A young Buddhist couple falling back on an old traditional belief, have married off their twin children on the grounds that they were lovers in their previous lives. The children, 6 years old, were married in a lavish ceremony.
The young boy, nicknamed Guitar, and his sister, Kiwi, were born in September 2012 and their parents immediately knew they would have to get married.
The father of the twin, Amornsan Sunthorn Malirat, 31, and mother, Phacharaporn, 30, arranged a lavish ceremony for their children in Samut Prakan on the outskirts of Bangkok, Thailand.
The ‘couple’ then posed together with their arms around each other for wedding pictures. Despite them being ‘married’ according to local customs, the ceremony is not legally binding and each of them will still be able to seek out their own partners when they are older.
