      sarcasm is the lowest form of wit...   anyway, the points that you are trying to make are not connected...IF you were to take a look at all cultures, there is probably a similar type of history...must we all read about a culture and learn about it before we can understand it?
      But, if it is your importance to be right...ok, you are right.
    • Discovered our father has secret family in Laos after he passed away
      By stumpy · Posted
      I go along with METHOS on this.  To get married here in Laos requires a myriad of paperwork and one of those bits of paper is the Certificate of no impediment/Affidavit of Single Status.  You can get 'married' by just having a simple ceremony in the persons village but this is not a legal marriage and is not recognised as such by say, the Australian authorities.I had to register my legal marriage with the Australian Embassy here in Vientiane.  If you have not already done so,I would suggest that you obtain the services of a good lawyer in Vientiane. Get them to gather all information about his Lao wife and see if there was a village ceremony.

To illustrate here are a couple of pictures I took today in my sister in law's office, note these are Tesco's own brand product. . . And on the other end. . .
