Parents marry 3-year-old twins with THB3 million dowry to fix bad karma

Superstitious parents in Nakhonsawan province hosted a big traditional wedding for their 3-year-old twins in attempt to fix their bad karma.

Petai Angdechawat married his twin sister Pailin at their home on Saturday. The adorable pair had their Thai wedding ceremony at their home on Saturday as Petai offered his sister a whopping THB3 million in cash and gold as her dowry.

In Thai culture, it is believed that opposite-sex twins were lovers in the past life who were prevented from being together. Being born together as twins means their prayers were delivered by God.

Parents must marry their twins for blessing to send a message to God that they’re well and in love; otherwise the cultural belief is that the children might die very young, News Connect reported.

Petai and Pailin also had this cute wedding photoshoot which went viral on Twitter.
