An extraordinary man has been found out to have had married as many as 120 wives before going on to have several children with them.
Polygamy is illegal in Thailand, but that didnât stop a modern-day Casanova from taking a whopping 120 wives and having 28 children with them. Whatâs even more unusual is that the women all know about each other and are fine with the arrangement.
Tambon Prasert, the head of Phromnee district, in Thailandâs Nakorn Nayok province, some 90 km Â from Bangkok, was recently forced to admit that he had illegally taken over 100 wives, after reporters were tipped off about it by anonymous sources.
The 58-year-old local politician and owner of a successful construction business, recently welcomed members of the media into his home to shed some light on his family life, after they traveled to Phromnee to confirm their leads.
Asked if it was true that he had more than 100 wives all across the country, Prasert matter-of-factly said âI have 120 wives and 28 sons and daughtersâ.
But one doesnât reach that impressive number of wives in just a few years. Prasert told reporters that he started very young, when he was just 17 years old.
âMy first marriage was when I was 17,â he recounted. âMy first wife was one or two years younger than me and we had three children. After that I had a string of others. Most of them were young women and they were all under 20. I donât like older ones â they argue too muchâ.
As he matured and opened his construction business, Tambon Prasert developed a very unusual habit â he would take a wife in every place he built a house.
âI am a building contractor, wherever I built a house I got a wife there,â he told Daily News. âI love them all â and they all love me.â
Whatever you may think of Prasert, he is a gentleman. Every time he took a new wife, he always informed her that he already had several, and would also tell the others that he planned to get married again. 22 of his wife live near his home in Phromnee district, while the others are based all around Thailand.
âI would say âI have a new wife OKâ â no one had a problem with that. They could all accept the situation and there were never any arguments,â the Thai polygamist said. âI respect them all. In every case I asked their parents for permission to wed according to customs and traditions. All were properly wed at organized ceremonies.â
Taking care of 120 wives and 28 children has never been a problem for Mr. Prasert, who has always provided his many families with everything they needed, even building houses for the wives that didnât have one.
âIf they didnât have their own house I would get them some land and sort everything out for them so everyone was happy,â he told reporters.
Interestingly, Tambon Prasertâs newest wife, 27-year-old Nam Fon, was right by his side during his interview with Thai media and didnât seemed at all shocked by his revelations. I guess he really does let his new wives know what they are getting into.
Itâs not yet clear if this real-life Casanova faces any legal consequences for practicing polygamy.
