Khun Harmony, the Old Age Security and Canada Pension Plan are automatically provided upon your request. The Old Age Security kicks in at 65 (the age may be raised soon to 67), and, I think you can get the Canada Pension Plan earlier at around 63 or so. These are Government of Canada Pensions. On my death they would go to a spouse, and/or children or anyone I name until their death.

My work pension from a high school goes, upon my death, in the first place to a spouse, if I have one, at age 65. If there is no spouse, it goes to my children. If there are no children, it goes to a beneficiary that I mentioned on the policy. If none is stated, the state gets whatever remains of the pension. The spouse would get that pension until her death even if she re-marries.

The Government of Canada does not discriminated based on age or race in the distribution of the pension after my death. They also recognise same sex marriages as valid for the pension, paying taxes and everything else.

Yes. In the first instance, the pension goes to the spouse. They don't call it a widow pension. It is my pension that goes to a spouse/children/benificiary/state on my death.

If I remember well there is/was a Canadian who asked 'newbie' questions about Thai women on different
fora. What would be your advice with regard to Canadian pension(s) as described by Khun Laan Yaa Mo
to this potential easy victem of diva's???

Mine: play the game and explain the pension-system but marry with a village ceremony/party only....hehehe :-"
Appoint the one you care in for example Canada as the beneficiary

You are right.
My example was about a heartless diva but perhaps she can change.
If its allowed to change the beneficiary on a later stage perhaps its to be considered.

Exactly,but love can make people blind.

Spoke with many couples who are happy here but spoke also with many who would make other choices
if they knew what they know now after a disaster. So some hints/advices what you read here
and in some other threads to 'newbies' can not harm :D

Look also for example:

From Wiki: Thailand is one of the most tolerant countries in Asia in regards to homosexuality. Both male and female same-sex sexual activity are legal in Thailand, but same-sex couples and households headed by same-sex couples are not eligible for the same legal protections available to opposite-sex couples.

However, you can marry a dead person.

You can marry twin sisters as well.

i have just read on the belgium embassy website that aparantly according to a change in the thai system , foreigners whom are living permanent in thailand , and are registered at their embassy here , are required to show the yellow tabien baan only as proof of domicile , and not any other document accepted ,in case they want to marry in thailand...

No. Thailand is still forbidding marriage in between same "s-e"x" couples (I put it like this to avoid being deleted.
But it might be the first country in South East Asia to do it.
There has been many articles in the newspapers recently about it.
