    They look very happy in their pictures, good for them.

    Also it's not really a 'marriage' that would be recognized legally, it was a Buddhist ceremony.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    LOL, you don't know anything about Thailand, ROTFLOL.

    What most Western social conservatives don't know, is that Thailand does not have a tradition of two-parent families, or even an idea of two-genders.

    Traditionally, and what's still adhered to in the rural parts of the country, marriages (and fidelity) aren't that important. Your own extended family is the most important, and family is matrilineal with the exception of those minorities with Chinese or Tibetan heritage. Love and marriage are not romantic. The husband most often goes to live with the wife and her several generations of her family; while her priorities are in the order of most to least important: her family, herself, her children, and then her husband and his family. When the couple does leave the wife's parental home, it's often to a piece of land that is in the immediate vicinity. Today that tradition is still a very strong influence even in the urban, cosmopolitan areas of Thailand, but there's more flexibility of which family the couple chooses to live with.

    Next up, gender is fluid and there's more than two-genders. There's three-genders (phet-thi-sam) and four different sexualities. The Thai do not even bat an eye at kathoey, or sao praphet song.

    Finally in the patrilinial spheres of Thailand (the Chinese/Tibetan/Burma heritages), polygamy is widely practiced. The second wife is called Mia Noi (or Pua Noi for polyandry). The practice was only banned in 2010, which means that it's still very common and still widely practiced.

    Fine and dandy, but tell that to The Daily Mail who ran this under the title:

    And btw... did I claim to know anything about Thailand? No.

    I've done business there, family has done business there, but I'll admit, aside from Tom Ka Gai and Singha Jai and Lek, and a morning shot of Mekong for medicinal purposes... I don't know much about Thailand.

    Wasn't near a toursit trap, but south near the Burmese border, along the coast... Nice people, beautiful place. Look forward to going back.

    Okay, but then why do same-sex couples not have the same legal benefits/protections as opposite sex couples in Thailand?
    It was not part of their blood,
    It came to them very late,
    With long arrears to make good,
    When the Saxon began to hate.

    ??? What's the issue here? Polygamy is legal in many countries.

    Why in the **** would anyone want additional spouses? I could barely put up with one.
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.

    You mean like the polygamous Mormons did for years in the U.S.? You sound like you never heard of this before. Whether it's right or wrong, polygamy is hardly new in the world or in this country. Polygamy is currently against the law in the U.S. Polygamy is a different issue from monogamy.
