    I understand that a divorce agreement in both languages will be needed, but unsure whether any of this info needs transferring onto the official document at the amphur, or if it gets attached to it.. should I be weary of any info being transferred and take a translator, or at least a trustworthy friend who speaks Thai and English?
    A divorce at an Amphur is legally recognised in both the UK and Thailand - you have no need to worry further on that point - the Amphur is a legal entity. It may be adviseable to have a translation of your divorce certificate AND the agreement that goes with it. I had both translated but have never needed them - nobody has aver asked me to prove I'm divorced.

    Thanks Flip.. that's the reassurance I was after. Will probably be heading out there in the next 3 to 4 weeks, just got to get some paper work in order. May post a little guide on here once it's all over

    I would add that I am refering to a marriage that was solemnised in Thailand. I doubt an Amphur can conduct a divorce if you were married in a different country. It may be possible for a Thai court to end a foreign marriage but that's beyond my knowledge of the subject.

    I'm not disputing that. I understand the legal requirements of bringing a Thai national to the UK. What I've seen of it, it's like bringing a fish out of water. They don't like the food, don't like the weather. Oh, and if you're an old fart married to a young Thai girl, they will soon be bored with you, want a divorce and find a younger model.

    Funny cos the vast majority of Thai women I know here seem to love it, and there are plenty of Asian food shops about. Also my wife was 34 and I am 35.

    As you said, learn from the experience, which I have done. This is certainly not going to put me off Thai women.

    You really do talk absolute crap mate.

    I've met scores of mixed couples here since being married 7 yrs and off the top of my head can't think of any divorces, which is more than I can say for my 'English' mates.

    The sad thing I have seen is where the elder gentleman dies and leaves wife and kids, but in almost all occassions the wife stays and raises the kids here.

    I suggest you stop reading about Stereotypes.

    ps. I'm 47, not sure if I fall into your old fart box.

    You really have no clue what you are talking about. My wife loves the food and the weather. She loves the change of seasons and the snow. I took her to Iceland just after the biggest snow fall in 50 years and she was in heaven.

    She also loves roast dinners and most English food. When we go back to Thailand at the end of the year she will be cooking a roast dinner for all of her family.

    Starting to wonder what you are doing hanging around a Thai forum and you certainly seem to like rubbing people up the wrong way.

    Well I wasn't sure you did, otherwise you wouldn't ask why the need to get married

    In my case my fish loves being out of water AND being with her old fart with a 15 years difference and she has done for the last 12 years, so much so that she doesn't even dip her toe back in for a holiday back there.

    Sounds like you picked a wrong un!

    You are completely out of touch with reality and probably completely in touch with Thai Visa reality. My marriage may have ended in divorce but most of the other Thai/Farang couples I've met in the UK are still together. When we were together my ex actually preferred the cooler weather here - it was me always hankering after warmer climes.

    I think its a case of 'bad news travels' - you only hear about the bad things that happen in life. I can't remember anyone starting a thread about how happily married they are - maybe someone should.

    Your wife went off to be with a woman which means she always leaned that way and was always suppressing her inner feelings.
    I'd be more upset if she went off with another guy, which would mean I failed to satisfy her. In fact if she married you having latent feelings for women it means you must be very attractive in some way to her.
    I.E you must be a good guy.

    Not necessarily Marshall - I read an article a while back where the author was saying that its quite common (in Thailand) for women to go through periods where they temporarily become attracted to the same sex -usually Toms. Sometime later they switch back to the opposite sex. The article went on to say that the author considered these women to be neither lesbian or bisexual - a distinction was made for this type of behaviour. Got to be something in the water......................

    Cheers mate, too nice for my own good sometimes

    We were just not right for each other, I am not bothered she went off with a woman, turns out could be the best thing that ever happened to me. It's funny how things can turn out

    What do you think you have in common with them then? look at why your marriage failed before starting over again, what did you learn from the failure?

    How funny. I've had a PM telling me you're not even married to a Thai? Makes me wonder what you are doing on here?
    I've picked a good one, and she's a Thai national.

    Oh dear, some little coward telling tales that has no balls to say something in public. Sad

    Oh dear, if a 2 minute newbie thinks that then perhaps I better leave

    You wouldn't think so from all your negative posts on here.

    My suspicions of another Troll are even stronger now. Mods, do you detect anything from the style of posting? Seems familiar to me, I think an old nuisance is back.
