This provision lets a husband seek compensation from a man engaging with his wife, whereas a wife can sue a woman openly having an affair with her husband.

Same sex couples need to identify, who is husband and who is wife.

No topic for the constitution I think...Constitution should have only the basic right for Crown, country, people and religion... all the rest should be arranged in normal laws..

Yes, but a constitution should also cover all, as that one is that root of the system, when the rules and laws are not clear enough or are up for bending and redesign. All the normal laws, must be built to be constitutional, which they of course have found this one not to be. Surely, it isn´t as well, as there can no be any support for the claims in the constitution. It´s just silly claims. What it all goes down to, is that married people must take responsibility. If one sleep around, there is no possibility to ask for compensation from the bedroom guest. That would automatically change man and wife situation to pimp and prostitute. The reality is, that it´s just to accept and move on, or repair as some think is possible.

According to Decha Kittiwittayanan, a well-known lawyer, as per the court's verdict, for the next 360 days, legally married women won't be able to sue any woman involved with their husband. Likewise, legally married men won't be able to claim compensation from a man involved with their wife.

Woohoo guys. Now is your chance to play around with some of those sexy married women or young girls without fear they will have to pay your wife restitution or be sued in the courts. Open season for affairs for the next year. Have fun and do not worry if you get caught haha...

Yes, I agree that the law must be written so as not to discriminate between married couples. 

Also, my preference would be there would be no law against adultery but that adultery could be used as a reason to file for divorce and may be treated as a "breach of contract."

Agreed, marriage does not confer ownership over ones partner, wanting compensation implies you have lost something that you owned.

if they found this unconstitutional, if anyone would bother making the case, various aspect of immigration law like being married to  a Thai male vs female benefits in becoming citizens might count too

The Ombudsman submitted a petition to the Constitutional Court, stating that the terminology of this clause is problematic. It was observed that the language allowed a husband to sue the "adulterer" of any gender, regardless of whether the wife was a willing participant or the affair was open. Conversely, only a wife could sue another woman if the affair was open. This was considered biased and contrary to Section 27 of the Constitution, which ensures equal rights for both genders and forbids discrimination based on gender.

Ok - so what about the Immigration laws that allow a foreign woman married to a Thai man to have a path to citizenship but not a foreign man married to a Thai woman? 

This is gender discrimination too.

That will help with a lot of Falang with bar girls, but what if they are not 'legally' married ? :coffee1:

Funny that. Foreign men can apply for Thai citizenship based on marriage to Thai women, provided they are employed and meet other criteria. The law changed in 2008.

What on earth is going on with Thailand these days? First they legalise weed (although maybe for not much longer) then legalise gay marriage and now this. 

 

Could Thailand finally be getting a bit of common sense?

Foreign men, married to Thai women, do have the right to apply for citizenship.

Not the same criteria as a foreign woman married to a Thai guy.  The marriage alone is the criteria.

Ya'll do know what I'm talking about.  Let's not play word-games like you both have just done.  Ya'll know I'm talking about a path to citizenship based on the marriage being the only criteria.

With a foreign woman married to a Thai guy - the marriage itself IS the only criteria needed.  And if a foreign woman has a Thai guy's kid, the marriage plus the child give her an accelerated path to apply after one year.

There is nothing similar for foreign guys married to a Thai woman or a Thai woman who has had his child.  The criteria for citizenship is the same as for any other person seeking citizenship - with the exception of a foreign woman (better - with the guy's kid).  She has an accelerated path based on the marriage (child) alone.  All I want is the same path based on my marriage as a foreign woman.
