Aff Taksaorn admits separated from Songkran over a year; Divorce not finalized
After taking some time to relax overseas, leading actress “Aff Taksaorn” has come back to Thailand. Eager fans and reporters alike can’t wait to hear the latest update on her divorce scandal. Let’s hear what she has to say
What was the problem?
A lot of things. It’s hard for me to say. But I want to tell everyone right now that no one wants this to happen in their life but it is to the point that one has no choice. You have to do what is best.
Was it a third hand like rumors circulate?
I will only answer about my part. I don’t want to think about the past. I want to focus on my child. Just thinking about raising a child by myself is a big task already. I don’t want to use my energy and emotion to think about anything else.
You’re labeling yourself as a single mom. Does that mean there is no returning to be a family again?
For me, it will never be the same again.
Does this mean the problem is that big?
Depends on the person’s perspective.
Songkran mention groveling. Did that work?
For me… everyday has to be truthful. I’m not thinking about anything more than doing the best each day. This is how the situation is now. I want to do what makes my daughter happy and make my life happy.
What is the reason not finalizing the divorce paper?
I really have no idea. (The grandfather forbid it?) That is his opinion and I understand.
Was there any compromise between you two?
To be at the point where I am now I am sure a lot of us experience this as well that we already did the best and try to work it out. This is why I am here now. Like I mention, no one wants this to happen.
Has there been a date set to finalize the divorce?
Have you talk to Songkran at all?
We normally talk because no matter what Khun Songkran is still the father of nong Peemai.
How do you explain to nong Peemai?
She does not ask all. That’s my honest truth. She is still too young. She still lives her typical life. Right now we live in Vibhavadi. Not at her grandpa’s house. Like I said we separated for a year now.
What is your agreement about the child?
We don’t talk about that yet. Like I said when she was born till now have always been me that raise her. So there is no splitting about that.
Are you still using the word husband and wife?
It depends on what you’re looking at. Legally we are but we are now separated. But in our daily life, I don’t know what people would call us.
How hard is it trying to live pass this whole situation?
It was difficult. I think women will understand me because it is not just about me. It is about our child too. There will be a lot of changes.
Who ask first for separation first?
I don’t know because a lot of things that happen came rushing in at the same time. I cannot pinpoint.
Grandpa gave an interview that you saw woman’s makeup at home and misunderstood?
That is what tan (formal word for addressing an elder) said. Not what I said. I cannot explain or speak on behalf for someone. I really can’t do that.
What did your family say?
They support me. Our future as wife and husband can no longer be the same. I don’t know if this is 100% decision but we are here now. I can’t really say what the main reason was.
Was it the lack of time together?
There is a lot of reasons. My family is my main support.
Did you cry?
It was a long time already. We been separated for a year. That time has long pass. I am emotionally good now. I believe as a mother, we don’t immerse with ourselves for long but we need to do what’s good for our kids physically and emotionally. In the past, I think there is good and bad. Now I still respect khun Songkran.
You are ready to sign the divorce paper?
You haven’t yet because Songkran won’t sign it?
I am not sure what the reason is but I am waiting right now. I don’t want it unresolved. But I understand from both side so let time takes its course. My entertainment job is like the same. I still want more time to care for my daughter. She is going full-time school already. So I will accept more work.
It is difficult to raise a child because it is no easy task but I can do it. It is my first child too. I love and try my best for her. I want her to have a good and happy life. It is not easy but it’s never impossible beyond our hand.
We haven’t talk about custody issue. I still see him because he is her father. We are her parents we have a role to do.
Do you still love Songkran?
Like I said before, we can no longer be the same. It is not the same anymore. My first support is from Peemai and family, friends and colleagues. Frankly speaking, even from you (reporters). (Voice shaking)
How do you plan to tell her?
I don’t think this is hard. I think she will understands. The most important is for her to grow up with love and warmth even though it might not be the same as others. It is a different way but if she receives love from us both there will be no problem. Right now she doesn’t ask anything because she’s still young.
