Incest is generally considered as one of the worst taboos ever because really, why would you even…? Even nature penalizes mammals who resort to incest with genetic anomalies. It can be revolting for human beings to try to justify incest… but no, not for some Buddhist priests in Thailand. They actually wed twins because they believed the two were past lovers.
A six-year-old boy nicknamed Guitar and his twin sister nicknamed Kiwi just got married. That’s not something you hear every day, but it happened in Bangkok, Thailand. The two were born back in 2012 and apparently, they were special because the local Buddhist priests believed that the twins had “karma” being past lovers in their previous lives and have been re-born together where that “debt” has not been settled.
Basically, from the moment they were born, their parents actually groomed and conditioned them for marriage to each other. All because of a Buddhist belief. The priests even warned the parents that if the two were not to wed as soon as possible, they might experience some bad luck in the future.
Hence, this thing:
As you can see, even the whole town was into it. The wedding ceremony was indeed lavish and even cost thousands of dollars. Here they are:
“The reason for the marriage ceremony is because we believe that both the children used to be partners in the past life. This is a belief we have inherited from ancient people. We must arrange a wedding for the two twins as a solution to the issues they had before they were re-born. If they are married, they will live healthy and successful lives and not be sick,” said
Still, the said wedding and marriage was not legally binding and the twins will still be able to seek out and prefer their own respective partners when they are older. Apparently, they just did it to avoid bad luck and to fix the “karma” of the twins as past lovers, as per the Buddhist’s warnings.
