A 78 year old Aussie man has met the woman
of his dreams- his Thai bride puts his socks
and undies on for him.
"My farang wife would never do that for me" said a beaming Ronald Arthur Dunn. "She does everything for me and she knows how to take care of me".
Ronald had just planted the biggest kiss of the day on the lips of his bride Nitaya Nonthasak, 53, a native of Udon.
The couple were one of hundreds at Bang Rak (the Borough of Love) in Bangkok yesterday to tie the knot for Valentine's Day.
Ronald and Nitaya met in Phuket three years ago when Ronald walked into a spa where his now wife was working. It was love at first sight and seeing as they were both now free of partners they decided later to get married.
Nitaya has quit her job at the spa and now helps Ronald at his dairy and sheep farm down under.
The Bang Rak authority - always inundated for this most special of days what with their auspicious name - had moved operations to the central post office building on Charoen Krung Road.
Among the couples were a handful of Thai and Western lovers. There was also a local policeman and his nurse wife from nearby Ramathibodi Hospital - both had taken a couple of hours off duty to get married.
