Why Doesn’t My Thai Girlfriend Understand?
If you walk into any bar in Pattaya or indeed, anywhere in Thailand, there is a good chance that you will hear a foreign man complaining that his Thai girlfriend doesn’t understand him. This could be that the Thai lady doesn’t understand the actual words that he is saying – language issues, or maybe that she does understand his reasoning. In the latter instance, this is often due to their being cultural differences and the fact that we simply don’t view things the same way.
What’s it like being in a relationship with a Thai?
When you start a relationship with your Thai girlfriend, it is important to understand that she will have been exposed to a completely different upbringing. It is likely that she hasn’t had the same educational opportunities that you have had and that family values are far more important than in many countries in the west. If she hasn’t had the same experiences, is it fair to expect your Thai girlfriend to understand and interpret things in the same way that you do?
Do Thai girls make good partners?
On the whole, Thai girls are warm and friendly but they can be volatile and prone to jealousy. This can obviously affect rational thought in the best of circumstances but when language and cultural issues are also brought into the equation, things can be made 10 times worse! This may sound like something of a sweeping statement but it is reasonably accurate. In fact, Thai girls often prefer foreigners because they view them as being more emotionally stable, not to mention that they can offer them financial security. Does your Thai girlfriend really love you?
Does my Thai girlfriend need a visa to visit the UK?
If you have started to progress with your relationship and you are starting to understand each other more, then you may consider taking her to visit the UK. In order for her to be able to do this legally, she would require a general visitors visa Visa. Once she has obtained this, she will be allowed to visit the UK for up to 6 months in any 12 month period. This will help her to understand things from a western point of view and hopefully make your relationship stronger. However, you should be aware that the chances are she will experience something of a culture shock.
Can you marry your Thai girlfriend in the UK?
If everything is successful, then you may consider marrying your Thai girlfriend. If you are planning to get married in the UK, she can apply for marriage visitors visa, if the intention is to settle then you must apply for a fiancee visa. Both visas are valid for six months and you will be required to get married in the UK during that period. If you intend to marry your Thai girlfriend in Thailand and then move to the UK, she would require a Thai spouse visa.
