    Getting Married in Thailand

    Marriage process in Thailand .

    As I have been married before , I needed my original copies of divorce documents .
    So , armed with these in hand off to the Australian Embassy in BKK I go . No appointment is required !
    Just take a ticket and wait for you no. to be called . Wasn't busy at all , just 2 people in front of me . Number called and up i go . Request for documents for getting married . Ok , no problem . Do you have you divorce papers here ? Yes ! Ok good can i have them . A copy is made of them , and she hands me a fact sheet and a form to fill out .
    This being a Statutory Decloration , confirming who i am & my intentions to marry Tane and that i am single and able to legally marry .

    http://i1137.photobucket.com/albums/...ac/statdec.jpg

    Stat Dec filled in and completed , I handed it back 5 mins later and paid $20.00 AUD each for Stat Dec and divorce certificate copy .
    That was it for the Aussie Embassy .
    Next it was off to get the paperwork translated into Thai.
    I was told by Kaptain Rob to look for Wireless Travel , which is situated in the Thai Wah Tower about 300 meters down the road.
    Up to the 3rd floor and in we go , asked if they can do the translations and a big yes was the reply .
    We handed over the paperwork to be translated with copies of Tanes Thai passport & Thai ID .
    He said it will take 2 days to get it translated and sent to the Thai Forigen Embassy in Don Muang . It will be ready to be picked up on the 9th ! Damn I'm flying back to Phuket on the morn of the 9th ! Ok he said no problem we will express courier them back to you in Phuket if you would like ! (for a charge of course )
    Cost was 500baht per page for translation
    800baht per page from Thai Govt certification and 1500baht for their service and express courier .
    So all up 4600baht !

    A couple of days later all the papers arrived at my hotel . All stamped (Thai Govt ) and translated . below in order are the
    Thai version of affidavit (Stat Dec )

    Stamp on back of my Affidavit

    All papers in hand the next day we went down to Phuket Amphur Office .
    They took one look at our papers and said ok you here for Marriage , please take a seat and we will call you . They took all the paperwork and dissapeared !
    About 30 minutes later they called us . Sat down and asked us to sign here , here and here . ok thank you , you nad now married and good luck for marriage and handed us 2 copies in Thai of our Marriage Certificate ! That was it ! We are now legally married !

    All that was left now was to do a ceremony in Phuket with family and friends !

    So do you have to present your marriage certificate to the Australian embassy to legitimise it?... Or is that it?
    Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.

    Or never get married...

    Anyone care to explain the benefits of being with one woman only? And why faithfulness is a good thing?

    I've never heard a rational argument for the affirmative... 55

    Not having a go at you Crispy. It's more a general philosophical question aimed at everyone... Why get married at all? Why can't people treat lovers like friends? We don't need to be married to our best mates. If they cease being our best mates, we move on. But in many instances our best mates stay our best mates for life... so the same with lovers. Some will be around for a short time and some for life... but why the need to marry?

    I could take it the next step as well. Why the need for faithfulness? A man made creation because most of us are insecure. But we don't get all jealous if our best mate sees another mate do we? So why do we treat lovers differently? If it's not about ego and insecurities, what is it about?

    I'd love to have an intellectual discussion on this... you know. About why we as humans feel the need to be with only one person. Because if you look at it non-emotionally, it seems quite inefficient for the continuation of the human species. And yet... most of us crave it. Even me... but why?

    I think the STD argument for monogamy is valid. Maybe not the be all, but valid nevertheless.
    Just a case of whether you can make a stronger reward argument for the acceptability of the increased risk.
    And where the hell was Biggles.....?....when you needed him last Saturday....?

    So we get married and have one partner only for long periods to avoid STDs? I can't imagine that is the main motivating factor.... no, there is something in our psyche that makes us do it... and I'd like to know if it is social conditioning or an innate genetic instinct...
