This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

A while ago I was talking to a European acquaintance (dont want to mention his nationality). He fell in love with a local girl and asked the girl's parents for permission to marry her. The parents demanded $35,000. Needless to say, he was baffled with asking 'price' even though he could afford it. He offered them option B: 10k towards the wedding, $200 monthly allowance for the rest of their life, buy them a house and car; and planning on leaving their daughter his inheritance in the event of his death (he didnt mention this one). And the parents still opted for option A. :ugeek:

Sounds like option a could be cheaper.

Very greedy (them) and not too smart (him) He should read "Private Dancer."

BTW/ I was also stupid and eventually it cost me everything in my life, but Private Dancer wasn't around when I marred a Thai witch.
