    Default name change

    hi all

    my son getting married in march but not got the time to change his future wife's name, so everything in her maiden name, she passed english test last week and getting her passport and id card and tb test in her maiden name also.

    If and when she gets her settlemant visa and here in the uk if she applies for a job can she use her married name or has she got to use name that's in her passport. She will change her name on passport etc; at a later date.

    thanks

    She can use her married name if she wishes, my wife has not changed her family name in Thailand as yet.

    So in Thailand she is still Ms YYY as per her ID card, passport, etc... but is Mrs XXX here in the UK as per her Bank Account, NI number, and everything else.

    It is quiet common, or so I understand. We will look at changing the Thailand documents on our next trip.

    You can use both names as my wife's Thai documents are in her family name and all UK documents are in her UK married name. The important bit is the visa application should match the passport as with airline tickets.

    Does who want to know? The Thai government for his marriage, or the UK government for his wife's visa application?

    If it's the Thai government, then no, they only need to know that your son is 'free to marry' as in, not already married.

    If it's the UK government, I don't know if your son's recent divorce would affect any visa application. I'm guessing that it wouldn't.

    Doesn't it depend where they are getting married? If in Thailand isn't there a 310 day waiting period to make sure there are no sprogs expected from the previous marriage? Or is that just if the female partner is the one getting divorced? It can be sidestepped anyway by getting a 'certificate of not being pregnant', or whatever, from a doctor, can't it?

    Or a meringue?

    That's just if the female is the one divorced

    You can get a meringue if you want, do you mean the desert dish or the dance? I'm sure they'd appreciate either in the Amphur!

    It's all in the reading, Biff, might be a bit tricky for you southerners!

    About what? A meringue being a desert? (I've since found out that the dance is spelt 'Merengue')

    No, I don't think so. My favourite is a lemon meringue, my mum used to get one in of a weekend.

    I have also recently learned (thanks to you bringing it up) that;
    When egg whites are beaten, some of the hydrogen bonds in the proteins break, causing the proteins to unfold ("denature") and to aggregate non-specifically. This change in structure leads to the stiff consistency required for meringues. The use of a copper bowl, or the addition of cream of tartar is required to additionally denature the proteins to create the firm peaks, otherwise the whites will not be firm. Plastic bowls, wet or greasy bowls will likely result in the meringue mix being prevented from becoming peaky. Wiping the bowl with a wedge of lemon to remove any traces of grease can often help the process.
    Which is nice to know

    Being a southerner, I suffer the same problem Biffo - how to decode what the heck geordies are saying. There's a bloke from Newcastle in our local bar pool team and I ran GTG's quote past him, and it appears that 'or a meringue' translates to 'or am e(I) ringue(wrong). Difficult I know, but we must make allowances for them.

    I thought our lovely neighbours from the Toon had already claimed independence for the 'Geordie Nation'.

    Looking forward to Sunday lunchtime (not). No meringues.
