Re: 'Do not Date Lady with Dark Skin or a Muslim'

I didn't know Muslim girls dated (or were allowed to). I thought they were traded to their future husbands for the required number of camels and goats, with or without their approval, but then I did live in Saudi Arabia for a few years so maybe it's different in other Muslim countries. I guess they...

Re: How to recover from an "up to you" faux pas?

I assume the wife considers the phrase ' Up to you ' to be bargirl language and consequently an implied slur. To be honest I think she is being slightly ridiculous but probably best to grovel a bit anyway.

Re: Sri Lankan Airways

Flown with them a couple of times and no problems whatsoever. The stopovers were at an adequate beach hotel 30 minutes from the airport with meal included so no hardship, in fact it broke up the journey quite nicely.

Re: Marriage to a Thai lady: looking for the real answers

The pertinent point is not that she is Thai , it is the 30 year age difference. The question is are you prepared to accept the underlying reasons why she finds a relationship with you attractive ?
