Status after marriage to a Thai

I am a Swedish national. What status do I get by marrying a Thai national? In particular, can I stay in Thailand, work or do business, or own land or property in my name?

Marriage to a Thai national confers no rights as such, though a marriage certificate may be used in support of applications for visas and work permits. Generally speaking, foreigners may not own land in Thailand.
