Either you are too lazy or too much in a hurry to read the numerous posts concerning how to marry in Thailand.

I certainly hope that you have selected your wife in the same manner.

I suggest you read the numerous posts on the board. Just about every question you want to know about marriage, sin sod, buying a house, murders in Thailand, etc is here.

Hi Louis:

I have done a lot of research and have come to the conclusion that the easiest way to establish, establish a business, or marry in Thailand is very much like this:

1) Lose your mind.

Hmm... , I think that’s all it takes, really.

Best regards,

This information is all over the Internet, Google it...

A legal marriage in Thailand consists of both parties registering their marriage in person with the local Thai Amphur (Civil Registry Office).

[ The United States does recognize the validity of such a marriage.]

1. Complete an affidavit at the Canadian Embassy, 15th Floor, Abdulrahim Place
990 Rama IV Road
Bangrak, Bangkok 10500

The affidavit form, available upon request, includes all of the information required by relevant Thai law. The form must be completed and notarized at the Embassy. You may download a copy of the form here.

2. Have the notarized affidavit translated. Click here for a list of translators in the Bangkok area.

3. Take the affidavit and translation to:

Legalization Division
Department of Consular Affairs
Ministry of Foreign Affairs
3rd Floor, 123 Chaeng Wattana Road
Tung Song Hong, Laksi District, Bangkok
Tel:(02) 575-1057-8, Fax:(02) 575-1054

4. Take the affidavit and supporting documents to a local Amphur and register yourselves as married. The Amphur will also require the following documents:

Your Canadian passport
If one party is Thai, the Thai citizen's identification card
If either party is under the age of twenty, written permission from the parents (with Thai translation);
If either you or your fiance have been previously married the Amphur will want to see proof that prior marriages have been terminated; either divorce or death certificates. These documents, if available, should be translated into Thai prior to presentation at the Amphur.

Simple, and good luck, I hope he's a honey.

Wow! it took our Louis a whole second to ask the most important thing in life - marriage.

Your lack of imagination left a lot to be desired.
