No credit card no bullshit girls
If you know an iota about Thai culture, you'll know that a girl who has worked in a farang-style beer bar will struggle to earn the respect of other Thais going forward.
I see a girl who naively bought into the idea that her teenage husband would stay faithful and do his best to always support her and her kids, and invested in the antiquated cultural requirement that a girl must marry the first seemingly decent boy she is caught flirting with.
As we know, gambling, alcoholism and abuse is rife in such economic settings. Moreover, once a Thai girl has been in the bar, she will struggle to get a Thai boyfriend at all.
Therefore, once in the bar, a westerner/foreigner isn’t a choice, he is the only option.
Yet being from the social underclass, divorced/separated (more often than not with kids) prior to the bar, the only Thai men they have access to on a serious relationship level are also from that social underclass.
They are low income earning men that will (generally) resemble similar characteristics to the inadequate man they were once married to.
