Back in October, Opps magazine asked several Thai stars the marriage and baby question, at what age do they believe they will be ready to settle down and have babies. Their answers will surprise you because it got me laughing, especially Chakrit, who said he wanted to get married at the tender age of 15 because he wanted to be a father. However, things did not turn out as he wanted to. Good thing guy, 15 is a little young.
At what age will you be ready for marriage? “I think around age 30. The cause to decide to get marry would be if it is suitable. You would look at your life before marriage, do we match?
What about having kids? “After getting married, you can have them. I have no problems with that.”–pretty much a honeymoon baby.
Obnoxious guy “Tack” Paranyoo Rodjanawuttitham
At what age will you be ready for marriage? “It would have to be 35, around there is good, because if you add them together you get the number 8 (laughs). It’s a good number in the practice of geomancy.”
What about having kids? “It’s not important whether I have children before or after marriage. If I had a child before I got married, it would be a good thing. He/she/It will know that we loved each other that is why we had a child. To be a young father, it’s cute.”
At what age will you be ready for marriage? “Around 35. If 40, it would be too old (laughs). Personally, there is nothing more important than what you feel. As for having a house and a car, it’s just an external necessity of life, thus if our heart is ready, we should marry.”
What about having kids? “As for myself, I love kids. If I have, then I have. If I don’t have (kids), it’s okay. Being a superstar won’t affect my personal life of having a family. I think I’ll probably be like everyone else in this world, when that time comes, I’ll have them.”
At what age will you be ready for marriage? “The truth is that I wanted to get married at the age of 15 because I wanted to have children. I’m a person who likes children. In the past, I was ready once. But in the end, it didn’t work out. Maybe it wasn’t the right time for it yet. Most likely, you have to give yourself time to learn if you are ready or not to share your life with another person.”
What about having kids? “Like I said, I love kids. I want them now, soon.”–then he said something I didn’t quite understand, so I didn’t translate it.
“Tono” Pakin Kumvilaisak
At what age will you be ready for marriage? “Around 30, but honestly I wanted to get marry by the age of 24 (laughs). I wanted kids. I’m a person who likes children.”
What about having kids? “Regarding having kids before or after marriage, it would all have to do with readiness. Now if you’re not ready and the child is born, regardless you have to take responsibility.”
‘Stefan’ Tasit Sinkanawiwat
At what age will you be ready for marriage? “37 years old. You have to have time for yourself first. Until that day, you have to work to earn money to have stability in your life.”
What about having kids? “Having kids, I don’t want any na because I want to take care of my parents more so. Having kids deals with the relationship of the woman and the man, its very natural. To have before or after, when ready or when not ready, it’s up to you whether you can accept it or not.”
Dome Pakorn Lum
At what age will you be ready for marriage? “If I was a regular person, I would have been married by now (laughs). Since I am working in the ET industry, I have to meet with a lot of workers, have many various responsibilities, it has cause my number to be extended. Lets just say, not beyond 36. By then, I would marry.
What about having kids? “If I got married, that would mean I want kids by then. When my child is older, I want to travel with him/her, it would be very joyous.”
Lydia Sarunrat Visutthithada
At what age will you be ready for marriage? “30 years old, because I’m scared beyond 30 it would be too old.”
What about having kids? “Any age if you are ready. Before 30 would be better than after 30 because it might be difficult to have them.”
“Pancake” Khemmanid Jamikorn
At what age will you be ready for marriage? “40 (laughs). Just kidding. Around closer to 30 would be better. Mostly like a time when one is fulfilled in their work and their life is reasonably, then they should think about starting a family.”
What about having kids? “Right now, I don’t want to think about it. I’m scared (laughs). I love the role of being a child and having a mother take care of you.”
At what age will you be ready for marriage? “I want to get marry when I’m 31 because the number 3 is a secure number. Personally, being ready is when we have mutual understanding. Right now, the components of having a married life, I have entirely. I’m just missing a partner.”
What about having kids? “I want to have them when I’m young. When I’m still active. Then I still go shopping with my child.”
At what age will you be ready for marriage? “Not beyond 36, when everything is set in place. Right now, I have not met the one. I once thought I found the right person, but in the end, he wasn’t. Right now, I’m giving more times to other things. I’m not in a rush.”
What about having kids? “My mother had me when she was 36. I want kids not beyond that because I want to be a young mom, like P’Bow Chayada, P’Pin, something like that, they can still ‘hey hey’ with their kids. It looks cute.”
At what age will you be ready for marriage? “Mine will never be everlasting. I don’t like marriages. Anyone who can make me believe in marriage, that person is talented.”
What about having kids? “This is difficult. To wed, to have before would be better (laughs).”
