A few years ago, Laura Barry began an investigation to see why so many mail-order brides arrive in Ireland. She traveled to Thailand and to Philippines in order to discover the truth related to the marriages men in the United Kingdom make with Thai brides. All the information she received and all the people she met were included in a documentary. In this article, you have the chance to see a small part of it, the story of a Thai woman who married an older English man who was previously single for at least two years and who didn’t take into consideration the idea of having a relationship and marriage with an English woman of his age. Viewing the interview with him and with his much younger Thai wife, you can observe for yourself all that they don’t say. He seems content with his life and with his family but during 5 minutes she does not say a word unless asked by him, a thing which easily raises eyebrows.

Men are clearly very happy with resilient women who cook for them, care for them and raise the kids all on their own, while their only job (men’t) is to provide for all. Of course, it’s not very easy to earn money to support a family, but let’s not forget that being a mom and taking care of the house is not an easy job either.
