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. 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?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. When you would cringe whenever they opened their mouths in front of your friends? I’m easily embarrassed by the slightest social faux pas committed by myself or my companions.I suppose there are similar stigmas when marrying women from other countries. Motodops are the primary evidence supporting that theory. Really, some of these Cambodian women are just cute little public-nose-picking-embarrassment-ticking-time bombs. I would wonder if she would have preferred to marry a Cambodian guy her own age, had the economic situations been equal.But if I marry a hot young Ukrainian bride, at least she would be white. Every year people buy hundreds of thousands of puppies. Then the puppies become unattractive, smelly, loud, annoying, dogs. 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. To be honest, I don’t want kids at all, whether genetically disadvantaged or otherwise. I had a job when I was 4.” Then I laugh hysterically and the kid runs and hides behind his mother’s leg. 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. You never know when they are going to start excavating in there. 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 i Phone 17.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.Insinuations about policy, political affiliations, and personal scandals helped to discredit figures representing both the ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) and the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP).Overall, the CNRP fared worse, with leaked information factoring into some high profile prosecutions.
The decline was offset by steadily improving internet penetration.
Sure, my co-workers would probably stop thinking “He must be gay.” Instead, they would think, “What a schmuck. 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. Some Americans would see her brown skin and assume that I married my Mexican cleaning lady. Most motodops are the genetic product of a poor, uneducated Cambodian father and a poor, uneducated Cambodian mother. Imagine that she dazzles my friends and co-workers with her natural beauty, grace, and charm for the better part of three hours.
Others might guess that I got my dark skinned Asian wife from the Philippines. Only desperate losers marry women from the Philippines. They are slow-witted, annoying, directionally-challenged imbeciles. We all know the theory about the Cambodian gene pool being weakened by Pol Pot killing all the smart people. 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. 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’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.
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. Hammer pants and walking down the aisle with a young Cambodian bride. After further consideration, I have realized that there are seven equally compelling reasons why I should NOT marry a Cambodian woman. Should he move to Cambodia, or should she move to his country? The type of work I do can’t easily be done in Cambodia. So if I lived in Cambodia, I would essentially be semi-retired and living off savings.
When a Westerner marries a Cambodian woman, the couple has a very important initial decision to make.
