She is disgusted with what I wrote honestly and she needed to let us all know she disapproves because she is the reincarnation of Mother Theresa. Of course she'll be seeing her boyfriend tonight who will be paying for dinner and a movie and they'll probably be discussing just how large of a diamond ring she will need in order to marry him...and then there is the whole wedding to pay for...

I was not disappointed ! Her attitude is everything I have come to expect from "Western" women. I hope she comes back to explain herself. BTW - Your description of how you met Pookie almost perfectly describes my own experiences and how I met Nok, my wife. (Her real name is Sirikorn - this week. On advice from Buddha she has changed it three times since we have been together.)

I have never heard any well traveled woman say such a thing but have heard many untraveled western women declare it decisively.

I would say that is probably the worst of all the cliché’s I have ever heard and unfortunately it is usually propagated by western women in my experience.' And I totally agree! But all of the western women I've heard say that have never lived in Thailand or Asia. Either that, or they have never opened their eyes. The Thai women I know are not submissive - lordy, lordy, not by a long shot! And any man going into a relationship with that as a given is going to get a rude awakening. Or pleasant, depending on how you look at it. And while I have met some shy Asian women, it is usually a matter of age. Some Asian women, just like some Western women, take a bit longer to come into their own. A couple of weeks ago a Thai friend called Home Pro from my home phone. My, my, I'll bet the Home Pro staff member's ears were burning from the talking to she gave them. Women are basically the same all over: desires, wants, needs... Their upbringing and culture just adds to it all. Before I sign off, I just wanted to say what a beauty Pookie is.

Hardly :-D Yes they are often happy with more clearly defined, traditionally feminine roles compared to Western relationships, but that's not the same thing. As you say it's one of the cliches, they certainly stand up for themselves in my experience! 'Feisty' is how I would describe the Thais I have known...

Pookie does have firm answers for certain things but others it's like pulling teeth. Maybe you will break Doy of the cycle...seems you have a good chance if she likes falang food.

However I still have problems getting MTF involved in decision making. For example I currently want a new gate, I like a particular style but I want to know what she thinks, I am sure you know the answer i.e. "up to you." If I do the washing up she now begrudging accepts I can do it OK and recently since we have had Doy staying with us she will let me cook farang food (which Doy likes). Since I have no wish to try and change her cultural upbringing I tend to accept that there will always be an element of "up to you" in our lives. I will be interested how Doy develops with her now daily exposure to a different cultural viewpoint provided by me. .-= Mike´s last blog ..<a href="http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheTeflDon/~3/I6kOxHxyjrs/thai-marriage-tong-mun-and-sin-sod.html" rel="nofollow">Thai Marriage: Tong Mun and Sin Sod</a> =-.
