Six year old Thai / Italian twins ‘marry’ in Songkhla
SONGKHLA: — Two six year old twins with Thai and Italian parents married in a ceremony in Songkhla in the south of Thailand yesterday.
Twins often “marry” according to local beliefs that the practice will bring good luck to both them and the family ensuring they will always be together and have a long and happy life, reported Sanook.
Tying the knot yesterday were groom Peno Vincent Curotto, the younger of the two six year olds, and his sister the bride Cara Francis.
Parents Joseph Curotto from Italy and mother Pornsri Wijitsopha joined many guests at the wedding that had all the trappings of a real marriage complete with dowry.
Little Cara had to attend the ceremony in a cast after injuring her left arm in an accident three days before, but she did the best she could, reported Sanook.
