Most people may think that marriage is only about two lovebirds staring into one another’s eyes whilst they say their ‘I dos’. However, not everyone thinks this way, and some people decide to take a rather different approach to walking down that aisle in Marriage. Check out some of the weird THINGS that people have married…prepare to be shocked.
Meet the guy who married his PILLOW
Lee Jin-gyu fell in love with his “dakimakura,” which is a very huggable pillow, so decided to marry it. As you do. It even has an image of Fate Testarossa, from the ‘magical girl’ anime series Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha on the side. Apparently Lee takes his other half to the funfair and out for meals.
This woman married the Eiffel Tower
She’ll now be forever known as the woman that tied the knot with the famous Parisian landmark, but she likes to go by the name ‘Erika La Tour Eiffel’ – she’s even legally changed her name to this. She suffers from Objectum Sexuality, where individuals develop feelings of love and attraction to inanimate objects – so we guess that explains it a little then.
This woman married a real-life cobra
The thought of this actually terrifies us – Bimbala Das didn’t marry any ordinary snake, but an actual COBRA. She claims that it always came out to drink milk with her, so tied the knot with the animal in front of nearly 2,000 people in 2006.
This Woman married a male dolphin
Back in 2005, Sharon Tendler actually got married to a 35-year-old male dolphin called Cindy, who has since sadly passed away. “I’m the happiest girl on Earth,” the bride said at the time. “I made a dream come true, and I am not a pervert.” This makes us kind of sad, in the weirdest way.
This man married a corpse
This is rather depressing, but still true. Back in 2012, Deff Yingyuen, a Thai television director, married his girlfriend of 10 years, Sarinya “Anne” Kamsook. He wanted to make his other half’s dreams come true.
This man married himself
Talk about being in love with yourself! In 2007 Liu Ye married himself, claiming that the main reason behind the wedding was “mainly to express my dissatisfaction with reality.”
