I am still debating to get offended by this news or laugh out loud. No, the news is not fake! A Thai multi-millionaire is actually looking for a groom for his ‘virgin’ daughter. According to the dad, the daughter is single, virgin, and speaks several languages. A businessman from Thailand, 58-year-old Arnon Rodthong is very concerned about his 26-year-old daughter, Karnsita Rodthong’s marriage. It’s natural for any father to worry but this kind of announcement is certainly taking it too far!
He came up with this brilliant idea offer for his future son-in-law that is almost inescapable. How thoughtful!
Arnon Rodthong announced that he will pay 10 million baht, approximately Rs 2 crore, to anyone who marries his daughter. Not just that! The person marrying his daughter will also get his entire estate. Being gracious he further promised to waive the ‘dowry fee’, a custom in Thailand where a groom pays money to his future bride. In his own words, Arnon Rodthong said:
‘I want someone to take care of my business and make it last. I don’t want a person with a bachelor’s, or master’s or philosopher’s degree. I want a diligent man. I just want someone with a hard-working attitude. That’s all. What’s more, there are no restrictions on the future groom’s nationality, as long as they work hard and make Karnsita happy.’
If you are thinking that the daughter is outraged by this proposition, then you are wrong. She is rather overwhelmed with the attention she is getting. Also, Karnsita has plans of her own with the money that her father is offering to her future husband. She wants to use a part of that money to go to Korea and get plastic surgery.
More than 10,000 men applied after Arnon Rodthong made the announcement through a Facebook post. One application that caught the attention of the netizens was that of 28-year-old Premyosapon Khongsai. Along with his picture, the young suitor posted:
‘I’m interested. I am 28 years old. My family also grows durian in Trat province. We have over 300 trees… I can weather the sun and the rain. I can drive a 10-wheel truck and tractor. Please consider me, father Arnon. Thank you.’
Though the lady liked the guy and called him cute but her father has other opinions. Arnon said that the suitor is too handsome. In his own words:
‘Premyosapon doesn’t pass for me because he is too handsome. He might break my daughter’s heart.’
Naturally, the netizens were quick to react. This is what they said:
