7 Reasons Why I Probably Shouldn’t Marry a Cambodian Woman

If you have read my previous article, 7 Reasons Why I Should Probably Marry a Cambodian Woman, you may think that I am well on my way to donning a pair of purple M.C. Hammer pants and walking down the aisle with a young Cambodian bride. Not true. After further consideration, I have realized that there are seven equally compelling reasons why I should NOT marry a Cambodian woman. Here they are:

1. I have no idea where we would live.

When a Westerner marries a Cambodian woman, the couple has a very important initial decision to make. Should he move to Cambodia, or should she move to his country?

I don’t think I would be happy living in Cambodia. The type of work I do can’t easily be done in Cambodia. I’m too lazy to start a new career. So if I lived in Cambodia, I would essentially be semi-retired and living off savings. Without anything else to do, I’d undoubtedly become an alcoholic.

My wife, having never seen me work, wouldn’t respect me and would think I was making up stuff about once having a respectable job. Assuming that my wife is not working, we would spend a lot of time sitting in our Cambodian home staring at each other. That would get awkward. I would quickly start fabricating excuses to leave the house for no reason. She might then accuse me of having an affair, and I would have to say “No honey, I don’t have a girlfriend, I was just wandering the sweltering, filthy streets of Phnom Penh to get away from you for a few hours.” Not good.

Bringing my Cambodian wife to America would be an even worse idea. At least in Cambodia she would have friends, family, and a whole life outside of interacting with me. If I moved her to America, she would have none of these things. She’d end up sitting in my suburban house alone all day while I work. She’d have no one to interact with other than me. There’s no public transport near my house. Well, there’s probably a bus stop within walking distance, but no one rides the bus in America except creepy bus people.

I couldn’t foist her off on my family; my closest family lives 2,000 miles way. I’m an anti-social prick with few friends to introduce to her. My friends are mostly older, married professionals with wives in their mid-40’s. Their wives are not going to want to befriend my 22 year old, smoking hot Cambodian wife.

It would probably be difficult for a young Cambodian woman to get a driver’s license in the USA right away. The written driving tests require English proficiency, and Americans tend to frown on people who drive on the wrong side of the road for 100 meters before making a left turn.

So imagine my wife spending all day cooped up alone in my house, waiting patiently until I arrive home from work in the early evening. After work, I usually just like to eat dinner and sit around the house typing immature comments on internet discussion forums. But my stir crazy wife would undoubtedly want me to take her out of the house every evening to go to the beauty salon or buy tampons or whatever it is that women normally do when men are working. And what about weekends? I don’t want to spend my Sundays chauffeuring a woman on chick errands, when I could be doing something more productive, like watching twelve consecutive hours of NFL football.

2. I don’t want the stigma of marrying an Asian woman.

As I have previously mentioned, the stigma of being 40 years old and never married is quite bad. The stigma of being 40 and suddenly married to a 22 year old Southeast Asian woman could be worse. Sure, my co-workers would probably stop thinking “He must be gay.” Instead, they would think, “What a schmuck. And that poor, poor girl. I wonder what sick things he does to her at home.”

My Cambodian wife and I would be an obvious mixed race couple with a noticeable age difference. People in America might stare. Some Americans would see her brown skin and assume that I married my Mexican cleaning lady. Others might guess that I got my dark skinned Asian wife from the Philippines. That would be the worst. Only desperate losers marry women from the Philippines.

I suppose there are similar stigmas when marrying women from other countries. But if I marry a hot young Ukrainian bride, at least she would be white. People wouldn’t know she was a green card-seeking golddigger until she opened her mouth.

3. Cambodian women don’t age well.

Every year people buy hundreds of thousands of puppies. They enjoy their cute puppy antics for a while. Then the puppies become unattractive, smelly, loud, annoying, dogs. So their owners get sick of them and abandon them at the dog pound.

Young Cambodian women are a lot like puppies. When they are in their late teens and early twenties, they are exceptionally cute. They are fun and playful and they always act excited to see you. Sometimes they pee on your foot.

But after age 30, these cute young Cambodian women quickly turn into cackling, wrinkled, pajama-wearing, betel-chewing Medusas. You see very few well-preserved middle aged Cambodian women. The woman in the photo above is only 43.

Of course, today’s generation of middle-aged Cambodian women lived through the Khmer Rouge period, where they were forced into hard labor in the blistering sun and presumably did not have regular access to Oil of Olay. So maybe they should get a pass.

My point is this. When I’m 70 years old, do I really want to be stuck with a fiftysomething year old Cambodian hag, while all my elderly friends at R & R bar are boasting about shagging twenty year old hostesses? No, I do not.

4. I don’t want a half-motodop baby.

Hear me out on this. I don’t like motodops. They are slow-witted, annoying, directionally-challenged imbeciles. It’s not their fault. Most motodops are the genetic product of a poor, uneducated Cambodian father and a poor, uneducated Cambodian mother. We all know the theory about the Cambodian gene pool being weakened by Pol Pot killing all the smart people. Motodops are the primary evidence supporting that theory.

If I marry a poor, uneducated Cambodian woman, and then she bears us a child, my kid is going to be 50% Gavinmac weirdo, 50% motodop retard. That’s a very scary thought.

To be honest, I don’t want kids at all, whether genetically disadvantaged or otherwise. I don’t like being around kids for more than ten minutes. I can stand them just long enough to do my Bill Cosby-type routine where I interview them and ask them dumb questions. “How old are you, kid? 5? Do you have a job? I had a job when I was 4.” Then I laugh hysterically and the kid runs and hides behind his mother’s leg. That’s all I know about kids.

But even though I firmly believe that children are overrated, useless scourges of the earth, I realize that my Cambodian wife won’t feel the same way. One of the main reasons why Cambodian women marry white men is so that they can have a half-white baby. Cambodian women dream of proudly holding up that half-white baby in front of their mesmerized friends, like that scene in the beginning of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” when Belloq thrusts the golden idol over the heads of the bowing Hovito warriors. Cambodian women live for that half-white baby worshipping moment.

If an exceptionally pale-skinned guy like me denied my young Cambodian bride her trophy brat, it would be disastrous to the relationship. She would absolutely hate me for it, even if she had agreed to a strict “no baby” clause in our pre-nuptial contract scribbled in lipstick on a hostess bar napkin. Really, a white guy marrying a Cambodian woman and decreeing “but I’ll never give you a half-white baby” is like Julia Child marrying a fat man and declaring “but I’ll never cook for you.” I just couldn’t do that. It’s a dick move.

5. The paperwork sounds like a real hassle.

Marrying a Cambodian woman apparently involves a lot of paperwork. You have to go to the Sangkat. I don’t even know what a Sangkat is. You need documentary proof that you’re single, proof that you make $2500 per month, proof that you’re not a criminal, proof that you don’t have AIDS. Then you need to get this stuff translated. I think the wife needs to get some kind of “family book,” and has to have papers stamped in her village. I’ve heard that dowries may have to negotiated and bribes may have to be paid.

This all sounds like a real headache. And if I want to bring a wife back to the U.S., we need to apply to the U.S. embassy for a marriage visa or a fiancee visa. More fucking paperwork. Endless forms. Photos. Documentary proof that we really know each other. Interviews with officious civil servants. I hear that the whole process can take months or even years. Meanwhile, the waiting period in the U.S. to buy a handgun and kill myself is only three days.

On the other hand, if I find an American woman I fancy, I could marry her at a classy downtown Las Vegas wedding chapel in about two hours. No lengthy paperwork or negotiations. This appeals to me. I’ve always been kind of an impulse shopper.

6. A Cambodian wife would embarrass me in public.

Do you remember the phase you went through between the ages of 13-17 when you were embarrassed to be seen in public with your parents? When you would cringe whenever they opened their mouths in front of your friends? Yeah, I actually never outgrew that.

I’m easily embarrassed by the slightest social faux pas committed by myself or my companions. Now, one of the entertaining aspects of hanging out with young Cambodian women is that they can be spontaneous, carefree, and naive, and you never know what funny thing they are going to say next. I would absolutely hate those qualities in a wife though. l already have enough social anxiety without worrying about my wife saying something ridiculous in public at any moment. I’m afraid that if I married a Cambodian woman, I could turn into an obnoxious husband who is constantly “shushing” my wife because I’m afraid that she may suddenly ask the waitress whether potatoes come from the ocean.

Or consider this scenario. Imagine that I take my Cambodian wife to a nice dinner party in America. Imagine that she dazzles my friends and co-workers with her natural beauty, grace, and charm for the better part of three hours. And then, just as dessert is served, she takes the opportunity during a lull in the conversation to stick her right index finger about two inches up her nostril for no apparent reason. Really, some of these Cambodian women are just cute little public-nose-picking-embarrassment-ticking-time bombs. You never know when they are going to start excavating in there.

7. I would always wonder if she really loved me.

So there’s that.

I might initially be fairly happy with a beautiful young Cambodian wife, even if I knew that part of the reason why she married me was for financial security. I don’t have a problem with that right now. I’m OK with her not loving me in the “Western sense.”

But over the years, I think feelings of resentment would eat away at me. I would wonder if she would have preferred to marry a Cambodian guy her own age, had the economic situations been equal. I would wonder if she really wants to be with me or if she just likes central air conditioning and the “holographic chat” feature on her new iPhone 17. Every time she asked for a bit more money for her family, I would wonder whether that was the main reason why she married me in the first place.

My insecurities would probably just get worse as I get older and closer to death, with the awareness that my younger wife might only be sticking around for her pending windfall inheritance. At the very least, I would probably end up as a bitter, half-senile 80 year-old man who loudly whispers to all the visitors to our house, “You know, she only married me for money. She never loved me. And she steals forks.”

      Its easy to run down cambodian woman aske your self why are you there in the first place. Trust a yank to give an American view of Cambodia.if you really want to fit in with these people try living along side them move in with a Cambodian family. Go to sleep when they do wake up when they do.and do there work for the same money as they do. You Americans really piss me off. You think your better than any one else. I was based in Singapore in 1967 for three years and and traveled to most parts of Asia. I’ve lived in Thailand at the age of 40 but instead of staying in a hotel and moaning about the women in your life. Why the fuck did you not learn any think. I’ve lived with Thai families woke up at 4 am in the mornings to go and plant rice.eat your meals and go to the temple with Thai people. Then you will be excepted.like all yanks all mouth and gum.and over weight. Go home yank and live alone.

        Wow.. an original post from 2010 and a stinging response here in 2013… Hmmmm

        Both the original post and the “Eric” response are filled with “stereotypes du jour”.. This rant starts with the typical “WASP-like” rage on dark Filippina ladies to the offsprings of Cambodian couples and is so masterfully complimented by the likes of “You Americans really piss me off.” and the “like all yanks all mouth and gum.and over weight. Go home yank and live alone.”

        We have on person being anti-asian and another person responding to the anti-asian poster with an anti-american posting.

        Do anti-american rants justify racist rants against Asians??

          You are right! Go home and live your crazy life alone… You really piss me off too, American! The way you try to stereotype Cambodian women is so pissed off. Cambodian women are not the way you think they are. Don’t ever attempt to make a generalization about Cambodian women in such a stupid way. You should study some other lessons about them before jumping to conclusion, dude. Do just consider a single person’s good and bad points, and weigh out if the bad points of that person may apply to all who are the peer individuals of that mentioned series. Or did you just experience with a Cambodian lady and she had cheated you? Additional research should be done by you, American… We have a beautiful tradition and culture with which American’s ones or others can not compare.

        Wow, I’m very impressed with the article above. I am a Cambodian woman and I’ve never ever wanted to marry to a any American or European or whoever beside my Cambodian man. You know why? Some of the reasons are that if I marry to one of them I will have to change my culture from being a polite, lovely, soft, honest, care, hardworking woman, to crazy stupid alchoholic, drug, pollute the environment around like most of them. And you should be willing to accept the truth that you come to SouthEast Asia for girls because non of the pretty women in your country would look at you. Why? Because you are ugly and dirty mind 😉

          I agree with the CambodianLady. You, Gavinmac, before stereotyping us, the Cambodian women, you’d better learn more about our culture. We lack of education but it doesn’t mean all the motodup and poor women are genetically rude, weak and uneducated. That’s racist! At least most of us know how to behave and give a proper speech better than you and you know what, you think it’s embarrassing to introduce her to people and the public, it’s because you don’t love the woman for real, literately she’s Cambodian is not the main thing.

          After reading this passage. I was really disappointed with you. Your words like an idiot. You speak like a bastard. You are so proud of yourself, your country, and your people. Do you think, white people are awesome? Don’t talk like you’ve never been to school. Don’t try to put Cambodian women down and do not try to put Asian women down. We never say anything against American women. So respect us like we respect yours. One thing, no matter how proud you are, you still die like us. You have no magic to live forever. If you are so free to say bad things about the others, you should say somethings good and acceptable. Do not just post and make yourself worse. Be mature and make people respect you as you are old man.

        They’ve different values. Asian cultures tend to think more about family, and appear to care more about the well being of relations. I’d ask more why he being forty-ish while writing this he doesn’t try for someone who is closer to his age. Also, to my understanding, Cambodians tend to be Buddhist so they would assume consideration and well bred mannerism, even if many of the educated died off. I can’t speak because, I myself come from an educated family that ages well. I suppose we are the exception. Sounds as if he lived most of what he spoke of. Best of happiness. It was nice reading his post, as there are some insightful gems here and there, and his writing style is easy to read. It’s good that he thinks about appearing dumb because a lot of these White American think it’s cool to be seen with much younger Asian women, but in actuality it might mean more that he is immature and unable to attract someone who is of a mature mentality, it would also mean/appear creepy, unnatural, and taking advantage of the naive. I always think, when an older person pursues a younger girl…that they are selfish and cheating her of her opportunity for happiness with someone who she’d better relate with during her age of peak human development. It should be the man who knows better because of the acquired age, but age doesn’t mean morality, nor does it distinguish palpable value in the real world when it comes to being blameless nor does it lead to intelligent lifestyles.

        • McMan Reply

          Asian culture is like American culture from the 30s, 40s and 50s. Frankly, that’s the main reason American’s look to other countries for women. A great majority of American women are very superficial.

          American Baby Boomers are family oriented and that stems from a Christian upbringing. Most Boomers are educated, hard working, loyal and caring.

          In the US, older men with younger women are creepy, unless the man is a celebrity, then it’s A-OK! Sadly, celebrities are treated like gods in the US.

          Getting back on track: You speak of the older man cheating the woman out of a happiness with someone she’d better relate to, bla, bla. Last time I checked, the women have a choice too. They may be naive in their 20s, but I’m sure they know who they can stand to be with and who they can’t.

          frankly, I don’t look at age, or nationality as a barrier against real love. Maybe the person is your age, maybe she’s older and maybe younger. I do draw the limit at 32, but I don’t particularly care what anyone thinks of my choice in a women. I would also make it a priority to learn as much about her culture as possible and learn her language.

          My best friend is 49 and married a 25 yr old Asian woman. She is doing great in America and all that paperwork isn’t as involved as the OP comedian describes. In fact, even though they live in Tenn, she has found local gathering places for people from her country and has many friends. They had a child (my Godson), who is 2 now and they are an active family with lots going on in life.

          Getting to the story that started all this: The OP was writing a comedy bit that got a little too personal and offended people. It was meant tongue in cheek and odds are, the guy already has a Cambodian wife and probably speaks the language too. However, he did go too far and I was embarrassed as an American reading some of the things he said. He was going for laughs, but I didn’t find it funny.

          For all those who accuse American’s of being bigots, I suggest you take a look in the mirror and fix yourself before you point out the shortcomings of others.

          Someday I might meet a Cambodian woman and if we seem right together, it won’t matter to me, where she grew up, how educated she is, or, how well she’s going to age. Love is love and it crosses all boundaries.

        Interesting article that I stumbled across. While I think the OP is kind of a loser so to speak just from his treatment of the subject, the other people ranting anti-American sentiment are even more retarded. We understand that all you fools want to rush into the United States, we didn’t invite you, you asked to come. Then you whine… and whine… and whine some more. If you don’t like America, go somewhere else. Oh wait! There is no-where else to go, in Cambodia for example, if you could effectively exercise any human rights you might become a target… yeah.. really a garden spot.. and we need more of this crap here in America? I think not. The 5th World belongs in the 5th World…

        Cambodia woman will get a job and make her own money if she needs the money. She will work in the donut shop or prefer to work in the odd job to earn the money in order to send back home some. Cambodia woman is a little hard working compare with the Philippine women .

        Cambodia woman:
        Hard working, family oriented, and send money home to help family.

        Philippine Woman:
        Not like to work, family oriented and like to send home money.

        American woman:
        Work hard, maybe family oriented, but not willing to give up her money to her family or event her husband.

        Hey Eric, Just shows what aSSholes you guys are saying that all Americans are alike just because you read something from one asshole. I worked in Thailand for the Thai navy for 5 years. I worked along side Thai people the entire time. Even enough of them spoke English for me to do my work I put forth the effort to learn the language. About my third year there I went up country and met a wonderful girl in a restaurant that was busy so the waitress sat s together. We have been married for abut 12 years now. When first getting serious and visiting her and ever since I stayed at her family house out in the jungle. I loved it there and still do. HOWEVER, you ERIC are a DUMB ASSUMING A$$HOLE YOURSELF.

      Really? Hmm. That’s an interesting viewpoint considering I’m Cambodian. I guess those are one way of looking at things. So you care a lot about what others think instead of your own happiness? I have always found myself attracted to American Men, but I was raised American so… Being born in CA and all, but I can careless about the roots in Cambodia – living there or w.e. I say fuck it, life’s short. Soon enough, everyone’s integrating and having mixed children anyway. My child will come beautiful as a mixed breed lol. But to be fair, I only had to skim the article. I’m sad for you. I hope you find happiness some day.

        ^ Lol, she’s right. Not ALL Cambodian women look for money. You could very much say the same about all hispanics, all Africans, or all Eastern Europeans, that they are all gold diggers and only want you for green cards. The problem is, you don’t know this, and is because of that that you better be sure about the woman you marry.

        As for the aging bit, I’m not so sure about that one lol. I mean, you have only one picture of an old Cambodian lady who seems she has worked the fields. I am sure women who are well educated and don’t work in the fields age rather well.

        As for the ridicule and all, I don’t think that’s very accurate. I mean, I would date a woman way older than me or younger than me (there are limits though!) As a 24 year old man I don’t find it odd dating an 18 year old, of course 18 year olds are immature for the most part but hell, I’ve also dated 30 year old women :/ and manners are important for you, so get out there and find a Cambodian woman that fits the bill, don’t just marry anyone.

        I agree with you, CambodianLady – this guy is a bit of an embarrassment. I realize it was meant to be funny… but it was really just a bunch of awful stereotypes and sexism. Writing out a lot of offensive crap is an incredibly cheap way to approach humor. He mentions that he’s forty and single in this article – so maybe it was just a piece of underplayed satire (?). In any case, all Americans are not like this (is this guy American?) He could never get away with spouting this level of terribleness out loud back home, so he has turned to the internet. His article is like a troll in blog form. As a woman (born in the States) who lives in Cambodia, I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to live in this nation. My female Khmer friends are indeed lovely, soft, honest and caring and any man would be lucky to have any one of them… although I doubt they would have much interest in a middle aged Western bigot.

I live in the Philippines and for 10 years went in and out of the country going to various countries to teach English. When I’m not doing that I’m teaching English online to Chinese and Vietnamese. This pays $9-$12 an hour and because of the low cost of living it’s not so hard to survive. Got to think positive about what you can do instead of thinking inside a box.

    Most of these reasons wouldn’t be an issue if the girl was fairly intelligent and hard-working (and there are a few if one cares to look outside the bars). The killer is the baby thing, though. I’ve only ever met two single Cambodian women who didn’t want a child; thankfully I’m married to one of them. The other other could be your type, but she’s a bit feisty.

Unless shes the type that goes to the salon more than once a week, in which point you can be sure that she is using your money to support one or more khmer boyfriends. Sny ha pro steiw.

    I thought the major point of getting married was about having children, especially in a traditional society, maybe there are others though.

  5. ken svay Reply

    All very valid points and wonderfully expressed as usual.
    After my self induced breakup I realised that cambodian women all want white babies,but then so do western women.
    A black one would not be welcome at all,would it?
    Living around psar ja recently has opened my eyes to the numbers of goan kat around-heaps of them.
    Cambodian women are also desperate to get married,to anyone white or khmer.
    Its ingrained in the culture.
    In my experience most cambodian women dont want to leave cambodia,the isolation in the west would kill them-it suffocates me.
    As for the bad habits who cares, if the woman is smoking hot your mates will even forgive the nose picking.
    I would love to have my ex back despite the drawbacks-women always have drawbacks anywhere in the world.
    I received a call tonight which maybe suggests that all may be well after all.

        And there are scores of Cambodian women married to Black men (by Choice!) in the USA. (And I’m sure elsewhere, however; I can only speak for the USA where I live and see with my OWN eyes & hear with my OWN ears.) Whilst it (sometimes) appears the Khmer parents prefer White-American mates for their children; sometimes the Cambodian parents /families are sometimes more accepting than the White parents / families. (P.S. And please, not all their African-American spouses are thug-type either, but rather professtionals.) ^_^

    ”Bringing my Cambodian wife to America would be an even worse idea. At least in Cambodia she would have friends, family, and a whole life outside of interacting with me. If I moved her to America, she would have none of these things. She’d end up sitting in my suburban house alone all day while I work. She’d have no one to interact with other than me.”

    You could always relocate to Long Beach CA or Lowell, Massachusetts. That could be one way of squaring the circle.

      you could always marry and bring her to Minneapolis. Many Cambodians settle here in Eden Prairie. Or you could just come to minneapolis and pick out one of the 40 year olds that previously married and already had their kids, work hard, are still pretty hot, don’t want any more kids and consider good white men in their 40’s to be cute.

    Contrary to the assumptions of GM, KS and just about everyone else, not all Cambodian women want to get married. There is a significant exception – the Cambodian woman who doesn’t want babies. Yes, they do exist, but you guys are looking in the wrong places. I’m referring to the career-minded woman. Cambodian culture hasn’t learned to accept the career mom yet; the only way a woman can focus on a career and avoid the disruption of child-rearing is avoiding marriage. You see, you are all assuming Cambodian WOMEN want babies; no one stops to realise that it is the same for Cambodian MEN. Who among you ever met a Cambodian man who didn’t wants kids? I’ll bet none of you ever even raised the topic in conversation, such is the unquestioned assumption. A careerist Cambodian woman knows that a Cambodian husband would expect her to sacrifice her career for his children. Therefore, there is a small but significant group of highly educated, dynamic, hot, heterosexual women destined to be spinsters. If only a supportive guy who didn’t want kids was out there. Get in!

    • theboss Reply

      If you think there are really “careerist” ( sic ) women out there who do not want children you are sadly deluded.

      • Dermot Sheehan Reply

        If you think that a “career” is a good substitute for a family, I think you are sadly deluded. While it may be common for “modern” people to fool themselves into thinking that their job and financial future is more important than having kids, they usually realize late in the game that they have lost out on a hugely important part of life. Thus we end up with the desperate and expensive efforts of fertility clinics trying to make up for lost time that elderly and by that time sterile couples have to deal with.

    I normally don’t post on this site but this is too good to pass up. Gavinmac did two funny and astute pieces at the same time and he has it right on all counts with all his 14 reasons. But just like with white women you can’t lump them all together. I got married to a divorcee with kids (I have one of my own too). Since we got on in age a little I know what I am talking about and I cannot confirm that Khmer women don’t age well. It all depends on the social circumstances. You got money for your wife to get pampered, she will probably look good in her 40ies and 50ies. I took my Khmer wife to the U. S. (Florida) and she adapted quite well with nary another Cambodian national in sight. We relocated back here for business purposes not because she felt lonely. You get ugly old hags in the West and here; men here usually don’t marry because of looks; the match must make sense, love will come later. But how about sex? Smoking hot doesn’t mean she is a good lay, right? Some never learn, others are quite adventurous and normally Khmer women have a more natural attitude towards things sexual than Western women, but I may be out of tune on that, being in my last third of life already.

    On balance, the pros outweigh the cons by a significant degree, not only in GM’s pieces but more importantly, in real life. I have been married to a Cambodian for a number of years and none of the above points apply, except one, but with a 180° twist : I am probably more of an embarrassment to her in public than the hypothetical bride in your piece would be to you – and I suspect the same applies to most mixed couples.

    You didn’t mention the 2 days long marriage ceremony. To me having to get up at 6am was almost a deal breaker. But then we ended up making money out of the marriage ceremony so it made up for it 😉

  18. Shasta Reply

    Funny as always Gavin. I know this is comedy but a couple of counterpoints.

    1) I would not worry too much about where you live, if you live anywhere around a major city. If I remember right you are in Vegas. I am sure they have a large Cambodian population. I know they have several asian markets. I used to live about 200 miles west of there, in the high desert. I figured there would be no Cambodians but I knew 40 or 50 of them by the time we moved. I now live around Sacramento. About three months ago the house beside mine sold. I now have a very nice Cambodian couple living right next door. As far as the drivers license in California they can take it in Khmer, assuming you girl can read that. I am pretty sure they only have one version of the test and they all pass it around.

    2) Well not much way around that if you marry a 20 year old but I am sure you will get over it.

    3)In the west they seem to do ok. Well better than me anyway. Hell many of the ones in the city are half Chinese anyway.

    4) No way around that one. They all want a kid.

    5)Paperwork is pretty easy especially if you get married in the States. Hell I got married in the city hall in Vegas. Of course I did have to do the two day show wedding in Cambodia but don’t remember any paperwork.

    6)I am sure anytime my wife has embarrased me I have more than paid her back for it. The nose picking thing does bother me though.

    7)Most of them seem like they do love their husbands if they treat them well. It is really no different than marrying Cambodian American husbands. Lots of Elephant Man looking Khmers married to drop dead gorgeous imported girls.

      Hello all KhmerGirl;
      I am glad to read your comment, and I hope to have a good help from you all, please reply.

      I am a Cambodian like you, I am 65 years old. Every years I went to Thailand, Cambodia, or Vietname. I have a good time and I get a lot of girl friends (Vietname, Thai, and Khmer). Must of them are prostitute, I am not mind because I am a old man, that I want is a beautiful and young lady who can make a Children.

      As a Khmer, I still love my country, and I want to marry a Cambodian lady and bring her to the USA, hoping to help her and her family out of hardlife, but Khmer government makes a new rules that 50 years old man cannot marry to Cambodian lady.

      My girlfriend and I we have a plan to make 4 Children, even I am old but I have enoughf of money to take care my children, and hopefull they will get a very good education in the USA, in the future. and also will help my country …etc
      If, I really cannot marry her because of a rule of Mariage, and I am really want to have the children, I need to marry a Vietnam or Thail girlfriend.

      In my mind, I fell that, my girl friend Cambodian have a right to do a prostitution, but she does not have a right to marry a man who she loves. She is treated like a pig or a dog, that the owner choose a male for her. How do you think about my case ?. and my felling ?

      In Cambodia, the farmer choose the male pig for a female; in the USA the farmer choose a male dog for a female.

        I thought the 50 year old marriage rule only applied to outsiders NOT Cambodian men. This was to stop Westerners trafficing in children, which went on a lot with Cambodian children. I would check your facts with a Cambodian judge before accepting that it is fact.

          Matt, you clearly don’t understand that a lot of Asian cultures don’t embrace and use sarcasm the way that we do in Western culture. That’s why these Cambodian people are understandably offended by this article. Most of them don’t realize it is meant to be funny and would not appreciate the joke even if they did.

          While I definitely get a grin out of these types of articles, they don’t do much ease cultural tensions between foreigners and locals. And neither do your hostile, unsympathetic responses to these comments.

          Also, just because someone’s mastery of English has room for improvement does not make them illiterate. They may very well be literate in their own language (surprisingly, English is not the only language on the planet). How many languages are you “literate” in, I wonder?

          I must say that you seem to be lacking quite a bit of brainpower yourself. I hope that with your non-existent perception of cultural differences that you’re not actually living here.

          • Cara

            Asian people do not need to go to USA to know that the country has the statue of liberty. Similarly, how ironic it is when you expected someone to appreciates the joke where you are the subject of the joke. Try standing in the middle group of people who are bullying you and then you may feel something out of your precious literate brand. I somehow still think that Asian people are ways better with language. We do know more languages than your white people do and also we at least have this culture of Saving Face. To you it is funny but to us it called Rude. ” I hope that with your non-existent perception of cultural differences that you’re not actually living here” quoted from your comment! I think out of all people you deserve to learn this the most. Go literate with the culture man!!! Go to clean your own backyard before criticizing the knowledge of other people. At least Asian people know English language (I meant English not American.

            I understood his use of sarcasm, however there is always some truth is sarcasm. I think people use sarcasm because they lack patience and tolerance. Sarcasm doesn’t seem to usually come from a wholesome place when it’s applied, and silence usually does the job better when tact is not applied. Truth doesn’t exist when anger is expressed.

  29. Nada Reply

    In the seven reasons you list, I only see two entirely valid ones:

    1. I have no idea where we would live.
    5. The paperwork sounds like a real hassle.

    For Thailand, it is even worse. She has no right to stay in your country and you have no right to stay in hers. You will need to find a country where both of you would have the right to stay. The list of countries where this is possible is shrinking rapidly.

    The NGOs are also managing to finally close the net around mixed marriage in Cambodia. They have managed to push through a new rule that says that if you are above 50 or do not make at least 2500 dollars/month, the marriage is illegal.

    If your circumstances violate these rules in any way, you could not reasonably even pretend to have the intention to marry your Cambodian girlfriend. Any money or other financial advantages that change hands, therefore amounts to prostitution, which is illegal, and carries a mandatory, minimum 5-year jail sentence for both of you. So, you will go to jail, while she will end up in a prostitute re-education camp.

    Since the NGOs are well in to the orphanage business too, they will happily take over any leftover kids, that they will raise to be well-groomed, properly gender-mainstreamed individuals who actually respect women, instead of being such brutal savages by sleeping with them!

TTT man, please carry your dirty commenting, and go back to schools to study about Cambodia… Please remember, Cambodia in last 2000 years started by Cambodian woman, and in last 1000 year Cambodia is a greatest culture in the world.

      Hey idiot, it is your fault that you go and find prostitute and you are the stupid man. I think you spend the money for travel just for having sex with the girl. Mind your word that you say Cambodia is a prostitution country. What do you know about my country? If you do not know anything just shut your mouth and go back to your own country. Yes, you better go to other country if you want to have sex with prostitute.

        Kanika I agree with what you say. I met a very beautiful Kanika when I visited Cambodia with my husband early this year. She was beautiful in body and heart. She and her family were warm and generous to us. We would be very proud to have her as part of our family. So many people who have posted here, especially the men, are obviously what Cambodia is trying to prevent with their 50 yr rule which, unfortunately also penalises those who do want to marry because they love each other.

    This is just plain funny writing.
    Some of the criticisms voiced here make me wonder what Woody Allen would have experienced if he’d put some of his short stories on some randomly chosen Jewish-American website.
    If Mark Leyner had put “He Has A Car Bomb” on an Iraqi website in 2012, people might not instantly recognize the humor. (Do a Google search. It’s worth it.)

    I’m not sure all cultures even HAVE irony as a form of humor. I was on a sales call in a Vietnamese home, and looking at a picture of their three absolutely, jaw droppingly gorgeous daughters, I said “Too bad your daughters aren’t pretty.” The father grunted.
    They later complained to my manager that I had insulted their daughters. I sent a letter of explanation. But this is where cross-cultural misunderstandings can come from.

    Anyway, give me a 180 pages of short stories like this, and I’ll buy it. And you will be an underground hit in any number of dorms.

    But the humor-challenged will complain about your insensitivity.
    What ARE you supposed to do them if they can’t take a joke?

      Funny you’ve mentioned Woody Allen and his short stories. If only he can add a non-fiction piece about his present wife who is also his adopted daughter (with the age difference of 34) then that would really spice up this thread. Now do you think she married him truly out of love? Maybe some young girls fancy heavily wrinkled scrotum like a turkey’s wattle.

        It’s crazy that someone well educated would write something so ignorant. All women age differently. I am proud to say I am Cambodian and well educated. My family overcame many obstacle here in the U.S. but we all graduated from great Universities and some of us are working on our masters. My parents worked many jobs so we would go and further our education. There were 7 of us. My mom got spit on, beaten and treated differently because we were not of the same color or speak clear English. She taught all my siblings that ignorance is always temporary and knowledge is one of the keys to having a better life, beside treating others the way we wanted to be treated.

        My mom and sisters are beautiful in everyway, young and old. All of my Cambodian friends are beautiful and well educated. But don’t shun the less educated not all of us cambodians have the opportunities to walk the same walks. But without the we won’t have our business’s run, hospitals/ homes cleaned and etc.

        Like my mom always said “Use ignorance as a stepping stone.” Its true for me, my family and friends.
        We are: nurses, dr’s, Chemical engineers, business owners, pharmacist, the list goes on.

        Beauty is inside and out. Intelligents can come the educated and uneducated at times.

        For you to say Cambodian in general makes you sound a tad ignorant. Women are women in all races.

        In our cambodian culture we take care of our family. If your wife is asking for money to send overseas and it’s constant. Ask why so frequently. Or just grow a backbone and learn to say “No.” I help my siblings overseas but I have no problem saying no when it isn’t justifiable. If it can’t be justified my favorite word,”No” is quite handy.

        Don’t go by hear say go by what you experience. I apologize if it you or your friend(s) that went through whatever they went through but don’t let that jilt/tormented heart distort he true realities of an everyday event. People get used face it its all nationalities. Stop stereotyping Cambodians.

        As far junior little falling for ms young hottness. Lol. All I have to say is shame on you. Men and women across the board can agree its not love don’t mistaken heat and passion for love especially when you have only experienced the boom boom room. And if and when have junior little. Just remember its half yours. You can’t blame your wife for having a motodop baby, because behind all the weird you might have a slow mo gene in the mix. Lol. (pay attention in biology or pickup a book in genetic)

        Last but not least. Love is used so loosely here by men and women. Use the term in you heart. Love is kind, uncondional and respectful. You marry someone you love not someone you have keep looking over your shoulder with. Whatever happened in the whole ideas of getting to know each other, finding common ground and interest? Do you research. A women of any race is like every race. Don’t judge by its outward appearance get to know them first. And stop letting your pecker do all the thinking.

        My fellow Cambodians Women are just like every other women from every race. Girls dust the stereotype off and lets move like the wind. To much time wasted.

          Your comment reflects a lack of understanding of the intent of GM… is supposed to be funny, and is not serious for the most part.

            So it is OK to write insulting things about another country, it’s people and culture because the writer says it’s humour. Why , in that case, do Americans get their knickers in a twist when someone makes rude comments about America (“the great?”), American culture (Do you have any?)and american people?

  33. Jackson Reply

    Ok, has anyone writing these comments actually been to Cambodia? By the way you drive on the right, same as America. Vietnam and Thailand and most everywhere else in South East Asia drives on the left side. Also if you happen to be in Sihanoukville you will use mostly US currency, except change for a dollar will be in riel. 2,500r = $1.00
    Would I marry a Cambodian woman? If it’s true love, absolutely. And I would live in Cambodia. This might not be a good choice for everyone reading this, but I am 62, retired on a modest fixed income and I know my monthly check will go at least three times further living there. And most Cambodian women love Cambodia. Their families and friends, possibly career or job, maybe college or a trade and a life and belief system that makes perfect sense if you grew up there, understand and accept this.
    And even if you don’t find a Cambodian you wish to marry, just dating lots of beautiful women is not a bad life either. The search for the perfect fit can be quite a rewarding experience! However, better take a close look at some of the taller ones before you get naked (a few ladyboys in the mix) And even with Ankor Draft beer for $1.00 where I stay, I never turned into a alcoholic. I do better with one beer and three women then six beers and no woman or waking up with an ugly one after the six beers wore off!
    Are Cambodian women perfect? Some are. No matter where you go in this world you will find an array of different personalities, and potential partners. It’s just that everything is so affordable there. Wouldn’t you like to be three times wealthier? Rich old guys in the US often have beautiful younger wives, or mistresses because they can afford to! So unless you happen to be rich you may consider going somewhere that seems like you’re rich by comparison. There are many trade-offs in life and it’s not much of a physical experience unless you get out and have a few!

      In Vietnam they drive on the right – same as Cambodia. True many might say they only predominantly drive on the right in Cambodia as those of us who live here know they actually drive on both sides of the road. In Thailand it’s correct they drive on the left.

    • Curious Reply

      Hi Jackson or any other experienced reader;
      I am 63, but fit and athletic, and I was thinking of finding a mate, but on the basis of a 2 or 3 year contract where she would come to Canada, I would feed, educate her etc. give her a monthly allowance and send money back to her family.
      At the end of the 3 years, we either renew or she departs back to Cambodia speaking English and educated with skills that she can use to make her way in the world.
      I should also say that my plan would include a pre-paid return ticket that she could use at any time should she not be satisfied with her situation in Canada.
      I am ending a 40 year marriage and am definitely not interested in a permanent relationship again.
      During the recent past, I happened to come in contact with a Khmer lady and was mesmerized by her. So while GM wrote a very funny article, all the thread dialogue was about MARRIAGE… and that is definitely not in the cards for me.
      I would appreciate your thoughts or any readers thoughts on this as a plan… do you think it is feasible?
      I have money so that isn’t an issue, and I live in a very mild climate on the West Coast of Canada in a beautiful city.
      Whaddya think?

    An extremely humorous article. Brightened up my day! It looks like we have some ultra sensitive people out there (in here!), and some with a huge cross-cultural-understanding ‘deficit’. Well written Gavinmac, even the pic of the alleged 43 year old woman was a classic piece of poetic license (or exaggerated humor!). One for the archives indeed.

    • Chris N Reply

      Humourous to some … offensive to others, especially many(foreigners and Cambodians) with Cambodian associations – insensitive !

      Whatever way you read it, the writer either has no knowledge, or is totally insensitive on the Cambodian genocide and refugee camps in his “…….We all know the theory about the Cambodian gene pool being weakened by Pol Pot killing all the smart people…….”.

      I have lived in Cambodia 19 years, and have a terrific Cambodian wife …. but I never heard that theory that writer says “we all know ….”. I guess we know different parts of cambodia, and maybe he is one of those “foreign bar-boys”, instant experts on everything from local culture to politics, history to ecconomics ….. as observed from a bar stool, rather than from than from the society. At least the author admits he is shallow, which is more than many bar boys do.

      No healthy minded person makes jokes about genocide or refugeee camps, anywhere – Asia, Africa, Europe, elsewhere. Its one of those subjects there is absolutely no funny side to ……… (just as it would be wrong make jokes about the rather smaller scale Sandy Hook Elementary School killings in US recently)

      My Cambodian wife and extended family, like the majority over 25 / 30 years suffered through the genocide and refugee camps, the former actively condoned and abetted by the west in allowing the Khmer Rouge to keep their UN seat. And I have spent significant time working with genocide victims in camps. ……… Its not even a sick joke !

      ….. and for the record, the younger generation of Cambodians now are real in many cases real shakers and movers, with ambition, hard work and frequently through aid programmes, very good (often overseas based / supported) education. Most Cambodian students will beat the pants off western students for enthusiasm and commitment

    Cambodian people, in general, are much more kind and considerate compared to other Southeast Asians. Cambodia used to be a great empire, and it’s sad to see that it’s shrinking to the size it is today because of Vietnam and Thailand. Cambodian people has gone through a lot of heartwrenching turmoil, and to say that Cambodian women are golddiggers may be true, but it’s because they have a lot of burden to carry given their circumstances and their concerns over their family. Who the hell wants to marry someone twice their age if they have nothing substantial to offer? Let’s get real here. I don’t want to sound like a douche, but that’s how it is. If you’re a 40+ something unmarried man, don’t expect to all of a sudden find love picking up an international girl half your age. The fact that she wants a kid is the least you can give her, along with financial stability. You’ve got your whole life to figure out if you want a kid. She can only go so far in age before she literally cannot have her own child. To people saying Cambodian women only wanting koun-kat are stupid. If they’re married to a barang, of course they’re gonna have a koun-kat. How can she decide what ethnicity her child is if her husband’s ethnicity is already barang?

      While I appreciate your comment and understand what you are trying to say, “barang” is not an ethnicity, it’s just a catch-all phrase that Cambodians use for anyone who comes from places outside their small world.

    I agree with Eros, except I think this is not borderline racist, but just plain racist and sexist plus totally mindless. I have never seen so much colonialist, sexist, racist behaviour ever in my whole life, it’s been the biggest shock out of everything that was new to me here in Cambodia and still is. The kind of racism/sexism that would just not be tolerated in the UK.
    Even the term ex-pat to me stinks of colonialist superiority complex, are we not immigrants?

    ‘Imagine that I take my Cambodian wife to a nice dinner party in America. Imagine that she dazzles my friends and co-workers with her natural beauty, grace, and charm for the better part of three hours. And then, just as dessert is served, she takes the opportunity during a lull in the conversation to stick her right index finger about two inches up her nostril for no apparent reason. Really, some of these Cambodian women are just cute little public-nose-picking-embarrassment-ticking-time bombs. You never know when they are going to start excavating in there.’
    I mean what kind of human being actually says something like that about his wife? Like she is some kind of doll? Jesus. yep, sexist, racist, obvious sickeningly boring and depressing that the writer actually exists in Cambodia.

    That’s the pointed, there are still hungry people from rural area who love cash more than a love-life. Yes, Their dad can be Motodop, and you know it. And THOSE ARE THE GIRLS THAT YOU WERE ABLE TO GET THEM.

    I wish you meet a Cambodian women, with fair skin, light, or healthy looking, they’re having a good or average living condition. Believe me, those girls are the person who would take care you the whole life, tell you to walk over the bridge rather than crossing into the river full of crocodiles. Don’t be mad to know this “Those fine ladies never love to marry a white guy or westerners, maybe 5 of 100” .

    If you ever think that you will have a retard kid because of motodop daughter, Man…this is a bit selfish to listen to. You’re just making an excuse since you have not found a correct wife.

      These women with fair skin are those who love the money most. Most Cambodians are obsessed by this nonsense (ie. light skin). They spent for cosmetics to achieve light skin and are frightened of being exposed to sun.

      Why? Because dark people do work, nothing of interest for “healthy looking” Cambodian girl; these rather find some way how to obtain money while not need to work.

  49. Srey Pich Reply

    So I read you’re article and I do not agree with it. I was born in Cambodia and I was adopted age of seven years old. My biological mother was poor and my father left us when she was pregnant with me. She had to support herself and a baby. She raised me for seven years. When I was five years old she contracted AIDs from her ex-boyfriend. She put me up for adoption when I was seven years old and for five years after that I thought she died. Little did I know, she was receiving medical care from Doctors Without Borders. She has been alive since. I visit her as much as I can. Your comment about how Cambodian women do not age well, considering that she’s sick with AIDs, she looks great for a 45 year old mother. I might be biased because she’s my mother, but I don’t think she looks bad.

    I think I turned out fine. I was sick when I lived in Cambodia. I had TB and Hepatitis and lived with parasites. When I moved to the United States I took medication for 6 months. I’m no longer a carrier of either diseases, however I can’t give blood. Also I just graduated high school and I will be attending The University of Pennsylvania, not Penn State. People doubted me, that I wouldn’t catch up with my peers. I believe that if Khmer children had the chance I did, to start my life all over again, they would take that chance and improve their life style. Cambodia isn’t moving up like China is or other Asian countries. They are not given the chance. Orphanages are shut up down and children are no longer allowed to be adopted because 12 years ago a woman that was in charge of an orphanage was accused of “baby buying.”

    I don’t appreciate it when other people look down at us. Many Asian people I know are surprised that I got into an Ivy League school while they didn’t. I worked extremely hard to get myself where I am today. I have pride in my country. We’re strong people because of the Khmer Rouge. We’re not going to let a genocide ruin us and have others look down at us.

    Cambodia is land of cheaters. Don’t give them any money! It is instantly spent/lost. They pretend to love you, but only your money is what they love.

    They are lazy, really dishonest, they love money a lot, they are not smart. But smart enough to find many ways to steal from you. The bigger problem is that they consider it is perfectly justified to destroy your life when they want to steal from you. If they lie to you, they think it proves that they are smarter than you.

    There is not you. They have only a Barang and now how to do it, because he has money, he has house, he has this and that and they want it now.

    Only 10 to 20 % are honest, that is my experience. They are more honest in countryside.

    You sir are a ignorance jackass! I bet you’ve only met one Cambodian girl who torn your heart and now you decided to hate all Cambodian women, maybe other Asian women as well. Okay, I admit some do seem needy but what women isn’t?! I known successful cambodian women. One Khmer girl makes more than you since she is a doctor and I know one who actually looked 17 when she is 30 . So do your research before you start bashing, jerk. Talk about being too picky.

    I regret to inform all the fools who follow this clowns advice, you’ll lead an unhappy life. I married a beautiful Cambodian woman 15yrs. ago. Yes, she is older and so am I. The woman in the picture above is in her 60’s. Nothing should matter if your truly in love. You seem to be a loathing, self centered, low life.
    There are plenty of Khmer communities in the U.S. that make Cambodian immigrants feel at home. Why would anyone be concerned what their friends think about your Khmer wife.

    If some things were reworded differently, it could have been taken as tongue-in-cheek humor, but I see a lot of problems with how the post was structured…

    Just want to comment that I wish # 3 could be true for me. I’m a single, Cambodian woman, 27 years old, but my inability to age as rapidly as other women has been a huuuuge deterrent for me. Men my age won’t approach me because they think I’m still 15-16, and guys who are younger than me become disillusioned once I tell them my real age… And I’m not even doing hardcore facial routines like other Asian women are.

    One could argue that this is because I was born in America and lived the good “Western life” as people here call it, but my mother, who survived the khmer rouge regime in her late teen years, shares the same problem. We look “too young”. I think it’s all genetics.

    But hey, you’re free to generalize. 🙂

    Very well said chay.. And to the author..I’m not even going to try to bring you down.. If that’s how you feel, then that’s how you feel, better for the Cambodian woman that wouldn’t have to deal w you and your ways.. I think us Khmer women are beautiful and the ones I know age beautifully. I’m light skinned but I tan all the time to look more Khmer, I’m curvy and fit, take care of my body and mind well, and I’m very proud. And I am definitely not dying for a kon-kaut, a half white child.. The white men are struggling to mate with me lol. But ehh not my type. White men get wrinkly, sloppy, and develop boobs way too fast for my taste. Anywho, good luck on being 40, and finding everlasting love. And please, stick with someone your own age. You are a little to racist, narrow minded and crass for the younger generations.. Toodles! 🙂

      The man has 2 faces and lives a life full of contradiction. …. Not a very attractive side at all. Looks may mean something to others. But the way the author rights both articles lead to a few things that women in general even my sisters from the mother land will also deny. Love for one, contradiction, and man you seriously have girly pants on because in one article you love my sisters then on another you abuse verbally all the things my fellow young sisters, aunts, nieces have to look for when they are in my motherland. Women go through many troubles here, there, everywhere. But you do not have to degrade my kin with perverse nonsense. Life has more to give then to write rhetorical nonsense at the expense of those who have nothing to do with your personal troubles in life.

      To Curious,
      I didn’t miss anything. Just like you,I’m stating my opinion therefore it’s my opinion. I find no humor on picking on the innocent. Every women regardless of ethnic background does not need the last article to reflect on anyone. Obviously he’s forgotten what journalism is about. One thing I remember in school was a professor telling me to write things that matter most and are life changing. Never use it to hurt a group of people he’s either never met or actually known. I understand he wrote the article as a joke but dude really you have insulted not just Cambodians but also disgusted women in general for righting his article.

      I get his opinion, and don’t care for it because I know I am beautiful and smart and yes i am Asian (khmer,French,Chinese and vietnamese). Oh like wasting time on his blog…. And see all the Cambodians supporting each other.

    Hi, i suppose you dont know what is love, Khmer women have no choice to be what they are now because they know living in a poor country, what can they do or do they have any choice? It depend on what your are looking for? A fucking target only for sex, a women for companion, a women to bear you children with the unique Eurasian look? you choose them and not they choose you since you got the money power. But you have to see if you are really that handsome first before you can choose others. Generally Khmer women are very faithful because of their culture in a buddhism country. In fact they are very clever women who can learn things fast if you were to teach them. I love Cambodia and has been my second home. I visit this country every year more than 2 times per year to seek for the lost beauty in the aspect of photography. So you must be a frequent visitor to the country to understand this culture. Khmer women have very good features, nice eyes, nose, lips. They are just poor and cant afford to buy Oley oil or skin products, but they are living with pride everyday and working hard with their own hands and what’s wrong? they earn money in a hard way to massage you in the hotel for example and their monthly salary is only less than 70USD/month. They only have low grade of rice as their staple food, every mean only one dish is available but they have to work more than 12 hours. So we should respect them for their courage to survive.
    If you really treat them well with your heart, there are no reason they will leave you or with bad motives. Which women do not want good life and security? They have no choice. They also didnt force you to marry them.

    Dear writer about Cambodian woman
    I am so fed up with what you did write about bad activity of your Cambodian wife, remember that when you decided to marry her you should know the culture, and this country situation, We are
    Cambodian so we will would like to show you some about what many Cambodian woman where lived and born in this country, how many percentage are educated and and find work like you modern and civilized one, because we are the poor country of 28 year of war, but we are the richest country of everything, such culture, natural resource, mainly agricultural sector is our GDP, so the industrial of garment and textile is new for Cambodia,so we are lacked of Educated people to teach us, we are only 14 years in peace , when you talked about Iphone , you have to know the world is materialism so you are more educated then her so tell her about what she should buy and not, because most Cambodian not only your wife, but also other man the same they want to go and live in the USA, for what? we want to experience in your luxury country ,but most of Cambodian who are rich would not go there. about salary 2500$ per-month I think it is good to know in advanced because some of then can not make this money this things can tell you that most Cambodian woman after married everything depending on husband who earn for family, she is the bank account for everything such as all house work, keeping money for daily expense and the man has the duty to work and get money for family, what about your culture ? you make your money just for yourself or children not really give money to your wife. in here we do not have social security yet and so please do not blame Cambodian Woman or man or other nationality. Please do not look bad to the other people behavior, so in the society the thing you can do best is make your living without worry about money expense then you can buy what you wanted. I hope all people who did read mine please forgive me because i am the Cambodian tour guide sometime i know more than you know because they are my Cambodian people.All the best Andy

    You have a good point there,when you say you cant stay in cambodia nor you cant take her home for many reasons,i really enjoyed to read this.

    Well,since i am pree retired,i decided to quit everything i had in sweden,like i gave away my computer,my car,my house,everything i had and go for it 100 procent. Well i am still here it has been little bit over 3.5 years now,but without my pension money,i probably be in deep shit 🙂

    Anyway,i belive you are right in what you are saying,You forgot 1 moore risk by bringing a asean girl home to you country,this i have seen my self, and that is the main reason i do not want to bring my wife to my country,there is a risk that the girl will forget her past and forget her parents and relatives , this girl told her husband,there was no meaning to send money to her parents,because she had adjusted to our ways of living and started to think like us,thats thing,but the respect that is so high in these countries she totally lost,she wanted to have this money by her self so she could by things to her self.

    That is why i made the decision to stay down here,because then i know who is getting the money,the strange thing here ,my wife complains alot,when she dont get money as she hoped for,but i support not only father and mother to her,i also support her big sister and 2 younger sisters,i’m making this house bigger,so we can take in her mother and father,i make downpayment on our Mc , the third mc i have bought since i came here,my wife doesnt work,she should not complain how i splitting the money,because the family is number 1 for me,when i married my wife i also made a comittment to her father that i promised to take care of them and make sure that the family gets what they need,then if my wife complains and dont understand , well that is really her problem,i belive she thought she would get a rich life,well sort of but not what she expected,i belive she thought that she would get the money and then give money to her parents in a way that she probably thought was okey,but i belive she would take most of the money by her self if she ever got that chance,that is why i personally give her parents money monthly.

    White guys need to stop thinking of Cambodian/Asian women as pieces of ass and Asian women need to stop being such needy, clingy, “cute”, useless human beings. It’s annoying, it’s not cute, and there will always be a hotter Asian girl that’s got her appearance but also the rest of the package.

    I have never heard of this motodop term but whatever. My father was a teacher who fled the Khmer Rouge, he now works in management for a company he’s worked at for 30 years. I’m pretty sure that was the most biased statement I have ever heard in my life.

    I am in my younger twenties out of university with a career in business, and I make my own money. Enough said. But I still like when my boyfriend pays for dinner and buys me nice things, because every guy should.

    I could get any guy of any race (except Black because my parents would hang me)… but I find white guys more ambitious and attractive than most. My parents do not care who I date, as long as they are respectful, educated, and financially stable. Who doesn’t want that for their daughter, in ANY race? My sister dated a CA who was Chinese. I’m dating a white guy who works in a corporation as well. I’ve been with my boyfriend for four years, but we don’t talk about marriage or babies, because I hate that shit.

    I volunteered in a daycare once and quit within five hours. I’m not good with kids. Never been. When people bring their babies to work, I am forced to pretend that I think it’s “cute”. I don’t want kids. We are planning to get a cat when we move out together, because I also think that couples who get dogs eventually want babies. Puppies are like babies.

    Whenever we go out, people are fascinated by my stories and my parents’ stories, and I am known to most as a charming and pleasant individual. I actually do a lot of public/motivational speaking for my school, I don’t think this would work if I was an “embarrassment”.

    Now I do agree with the majority of the article because I do feel like Asian women put it on themselves, but there are a lot of us out there that aren’t such shameful, useless, baby-wanting, money-grabbers.

    My boyfriend thinks I’m a breath of fresh air because he’s dated a Chinese and Vietnamese before and says he thought all Asian girls were like that. He says they were very clingy, annoying, complained a lot, and loved kids. He thought it was interesting at first, but got sick of it pretty quickly. They never lasted more than a few months. Then he quickly upgraded.

      “I could get any guy of any race (except Black because my parents would hang me)… but I find white guys more ambitious and attractive than most.”

      Seriously though. How can you possibly try to take the moral high ground and pontificate on race or western men’s views on Cambodian women when you come from a family that is just as racist? Hating black people and believing they are inferior because of their race is not OK. It just isn’t. You don’t get to denounce racism and then roll like that. I get that you can’t control Mommy and Daddy or how they feel, but you don’t have to “respect” other people’s racism. Seriously. You can confront it and counter it instead of giving your consent.

      You might find white guys more attractive, that’s subjective, but the idea that they’re more ambitious is absurd. It’s an error in logic. White guys have more opportunities, therefore they appear to be more ambitious because a higher rate of opportunity means a higher rate of people taking advantage of them or attempting to and meeting with success. That’s all.

      If you had everybody from Cambodian peasants to high society WASPs calling you inferior your entire life because your skin had more pigment or your nose was flatter, and you really didn’t get much of a chance to succeed in life, well, then you might not be an ambitious GO GETTER like the white boys are either, because there’d be fucking nothing to GO and GET.

      You could not get any guy of any race. I’d turn you down because you sound boring and shallow (and probably racist like Moms and Pops.) I’m sure you’re hot. You know what that costs in Cambodia? $30. I guarantee there are girls hotter than you … And smarter than you, even if they’ll never get an education … selling themselves within blocks of where I write this. I don’t get into that and I don’t really condone it, but I just thought I’d give you a little reality check.

      I don’t see you all Asian have any compassion for anyone at all. You all Asians exploit people, humilliate people, inconvennienced people, abuse people at every opportunity. You all seems to hate everyone except yourself.

      The way you all have so little regard for for other human beings and your environment showed that you all are even willing to cause more ughliness to the environment just to get rich.

      Your parents don’t want you to marry Blacks because they most probably think you all Asians are better than Blacks even though in reality you all Asians are no better than Blacks, in mmost aspects. You all money obsessed Asians favour Whites because you all Asians are racists, extremely money-minded, and tend to exploit White generosity. At the end of they day, who you like and who you don’t like is a personal choice. Why can’t you all Cambodians gracefully accept your faults and accept that there are many people who don’t like you for various valid reasons?

      And you all Cambodians/Asians are so selfish and inconsiderate and it is not surprising that you tend to bore the whole world to death with your socalled success or your fleeing from Khmer Rouge story.

      I think things will never change in Cambodia or Asia. You all Asians will still continue to abuse anyone that don’t think like you or don’t benefit your Asian big ego. You all Asians also have this bad habit on looking down on poor Whites. Even if you are an ambitous Asian, I think you all Asians are just shallow, abusive, mean people who are best avoided. You all Asians are so nastily arrogant. You all Asians expect the Whites to like your nauseating attitude.

      You all Cambodians will have no chance to boast about anything, if one day the Whites decide enough is enough and stop coming to your hellhole that have nothing really pleasant to offer.

    @jimmyboy: Personally, I think if a guy wants a useless, submissive woman that will fulfill his every (degrading) sexual desire, then he’s a loser. Real men want a challenge. A woman can be the CEO of a company, but if she’s a real woman that knows how to please her man, she will be on her knees at the end of the day. Only dumb feminists think that women are equivalent. It’s human nature for the alpha-male to control.

    @godspeed: Agreed. I hate those white guys that think, “Omg, she’s Asian, she must be hot.” Um, probably only 25% of Asian women are actually naturally gorgeous. The rest have to layer makeup on, the rest have surgery done.

      Hello, It is true that I want to marry my Cambodian woman, but I am more than 50 years and my income is less than $2500/m. According to this note from US embassy. Can you give my a best solution to bring my fiancee to the USA !.There are any restiction like that in another counties ?.or only in Cambodia ?. Please read below article. And give me a solution.
      Thank you for your time.

      The U.S. Embassy would like to clarify the process U.S. citizens should follow when they intend to get married in Cambodia. You need to make an appointment for this service. To make an appointment, please click here.

      U.S. citizens should request marriage applications from the Legal and Consular Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MFA) of the Kingdom of Cambodia, located at 3 Samdech Hun Sen Street, Sangkat Tonle Basac, Khan Chamkamorn, Phnom Penh. The application form lists seven supporting documents that must be provided by foreigners and attached to the application. The application also says that foreigners must legalize five of these documents at their respective embassies.

      Of those documents required, consular officers at the U.S. Embassy can only legally certify copies of a U.S. citizen’s passport and notarize affidavits of single status; the current Cambodian sub-decree governing marriages also only requires certification of those two documents. None of the other documents required by the MFA can be certified by the U.S. Embassy. The MFA has assured the U.S. Embassy that marriage applications in which only the passport copies and affidavits of single status have been certified, in accordance with both U.S. and Cambodian law, will be accepted by them, despite any written notices or instructions that indicate otherwise.

      According to new marriage requirements issued on by the Government of Cambodia on March 7, 2011, male U.S. citizens wishing to marry Cambodian women must:

      •Be under 50 years of age, and
      •Have a monthly income of at least US $2,500
      The MFA also has requested that embassies attach a cover letter to those documents certified by embassies on behalf of their citizens. The U.S. Embassy will provide this cover letter when they certify the copies of U.S. passports and affidavits of single status for U.S. citizens. Please note that the U.S. Embassy also has blank affidavits of single status for the convenience of U.S. citizens seeking to get married in Cambodia. While it is not required that you use the affidavit of single status provided by the U.S. Embassy, using an affidavit from another source may cause difficulty with your application, since officials at the MFA may question the source and validity of affidavits that have a different appearance from those they usually see.

      Upon obtaining and certifying the necessary documents, U.S. citizens must fill out the application form, and submit it to the MFA. Although the MFA may begin charging a fee later, currently, there are no fees charged by anyone at the MFA for this process – the application is free. The MFA reviews and gives advice on the application and accompanying documentations of the foreign applicant, and if all documents are in order, the application is forwarded to the MOI.

      My question is

      1) Why this new rule of marriage?. Why any Cambodian women can do the prostitution, if she want to be, and she cannot marry a men that she want ( if over 50 year or income less then $2500/m )
      2)Do you think Cambodian women are the best in this planet !. Compare to thai or Vietnam or Chinese women! Your education, you standard of life ?
      3) do yu not think that this rules of marriage destroy your country ?

        Ho ! I understand that you like to do a prostitution instead to marry a poor man or old man !.

        I am not a US graduate and University educated, but If I have a choice I want to marry the old or poor man instead of sell my sex.

        If I am an animal, I want to be a wolf, but not the Buffalo.

        You are so happy in the US, and you ignore that hundred of Cambodian women can not marry because of a stupid rules of Marriage.

This is what I have to say, only losers, only a dadesperate woman would marry you.

    The comments from the white/western/westernized Cambodian women are hilarious.

    Snarling,fangs dripping and waiting to pounce on anything they perceive as anti-feminist or woman.

    The original article was tongue in cheek everyone.

    I love Asian women. There are plenty of great ones out there-including Cambodia.

    hi guys, ive just returned from phmom penh where i met a lovely girl in a bar, she’s not a hostess she actually works behind the bar (not gonna say which one) we spent some quality time together and since being home she has called me every day also emailed text and facebooked each other.
    am i just a fool for thinking that this girl really likes me (i’m 12 years older) does she just see me as a westerner who could be her personal atm?
    should i go back and see her (only this time i’d have to travel alone)?

  94. Post American Reply

    grunty- who cares? you think a younger western woman isnt going to see you as an ATM? they’ve shown studies that men who claim to earn 100k a year or more get 2-3X the number of responses on internet dating sites, tell a western woman you have a high paying job, like stock analist, and they will see you as being much more attractive (moving from a typical 5 to a 8-9 on a scale of 10)It’s just going to be something you (not she) will have to worry about, my advice… jump in with both feet and if you find out you’ve been taken be happy about all the fun you had and dont hold a grudge.

    I think that your loved with cambodian girl was fake and you were aware but you still had continued. This was your mistake please do not blame to cambodian girl. You should admire them that they can do everything for their family and for themselves. I can tell you as I am women, there is no women in this world want to live with the men that they do not love but they forced themselves because of other reasons behind. Sometimes, true love can happen if both parties can tolerate to each others.

    People can not have everything so they have to compliment to each others.

    I agree with you that some cambodian girl is looking for western men to get marry but have you ever seen that girl in good family marry to western man? For me it is rare and have you ever seen that educated cambodian girl marry to western men? not so much as far as I know.

    Most of cambodian girl who work at night and bar or western restaurant marry to western man.

    So please readjust your opinion for cambodian girl. Do not thereotype,

      whooh i wasn’t stereotyping, this was my first trip to cambodia and i met the usual bar hostesses but this girl seemed different, i was just asking for an opinion from those that know more about this world than i do.
      i must say that i found all the cambodian girls wonderful, happy happy people.
      i’m not looking to get married, bloody hell i’ve only spent a day with her!!!

    • Huevos Amok Reply

      “… have you ever seen that girl in good family marry to western man?”

      Yes, I’m aware of several instances, personally. I know Cambodian women who have married western men who are from a “good” (read: rich) family background and are educated.

      It is rarer for a Cambodian woman to do that if they come from a “good” (RICH) family and they are educated because … Why would they if they had their own money? Unless they really loved the western guy but how many opportunities do (RICH) Cambodian women get to socialize with western men whom they’d find suitably respectable etcetera? Very few.

      This illustrates one of the biggest problems I have with Cambodia; you’re all calling Gavin a racist because of what he’s saying, but at the same time you’re CLASSIST – you have a prejudice against poor people and believe that they deserve their fate, that they are lesser people. Bullshit. Your birth was an accident. You didn’t earn it. Show some respect for those with harder lives.

      And Cambodia is one of the MOST racist countries I’ve ever been to. Period. You hate black people. I mean HATE them. I have little 7 year old students of mine saying things like “I love my mom … but she is tooooooo black,” or “I hate Barak Obama because he is sooooo dark.” Those are exact quotes from little children, and I won’t even get into the messed up shit I hear the adults say, it isn’t anymore intelligent than what a 7 year old would say anyways.

      Basically, in America, everybody would just call you Chinese and wouldn’t give a shit where you’re from, they’d just apply all the Asian stereotypes to you and then ignore you. You’re not white. You don’t have white privilege. You might think you’re better than Africans, but you aren’t according to white people. Not in reality and not by the racist standards you uphold by obsessing on skin color.

      ignorant and dumb is a little harsh, naive is probably more to the point. in fact i am well edducated having gone to one of the best unis’ in the uk, and work for one of the largest companys here in the uk.
      my visit to cambodia was my first time and i was amazed at how many beautiful women there are, and also how happy the kmher people seem as a whole.
      the article at the head of this page was written tongue in cheek if you cant see that then you’re stupid. also all the racist comments are pathetic, i’m a westerner but not white, i’m brown and therefor have a better appreciation of all races.
      the girl i mention earlier is a lovely person, she calls every day and we chat for ages, however i’m not stupid enough to jump on the next flight back and marry her, just got divorced after 20yrs. but perhaps i’ll go back i a few months and spoil her for a couple of weeks. maybe that makes me a saddo or stupid, say what you like, i’m noy trying to buy the person or use her for sex, just spend time with a beautiful young lady.

      Mr Vee, It is true you are dumb because you cannot say any thing more than DUMP.

      Mr Grunty, we are a human, when we are in love we lose some reflexion, and some bad people try to cheat to you.

      Pay attention about your money. I have a Master degree from university of Paris, and work for AVIVA france, in Paris as an Engineer, but I was cheated by a girl in Phnom Penh.

      I buy a lot of land for her family and hope she can use this land for make a money and take care her family. That was my idea, but when she got a Land, she and her family fabricated a wrong paperwork (ownership) and sell the Land, then asked more and more money, when I refused to give more money, she brook a contact with me.

      In cambodia, they can fabricate the tons of wrong paperwork to cheat you. I try to get back my land but, now a case is pending on the court. Do that you want to do, but my case is a good experience for all of oversea poeple go to cambodia.

    Some woman wants a man who have financial stability. If you have the money you normally gets the lady. In building a relationship we all wants to trust but beware it is also everyone’s game. Some will use you, some wants to be use (refer song “sweet dreams” by Annie Lennox). I don’t think you are a saddo or stupid, nor you are in-love at this time. It takes time for a man to fall in-love, but you are definitely physically attractive to this young lady and wanting to build a relationship. I don’t see anything wrong with that. If she is what your heart desire and if she makes you happy that’s all it matters. The openions of others doesn’t really matter since you already made up your mind to go back to see her again, hopefully this time you will get to know her more/better. There’s a lot more to discover besides a woman’s outside beauty. Seems your intensions are good but if marraige is not in your agenda at this time don’t give her high hopes. She might expecting you to do more, like marrying her. Good luck!

That is the Bigger Loser calling others losers, I mean who is the bigger douche, a douche even though you had access to all the western advantages of technological advances and education, or the “uneducated native” who so often can cheat the moronic westerner with the education.

      One of the reasons that she marry me is that I have a very, very big dick. She says that all her friends with khmer boyfriend/husband don’t get the satisfaction they need in bed, because all khmer men have small dicks.

      Also, I’m handsom, young and rich (khmer standard rich), good with children and a very kind person, and god in bed, do she need anything more?

She have a lot of experience !. Why she say that to you. I am not proud to say that. I am 75 years old, I never hear this from standard Cambodian women.

        Does she say when you get old or your dick needs a viagra, she will say ” Stupid dog, put you head inside, if you dick is not works !!.).

    Only desperate losers marry women from the Philippines ? Maybe the reason western men go to marry women from Cambodia and the Philppines is because they’re so much better than Western woman. i’m only in the mid thirties and definitely not a desperate loser, but guess what I’m not interested in american woman. They have no culture, a lot of them lazy and overweight constantly moralizing, constantly judging everything. A lot of them dress like shit. Most have lost their femininity completely. It’s extremely hard to find a normal woman in america and the west nowadays. Time to wake up and realize that american culture is a disgrace on humanity. The rest of the world knows this, only dickheads like you still think you’re the greatest civilization on earth. But anyway, please stay out of Cambodia, I really hate to see people like you there.

  106. Chris Reply

    Gavinmac before you think of marrying anyone or even getting a pet cat or goldfish I seriously think you have bigger personal challenges prejudices and misperceptions to deal with.

    I married a Cambodian village lady that is significantly younger than myself 10 years ago. She never completed her level 12 but is the most honest, hard working and genuine person I ever met. All the practical challenges lik family links, my work situation, other peoples prejudices (but not the nonsence on gen pool depletion, and other “excuses”) we have had to deal with and we have dealt with ……

    Its been a change of livestyle and outlook and probably the best decision I ever made.

    Apart from the fact I am happier and healthier, I also have a much healthier and less judgemental or “I am a foreigner that knows all the answers” outlook on life.

    I have lived and worked through Asia, Africa and the balkans for many years. Cambodian women, especially rural women are almost unique and exceptional …… history tells us that Cambodian rural women were the wives of choice for vising traders and rice merchants for many reasons ……. and not without good reason.

    If you stooped looking at your self and your own perceptions … and stop worring about other people and their prejudices the benefits would be obious, and the challengews find solutions …. I speak from happy experience.

    My british husband behaved badly after he got himself an extremely haughty cambodian girlfriend.

They don’t care for us foreigners who have to suffer all alone in their asiatic country.

      WLIL are you judging all Cambodians on a small group or possibly one woman ……. did you ever spend time in the rural provinces where the majority live ??

      And do foreigners “care” for Asians that suffer alone in our countries …..I think not, in many cases the Asian visitors suffer prejudice, impediments, obstruction and criticism … sometimes even bigotry. In my native NZ which prides itself on multiculturalism and an open society the catch cry for jobs and social acceptance is we want want New Zealanders ….. even my own dear sister, a very charitable woman normally told my Cambodian wife in a 2 week visit she needed to be more NZ.

      You go to a country, the onus is on you to adapt to their circumstances and norms to a reasonable amount, not to complain because they do not make a special case for you.

      WLIL is sad news about your husband …. but I suspect the faullt at least is with the husband (even if in no way contributed to by yourself). hardly seems fair to blame a whole culture because of the infidelities of a husband .. husbands and wives are unfaithful the world over. As my wife has said to so many of her friends, if I don’t take care of my husband, and you don’t take care of your husbands, there is always another woman who will. Ditto with men .. don’t take care of your wife, there is always someone else willing to do so !!

I think she is disgusting and I hope she just goes the ‘eff away very soon. At least my brother should get a flat for himself and his waif instead of inflicting her on us… The main reason i’m so pissed off, upset and heartbroken, is i have a very serious illness and i had to cancel two life-changing ops because she is here and now i have to cancel them again because she bloody staying longer, My mother and father have put my brothers desire to have a girlfriend who can’t talk back to him and is completely dependant on him over my health, how lovely.

      Another thing, I want to mention, when you help people that is helpless you bring good feeling to yourself as a great accomplishment. This bring forth what you call good deed or good karma. When you think only for yourself call it selfishness, you are not really doing anything good to deserve good karma but bringing forth to yourself bad karma. (What you reap is what you sow) Please be kind to one another and stop judging one who is not as lucky as you. Ask yourself this, would you like it if that person you put down was you, the helpless one who just came from another country, would you like it if someone thought of you so down and low?
      Help them because ask your dad and mom how did they get to America? the answer is the same way as that girl or that family or that boy got here, not knowing anything, dumn, stupid and helpless. Please look at the mirror before you talk about others… I am willing to bet that you are Cambodian also immigrate from Cambodia during hard times.. maybe not you because you might be born here but your parents surely escape the Khmer Rouge to get here.

    My opinion,
    When your time of falling in love will comes call it “soulmate” “meant to be,” the status that she hold to you will be of no importance that is if you follow your heart, not what other people dictate on who you should be with. Love is strange and comes when we least expected.
    Right now, you are deciding who you possibly would not want to get married to just like you are deciding what degree you should get from what college. But Love cannot be decided, it just comes and the feeling will overtake your judgement and all of a sudden you are on cloud 9 doing flips and feeling so happy. You can control part of your life but you cannot control destiny. Living in America, we are made to believe that we have control of our destiny, of our life and who we select as our long term partner. Then when we think she is the right one, we get divorce. So truly, as a matter of speaking, when we force ourselves to think that marrying such and such is awful and marrying such and such is right. The pressure builds up on you and all you are doing is impairing your judgment on what destiny really have for you.
    Do not place judgement on who you will meet for your heart happiness comes from a special place where true happiness will come forth when unexpected. At that precise moment of no expectation that you have found the one for you, you have no thoughts of contemplating about where, when and how you should find the perfect girl for you.
    Don’t be God and trying to control your destiny. You will only end up in misery. Let it flow like water, or be the wind.
    A lot of times, it is your bad Karma from your past life that seek justice and revenge in your present life(what you reap is what you sow)and you must endure the pain before you see your soulmate. That is the reason why you must do good so that you can collect good merit to stabilize your bad karma so that you can meet a favorable suitable partner that you can be happy with through out your life. If you choose not to believe me, you will see that the partner that you choose, after a year or two, disputes, fight, and things will fall apart will happen to the point where divorce is a must. So please don’t judge Cambodian women abroad or anyone for that matter of speaking. Karma and Destiny and who you are as a good person doing good deed or doing good karma will dictate your happiness either in this life or your next life.

When you think only for yourself call it selfishness, you are not really doing anything good to deserve good karma but bringing forth to yourself bad karma. (What you reap is what you sow) Please be kind to one another and stop judging one who is not as lucky as you. Ask yourself this, would you like it if that person you put down was you, the helpless one who just came from another country, would you like it if someone thought of you so down and low?
    Help them because ask your dad and mom how did they get to America? the answer is the same way as that girl or that family or that boy got here, not knowing anything, dumn, stupid and helpless. Please look at the mirror before you talk about others… I am willing to bet that you are Cambodian also immigrate from Cambodia during hard times.. maybe not you because you might be born here but your parents surely escape the Khmer Rouge to get here. If we the Khmer people don’t support our own skin, our own kind, to help the one who is in need of our help to be strong, smart, educated than what kind of Khmer people are we?

    Karma (What you reap is what you sow) to sum it up is the feeling of pain that you receive either by emotional verbal abuse given from the giver or the physical abuse that hurt your flesh in turn will give you a painful feeling by the giver. Once you are hurt than the giver receives his or her fare share of pain (bad karma) through either this life time or the next life time when he or she is born again. Unless the giver and the receiver understand karma and finds a way in his or her heart to forgive each other, only then will the karma be lifted. If not, the karma will seek its revenge. and we will meet again in the next life time.
    So before you go about and give to the receiver a feeling, ask yourself this question: if someone was going to do

    Dear Sir,
    I have lived and worked in 10 different developing countries over a 40 year period. I came to Cambodia in 1996 and married a Chinese/Khmer lady with two children in 2000. Our daughter is now 21 and a stunner. There are fantastic ladies available here and some do come from the bars. However I would never want to take my wife to live in the USA as America considers itself to be the center of the Universe!

    If it wasn’t for the war that torn our country apart, our Khmer women wouldn’t even look at westerners. All they want is money for their family and a better life. The US dollar/currency is the only thing they look forward too, not living a life with an American with a bland culture/history. Go down south to Tijuana, maybe you’ll find your perfect match flaunting her goodies at those rundown bars. Loser.

    I’m not trying to be a jerk or anything but many of the issues you pointed out sounds like mostly your own problems and have nothing to do the woman you want to marry..

    honestly, you should also ask yourself if you lay all the fact about yourself(including anti-social prick, you have no friends/family around…), would she even want to marry you.. that’s a completely different story..

    I would say if you’re an average person and you’re in love with someone that also loves you enough to be willing to marry you, ethnic backgrounds, family backgrounds or where she comes from definitely doesnt qualified to be even an excuse not to marry here.. just saying

    the only thing you probably kinda remotely got right is the fact that if they want to marry you at all, that’s definitely because the green card, you fool!

    You are old man, you want to marry to a beautiful young lady, so you have to be rich that is fair for both of us, so do not afraid of young lady take your money.

    This is extremely offensive and I did not see the humor in this at all. It wasn’t even slightly humorous… What’s so good about getting laughs at someone else’s expense? I wish that I never stumbled across your article but since I have I would like to give you a piece of my mind. Not only was your article inaccurate it was hurtful and racist towards Cambodian woman and Cambodian culture. My mother was a poor country girl from Cambodia and upon coming here to America in order to escape from the war and hardships her family had to endure. She learned English without the help of her parents and graduated valedictorian thus landing her a full paid scholarship to a very prominent law school. She’s very intelligent and very successful. Not to mention, she’s done this all herself. She’s a loving mother who put her all into raising her children that she didn’t initially want to have. She’s kind and strong. The biggest role model in my life. She went from being poor to being an independent successful woman who does not need the help of my multiracial dad that her family disowned her for falling in love with. She stays solely for the reason of love if that last line didn’t hit you hard enough. Why am I telling you this? Well obviously to say all these hurtful and rude things about Cambodian women is basically spitting on my mother’s efforts to become the wonderful person she is today. Just saying– the more you know.

    I have married a Cambodian wife and all I can say is, it takes a lot of effort to go through the paperwork, her mental stability of being in an foreign country, sometimes even thinking if suiciding,been rebellious, always asking for money when her parents called either dad ran away with another woman or her family are sick or her siblings need money for feed and studies. The wedding is surely a conned because it will rack you up to $40,000 USD without return. The family will promise you there is money back but they will take it and deny the money is not earn even there is a record. So to guys out there, all the beat and make your choice right. There are many fishes out there.

      Yes, but I think the good kind of satire is supposed to be intelligent. And satire is entirely capable of being in poor taste and not funny. This piece just basically relied on stereotyping Asian women in developing countries as vapid gold-diggers, which is oh-so-original.

      It makes fun of Asian cultures for prizing family over all else as if white culture was superior for I dunno, not doing the same? It’s also hard to find a point funny when they are scientifically baseless (uneducated does not mean dumb, and intelligence is not entirely hereditary, nor does intelligence alone mean you get anywhere in life).

      Basically, satire is cool, but it seems that the people agreeing wholeheatredly with this post don’t really seem to realize it’s satire either.

    Nonsense. First there is NO stigma to marrying an Asian woman ikon fact American men are staring to find out how horrid western feminazis are. Asian women are polite, pretty and ladylike. They do not have foul mouths and do not use gutter language, They are feminine. See Fred Reed on all the great reasons Asian women make the best wives.
    Asian woman age as well as western women or better.
    As far where to live, what does it matter> The US sucks anymore. Cambodia is a great place and with the internet there are hundreds of job opportunities.
    If she marries you she loves you, don’t be so arrogant to think you are such a great catch that women will marry you for status or money. No status or money is worth getting married to an arrogant prick for.

    My Cambodian wife and I have been happily married for 5 years and I can honestly say we’re loving our relationship. I’ve never been happier. She’s happy, I’m happy, what’s the problem? She’s 20 years my junior and frankly, I don’t give a crap about what other people say. Neither does she, in fact we get a kick out of all the jealous looks we get from cranky American men and their hideous, overweight, bitchy wives. We see the looks you give us in the supermarket- all the guys wish they had a wife as lovely as mine, and all the wives seethe with anger and naked jealousy. 🙂 lol

    Embarrassed? Not hardly. I’ve been far more embarrassed by the American women I’ve dated than anything my wife has ever done. If your ego is that fragile, you probably shouldn’t leave your parent’s basement. 🙂

    And the whole thing about Cambodian women aging gracefully is nonsense. Most, if not all 50-year old Cambodian women look fantastic- WAY WAY WAAAAAY better than *any* 50-year old Caucasian woman.

      If you’re in Cambodia short time, everything looks wonderful. You’ve to spend at least a year in Cambodia until you can understand their souls.

      Then you’ll understand very clearly that all they want is only money. There’s no friendship, no help in Cambodia, there’s only money. Especially if you are foreigner, you as a human have zero value here. Only your money have value.

      I’m from Europe and I’ve never seen such love for money before. It’s deeply disgusting. In Cambodia they compare someone who’s able to cheat/steal as smart, someone who works and is being cheated then as not smart. They still speak about money, but never speak about work.

        It is indeed very risky to venture there alone and it can be really traumatic if one is unprepared to see so many ugliness and inhumanity in one place.

        Perhaps, most people will want to stop exploring their meaningless, filthy dark world that tend to be so inhumane, irrationally greedy and exploitive.

      He’d be thinking of people 20 meters around his home who will always hear when she yawn, and up to 40 meters around when she sneezes. Maybe she’ll also need to play songs with her phone every place she moves.

Don’t even suggest to an old person to date a much younger person. Please it is very disgusting. In the Cambodian culture, a person’s life is only divided into 3 major stages. That is it. Young-Middle-Old. When you are young, they expect you to study. When you are done with your studying, they expect you to apply yourself in the world and make a family. When you are old, they expect you to resign yourself to the temple life. At 40, this old fart is still lustful for young girls. Oh my freaking god. But again, scientists say that in general Africans are more sexually active than the whites and the whites are more sexually active than the Asians. No wonder, old white farts do not see anything wrong with dating young girls one or two generations their junior. Oh my god!

      Vda, I am surprised that you seem to advocate for an old white fart to meet a 20ish Cambodian female. Don’t you find that disgusting? I think it is a new phenomenon that Cambodian females are marrying or dating old white farts. Even for nearly a hundred years, the colonial French were not able to mate with Cambodian females because the societal stigma was so great on the Cambodian females who decided to go with a white male. The general belief was that only bitches, hookers, drug-infested females, easy, promiscuous females went with white males. In the States, interracial White-Cambodian marriages are of a much high caliber. Usually college graduates.

      What this old fart does not know is that there are countless marriages that between males from the USA with the Cambodian females in Cambodia. When the females are in the USA, they can help their hubbies readily. They can work at a sweatshop, an Asian fast food restaurant, a donut store, a water store, an electronic assembly factory, etc. While an old white fart only sees a Cambodian female getting bored and socially awkward, little does he realize that Cambodian females also have needs to better themselves as human beings. So watch out for a white old fart with a superior complex.

    If you have very strong feelings after reading Gavinmac’s reasons for not choosing to marry a Cambodian girl, you’all need to chill and let him be. I have never once thought that the contributors in this forum age older than 30’s. I am actually wrong in that retrospect. Gavinmac is a geezer whose time is running out. In America he is already considered a homosexual. What he has to say for himself is limited to only his own little world. Why would a 40+ years old guy be chasing after a 20 something girl anyway? The generational gap is too great. It is like a parent living with a child. In Cambodian culture, the age differential is allowed only up to 17 years apart. After that, the older person is considered of a parental status already. Even at 40+ years old, Gavinmac has no clues of what a relationship really is at all. In America, he is a typical loser when it comes to any relationships. Gavinmac is probably a white guy whom white women never gave him a day under the sun. In dirt poor Cambodia, all of a sudden he thinks he is a hunk with all the financial resources to offer to female teenagers. Oh my god. I am only in my mid 20’s and dating, and it is no wonder the views across this discussion board are so outdated sometimes. They are a bunch of old farts. White women are abandoning their socially inept counterparts and are into interracial dating already. White males are definitely left behind in this regard for sure.

    smith i live in Australia,and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she [email protected]}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website {[email protected]},i f you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to “bringing your ex back. So thanks to Dr Stone for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.([email protected]}, Thanks…

Actually, you have almost nothing to offer any woman, Cambodian or otherwise except I suppose some material stuff. You attitude is pitiful. You definitely should do women everywhere a favor and stay single. Growing old in a great relationship with Internet porn is for you.

    looking to bring my 24 old Cambodian girlfriend to Sydney Australia to see if she likes the lifestyle, truly loves me and can get on well enough with my family. Does any one have any advice on what type of visa she wil need. How long can she stay for & what would be my requirements. She is georgeous to me, a fun spirited soul who made me laugh, made me want to be affectionate with her, gererous to her & worry about her. I cried at the airport when I had to come home and I have never done that with previous girlfriends andthere have been many. She is super keen to come, I am super keen to get her here. I am financially well off and can afford her to live with me forever without her ever having to work. I am 46 old fit and healthy and apparantly appear young for my age, she is 24 and has lived an incredibly tough life so far but it seems to have strengthened her resolve rather than diminished or tarnished her outlook. I truly think love her. We have discussed children and she says she is happy to forego having them as I am not keen to become a dad in my late 40’s. My question is, do you think it can work and what is the best way for me to get her here for a trial live together relationship ? Thanks in advance for leaving some worthy comments.

    Oh my goodness. Gavinmac you are the most fucking disrespectful and racist asshole I have ever come across over the internet. What gives you the right of mind to talk trash about and downgrade Cambodians, especially the females? You’re a perfect example of why society these days is deteriorating, because the lack of humanity you display through something that shouldn’t be opinionated at such a derogatory level is overwhelming. Sure, people are allowed to have opinions and a right of speech but your values and morals are seriously messed up if you think it is appropriate to judge and stereotype an ethnic culture in the ways you’ve displayed. You don’t even deserve the thought of having a wife, someone as mentally fucked up as you, let alone a Cambodian one who you talk so depreciatingly about. From observation you’re an American citizen, so why not marry someone in your own country who’s got regular access to ‘Oils of Olay’ and won’t become ‘wrinkled’ at said age? Millions of girls all over the US and yet you decide to choose and bag out ones from a different country? I genuinely fear for the woman who may unfortunately become your wife one day and bear the child of 50% Gavmac. You question if she will be able to truly love you but you don’t even deserve to be loved. In fact, you deserve to live a lonely life, racist bastard.

      I have a question for you. Do you want to live with gypsies? Do you want to have them as neighbors? I really wonder if you do. In my country, when gypsies come to live here or there, people want to escape. First they have anger, then hate and then they are indeed escaping if they can and can’t get rid them off. And I’ve learnt from news and reports it is not my country only, indeed. It is over Europe: eg. when gypsies come to the classroom, parents take their children out to other school.

      So, are these people (who are not able to live with gypsies) mentally fucked racist bastards, fucking disrespectful racist assholes, with their moral values seriously messed up?

      Hey, come to live to Cambodia and you will learn soon, that Cambodia is a land of gypsies. This is simply observation, comparison, experience.

      Gavinmac doesn’t play or pretend whatever. He reports, he shares his observations. He’s self-critical, sincere (and wit). You pretend some pseudo humanity only. You sentenced yourself to be superior to Gavinmac. You can judge, he can not (in fact, he doesn’t judge). Where your experience comes from?

    Cambodia is really no better than other Asian countries, where one have to pay so much just to live and travel in extreme discomfort and insecurity. A land where they looked down on you and make life inconvenient and uncomfortable for you, if you are travelling on a small budget. A land that is full of pretentiousness, backwardness and ugliness. A land where money reign supreme. A land that will grab every dollar you have and let you starve. A land where greed and callous behaviour is the norm. A land where you give them new,clean, crisp US dollar and they return you with extremely filthy looking riel. A land of fake friendliness. A land of arrogance. A land of hardship even if one is going there for a visit. A land where one can’t say what one really think, in case they get offended. A land where filth reigh supreme. A land of harsh people and harsh landscape. A land where one is expected to tolerate their asian culture, no matter how annoying or how unfair or how horrible it is. No thank you.

    The fact is Asians, such as Cambodians are so petty and so easily offended by any disagreeable opinions.
    That is why most Asians are still so backward.
    Most Asians are unable to accept any criticisms, even if it is true and based on reality.
    Asians tend to become much more backward, much more intolerant and much more brutal whenever asians have the upper hand.
    The fact is Asian countries, such as Cambodia are full of ugliness and filth, and one should be allowed to say so without fear, if one think so.

    the writer of this article is an unlucky man with a negative thought.I agree some part you say that Cambodian woman marry foreigner for money, but not all of are like that. And not just Cambodia i think even your own country i believe there are those kind of woman who chase after man for money too. I heard on news that an 18 girl married an old man too. How about that?????? You cant just judge to all people just because one person you met. In fact Cambodian people are so friendly and very accommodate their visitors and sever her husband nicely and respectful.
    I myself will also marry to Western man and he is not rich and im not with him coz of money. We both sharing what we have and i love him as he is. My family was fear that i will become poor and live in difficulty if i marry him, but i told them he is not rich, but i love the way he love and care and treat me. that is enough to live together. Money could make later. I truly love and care for him.

    To the picture that you she is just 43 become that old. for me i have never seen one yet. If she is 43 and that old that would be a world record. you are just sooooooo…. . be careful with what speak out. If you cant think of a good word to say to people, keep yourself silent. Your words can make more friend and enemy

    I think you are over thinking to your wife. If you always doubt on her, you will never find happiness even you marry to your own people. No one is perfect!!

        Sure, not all Cambodian girls are Vampires but some of them you have to be very careful of. I always thought as myself as a good judge of character but my ex Cambodian wife was better. I must have had sucker written over my forehead. She was beautiful and charming and we got on like a house on fire, the only negative was that she was a typical Asian girl, shallow, selfish and vane, but I thought, I’m not perfect either and besides she was a lot of fun to be with. Her parents treated me like I was their son, for the first time in my life I had a family to love and they loved me.
        But like the saying goes if it is too good to be true, then it probably is. We got married then after three months I head back home to work so I could save the money to buy the house she and her family wanted. before I left I did the most dumbest thing a man could do I opened an account in her name , (they wouldn’t allow me to put my name on the account because I had not lived there long enough). In it I left 9000 USD, we were supposed to start a business when I returned to Cambodia. Within the first month of me gone she heads straight to the bars and fucks everything that had a cock. I was devastated to say the lest, she seen me coming and she bled me dry. She offered no explanation, no reason, no apology. she discarded me like a dirty toe rag. I have been trying to find someone who has had experience with Cambodian law and Government in the hope that I could retrieve the the 9000 dollars, Iv been told by many that I haven’t a hope in hell. It’s bad enough that she’s already ripped my heart out and stomped on it, that is something I will have to learn to live with, but stealing 9000 dollars is theft and fraud pure and simple. If anyone reading this has any information that could help me out with this problem , then I would be very much grateful. My Email address is : [email protected] Is there a web site that one could post a picture and name of these girls so as to warn others before they go to these country’s and make the same mistake?

    Alright. So I’m gonna post a reply to this, even though I came across this post about a year ago. I’m a seventeen year old Cambodian girl. Oh, surprised I can’t speak proper English and don’t have extensive amounts of grammatical errors? Both my parents are Cambodian. My mom originally from Phnom Penh, my father was born there, but was adopted by a white British family, and was raised in Canada. When my mom met my father, she moved to Canada. I was born in Cambodia, but came to Canada when I was six months old… so I was practically born here just as well as I am raised. I just wanna say… a lot of these “reasons” must be from your own experience and I sincerely hope that you do not speak for all Cambodian women in this post/article whatever you want to call it. Even though this was meant to be about women FROM Cambodia, I still take offence because hey, I’m a woman, and Cambodian. My mother is… nothing like this. This whole idea that you have regarding how once “Cambodian women” become middle-aged, they turn old and hag-ey… isn’t that something that happens to ALL women once they reach that age? Just sayin’. The whole thing with people seeing you with her and thinking you’re married to your Mexican maid or a Filipino? Dear god. Do you know how many Asian girls, including myself, try to bleach their skin with toxic chemicals for that exact reason? I could go on forever, but no one would read this if it was that long.

    I am 29 years old, white Northern European man.
    All my knowledge about Cambodia was several Cambodian postage stamps from my collection (with nice Apsara dancers etc.), some historical knowledge about Khmer Rouge…that really was all.
    Till about a year ago, when I was on visiting my friends, and there I had a chance to watch dvds of two Cambodian director Rithy Panh movies – “Neak sre” (1994) and “Un soir apres la guerre” (1998).
    Already during watching “Neak sre”, I fell in love with Cambodia and its people. My life understanding has changed. About the middle of this year I will travel to Cambodia, first in my life.
    And their music, dances – I adore it…I mean, ethnographical, such as Apsara, Ramayana music, shadow theatre music, lute chapey etc.
    For me, Cambodian girls are the most beautiful among all women of the world. I’ve heard only positive reviews about them (and of all Cambodian people). My wife and mother of our children will be Cambodian, and only Cambodian. If she will want, she will move with me to Europe – if she will like the breezy and wet climate of my country, – if not, I will stay in Cambodia. Or anyplace.

    Some people do not like humor that makes them squirm a bit. Yes, it is insensitive, rude, and even racist and sexist. But I believe it was written in jest, and that the writer is none of those things. possible? Yes, as odd as that may sound to some.

    Some misinterpret the words due to the language difference. Some hate this type of humor in the face of the truly terrible conditions in poor countries. Few could write this humor.

    If this were a serious article, I would hate it too.

    Here is a test. Substitute “Iowa farm girl” as the subject. Still funny? I think so, maybe more, maybe less. Imagine the piece written the other way around in the voice of a Cambodian girl about a barang. Hilarious also, and with fewer protests.

    It is an amazing piece that still gets comments years after it was created.

    So I accidentally ran across this website. I am not sure why I read it but I did. Anyway, I wanted to say that my father was half Cambodian and half Vietnamese. He was the only one in the whole extended family (especially Vietnamese’s side) who made it as an officer (U.S. Navy) serving in the Vietnam War. That would make me 1/4 Cambodian. I am well over the age of 30 and even other Asians are shocked at how young and pretty I look. Oh! But don’t mind me, someone like me would embarrass a mouthy whiny “American” boy like you to death because of my upbringing and the way that I look!!! After reading your BS, it seems that you are on the slim pickin’ side, I’d suggest that you should stick with the Nigerians and Kenyans on the National Geographic magazines. Maybe call Obama up to hook you up? Maybe that will shut your mouth up for a while?!?

    I am an American woman who lived in Cambodia for 4 years with a Cambodian family and married their only son. We now live in America and I am so proud to be married to him and a part of their family! There is beauty in every type of people and culture. If you are looking for flaws then even the most beautiful sunset isn’t good enough. There are things that we might prefer more in our in our own cultures, or are more used to, but we should never devalue the nationality, ethnicity or culture of others. Each is unique and has something special to bring to the world.

    I married a Cambodian lady in 2011, in a 2-day ceremony to which everyone in the village was invited. After the necessary paperwork we moved to Australia and have lived happily here ever since. In June this year we celebrate our third wedding anniversary.
    We remarried within 10 days of our arrival here as Australian rules do not accept Cambodian weddings for legal purposes.
    Though there is an age difference I have never been happier. My wife has a job here and sends some money home to her family each month, I have no objection to that as we can still live fairly comfortably on my income. We both help to support a Cambodian community , including my in-laws in Cambodia. But their lives have been improved by commonsense use of the things we have been able to provide. eg, waterpump, motorbikes and chainsaw are shared commodities. We travel back and forth and bring clothing for adults and children.
    When we arrive there each time we are able to buy books for the local school as well as stationery and pencils . Just things that make life a little easier for our extended family.
    We have been able to help neices, etc.while learning English at night-school and to get jobs in Siem Reap.
    Through a programme called “Local-Phone” my wife is able to keep in almost daily contact with her family. When I suggested that we go back to Cambodia to live, my wife said “NO!”. In Cambodia she worked for 12 hours a day for $20 a month; here her first fortnight’s wage was $860. I know she is happy here and I have had no regrets at all.

      Marrying an Asian woman who is just after a better wage in Western country is just so meaningless.
      It sounds like you married another materialistic Asian Cambodian woman that is only obsessed with earning more money in the West.
      I think preventing the ugly Asianization of Australia is more important than boasting about marrying a money obsessed Asian Cambodian.

    My wife is Cambodian.We have been together almost 20 years and have never spoken a bad word to each other and have a very good marriage.My wife is 42 and is still very atractive.I think that as long as people are happy they age slowly.We live in America in a quiet rural area and spend a lot of time fishing and enjoying life.I think that if a western man marries a girl from a bar in any country he will have problems with her.If he marries a good girl from a good family that really loves him and enjoys his company he will have a loving and devoted wife.I worked in Aisa for many years and had long term relationships with two different Thai women and found them to be unfaithful while I was away at work.I think that if you get a good Cambodian woman and love and respect each other you will never have any marriage problems.

    I am a Cambodian woman who married an American man. we’ve been married for almost 10 years. we live happily together, yes i don’t have much friends, we live in the country, but that was not what couldn’t make a couple happy together.
    I love to correct what you just wrote Mr. 7 reasons. it maybe sounds kind of funny the way you wrote it, but it’s not funny at all. you make it sounds like Cambodian women in general are not worth to married to. think again and again about it!!!
    you maybe met a girl who works in one of those bar at the Riverside, or the one who was not get through educations.
    1- Cambodia is a small country but one of the fast growing country in southeast Asia, so there are plenty of jobs for Cambodians and also foreigners ( as long as you a degree or more). that’s why there are so many foreigner work in Cambodia, even they make less money than in their own country but they can live pretty well off of $1000/month.
    2- yes, it would be funny, if you’re that old (consider)try to find a young girl then talk about her imperfections. is that matter what people say about your wife if she’s the right one/ the good one for you?
    3- this is so ridiculous about how you talk about somebody’s age or beauty. you just have no idea of what you’re talking about! you just don’t know what people over there had been through in their life!
    you have all of these knowledge but you have no respect to others. I don’t care if you live in the country full of rights, but respect would shows your personality well.
    4- just another thing that you don’t know what are you talking about!
    can you explain what is Motodop means? before you say, before you public your post, you need to do some reserch! there is no Motodops in America, but why there are so many dump heard out there do all kind of crazy thing? can you explain that?
    5- (The paperwork sounds like a real hassle)I know there are so many Americans and other nationalities been through the same sets of paper work when they married Cambodian or Asian woman. My husband and I did all the paper works our self. everything work out perfectly fine! you just don’t know anything what you wrote so far.
    let me make this clear: You’re not cambodian, you have nothing to do with Sangkat ( district house). you just need to get your paper work from your country done, so she ( your future wife ( if there is one) do her part there!!!)
    6- sounds like you just want to find a uneducated girl to be your future wife. who in the world would do such a thing in the public? unless somebody who’s not right in the heard.
    7- i guess, you must be so proud of yourself or you must be pretty well of! that’s why you always thought, somebody who wants to be with you, must be interested only in your geeg of brain money.
    there is a lot more i want to say but lwt some othere give you their opinions…
    I hope, after all what you wrote, you’re not the one who turn out to be a sorry *** husband and PLEASE STAY A WAY FROM CAMBODIAN GIRLS/WOMEN AFTER ALL OF THOSE NEGATIVE.

    I can’t believe how politically correct and sensitive most of the commentators are on this piece. It was the funniest thing I have read on Cambodia for a while and in a way so true. All humor is effectively exaggeration otherwise it would not be funny and just plain boring. There are always other viewpoints and this is just one. It is not even the writer’s personal viewpoint as can be identified by his writing style. Most of the commentators are clearly too stupid to realize this. It is just a funny stereotypical view clearly not completely shared by the writer.

    Truth is Cambodia is a country full of corruption. The corruption is not the government, it is inside the people. they will never ever be able to clean this country. The same like some (not all) african countries they don’t want to work on their future in those African countries for example.

    But in Cambodia it is a bit different, here they just like short cuts and they believe money is the highest thing in life. Even in the temples you have to pay to pray. really crazy! if you come to a temple without money you loose your face they believe. so offering people money for a short cut is never ever seen as an insult or a bad thing. You can NEVER EVER get that out of their heads. like you can’t convert muslims to christians. some things are impossible.

    about the girls, I think most are nice and good women but you will need to put up strict rules. and it is too bad but true they are not good with bookkeeping.. finance..

        It does not mean all Cambodian girls like that guy said it is just individual. Your criticism is not really true. how many Cambodian lady you married, otherwise you dare to judge that. Every man/woman of all nations, bad or good are all have. If you go to pick a lady from a bar, sure she needs the money for supporting her life. Likewise, if you pick up a lady from a bar in your country, same. Everywhere. However, what i can define the good manner of Cambodian lady are honest, helpful, care each other, etc. You ought to learn the Cambodia Culture clearer to understand how the most Cambodian are good. If you are the real man and good enough plus well educated person you should not say such silly word and defame her wife as well as defame to all Cambodian lady. Come and see me face to face i will teach you.

    Your are not all wrong, but the things you say about the paperwork and dowries are a bit too rough since they are just our traditional. No matter what race you are, when you get married you should adapt with one another’s way of life If it’s true love.

    I admit it, some Cambodian girls married white guys just for money, and for the mixed child. But you know what?? Not all of us Cambodian want your money or your mixed child. Some of us just love the way you live independently, we love your smartness, your confidential that we barely found in Cambodian guys. I am a Cambodian girl who loves white guys just because they’re nice, smart, look confident, high educated, independent, perfect smell, but i never want their money, like never ever. I’m just a normal girl who found white guys are attractive and that’s all.

    I don’t know, i found this article very offensive, that made me feel really disappointed that white guys assume us Cambodians are the same for needing only their money and would embarrassed them in public. Maybe the idea that i like white guys would change from now. I will never ever have an eyes on white guys anymore.

    I am married to a Cambodian wife, and I would not recommend it. Cambodian woman do not treat their husbands well, and it is part of their culture. We have many Cambodian families that we interact with, and it is always the same- the woman treat their men like sh%#@t. Also a cambodian wife expect a free flow of money to her and to her family. They look like marrying a western man like they just won the lottery.

    I would recommend a Filipino wife. They seem to be much more loving and take good care of their men.

    I can see some humor but it’s also hurtful at the same time.

    As far as I’ve learned. Everyone have their own mind and personality. Not the same as you say. It just depends on the girl you meet. I have relative at Cambodia and I am half myself. Some of my relative are kind. Some people I meet there(beside my family) are kind people. Some love their husband(or wives if your a boy). While others don’t and can abuse one another.

    So before you slam down on one culture or beauty. You should think as a human. That everyone will hold different principles. Some people will be royal to their spouse. Some may not. Some may be ignorant and selfish. And some may as well be sweet and loving.

    So please think about that before dashing out your number. As it depends who you meet. 🙂 And also yourself. S

    I am Australian and I lived in China for six years and I am planning to go to Cambodia in late October or early November as a tourist, and if I really like it, I will live there. I was hoping to meet a wife in China, but sadly, it was not to be, although I think and have been told that I am kind, smart, and handsome.

    I feel that if two people, an Asian woman and a Western man have a good connection, chemistry, that is the most important thing, the age gap is not so important. I hope to find my soulmate in Cambodia, a woman who really loves me. Need some TLC, which I was unable to find/get either here in Australia or in China. God luck to me!

    One other thing, a serious note, the Cambodians suffered a lot under the brutality of the evil Pol Pot and his cronies, so I feel this must be taken in consideration by potential newcomers. The history of Cambodia is different to some other Asian nations.

      After years in Cambodia have Khmer wife, won’t suggest to anyone though. I agree that the age gap is not that important.

    To the reply that said .. “Not all Cambodian Women look for money”. You are spot on. Not all Western women do either, but like for the most part Cambodian women are like women everywhere; MOST look for security for themselves and their offspring and money, (or the means to earn and it) is usually considered to be security.

    IMHO, Cambodian women are women and they are pretty much all the same the world over, especially after you marry them!

    First and foremost, this has got to be the most ignorant article I have ever read. Generalizing Cambodian women when you should look at yourself as a man. You are comparing a woman to a puppy, and saying Cambodian women don’t age well. Are you talking about your ex girlfriend? All of the Cambodian women in my life are beautiful and absolutely ageless. What was the point of this article? To demonstrate your hatred towards Cambodian women? Or was this a bag of skeletons that you needed to haul out? I have concluded that this article was written by a heart broken and bitter man whose ex girlfriend was a Cambodian woman that left him for a better man. I hope you get better, not bitter. – A Cambodian Woman

    In general, a perfect marriage can be very difficult to judge by whether she is a Cambodian or American. Cambodian wife can be very family oriented and she would like to send money to assist her sibling or relative back home. I know a khmer women, she married a white guy. This khmer women works in the donut shop and she sends her hard earn money to her siblings for schools. In America, if you don’t have money, you dont expected to ask your sister to help you. You will need to take load or ask your parents.

    If an AMerican man marry a Cambodian woman, and move to America. Surely, she will find a job and support herself and send some money back home to support her family. And, I can see the different between Cambodia girl and the Philipine is that Cambodian girl will not ask you for money, she will get herself a job and make the money.

    GavinMac, It’s 2019, and I doubt how have you been doing now. Still single in Cambodia, or you went back to your amazing country and got married to a white woman in her 50s?

    Hilarious stuff. Wish you were still at it.
    The droves of triggered imbeciles are hilarious too – stunningly moronic.
    It’s litterally shocking to see people with no sense of humor or even the ability to separate humor from reality.

    “I AGREE WITH HIM PLEASE READ ON” For those that Said, the negative American remarks, this issue has nothing to do with Nationality, Color, or Race. This issue at hand is called “BAD CONTRACT” marriage is a bad contract that allows government to rule your relationship, money and visa access.
    I am Spanish but i lived in the US all my life, the issues the writer shares have happened to me in my home country as well as in the U.S.A. I am dual citizen in both country’s, i have had many women
    pleasures and very grateful for it. The lesson hear is have kids dont marry and enjoy the pleasure of women until you die. Life is to short enjoy its pleasures with out government control, everyone’s problems in world and have all ways been government related.
