Thai police officer gets slap down after trying to marry mistress




A Thai policeman is making headlines after getting a slap down from his own mother after he attempted to marry his mistress. The man went as far as scheduling a wedding, with monks present to bless the union, but his mom and real wife of 16 years, along with their kids, aged 5 and 15, crashed the party.

Nipapan Peuchpen, his legal wife, brought her marriage license to the nuptuals that took place in Chai Nat province, arguing that her husband had no right to marry another woman.

“This is our marriage license. I don’t know how they can go through with this.”

The policeman told his wife that the monks were already here, and that she wasn’t a guest and to go home. Then the man’s mother showed up and slapped him in the head. According to Khaosod English, the mother issued a statement to Amarin TV.

“I always taught him to not mess around with adultery. I warned him so many times. Now he has to reap what he sowed. At first, I understood that being adulterous to some extent was normal for men. But I didn’t think he would go this far.”

“I want this to be a lesson to all women! If you know a man already has a family, don’t be a homewrecker. I don’t understand why the bride got married to him, knowing that he was already married.”

Nipapan and her lawyer filed a legal complaint to the Chai Nai Juvenile and Family Court against the policeman’s girlfriend, asking for compensation for trying to marry her husband when he was already married.

Thailand has always been a culture where adultery has somewhat been tolerated, as many Thai men have lovers on the side, called a Mia Noi. But, legally, only 1 marriage can be registered at a time.

    Better to take 20 concubines while you have one Thai wife. Then no problem.

    Child support and alimony may cut back on men having “wives” and kids all over the place. My wife’s biological father, who at one time was quite well off, had three of four wives, and multiple children. She has many half brothers and sisters. It’s confusing. Time to get into the current century.

    Good on you, Khun Nipapan! Make sure you and the kids will get the widow and orphan benefits you deserve someday and no one usurps your position! Not much ever happens in Chai Nat. This will be the talk of the town for weeks!

      Remember what happened to Tiger Woods when then wife went after him with 9 Iron after she caught him cheating.

      Tiger hasn’t been the same since.

    Thai “minor” wife culture still exists,especially with those wealthy and powerful,as adultery is not considered a crime.Abortion is also banned due to religion and culture.A marriage with a mistress is still accepted with the blessings of the monks.Furthermore,many single women are suffering due to “missing” husbands or boyfriends that they have to care of their “unwanted” kids all on their own or with help from their parents. That is the reality of life in the country for decades with no changes in the horizon.

    A Thai friend who owns a few houses told me one of her houses is rented out to a Thai man and his Mia Noi.

    I asked what that was and he said it is a second wife as his real wife lives on the other side of town, it seem to be accepted as being OK, it is unusual as the vast majority of Thais do not do it but it did not seem to cause much of a reaction to others living near by.

    I saw the guy once and he did look a little bit worn out.

    But shouldn’t the policeman in this article lose his job by illegally trying to marrying more than one woman?

      It was just “temple wedding” with no legal effect. If he had tried to legally register the 2nd marriage at a district office, that would have been a much different story.

    The video I saw was his wife slapping him in the head a couple times. I didn’t see the rest of his family present.

      As I understood the news broadcast, it was his mother who was slapping him…

    A new Thai Law came about in the past few years regarding the rights of Thai Wives and other women knowingly messing around with their husbands…

    As a general rule in western countries, marrying the mistress never works out. Jealousy issues arise quickly because obviously if the man played around with you, then why wouldn’t he play around again? It works best in the case of an infertile/older wife and a pregnant mistress. In Thailand though the man can really take on as many women as he can afford, and wives tacitly are okay with this (for reasons unfathomable to me: Don’t they like sex and sleeping in the same bed with their man too?) unless it upsets the apple cart of losing face…which marrying the mistress would have done. Well it will be the gossip of the town!
