My gf is also circumsized. In africa they cut the clit. 

well its nt like that. i have read about it. its called FGM and its too painful for the girl. it may be done due to cultural or religious reason. but its not good and there is a movement to stop it. 

 

i have heard that some communities in my country too practice FGM , but growing awareness helps. 🙏🙏

I sometimes wonder what role does religion play when a western man marries a thai woman?  

Just never forget, they worship Lord Baht!

well i respect your right to not believe in any organized religion. but i am sure there is some sort of super power. but again , that is a whole different topic.  🙏🙏

 

and to answer your question, I used to think that all western people are Christians. But apparently that is not the truth. 

 

I was only curious about conversion to get the "legally married" status . But i was wrong to assume that. Now I understand that religion has no role in the marriage between a thai buddhist woman and western man.

 

No one needs to convert to anything. They can follow different or no religions as clear from various replies.  

 

 

Thanks to all the replies..  🙏🙏🙏🙏

Yes u must be circumsized to marry and they will check.

 

My gf is also circumsized. In africa they cut the clit. Malaysia they do not. They put a very small cut on the cover of it to expose it. Like 2mm. U cant notice.

The procedure in women is not circumcision. not correct term. This term was given to try and make the practice of Female Genital Mutilation acceptable. It is not similar to man procedure. The extent of the cutting, and usually removal of parts of body like clitoris and labia is very different.  In man, the  glans is equivalent of  clitoris and it is not touched.

malaysians are good people. very simple and kind hearted..

 

but they are harboring known fugitive wanted by at least 2 countries. They gave him PR too on the spot.  Authorities only wanted to question him but malaysian government keeps denying the access. Wonderful malaysia. 

Plenty of fugitives are heroes on the run from non elected military juntas

Seems to me that forcing your spouse to change to your religion is the basis for the further abuse of their beliefs.

 

Nobody should ever change their religious beliefs for marriage and if ever asked they should say, 'NO, you convert to mine instead' and then if the answer is no, then that pretty much sums up the fact that your beliefs and feelings mean less than your partners and is no basis for a marriage at all  !

 

If anything I am Christian  - or was brought up that way. My wife is devout Buddhist and I am happy to appease her by going to her buddhist ceremonies and partially joining in where appropriate without believing. We do not fight or argue over religion. 

 

My first marriage to a Thai lady had 9 monks at the house waffling on for hours, then near the end one put his oversized fan down and spoke fluent English saying thank you doing this Buddhist ceremony as it meant a great deal to my then wife even though they knew I was a non believer. And that is all it should ever be, appease the Mrs , but don't ever give up your own beliefs

Not correct, read my post. The mutilation is done in africa. It is not done in malaysia. In malaysia it is a very small cut to expose the clitoris.

 

I think i would know considering my gf had it done.

Never had a problem with my Thai wife about religion. She's Buddhist and so am I in a way, though raised a Catholic.  She will do the little ceremonies sometimes, but is not obsessed.  I will participate in ceremonies because it's a cultural thing.  Here in the U.S., some of the monks have been very kind to us, like after we lost a son in the war in Iraq.   Last year at this time, we went to a Laotian temple to do the honor thing when my younger brother died.  It was a bit of a challenge, but I enjoyed talking to one of the monks in Thai/Isaan.

15 years ago we had the monks come over to the house ...

One advantage of supposedly being a Satanist is that the Thais consult me or beg me to get rid of ghosts and evil spirits  or even to put curses on evil thais ,  as i claim to have a direct line to the devil ha ha , quite funny really they believe it ,,and it makes them feel better ,,!!!!

Some time ago I knew an Islamic woman who was seriously in love with a Buddhist man.  Her parents strongly objected to their relationship.  I do not know the details but they ended up getting married.  As the relationship was quite strong I believe her parents relented.  They now have two beautiful children and seem very happy.

Myself and my Thai spouse are both hardline Atheists. 

There is never any talk of anything remotely religious in our house. 

Im sure that makes your lives far more honest and realistic..

I know Buddhist women who have converted to Islam to marry Islamic men.

And Buddhist men who have converted to Islam to marry Islamic women.

 

So I assume that to marry an Islamic you must convert to Islam. 

I don’t personally know of any who have converted the other way.

Maybe somebody else has?

We had a saying in Europe: "where there are two religions resting on one pillow, the devil sleeps in between." what highlights the good relationship between different factions of Christianity at that time.

one cannot renounce Islam, and cannot marry someone who has another believe.
(as far as I remember an exception is that a Muslim can marry a Christian wife.)

As far as I know, there are similar rules for some other religions.

Um, I was thinking there isn't a heaven and those stupid enough to believe it would do as their religion tells them, now that part I'm not going into.

 

One question though, did you say "that may last two weeks or so" considering there is a heaven, man that's one hell of an appetite you have there.

it is a requirement of the muslim religion for the non muslim to convert to that faith before they can marry.  The catholic church used to have the same rules many years ago, not sure if they still do. My mum was a non-catholic, dad was a catholic. The catholic religion would not let them marry in a catholic church until mum converted to catholocism, and if they married outside the church the marriage would not be recognised by the church. That was back in the 50's and prior.
