    Dr Dill, have a read at the above brainfart - there is no way that I have any chance of having twins regardless of my wife's status.

    I know where's a couple of Twins you can have regardless of whether you have a wife or not

    The point I was making Andy M.O is twins run mainly down the Maternal side

    There is much to be said for maintaining traditions even if they are rather rather bizarre to Jonny Foreigner, one of the beauties here is that folks can practice the bizarre without fear of social services taking their kids away from them for emotional abuse.

    My children (3) were all conceived at the same time using IVF but born 16 months apart. My wife gave up trying to explain to the village women as they haven't a clue about these things. Basically they're triplets born months apart.

    The fertility clinic fertilized 15 eggs. One egg was implanted and produced a daughter. The rest of the eggs were frozen. My wife was implanted 6 months after the first daughter was born with 2 eggs that had been frozen, resulting in twins.

    So it's not genetics that produced the twins, but science.

    Very cool and thanks for sharing it. I've been here yonks and never heard of that ceremony.

    /\ ditto, I never knew about this folklore, I did have the idea of Twins was bad-luck, but my Thai wife would adore to have 2.

    He doesn't like having to pose for photo's. My missus worships the ground he walks on and he knows it.

    Great thread thanks for sharing. My wife likes the children, of course. Though as Filipina she finds the ceremony weird.

    Thanks to all replies. I too found the ceremony weird but no harm was caused and it's not often the locals see this ceremony. We're happy in helping to keep the tradition alive.

    This is a little off topic but relevant in how Thais think.

    A few months back we were selling out Fortuner. A guy bought it from us without really giving it the once over. The reason for buying was solely based on that we had twins. His married son hadn't produced children and the car was for him. It was hoped that the karma from the car would pass on to the son and trigger a reaction. True story.

    What would have happened if the twins were the same sex, do they still 'marry'?

    that's an honest question btw.

    ^ No ceremony. Nothing. I asked the same question.
    Some say, on here, that having twins is seen to be bad luck. Ive asked about this also. I can't find any evidence to support that.

    ^It unfortunately never appears to be valid on anything I have to pay....X2.

    Which so far today has been Tae Kwan Do weekly payment - X2; Karate weekly payment - X2; annual tuition - X2; Starbucks - X2,...............................you get the drift. And it's only noon.
