The twins of Singburi mayor Narongsak Wingworn were joined in marriage yesterday in a ceremony designed to ward off potential bad luck.
Three year olds Win-Win (the groom in suit and tie) and Wa-Wa (the bride in flowing white bridal attire) were paid all the usual compliments of a traditional Thai wedding at the mayor’s house in Bang Phusa sub-district of the central Thai city.
The dowry was 888,888 baht and 100 baht weight in gold (worth about two million baht) was laid out as many society figures in Singburi enjoyed the party.
Many Thais believe that twins have the potential to suffer bad luck and marrying them in this way helps stop misfortune.
Thai Rath reported that the twins had suffered some minor illnesses recently.
