6 Year Old Twins Gets Married To Each Other In A Wedding Prepared By Their Own Parents
A pair of six-year-old twins have been married in a lavish ceremony prepared by their own parents. The young boy, nicknamed Guitar, and his sister, Kiwi, were born in September 2012. Their parents immediately knew they would have to get married.
The twin’s father Amornsan Sunthorn Malirat, 31, and mother, Phacharaporn, 30, arranged a lavish ceremony for their children in Samut Prakan on the outskirts of Bangkok, Thailand.
A traditional ceremony featured a street procession. A game then followed by where the groom had to pass through nine ‘gates’ before he could meet the bride. The young boy then had to pay a dowry of 200,000 baht in cash and gold worth the equivalent of Php 323,000 before marrying her twin. The ‘couple’ then posed together with their arms around each other for wedding pictures.
Dozens of guests including friends of the family, relatives and neighbours turned out for the ceremony.
Despite them being ‘married’ according to local customs, the ceremony is not legally binding. Each of the twin will still be able to seek out their own partners once they grow older.
The children’s mother, Phacharaporn, said:
“They were both so sweet during their wedding. They will be the best of friends for the rest of their lives. They’ll be able to find their own husband or wife when their older. But this ceremony will always be important for them.”
These twins were married as their parents believe ‘they were lovers in past lives’!

Buddhists believe that male and female twins have ‘karma’ from relationships in a previous life. They have been re-born together because the debt has not been settled. The old saying goes that unless they’re married as quickly as possible once they’re old enough, they will experience bad luck in the future.
