Now I've seen it all. Couldn't decide if this belonged in Romantic or Non-romantic Relationships. smh

Thanks for letting me know. The article I attempted to post (failing miserably) was about sologamy. Google it. It is a new trend where women (I don't know that men have picked up on it) opt for the single lifestyle, and marry themselves - complete with a no legally binding marriage ceremony. It is their statement that they "are enough," and don't need a partner to "complete them."

Apparently, the ceremony can be as elaborate as any traditional wedding. I couldn't figure out if this belonged in the relationship, or non-romantic relationship forum. It's kind of an oxymoron.

Sounds silly and very egotistical to me, but I think this falls under the category of "live and let live." (I do think, though, that I would decline if invited to such a ceremony and I would not send a gift or any kind of acknowledgment, unless it was a very close relative or a very good friend.)

Not for me, but each to their own.

At least they don't have to divorce themselves if ever they do want to marry legally.

If pretty much no one has heard of it, is it really a tremd? Seems just as dumb as MGTOW.

Oh yeah, I saw this on the news. Some pleased as punch 30-something woman in a white summer dress walking up some stairs to a balcony. Her friends were waiting with champagne. There was a ceremony and everything. She bought herself a ring.

It seems like an excuse to get attention to me, though I can image many people who heard about her plans were smiling while thinking, "What? Good grief!" or worse.
