In a strange occurrence, twin siblings, Singburi mayor and Narongsak Wingworn were joined in marriage in a ceremony designed to ward off potential bad luck.
Three year old ‘groom’ Win-Win and the ‘bride’, Wa-Wa, were paid all the usual compliments of a traditional Thai wedding at the mayor’s house in Bang Phusa sub-district of Singburi, last Sunday.
The dowry which 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.
According to Thai Rath, the twins had suffered some minor illnesses recently.
