Do Thai brides want the personal gold in addition to the money for their families to cash on in if they break up? Do virgins (who aren't supporting their families with sex money) call for a higher sin sot than prostitutes? Are prostitutes even looked down upon in Thailand? Or are they more of a financial asset to the family? Does the foreigner have to keep on supporting the family financially after he's paid the sin sot they arbitrarily demanded? the custom is the same for Thais and foreigners. for Thais, the parents get together and agree on an amount because it is traditionally paid for by the groom's parents. gold is a normal part of a Thai wedding. Annie wants 11 baht weight of gold-- a ridiculous amount. 2 or 3 baht would be enough for most people. a dowry can be a way to show off so the amount can be huge when wealthy Thais/celebrities marry. additionally, the parents often give the newlyweds a house/car etc. if a girl goes off to work as a bar girl or prostitute, she will not announce it to the world-- she will say she is a singer or a waitress, etc. "Does the foreigner have to keep on supporting the family financially after he's paid the sin sot they arbitrarily demanded?" some do, some don't. in some cases it can be a lot. my Thai in-laws never asked for a thing, but my marriage was not a marriage of convenience. I have a feeling if David/Annie marry, it will be a huge drain on him. same for Larry from the other show. 2 Link to comment
