Do SIN SUAN TUA and SIN SOMROS apply to all marriages?

In Thailand

Last Updated: Nov 1, 2022

I read so little about SIN SUAN TUA and SIN SOMROS on the various web pages about divorce and estate divisions in Thailand, but I think they are the most important principles of matrimonial property law. My concrete question: are all marriages in Thailand subject to the SIN SUAN TUA and SIN SOMROS, or are there exceptions? I have a 'normal' marriage and want to divorce a Thai woman who for financial reasons absolutely does not want to divorce. For me the SIN SUAN TUA and SIN SOMROS are going to play a role.

Sin Somros, which entails tenancy by the entirety with right of survivorship, is the default marital property regime in Thailand, unless the spouses opt for Sin Suan Tua.

Sin Suan Tua (Separate Property) consists of:

  • Property belonging to either spouse before marriage.
  • Property for personal use, (dresses or ornaments, professional tools, etc.).
  • Property acquired by either spouse during marriage through a will or gift.
  • Khongman (betrothal gift or dowry).
