    • I like Thailand because.................................
      By Dixie · Posted
      Interesting comment on the younger generation Perfectd!! I too noticed the obsessive behaviour of the kids over there, more so in the cities, but I think thats more a global trend. I have two girls here in NZ and they drive me insane with the phones and social media. My Thai partner is also slowly starting to get into it... I am afraid its me thats being left behind, but I am happy about that.

      Not familiar with your situation, but I do believe that your blood type can create problems with regard to pregnancy, for example, if you are RH negative.
    • Blood Tests for Marrying in Laos
      By johninlaos · Posted
      Let me thank you again for sharing your advice previously on other issues I am experiencing in the marriage process for Laos. But I now have one which seems more urgent. My girlfriend and myself have already completed our required health check for satisfying the document checklist to apply for a marriage licence. Had our x-rays, vitals checked, HIV check and blood tests for whatever they check BUT now the hospital has called and insisted we both return and have a further blood test. They said, to my girlfriend, that it is to check 'our blood is ok for us to have children together'. Now forgive my lack of medical qualification but people with human blood can make children together. No amount of testing can pre-determine whether a child will be perfectly healthy. So my questions to all those who have married in Laos and completed the documents as required... Did you all do this second blood test and what is it actually testing for? Can you refuse to take the test and still have the licence to marry issued? Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated as this appears urgent due to the hospital contacting and asking us to go back immediately for the test.. TIA JohninLaos
