How did you propose to your wife.
« on: November 07, 2015, 01:48:11 PM »
How did you propose to your wife or did she propose to you.

After watching this silly clip of a guy persistently proposing, I thought, Well i never made a proposal nor did she, it just happened, clever are the thai ladies don't you think.

Strange thai weddings there's more fuss (and cost) made over the unofficial traditional budah wedding than there is in the official amphur one. As you know the amphur marriage for me was to make it easier, as in next of kin when i die.

Infact the official amphur marriage is quite simple and no cost but very solemn one might say. Not even a peck on the cheek, thai people don't do that in public anyway ;D


                                                 after all the fuss he made how could she say no.

No proposal.  She basically said, "You marry me now or I finEESH you!" 

Best decision I've ever made.

Where is the olden day style gone, getting down on one knee, having said that might need a hand getting back up.

Oh! no a cauliflower on the doorstep :-[

Going back to medieval times the man proposed by leaving a hawthorn branch at the door of his intended, on the first day of may. If she left it there that meant she accepted his proposal, She made  her refusal known by replacing the hawthorn branch with a cauliflower.

But some guys have branches everywhere. ;)

Joking about getting down on one knee proposing, i'm surprised how flexible thai people are.

When we had the budah ceremony wedding, i was told i would only have to kneel for about five minutes, which turned out to be half an hour. :-[

I was ok on my knees for about 5 minutes, then sat cross legged for 5 minutes, then sat on the floor my legs at the side looking very uncomfortable, people, incuding the holy people started to giggle, then someone come to the rescue and put a small stall under my back side. Oh! great.

Yes i'm surprised how easy it is for thai people to squat, kneel, ect.ect. very flexible.

I tried that, Roger.  The problem was that she kept putting "other" things in my face.  I think you know what I mean.  ;D  I have to say....I did know my wife for seven years before we married.....BUT.. I learned more about her in the first month after we were married.  For example, I know now that food and hunger is of the utmost important thing to a Thai spouse.  A well cooked or purchased meal will solve any problem or current problem one may be having with their Thai spouse.   Money too....that seems to always solve any problem.  "Here honey....Here's 10,000 baht.  Go out shopping and buy something nice for yourself."   Fcking cnt gave it to the mother instead.  Oh well.

That's right, Thaiga.  I know you know where I'm coming from.  Here's another fun pronunciation flaw I love to tease my wife about......the word "Hospital."  Ask a Thai to say it. It comes out like some sort of Mexican food side dish or something. "Hot-Pee-To."   I think I'll have one order of Hot-pee-to to go please. Ironic too, considering my wife use to work in a Hot-Pee-To.  :o

Hi BF. So you served a 7 year apprenticeship .... Good man !
Your comment about hunger and food is spot on. The new 'Mrs' R who you haven't met, is at 50, a trim 49 kg and very nice too. But hungry - how can I put it - quite often. Fortunately, even in our 'quiet' spot at the Korat Resort, within 2km or so there is a good range of street kitchens.
One promising development last week, Mrs R took up a challenge from a friend at our local shop / beer stop and joined the crew for a day, picking corn heads, quite a departure from a career managing a jewellery shop and working at a factory in the UK. After 30 minutes there was a frantic phone call to tell me 'it's hot'. Quelle surprise ! But she stuck to it and the icing on the cake, friends insisted on paying her the 'wages' and she then bought ME a beer. Lovely. Good trend. No repeat yet. Waiting though.
We traveled 700km to Ban Pang in Ban Hong area near Lamphun yesterday - NO stops for food ! But plenty carried on board - 8hrs and arrived in a thunderstorm. The one dreary 'bar' in Ban Pang has closed so have to find somewhere else for my daily 'LeO'. Ban Hong the nearest place with more than 20 houses is 25km away. I'm missing the Heng Band, Check Inn and Walrus already. 4 weeks to go .......

Stevie Wonder ? Showing your age Thaiga. Love him too - even read a book !
The SW version of .Happy Birthday. re. Martin Luther King if I recall, is one of my favourites and recently, I was listening to the double album 'Songs in the Key of Life', on vinyl - how classy is that ?

Let me say, Roger.  I don't know how they stay so thin considering how often they eat.  Perhaps, it's the the small portions rather than three large meals per day?

My wife cannot do nothing without her small portion, food that is  :)

Thais don't need a clock they eat when they're hungry, as for staying slim i have noticed some of the kids are more on the large size these days. Mc donalds, kfc, chips ect.ect. Not to mention the large coke.

Wow roger, 700km in one go 8hrs. thats a bit of a slap non stop, well done, Mrs.t always carries some rice and whatever she puts in it on long journeys, of course a flask of tea and some goodies as well.

Hi T / BF - that was no stops for food - both of us were eating home cooked food in the car on the way. Some other quick stops for toilet / diesel allowed by this regime !
I admit to a crisis at one point when I quipped to my English competent Mrs R when she returned to the car, 'Well that was very good Darling but you remember when we were watching FI and it takes 2-5 seconds for a pitstop' !
That caused a ripple ? and I defended myself by saying well it's better to get there and then relax - particularly with mountain climbs and rain forecast late afternoon and a bit of rain sensitive furniture not covered well enough in the back. Grump. However we got to her house on Uncle's farm, just as the rain hammered down - unfortunately he'd left a 50 year Toyota under the car port and gone to Chiang Mai and my cover leaks and water hurts this nice cabinet in the back from the UK. Raining too hard to unload - a dilemma ?
In the end pushed the Vintage out and managed to unload without damage ...
But restful now. But a cockerell gave us a rural welcome at 3.00 am.
Good fun init ?

Thanks for sharing that with us roger. Even more fun when you look back on it. as in do you remember when .......

As for the cockerell. external stimuli

We have a cockerell doing his thing here quite close to home at all odd times of night. Maybe his watch is wrong.
I think it's possible that increasing light, such as car headlights may be the reason for your early morning welcome.
