Self-marriage as a proclamation of commitment to making oneself happy.
Following, or not, a divorce. Preceding, or not, an actual marriage to an actual spouse.
“In front of friends and family.”
It didn’t say anything about making solemn vows before someone authorized to perform marriages. Which means all it is, is a narcissistic woman, or a hundred thousand narcissists (there were no men marrying themselves in this story) making a narcissistic spectacle of herself/themselves in front of onlookers.
All it is, is yet another display of “I’m all that and you’re not”. It says “I don’t need anybody to make me happy”. Yeah, but sweetie, it also says that you don’t need to make anyone happy either…
No consequences whatsoever. Nothing for the Census Bureau to worry about. Nothing for the taxman to raise an eyebrow at. Certainly nothing for the Insurance companies to clear their throats for.
I’m thinking a self-married person would absolutely have to have a last will and testament. Otherwise, the estate goes to the surviving spouse. Which means that the house would have to be imploded, and the car scrapped and the remains buried with.
Yes, narcissism is this far-reaching, alas. How much more self-loving can one get than marrying oneself?
Why is it, though, that one of these women married herself, then married her boyfriend after? Is it that she cheated on herself? I have to say that if I were the BF, I would wonder about that…Every time he jumps her, she’s cheating on herself. Wow! I’m guessing this guy finds it to be a turn-on doing a girl who cheats on herself…She did say she’s not divorcing herself…So, wait a second, do her sex toys get to be called by her last name?
And to be marrying oneself in front of family and friends is the ultimate in loneliness.
Buy a parrot! Or any pet of your choice. Oy!
I am so, so ashamed of my gender for doing this and being proud of it.
