What is the reality for dual citizenship for Thais? Can a Thai female that is married to a US male carry both US and Thai passports?

In Thailand, there is no direct provision stating that Thai Woman who marry to the foreigner shall relinquish Thai National. There is only a provision Section 13 of the National Act, stating that Thai woman who wants to relinquish Thai national is able to submit her intention to the Authorized officer. Therefore, in this case, if the Thai woman does not declare her intention to relinquish her Thai national and does not commit any wrongful act causing her to lose her Thai national then in technical she is able to hold dual citizenship.
