The other study into Thai women in Holland conducted by the student doing a Ph D course at Leiden University focuses on the tension caused within marriages between Thai women and Dutch men caused by obligations taken on by Thai wives after they move with their husbands to Holland.
M/s Suksomboon cites as an example one Thai woman returning with her Dutch husband to her family in North Eastern Thailand.
I’m reading through the CNN travel report circa 2011 and wondering why the dutch don’t have a mention as one of the coolest nationalities in the world. Ditch the ill feelings towards the dutch guy who is rumoured to Go Dutch, when you are sitting at a table across from him, and slowly clearing your plate on a date.
My husband and I are still a bit too newly wed to have gotten to children yet. Pets are more often than not equal family members and I think it's a shame that there's not more said about what effect it has on the pet to move and be moved.
A key facet of the findings was that Thai women with marriage partners in Holland maintained financial links with their extended family in Thailand.
There are now well over 10,000 Thai women from Thailand who are living in Holland, most of them married to Dutch men.
Now, however, big American-style weddings are on the rise, but mostly weddings are small, comparatively quiet events, and - from what I've seen - tend to take place on weekday afternoons.
I have also learned that, unless the couple is Catholic, it is the norm to wear wedding bands on the right hand, which is not the same practice in the US.
