🔴 David Can’t Afford His Young Thai Fiancé | 90 Day Fiancé:

In this episode, you will see how it is really like for Thai marriage, we think it will be useful for those who want to marry Thai woman to watch this before you REALLY MARRY THAI WOMAN, in order to understand the whole process of Thai marriage and to see various aspects of Thai culture, as Marriage with Thai can be relatively complicated, especially when it comes to Dowry system- how much would you pay to the bride’s family as a proof that you have financial stability to take care of the family in future.

The Thai dowry system, which is more commonly known as Sin Sod, is deeply rooted in Thai culture. It is a way of honoring your bride’s parents for raising their daughter well. This is also a way of showing that you are financially capable of taking care of your Thai bride throughout your married life, because her parents tend to consider financial security as basis for the marriage. You will need to negotiate with your bride’s parents regarding the amounts of the Sin Sod and Tong Mun. Tong Mun, which means gold engagement, is 24-karat gold that you give to your wife-to-be. The rule of thumb is, the higher the amount of the gold, the better. This is similar to the giving an engagement ring in the West.
