That’s especially true if you’re dating women who are around your age or older.You should always be aware that age matters a lot in Thailand and the fact that the words “pîi” (พี่) for older person and “nɔ́ɔng” (น้อง) for younger person always replace the actual name of someone you don’t know yet.But then ask yourself how many of them are olden then say 35?Yes, there are always exceptions but I bet you don’t know a lot who are over 35 and make more money than their husband, no matter whether Thai or Farang.It’s not just that the older siblings are the main caretaker in the family both for the parents and also for the younger brothers and sisters – but this also applies to relationships where the man is usually older than the woman.One side note before we get into the interesting part: Of course we are talking about “normal Thai women” here, means girls with day jobs, office girls and students.If you are ever thinking about marrying a Thai woman then what you should be aware of is that you are not marrying only one person but a whole family and are supposed to take part in all sorts of social gatherings but also the moment you are asking her parents for permission to marry her you need to promise them to take care (in Thai “duu lɛɛ”, ดูแล) of her always.
Nonetheless, it is important to recognize that such marriage patterns have evolved and changed over time.
These are certainly a lot of numbers to consider and as I mentioned above, each model presents a different proportion.
Nonetheless, what these stats tell us is that generally speaking, across all three models (calculated by using the admittedly unscientific method of averaging the proportions across all three models to emphasize the last two models), these are the Asian ethnic groups are most or least likely to have each kind of spouse: Men/Husbands -- Most / The numbers presented above only represent a 'cross sectional' look at racial/ethnic marriage patterns involving Asian Americans.
In order to get a closer look at recent trends, we can compare these numbers to data from the 2006 Census.
In comparing the 2010 data to the 2006 numbers, there are a few notable trends we can observe: Now that we have a general picture of what the marriage rates are for all members of each of these six Asian American ethnic groups, on the next page we will take a more specific look at only those Asian Americans who grew up in the U. and are therefore most likely to have been socialized within the context of U. racial landscape and intergroup relations -- the U.
