Three year old Thai twins "marry" to trick the spirits!

ANG THONG: -- Three year old twins - a boy and a girl - got married in Ang Thong province yesterday according to ancient customs and beliefs.

 

The ceremony with all the trappings of a real Thai wedding was held at the Chalerm Prakiat building. Relatives of the twins came to pour water from a conch shell on the couple's hands to bless them, reported Thairath.

 

And there was a dowry too - two baht weight of gold and 22,222 baht in cash.

 

The groom is called Teekhathat and his sister is Taweesaa and they are 3 years and 4 months old and hail from Talat Wiset Chai Charn in the central Thai province.

 

Their mum Sasi explained that the ceremony is to ward off bad luck hanging over from past lives.

 

Old beliefs state that when a boy and girl are born as twins they were in fact soul mates in a previous life but were unable to live together.

 

This causes them to be born together in this life. They must get married otherwise one of them will die.

 

In this way the spirits are tricked into believing they are in love and can never be separated.

 

A great time was had by all and now the children will live happily ever after.

Ridiculous. 

 

Sometimes the only way to combat stupidity is ridicule.

Erm... News flash! They will both eventually die. Unavoidable I'm afraid.

Wait till Kentucky and Tennessee hear about this. There will be a record amount of conversions. Best of all, they won't have to go to family reunions to find mates.

Articles like this go to prove how backward some people in Thai society are.

I say some, because I find the vast majority are quite normal.

It's okay, just a religious cermony they're not legally married as they would have to get registered. So they're still by law, single. Plus, love the cute photos of the mum!

One up from throwing spilled salt over one's shoulder, I guess.

So Thais are actually admitting that their spirits are easily fooled ?

The problem is that Thais rarely mature beyond a emotional age of around 8. They are scared of the dark, superstitious, believe in ghosts, have not developed empathy for other people's situations unless it's a face making act of 'kindness', can be easily manipulated to believe in stuff straight from a Hans Christian fairy tale and want things because their classmates have them. It's difficult not to interact with Thais as though they are toys. It's difficult to take most of them seriously. I'm fine with that though. There are exceptions of course, my wife is different.

Not sure about easily fooled but we can atleast surmise they do not follow the news.
