Supposedly their culture demands that these demands are made upon the groom and it seems to me the brides family are very good at potentially spending the grooms' money even though the amounts involved B, is money far beyond what they have ever known.
It's very frustrating!! If anyone can pass on info.
Thank you. Yes, don't pay it, the greedy grasping family will always be holding their hands out for Sin sot thailand. The lady I wish to be married to is university educated and holds down a very responsible job however this tradition does seem to be very important.
I have met hundreds of them all with the same story This is exactly what I am regularly reading and hearing about however many farangs still get married and have good marriages. But the sinsod is not just for farangs, it's very relevant in all Thai marriages. How Thai grooms afford these traditional financial demands let alone farangs I just don't know.
I don't want to go against tradition but surely there must be an alternative solution. At this time I am not prepared to go down the culture route so how do I solve this problem. I have attended three weddings here in Thailand between farangs and locals, and on each occasion the Sin Sod was used as a purely symbolic gesture for the actual day of the ceremony, and was returned after the celebrations were over. I have an English friend here on Samui who has been married to his Thai wife for 10 years now. Next time I see him I'll ask him what he did.
Sin Sod is a traditional Thai cultural practice.
Pony up. Many retiree pensioners come here, marry, flout Thai cultural norms and practices.
This reflects badly on westerners in general and generates blowback on us drifters and backpackers. I appreciate that the sinsod is possibly symbolic gesture and possibly just done for "show" in fact in marriages between Thais the money is often found from short term borrowing. In short the groom and his family don't have that sort of money so they borrow it Professional money lenders for show. It might be tradition but I have no intention of making our wedding a show of make believe financial "clout" I think it's a relevant point that this it is "our" wedding not the bride's only, it seems the groom sometimes just makes up the s and pays the bills with little or no input into the whole day.
In the modern world my impression is that these cultural demands are done to appease the older generations of the family and the younger ones go along with it even though they understand that it not really a part of 21st century thinking or Sin sot thailand politically correct. I don't believe a marriage can be entered into with a financial transaction as its basis.
