Yatika 1996 (Thailand), also known as Relatives, Ya Ti Ka is Thailand drama premiere on Jan 12, 1996 on Channel 7
Paworn falls for a merchant's daughter, Nuan. Nuan's father refuses to let them marry, claiming that no man can take care of his daughter as good as him. Paworn decides to take Nuan away (with his parent's permission and with the help of Nuan's mother) to live with him as he goes to work in Songkhla. After Nuan gives birth to a daughter, Poung, her father comes to tell her to come back to him but she refuses. She then vows to make enough money to surpass or equal to the money her father can provide for her and she decides to go into the business of making desserts. She gives birth to another daughter, Soithong and she works herself to the point of illness. She then dies and Paworn sends his children to live with his parents after his grandmother forces him to have another wife.
Soithong is a rebel and she grows up to be an independent thinker and rebellious for a girl of that time period. She catches the eye of Chawan who falls in love with her at first sight. Chawan’s mother wants to find him a wife and coincidentally from Soi’s household. Chawan finds out that Soi is the girl he is supposed to meet and immediately agrees. Soi hates the fact that she has to be forced to do things and yearns for the day that women choose their own husbands. She vows to never love Chawan. They get married and Chawan is filled with affection for Soi, but she is annoyed and always pushing him away.
Chawan and Soithong have a son named Chawala. He falls in love with Mankaew, a traditional dancer, but her father doesn't want his daughter to marry a Thai man.
