This blog post highlights and explores a piece of research focused on female Thai nationals married to a UK citizen living in England. The aim of the research was to gain an understanding about the women’s experiences of their move to England. This included exploring how they met their husbands, process of marriage and immigration procedures, the relationships they formed within their immediate and extended families, local community, employment opportunities, education, friendships and how the women maintain family links in Thailand, as well as identifying any barriers that were/are experienced by the women. The idea for this study has been on my conscious for over a decade following a chance meeting with a Thai woman whom I met through previous research. It became apparent that Thai women, being a small dispersed ethnic group has received minimal focus about their experiences following migratory marriage and who are now living in the UK.
