Have you met the family yet. are you to pay dowery "Sod sin". are the family throwing a party for you? Does mil want gold.I found out the hard way.Would suggest you search the thai forums for love and marriage before rocking up in the village and thinking its free. dont worry im still married to my wife, but felt like a lemon no knowing a thing about what was going to go down.we had about 150 guests "the village" pop in, you have to feed and booze them up. made about tbht 5500. dont sound like a lot but average wedding gift was tbht20. this only on loan to you. wife has to write it in a book and return it when that donor has a wedding or a son or daugther has a wedding and remember your a farang so interest on loan should be alot. need any more info from a lemon just shout
