It sounds too good to be true to walk into an already made fortunes, a beautiful girl that has known no man, but that is exactly what the offers are for the man who would dare to take it.
All it requires is that the man must be able to work hard and be interested in the family business and a 26-year-old virgin and millions of dollar-worth business would be his.
The offer is coming from a Thailand-based fruit farmer Arnon Rodthong, the millionaire owner of a thriving durian farm in Chumphon province, who is looking for the right man for his youngest daughter, whose love life he has taken into his own hands.
Rodthong, 58, who took to the social media to personally scout for the right man for 26-year-old Karnista, is offering 10 million Thai baht (about $422,000 CAD) and the family run durian farm, which is worth several million dollars.
“If I wait for a son-in-law to come here and ask (to marry her), it will be too slow, so I’m asking for one right now,” Rodthong, was quoted by Thai news outlet Khaosod English, as saying.
For the offer on the young university graduate who speaks fluent English and Chinese, and is also a virgin, Rodthong said there are no restrictions on where the suitor comes from, except for the three requirements that the potential husband must be able to read and write; hard working and “stingy about money and loves durian.”
UK Mirror, quotes him as saying: “I want someone to take care of my business and make it last. I don’t want a person with a bachelor’s, or master’s or philosopher’s degree. I want a diligent man. I just want someone with a hard-working attitude. That’s all. As soon as I have an in-law, I will give up all my assets to him.”
Rodthong put out the call for suitors on Monday. By Tuesday hundreds of men reportedly applied to be his future son-in-law, according to the Strait Times.
The applicants will participate in a tournament to win Karnista’s heart that will be held in the province of Chantaburi on April 1. The potential suitors will be quizzed on their knowledge of the durian business.
Karnista said she was surprised by her father’s social media post and was only aware of it after a friend showed it to her. The single daughter told the Malay Mail she was “surprised but I can see the funny side of it too.”
“At first, I thought my dad was joking but it turns out he’s seriously looking for a son-in-law. My siblings and I respect the decision, adding, “I only want a man that I can bring to social events and take selfies with.”
