While in the western world people like to carve a love swear in long living trees like oak trees, Thai people seem to prefer a bamboo love swear. As bamboo is a relatively short-living material, a bamboo love swear will not last for a long time. Is this a synonym for the often short-termed relationship between Thai boys and Thai girls ?
Fact is, that relations in Thailand split easily, while there is the slightest problem occuring. Thai people hate problems and they also hate to clear problems,
the common way is just to run away. But not just young Thai teenager behave like that, also adults don`t like to clear up there problems and so families split easily. Victims are often their children, who become homeless and ending up on the streets, where misery takes it`s course.
