Sweden Now Has Highest Percentage of Local Men with Thai Wives – Swedish Government Promises ‘to Investigate Possible Abuse’…

Sexual globalisation and the resulting third wave feminist response in action :

Sweden now the country with the highest percentage of Thai wives

Sweden has emerged as the country with the highest percentage of local men with Thai wives or life partners.

As well as a growing number of Thai workers travelling to Sweden as seasonal workers, the number of Thai women arriving in Sweden has increased three fold over the last 10 years. Over 80% of Thai immigrants to Sweden are relationship partners or Thai wives of Swedish men and Sweden, like Germany has a long tradition of men seeking Thai women as life partners. Sweden is one of a few countries where there is now a second and third generation Thai community which still maintains very close links with Thailand. However, the increased levels of younger Thai women now entering Sweden has now become a political issue.

Last year, a female governor of one rural Swedish province requested that the government look into this situation, investigate abuse and perhaps even limit the number of Thai women permitted into the country. She has now been given a mandate from the Swedish government to investigate the trend although government agencies and leading academic have also conductive a qualitative studies into the nature of the growing number of relationships between Swedish men and Thai women. Although Sweden portrays itself to be one of the more liberal countries in Europe, the Swedish government is concerned with this as immigration becomes a powerful and divisive political issue.

    I know some people in Sweden. The wife openly tells the husband that she used to love him but no longer does. She uses the fact that she is his children's mother to abuse and control him. She argues with him and devalues him. She is never content with him. He is afraid of her. She doesn't look pretty anymore or try to. She just wants to use him. Why should he stay with her? I guess he feels defeated. She could take all his money in a divorce and turn the children against him.
