Lucky man marries thai twins simultaneously
Stranger Worlds ^ | June 8, 2009

Posted on 02/23/2011 11:37:59 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

After Mr Wichai (Tao), aged 24, from Samut Songkram province, who earns his living by dealing in old goods, got married to gorgeous twins Ms Sirintara and Ms Thipawan 22, he vouched his sincerest 'equal love' for both of them!

Mr Wichai, just yesterday, got married in a grand ceremony to both twins simultaneously.

On being interviewed by Thai Rath reporters, Mr Wichai declared wholeheartedly that he didn't see much problem in having to perform tiresome marital duties with two wives.

In the engagement ceremony before the wedding dress gallery, Mr Wichai successfully offered a dowry of eight baht of gold and 80,000 baht EACH for his lovely darlings.

Both families celebrated the marriage with joy and were said to be delighted for the threesome.

Mr Wichai told the press that he had been best of friends with his neighbouring twins since they were children.

'When I grew older, I would walk past their house each morning and try to decide for myself which one I fancied more, but it was darn impossible - I adored BOTH of them - I just couldn't decide which one of them to chat up.....!' He went on to say, 'For three continuous years all three of us would go on dates together, until there was one day when I couldn't stand the frustration any longer and told them, 'I love you and want to marry you BOTH''

The fortunate Mr Wichai, instead of getting a slap in the face, was overjoyed when both girls admitted to having sworn all along that they wished to marry the same man!

'It wasn't easy at first, what with the neighbours gossiping, but our family sympathized, understood, and fully supported our mutual love for the one man' the twins said.

Mr Wichai arranged for his brides to live with him in his family house after the wedding, and his mother has already proudly prepared TWO rooms for the newly-weds.

Our reporters were just gagging to hear the response to this mouth-watering question:- "And.... what are the sleeping arrangements Mr Wichai?", to which he replied modestly with a beaming smile.

'Absolutely no problems! For the first three nights of the week, I will sleep with Ms Thipawan and the next three will be spent with Ms Sirintara. As for every Saturday, the three of us will sleep together'.

Ms.Sirintara finally told the press, 'When my twin and I worked as assistant nurses, we promised each other that we would never leave each other's side, and that our future husband would have to either take us both, or leave us.'

King David did a lot of things. He murdered, too, and offended God in many ways, and was judged. Once, when he numbered his people against God’s wishes, God killed over 30,000 Israelites in judgement against him.

We can’t base our lives on David, at least not on his sinful behavior. He did good and right things too, and was a believer.

We are Christians, not Davidians or Abrahamians.

God started with Adam and Eve, one man, one woman. He never changed it.

Mathew 19:6: “So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” said Jesus.

Note, two. Not three or more.

Constant references to marriage law refer to one husband and one wife, both in the New Testament and the Old.

Ephesians 5:33

“However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.”

Note, not each one of you must love his wives, and the wives must respect their husband.

Note the requirements for being an elder:

Titus 1:6 “If a man is blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of dissipation or insubordination. . .”

Teaching regarding the relationship of marriage constantly reference one husband and one wife.

I am sorry I have to print out the fact that marriage is between one man and woman as ordained by God on Free Republic. I could cite a hundred or more Bible verses that directly teach or indirectly refer to the estate of marriage being between one man and one woman. It should not even be a question.

The polygamy practices of several (not all) of the patriarchs are shown as their downfall. Solomon was lost due to his pagan wives. The children of David’s several wives destroyed and divided the kingdom. Abraham’s polygamy set up the oldest ethnic rivalry on the planet, still working out today. Just because it is recorded in Scripture does not mean it is endorsed.

1 Corinthians 7:2 says, “Let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.” Polygamy is sinful for male or female. Women married to the same husband do not each have their own husbands.

In the engagement ceremony before the wedding dress gallery, Mr Wichai successfully offered a dowry of eight baht of gold and 80,000 baht EACH for his lovely darlings.

According to Wikipedia, 1 baht of gold is 0.4729523 troy ounces, so that would be about $10,500 of gold, plus about $5200 in cash. (Oddly the baht is both a weight and a currency. I guess that's like the UK pound.)

Maybe there culture is different enough and this “marriage” will work. I can't imagine having TWO wives, much less twins! But, perhaps if the Thai women are subservient and “know their place” it might work. But no thanks!

“You’re making the mistake of assuming these people are Christians. They may very well not be.”

No one knows who is in heaven for sure. Except for perhaps Seth, Enoch, Moses, Elijah, and Lazarus. The thief on the cross. Perhaps I have forgotten a handful.

The point is, the fact that Abraham, David, and Solomon sinned in this way doesn’t mean it is ok for us to do it.

They did a lot of other recorded sins, too, and we can’t copy those, either.

Like I said, you’re making the mistake of thinking these people are Christians. So they’re probably not too worried about how the God of Abraham defines sin.

Weren’t the Biblical patriarchs and kings in polygamous relationships? Were they sinning?

They also lived in an era when God's children wanted to approach Him, they were required to a) go through a priest and b) to offer animal and/or grain sacrifices, among other burdensome restrictions. That law has been obsolete for over 2000 years. We are no longer under the old law. We're under the New Law, and to have multiple simultaneous living marriage partners is sinful.

But since you brought up the patriarchs and monarchs, for future reference, polygamy/concubines (also accepted) didn't work out for them, either.

Abraham, for example, because of the jealousy of Sarah, cast out Hagar and (his first born son) Ishmael. The irony was that Sarah was the one who gave him Hagar in the first place.

Solomon had 1000 wives and 700 concubines. Polygamy didn't work out for him, either. Read Ecclesiastes. It's a book written by someone who evidently struggled with clinical depression.

And David? This Psalm, written by David, is acknowledged by some of the greatest Bible scholars as his lament over his having contracted sexually transmitted diseases.

Ps 38:4-7 4 For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me. 5 My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness. 6 I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long. 7 For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh. KJV

The trio mentioned in the article are in for hard times. Polygamy doesn't work. Somebody loses. And yes, they are sinning.

Our preacher got asked that the other day about the mulitple wives, and why that seemed to be “okay” with God back then.

He pointed out some OT verses where it was NOT okay. But he also mentioned how God had bigger things for David (and the others) to work on first. Just like us. And, in spite of their (and our) flaws, God can still use us.

from the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod ... and no, God did not overlook their sins...

"'Polygamy is prohibited by Scripture and all Christian churches. Monogamous marriage is the only form of marriage recognized by Jesus as instituted by God for all times (Matt. 19:4-6)....While Scripture records instances of polygamous marriage in the Old Testament, it does not thereby sanction polygamy. It is forbidden in the Moral Law (Lev. 18:18). The Civil Law of Moses did indeed permit it (Deut. 21:15-17), as it permitted also divorces not sanctioned by the Moral Law, and for the same reason, 'because of the hardness of their hearts' (Matt. 19:8). This toleration and regulation of polygamy and of divorce does not carry with it the sanction of Moral Law. A thing may be legally right, but not morally." (E. Koehler, A Summary of Christian Doctrine, 286)

"According to the divine institution, lawful marriage consists of one man and one woman (Gen. 2:18,24). Christ supported monogamy as the only proper form of marriage (Matt. 19:4-6). While the Bible does not directly condemn the plural marriages that occurred in the Old Testament, it candidly reports the evil effects of polygamy (or polygyny), as in the families of Jacob (Gen. 35:22; 37:18-28), David (2 Sam. 13; 15), and especially Solomon (1 Kings 11:1-2)." (J. T. Mueller, The Concise Evangelical Dictionary of Theology, "Polygamy")

The above-described position is similar to that held by the Roman Catholic Church (see Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1610, 1645, 2387).
