of a new challenge?

The biggest difficulty for me was and still is the language. After working for a while over there (2+ mths) for a project, I do appreciate the efficiency of Singapore when I returned here.

I won't want to live in Thailand to work, but as retirement, maybe.

Actually I will like to clarify on the ability of your wife to work in Singapore while on LTVP (not LTVP+).

Wives on LTVP can apply for jobs in Singapore as long as the employer is willing to apply for the Work Permit. My wife was previously on this scheme before she received her PR.

- Employer applies for WP
- LTVP gets "converted" to the duration of the WP (2 years is the norm)
- Employer does not need to pay worker's levy, and it does not count towards their quota

It's actually very attractive for employers to hire LTVP holders - no worker's levy, no cpf i.e.

In addition to that, I strongly believe that if you wife have a job, it will help towards her PR application - being able to support herself, as well as contributing to the economy

Good to hear the clarification.

Cheers!

I'm not keen to work in thailand, unless there's not much changes to my salary

I am looking forward to possible early retirement there though!

This story is nothing new. You can find many news stories of foreigners mostly ang moh married to their thai wives getting murdered either for their money by the thai wife's lover or the family or getting cheated and made penniless after they bought property for their wives. Its not uncommon at all. Take the story of this guy called dale henry bought everything for his wife and family and gave them money etc but in the end still got murdered by the wife and her lover.

In fact i think your friend is actually lucky he did not end up marrying her at all.

You remember the story of a singaporean or a singaorean PR i think he murdered his wife's lover at his condo and the lover was the thai driver it was also captured on cctv and the news was also posted on this forum.

Best advice to all is if possible better not to really marry one, you want to get involved with one for company & sex pls go ahead but perm marriage & life companionship is a big doubt.

if i am not wrong, ltvp count towards the quota, and ltvp+ doesn't.

requirement for ltvp+ is either 3 years in sg or with a singapore born child from the couple.

ltvp+ holder require a approval letter from mom before she is allow to find a job.

may i ask how long did your wife wait to get her pr? and what's her qualification? with child?

Quote from MOM website:
If they are a spouse or unmarried child of the sponsor, there is no need for foreign worker levy to be paid. Their employment will not be counted towards the company's dependency quota. They do not need to be from an approved source country.

My wife received her PR 3 years after our marriage (2nd application).
She completed high school, we have no children.

A 42-year-old Canadian engineer stabbed a 59-year-old Thai lawyer 50 times after he caught him with his live-in Thai girlfriend. The Canadian had returned unexpectedly from an overseas business trip, and walked in on the illicit lovers in his Bangkok home.

BANGKOK – November 10, 2012 [PDN]: A report of a man being fatally stabbed was received by the Kannayao police station in Bangkok. A police team rushed to inspect the scene. The incident occurred in a house at 418/63 Harbetia village, Tambon west Sarmwa, Amphur Klong Sarmwa.

At the scene, police found the victim’s body in a second-floor room of the house. He had been stabbed more than 50 times all over his body. He was identified as Mr. Komsan Aksornchart, age 59, occupation lawyer.

The man who killed him was identified as Mr. Macos Beyond, age 42, a Canadian engineer. He was in the house and gave the knife to police and surrendered himself without escaping. Also in the house was the suspect’s girlfriend, identified as Ms. Patcharaporn Pinorn, age 42.

During questioning, police discovered that Mr. Macos and his girlfriend had lived together for 6 years in the house, which he had bought to live with Ms. Patcharaporn. But Mr. Macos seldom stayed in the house because he often had to travel abroad.

Meanwhile, Ms. Patcharaporn was studying for a master’s degree at Ramkhamhaeng University, where she became acquainted with the Thai lawyer. On the day of the stabbing, Mr. Macos had flown back from abroad unexpectedly without telling Ms. Patcharaporn beforehand
