Thai culture, or more specifically the Thai way of doing things, has had little influence from the outside and many of the things that happen are based on principles from the past, some of which may not be entirely valid in 2007.Western men spending any length of time in Thailand usually find themselves getting involved with a Thai woman and what follows can sometimes feel like a roller coaster ride.
A typical marriage is preceded by a courting period that can last from several weeks to several years.Couples often meet at school, work, festivals or family gatherings.Marriages have traditionally been regarded as unions of families.In many cases, a senior relative from the groom’s family formally asks bride’s parents for her hand in marriage.So if you are walking down the street DO NOT hold hands.
It is OK for the lady to put her arm and hand around the man's arm but that's about as far as it should go. If a girl lets a man touch, hold hands or put his arm around her the Thais believe the girl is easy, loose or maybe a prostitute.Note: Please bear in mind that these pictures are from my own wedding and we are not wearing the traditional dress.We also held our wedding in a hotel, as opposed to the family home..action_button.action_button:active.action_button:hover.action_button:focus,.action_button:hover.action_button:focus .count,.action_button:hover .count.action_button:focus .count:before,.action_button:hover .count:bullet.

Both Thai men and women know this but for some strange reason many male visitors to Thailand just don't get it. Many people who have met my wife and I ask where I found such a wonderful person, well it wasn't easy. The best place to meet someone is where she works (not a bar).
