A 49-year-old woman in London has tied the knot with … her cat.

Deborah Hodge has been forced to give up three pets — two Huskies and one cat — and she is refusing to do it again, according to the New York Post. To circumvent her landlord’s no-pet policy, the British woman has elevated her cat India from pet to spouse.

It was an un-fur-gettable occasion.

Deborah Hodge recently married her cat, India, in a loophole scheme to avoid rental restrictions, which have barred Hodge from bringing animals into the unit. catMarriage

Fed up, the 49-year-old woman from London devised a plan to marry her cat after already having rehomed three previous pets due to landlords who rejected pet owners from their properties. The single mom of two (humans) now hopes her show of commitment will prove to property owners that India is more than just an animal.

“She is fundamentally the most important thing in my life after my children,” she told South West News Service.

It was one wedding and a funeral.

A South African pastor is being excoriated online after filming himself proposing to a grieving woman in the middle of her father’s funeral — mere feet from the deceased’s coffin. Video of the proposal has over 278,000 views as critics accuse the man of making the somber occasion about himself.

“Proposing [to] the deceased’s daughter right at the funeral. Wiping the tears there and there,” reads the caption to the clip, which was uploaded a week ago by the fiancé — who goes by @M.Mojela on TikTok.

According to CEN, the pastor, who was presiding over the service, had asked for the woman’s hand in order to help heal her broken heart.

A Mexican couple has sparked fury after holding a Nazi-style wedding honoring Adolph Hitler.

Fernando and Josefina tied the knot at a church in the state of Tlaxcala – east of Mexico’s capital – on April 29, the anniversary of Hitler’s marriage to Eva Braun.

The German dictator committed suicide a day later in 1945.

Fernando and his three groomsmen wore replica suits of the Schutzstaffel, a paramilitary unit that served the Nazis – while Josefina wore a white gown.

‘If we had not found a mass for today, we would have gotten married next year,’ the groom told Mexican news outlet Milenio.

The themed wedding was condemned by Simon Wiesenthal Center in a statement.

She’s not real — but his feelings are.

A “fictosexual” man who wed a fictional, computer-synthesized pop singer four years ago said he’s now unable to communicate with his wife, but is still in love with her.

Akihiko Kondo, 38, was dating Hatsune Miku — depicted in pop culture as a 16-year-old with turquoise hair — for a decade before they had an unofficial wedding ceremony in 2018. Kondo — one of many who identifies as “fictosexual,” or someone who is sexually attracted to fictional characters — spent 2 million yen, or about $17,300, on the nuptials, but his family did not attend.

Now married for four years, Kondo, 38, said his relationship has hit a roadblock: He can no longer speak with Miku due to a technological hurdle, according to Japanese newspaper Mainichi.

Excerpts:

by Jonas Grinevičius and Austėja Akavickaitė

…A redditor shared how their parents were planning to use their wedding as a way to make bank.

See, they were planning to force their child to invite all of their distant relations and acquaintances so that everybody brings money as a gift.

That, in their parents’ opinion, is their way of getting back all the cash that they gave out at other people’s weddings, graduation parties, and other important events.

Naturally, the redditor confronted their parents when they realized that they have zero control over their own wedding.

In the face of AI exerts repeatedly predicting the rise of sex robots, it’s increasingly difficult to insist that such machines strictly belong to a far-off, dystopian future.

But some robotics experts predict we’ll soon be doing far more than having sexual intercourse with machines. Instead, we’ll be making love to them—with all the accompanying romantic feelings.

In July 2016, Irish woman Amanda Teague declared that she had married the undead spirit of Jack Teague, a 300-year old Haitian pirate she claims inspired the Pirates of the Caribbean movie series’ iconic Jack Sparrow.

Teague, who is a Jack Sparrow impersonator, announced the split on social media, writing, “So I feel it’s time to let everyone know that my marriage is over. I will explain all in due course but for now all I want to say is be very careful when dabbling in spirituality, it’s not something to mess with,” The Mirror reported.

Bride’s Wedding Shoot Becomes Tribute to Her Late Fiance After A Tragic Accident

Bride’s Wedding Shoot Becomes Tribute to Her Late Fiance After A Tragic Accident

Yep. Even if you do manage to get engaged (I was engaged once) or get married, this doesn’t mean it’s going to last a life time.

I have several examples on my blog (see bottom of this blog post under “Related Posts” section) of married people where one (or both!) get killed on their wedding day or shortly there-after, from being in car accidents to getting diseases. In some cases, one of the couple will die shortly before the wedding date.

….The only person missing from the long-planned ceremony was her groom, the love of her life, who had been killed by an alleged drunk driver last fall.

The wedding date had been set, the small town church with the white cross picked as the venue, and a fitted white wedding dress chosen during a rite-of-passage shopping trip with Padgett’s mother, grandmother, sister and her soon-to-be mother-in-law.

(Link): I me wed: why are more women choosing to marry themselves?

…Though solo ceremonies such as Tanner’s are unlikely to ever unseat the traditional union for two, they do seem to be on the rise; part of a much bigger social trend for women rejecting the traditional timeline of their mothers and grandmothers, and forging an independent path, worlds away from the ‘spinster’ stereotype.

“I think it’s hard not to adopt whatever society’s messages are … and I certainly think that one of the messages is, ‘You are not enough if you are not with someone else,’” Erika Anderson said of her decision to self-marry.

The 37-year-old, who lives in New York, wed her university sweetheart in her twenties but the pair split aged 30 after growing apart. Committing to herself, she said, was “an act of defiance.”

Self-Absorbed Man Hi-Jacks Wedding Ceremony

There goes the stereotypical evangelical Christian propaganda that the reason you’re still single past the age of 30 is because you’re still too (insert one or more: selfish, immoral, irresponsible, immature, ugly) to get a spouse, and God won’t send you one ’til you get your stuff together.

Forget that. The idiot in this following story was proposing marriage to someone…
