The man, who is a durian farmer, said that ideally, he wanted his daughter's husband to be capable of handling the family business.
"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. That's all. As soon as I have an in-law, I will give up all my assets to him," he said.
Rodthong's daughter is a pretty lady and a university graduate who, according to her father, speaks fluent English and Chinese.
Reacting to the possibility of an arranged marriage, Karnsita said that she "was surprised" but she could "see the funny side to it."
Following the reports about Arnon Rodthong's deal, numerous candidates for the role of Karnsita's husband reacted to it on social media, insisting that the millionaire and his daughter must pay attention to them.
