Old Man Asks for Dowry Refund After His 17yo Wife Leaves

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Damn, she's already looking for the door.


I bet it was the professional photographer at the wedding who held up this Samsung phone and told her to look over at the door.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

he will get it back
my gf's sister married a local guy, he paid $3,000 dowry, after a week she went back home and had to pay him back the $3,000
She was with him for almost a year and her father doesn't seem inclined to give back the money. So he's not getting it back, it's probably long spent.

To be fair, he doesn't look particularly excited either.. And what's that lady spraying on him? Has he got
Spoiler:
body odour
hence why the bride is looking and breathing the other way? thumbdown

Look, let's face it....forget about the age gap...it's just a case of poor personal hygiene which caused them to argue daily. Now being an older dude, he's a bit set in his ways..sorta like trying to teach an old dog new tricks..and he just doesn't wanna use deodorant.

No wonder the girl wants out.. :dragonchase:
That's the bit that happens at the end of the wedding, your guests pretend to do your hair, the other one'll have a pair of scissors. Out with the old, in with the new, etc.

Don't worry Clutch, you'll find out all about this ceremony once you decide to make Mrs. Cargo an honest woman. :whip:

Ah, I must confess my knowledge of the intricacies of khmer weddings is very limited. I went to one 2 months ago but didn't stay long on account it was a fair way out of PP and our car lift driver wanted to go early. Mrs Cargo is taking a day off work to go to one in a few days out at Kirirom..half way to Snook apparently..I'm passing on that.
