2 Thai men marry in Queensland under new law

TWO THAI MEN were among the first same-sex couples in Queensland to get married following passage of Australia’s historic marriage equality bill.

While many Australian same-sex couples chose to celebrate New Year’s 2018 by getting married, Jarrukit Somjich,37, from Chiang Rai and Kiticha Srijad, 49, from Pathum Thani wed right after the bill passed in December last year.

“We planned a long time ago to get married and had sent invitations to friends and family to come and help celebrate a traditional Thai wedding theme, and we did it on December 17, 2017,” said Jarrukit, who has lived in Brisbane for eight years and owns a massage shop. “We didn’t really know if the bill was going to pass or not,” he explained.

“I thank all the Australian people who have fought [for] and have been very active pushing for this bill to pass. It has been hard-fought and I thank Australia for the opportunity to equalise marriage. Love is love and it should be equal to all.” When asked what the bill means to the couple, Kiticha, who has lived in Brisbane for 18 years and works at a Thai restaurant, said that it is a good to see that Australian society is very open, accepting and very multicultural.

The bill is another important change to confirm how Australia believes in its people’s values, he said.

“The bill is an important change to not only let a husband love his husband but a wife to love her wife and they can share their lives till death do them part,” said Kiticha. “It shows we have come a long way and we couldn’t be happier.”

Jarrukit and Kiticha were the first same-sex couple to be married at Queensland’s Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages (RBDM) since the passing of the Marriage Equality law last month. Acting Premier of Queensland Jackie Trad congratulated the pair on their special day – one that would be etched in Queensland’s history.

“This is a fantastic and historic day, not only for this couple, but for Queensland,” Trad said.

    For every Thai male couple that marry in Oz it’s an extra two hot young lasses available here for red blooded men. All you complainers should buy an Australian a beer at the first opportunity.

    • JACK

      Foster’s lager, as we know it in Britain’s pubs and supermarkets, is an Australian brand; it is not an Australian beer. “Australian for lager” it may claim to be, but 1.2bn pints of the amber nectar a year are brewed in Manchester UK, not Melbourne.

      • Charles Baht Esquire.

        According to my new found buddies the Aussies fosters larger they booted out years ago it was so foul only place fitting for it and only drunkards that would drink it was the meat head English they would swill and swirl anything marked beer on a bottle .,

        • Ricksanchez

          Fosters is pure unfiltered pi$$. The no taste brainless rapists on the rock love it.

          • Charles Baht Esquire.

            I’ve always thought it was something in the water over there on the parsnip rock but was something in the beer all along .

    • JACK

      All Aussie beer in Eurozone (and Thailand)are brewed in the UK

    • Charles Baht Esquire.

      What but one of your lousy cheap skate cheap Charlie Chang beers even then you tight asz Poms would buy it from 7-11 to save 3 baht .

    • JACK
