Seven year old Trang Twins marry in a big ceremony

Translated from Thai

Tharaporn and Tharapong – seven year olds – are the children of Natthapong and Pilanthana Pankhong who own a big agricultural equipment supply firm in the southern Thai town. The twins were married in a lavish ceremony.

Some 1000 guests turned up for the ceremony that is held to satisfy old beliefs that by so doing the twins will avoid misfortune and live a long life.

It was reported that they had been ill quite a lot – often at the same time – and the parents didn’t like the look of that.

A dowry of 1 million baht was laid out for the bride while there was also a one carat diamond and heaps of gold weighing 20 baht that is worth 400,000 baht in cash terms.

The wedding took place in Na To Ming sub-district of Muang district, Trang.

The marriage followed hot on the heels of a smaller affair earlier. Marrying off twins is a not uncommon event in Thailand where old beliefs and the love of a party hold sway.
