Why More & More Thai Ladies Are Looking For A Foreign Husband

Thai ladies are very traditional in their cultural ways and for close personal relationships to succeed you must take time to learn about the individual lady and you both need to be sure you wish to make a life time commitment to each other.
As long as you treat them with respect, Thai ladies will respond positively, as they do like calm natured men who are genuine and good at heart.

More Respect

For one, more Thai females are now aware that foreign men do not have the same attitude as some Thai men, the girls realise that with marriage to a foreigner she has a better chance of being well treated, respected and having a faithful husband, something which is not always an option for some Thai girls in their native country. They also feel they have more opportunity to be in a sincere two-way loving caring relationship with a foreigner.

More Balanced Attitude

Another point to note is the legal position is more balanced in the west. In Thailand at present it is still possible for a man to divorce his wife on the grounds of adultery, but not for the wife to do the same to her husband. (The divorce law is Article 1516 of Thai Civil Law and still states [February 2007] that if a wife sleeps with a man who is not her husband she commits adultery, giving her husband grounds to file for divorce. According to the law, however, a woman is unable to reciprocate if her husband sleeps with another woman, except if she can prove that he supports the other woman or regards her as being on the same level as herself).

Even as a divorcee in Thailand there is a stigma attached when it comes to females remarrying, whereas males have very little difficulty.

People & Society

Thais can be broken down into various regional groups including the main Thai, northeastern, northern, and southern Thai with their own regional dialects of their mutually intelligible Thai language.
Modern Central Thai has become more dominant due to official government policy which was designed to assimilate and unify the disparate Thai in spite of ethnolinguistic and cultural ties between the northeastern Thai and the Lao for example.

The Thai written language or Thai alphabet developed shortly after the conquest at Angkor, suggesting that it was adopted from the Khmer.
The modern Thai are predominantly Theravada Buddhist and strongly identify their ethnic identity with their religious beliefs that include aspects of ancestor worship. Some of modern Thai literature are Sanskrit base borrowed via the Khymers and Mon cultures, while ethnically the Thai are mostly linked to the southern Chinese.

Indigenous arts include Muay Thai (kick boxing), Thai dance, and Nang Yai (shadow play). Thai cuisine tends to be quite eclectic and resembles the foods of neighbouring countries of Burma, Laos, and Cambodia.

General:
Population

Currently, about 75 percent of the population is Thai and 14 percent is Chinese. The remaining population is made up of other ethnic groups, including Khmer and Vietnamese, some of whom are refugees living in border regions.

There are about 60 million people living in Thailand. A little less than one-third of the population is under age 15, and only 4 percent is over 65, with a life expectancy of 71 years. Three-quarters of the population live in rural areas. For all that, Bangkok is one of the most populous cities in the world—an estimated 6 million people crowd Thailand's capital.
