Three men turned what could have been a love triangle into a marriage at an unusual group wedding in Chanthaburi.



Thanawat Pumthong, 30, Sanchai Subchan, 22, and Tinnapob Butwat, 24, tied the knot in the religious ceremony in Khlong Narai of Muang District Dec. 8.

The day began with alms offering.

While not legally recognized by Thailand, the marriage ceremony was attended by friends and family members who said they fully supported the three-way domestic partnership.


Thanawat, a nutritionist at a private hospital in Chanthaburi, said he started dating Sanchai seven years ago after seeing the dancer on Facebook. Later on, Sanchai introduced Thanawat to Tinnapob, a dancer he worked with, and the three of them began a group relationship.
