There has always been a huge distinction between East and West and for hundreds of years, tales of the orient have intrigued Westerners and created dreams of traveling to these unknown lands. As travel became more common and much cheaper, these dreams became realities for many people and their ideas about these faraway places suddenly became a reality. On arriving in Thailand after the initial culture shock many Westerners choose to make their lives here, and they fall in love with the friendly and welcoming Asian wife.
Why Do American, Canadian, Australian, English And Other Foreign Nationals Choose An Asian Wife?
Every year, American, Canadian, Australian, English and other foreigners (or Farangs as we call you) choose to uproot their lives and move here for many different good reasons. In many single mens cases they hope to meet a beautiful, charming Asian woman to be their wives. Asian women are usually slim, relaxed, easy going, have a great sense of humor and see the good in life and we are perceived by Western men as being exotic.
Stereotypes Of The Asian Wife
Hi! I am Nathamon, the owner and CEO of Meet Me Now Bangkok dating agency which works with thailadydatefinder.com to introduce Western men to a prospective Asian wife . Many men before they come to Thailand have indented stereotypes of the Asian wife which they hope are true. There are many stereotypes of the Asian wife and some are true and some are not. National characteristics are an important part of any culture and it is important they are known if one is going to have a relationship with a person in that society.
I think Thailand definitely looks different than it did 200 years ago but most basic truths remain the same. One stereotype that attracts many men to search for a Thai bride is that we are doting wives and enjoy looking after our husbands and the home. This is one generalization that is mainly true, as an Asian wife loves cooking for her husband and takes great pride in making him happy and satisfied. Roles within marriage are well ingrained into society, and as long as our husbands support, protect and display us the love and affection that we deserve, then we want nothing more than to make them content both sexually and emotionally. We particularly strive to make sure that he is always stuffed to the brim with food. This trait of an Asian wife definitely goes back to our intense family values and love for making a happy home. Another stereotype that I think is definitely true is that there are many beautiful women here, as the average woman is petite, feminine and looks after her appearance.
An Asian Wife Is Special
Another reason that Western men want to make their lives in Thailand is because of the country itself and the way in which they and their wives can live compared to Western countries. There are excellent job opportunities for foreigners, and many open great businesses here with their partners. The cost of living is so low that you can live in luxury for a fraction of the cost, whilst taking your wife for beautiful meals and even going on trips on a regular basis without exhausting your savings. Entertainment is also amazingly cheap, so you can really enjoy life like you may have not been able to afford to do in your own country.
It’s very cheap to travel internally and also outside Thailand to neighboring countries like Singapore, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, and Vietnam. Flights to Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand can be as cheap as $75 round trip, and nice hotels are inexpensive. You can also easily go to the beach for a quick weekend on the bus which only costs $3 a ticket or a flight still only $75 round trip. You can fly to Malaysia for a long weekend on Air Asia where a round trip is only around $100. Thailand is a great place to take mini-breaks as there is so much to see and do and it really is so cheap. Even if salaries in Thailand are lower, you can buy so much more with your money. The way of life here in Thailand is completely different to Western countries as people are very relaxed and laid back. The women here reflect this, and arguments and aggression are very rare for us, as we just want to live a peaceful life. Many Western men can escape the stress and urgency that exists in their own countries and enjoy a slower pace of life.
Thailand is a beautiful place to live, with dream-like beaches a great quality of life. Who doesn’t like a warm, sunny climate all year round? Marrying a Thai lady gives you the opportunity to know the country through a natives eyes and learn from her as well as teaching your Asian Wife about your culture which she will be equally interested in.
