Marriage & Relationships[edit]

Why is there no mention of his marriage(s) or romantic relationships in personal life or elsewhere? There are only links to pages for his wife and other partners in the 'personality cult' section, which only says that the VN govt suppresses this information. Is this page just doing the party's work for them? (talk) 02:20, 5 April 2016 (UTC) 5/4/2016

I have dubious-tagged the "none" under marriage, clearly he was.--Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 03:24, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
According to various sources Chi Minh had romantic relationships with Nguyễn Thị Minh Khai, Nông Thị Xuân, and Tăng Tuyết Minh. There is no current mention of them as far as I can tell in the article, although I vaguely remember them being mentioned in past revisions of this article.

It is pretty much indisputable Ho Chi Minh was married to Zeng Xueming. However, evidence of any relationship with those other women is shaky at best. --4idaho (talk) 13:03, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Legacy and personality cult[edit]

"Both Vietnamese and foreign activists, writers, reporters and commentators who criticize anything about Ho in the slightest are arrested and imprisoned or fined for "opposing the people's revolution".

This and other derogatory text in this section are not supported by the text. If in fact they are true the proper source should be used.

This article should be written in English[edit]

In many parts of the article there are many non-english characters, symbols, and well, I don't know what. I am sure that if this article was written for a Vietnamese person in vietnamese, where perfect pronunciation was important, agreement between the written word and how the word sounds in vietnamese, then maybe then all the non-english characters would be meaningful. The ham-handed effort to make english sound like vietnamese only serves to make this article difficult to read. This is no different that trying to mimic a modem audio stream sound where the data (00110010100111001010101010) is the pertinent content.

english for english readers vietnamese for vietnamese readers binary for computers ...regardless of what it sounds like. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:181:C381:1C4C:103F:D96A:2956:44FE (talk) 23:43, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

His birthplace is listed as "Vietnam," but would it not have been officially known as French Indochina at the time of his birth? Brad E. Williams (talk) 22:41, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
