We have many definitions of what love is. No matter how we describe or define it, it always goes back to the word unconditional. Just like the story of this beautiful girl proudly marries an older man with a facial deformity.
Deny or not, every woman is dreaming of having a prince charming. They described it as good-looking, good posture, seemingly perfect just like what we most read and watch on fairy tales. We always look forward to meeting a handsome or a hot quarterback.
But physical appearance doesn’t really matter with this Thai lady. For this 23-year-old Phatsara Obnak, true love goes beyond looks. He recently tied the knot with the 37-year-old Boonmee Khanthong with obvious facial deformity.
According to Thai News Agency, the couple had their simple wedding ceremony in his village in northeastern Surin province, Thailand. Speaking in an interview, Boonmee Khanthong revealed that he suffered from broken capillaries on his face when he was young.
He traveled at Siriraj hospital in Bangkok several times for treatment but no avail. His family couldn’t afford the funds to stay in Bangkok and continue his treatment. Boonmee Khanthong who only finished grade 5 has a hard time to work at factories because they said he could not speak properly. However, his friend Mr. Virat Saothong, 35, who is a contractor in Bangkok, gave him a job.
When he is not working, he goes down to the southern Hat Yai city to help his sister sell papaya salad. That’s when he met and fell in love with his beautiful wife, Phatsara.
Phatsara said that she loves her new husband so much because he takes such good care of her and her daughter from a previous marriage and will always do so.
Their story only proves that love goes beyond physical appearance and it should not be a basis of love. There are so much beautiful and amazing things in this world, far beyond what our eyes can only see. Love always make things beautiful!
