    Look at the size of Ronnie’s nose. Big red veins of a sure alcoholic. On his 4th with. No wonder!

      The other guy was a definite psycho. Married and separated 6 days later!

      Thai women deserve much better than the dregs these so called “marriage brokers” attract from over seas.

    What a bunch of creeps, and some dumb women too. And why the HELL was that restaurant called cabbage and condoms??

    I think that people are lonely in this world. I don’t believe it when they say they love each other. Marriage is to them perhaps a type of companionship and a sort of business. They both want something out of this and it may not be love but they are both adults and it is their decision.

    I feel bad for the younger girls though, they might not know what’s best yet. Like the 21 year old that married Ronnie, I felt like her mother pushed her into that.

  • OMG.,,. Some of these men seem like predators, and some seem so pathetic. I understand that they are lonely, but this seems a bit too far.

    Then again if they can’t find happiness, who can blame them for going somewhere they are guaranteed to get a woman who doesn’t ‘wear pants.’

    I thought the Guy who got married was a total wanker. I really  couldnt conjure such a complete ass in my imagination. Hard to describe . He covered the whole spectrum of creepy wierdo and yet I feel the woman who chose him did so out of compassion and with intelligence and a spirituality that impressed me. God give her patience .
