    Marriage Amendment Act doesn't define gender by chromosomes, but by 'gender markers' if I remember correctly.

    Australians can also have their birth certificates and other forms of identification changed to reflect the new gender. From the 'highly' reputable source of wiki:

    I know a Swedish guy who married Emma (google her name, "she's" the most famous ladyboy in Thailand and has done a lot of porn) but then split up after he realised "she" couldn't bear him any children.

    This may be the case - this is not an area I have looked into!

    In Australia same sex people cannot legally marry. If a ladyboy was able to legall change her sex to female then you could marry (assuming you are a man).

    But pretty much the same laws apply to defactos here. You could enter into a relationship and sponsor her for a permanent visa without marriage.

    Marriage. a legal registered one, wouldn't be allowed in Thailand I think.

    I have seen young people turn into ladyboys. It is certainly not done for prostitution reasons or financial reasons but seems a natural progression for some. In Thailand it is more accepted than it would be here. Some men just start dressing and identifying themselves as women. No big deal.;)

    How do you explain the disproportionate amount of LB's in Scamland? It's not something in the water, it's a career choice. I think you've been there before? You should know many don't have a genuine gender identity disorder. Some do it until their 30's then remove the makeup, cut their hair and go back to being a man.

    Yes it's a lifestyle and career choice for many and they also think it's fun.

    Yes, it is definitely not commonly accepted here. Well, it can be, but perhaps just a matter of time when general population are open to this concept

    I remember a night out with a friend of mine, where she has spotted her father in a dress, the family has never been the same ever after that

    After 10+ personal trips to Thailand and experienced it all. A foreigner falling in love with a Thai girl is the biggest scam in Thailand.

    They will push you to send them money and buy land in their name which you will never own.

    Proceed with caution.

    With that said i love thai girls they are fun :) Just don't get life earned assets mixed up with them.

    Gotta say I agree with most of the guys here and recommend you avoid Thai women unless you want to get ripped off. Have fun with them for a few hours but never marry one. They are all scammers and can play a long game so never think "your girl is different" otherwise you're another sucker.

    Yes I married a Thai lady and got played like a fool. Got her a visa and we lived in Brisbane. She was always making excuses to send money back to her family and cleaned me out slowly. I later found out she was working as a prostitute on the side. I thought she was different but she divorced me and took half my assets. This all happened over the space of 6 years.

    Where and how did you meet? That might hold the answer to how you ended up with a Thai girl who ripped you off.

    My mate met his Thai wife at an international conference, they both work for Accenture. Yes, believe it or not, not all women live and work in Pattaya.

    I met her through work colleagues at the university she worked at as a lecturer in Chiang Mai. Believe me you don't have to visit Pattaya to find bad Thai women, they are all over the country. I've never been to Pattaya.

    How long has your mate been with his Thai wife? Their true colours will start to show after 4-7 years so tell him to be careful. They can easily play a long game to set themselves up for life. We call it the "long con".

    I know someone who married one and he knew within a week what she's like ie:champagne tastes with cordial money lol.

    Anyhow,you were burnt but you can't say all thai's are like that.

    I could say the same thing about my ex and she's an ozzie.

    She couldn't take me to the cleaners as all i had at the times was CC debt :D

    My dad's friend just married a Vietnamese woman from Vietnam in her 30s few years ago. Currently they are talking divorce.
    He says she and her sisters and parents come over for holiday often, and he has to pay for all their expenses. And the girls don't do any housework. Only wants to enjoy life. When he wants to cut down on spending, they start to complain. In the end, he couldn't take it and now the Viet woman wants a divorce because she thinks she married a cheapskate, and she brought their newborn baby back to Vietnam. Now she is demanding a settlement in exchange for the baby that he loves a lot.

    Also heard the story of a Singaporean guy who married another viet woman, and she and her family asking him to send money to Vietnam to support the whole family's living expenses (food, electric, grocery, brother wants to set up a business needs capital, mother would like to build a new house, sister wants to buy this and that, etc).
