It is common for many Thai and farang couples to live in different countries. You may go to Thailand several times a year to see your Thai partner and thoroughly enjoy it, catching up with friends in the process. We all love coming to Thailand, but sometimes we would also like our Thai girlfriend to go to the UK and see a different way of life. It is likely to strengthen your relationship and give her a better understanding of why you do the things that you do.
