An Italian woman has married herself in a very elaborate ceremony she organized for herself, after many years of searching for a husband.
The ceremony was pretty legit, with the white dress and shawl (I guess she’ll die a virgin now) and over 70 guests in attendance.
The woman, Laura messi, acted as the bride and groom in the ceremony.
When asked why she did this, she answered that ” Before we love someone else, we have to love ourselves”.
On a normal day, Italy does not accept such weddings but the wedding which is known as Sologamy is now getting popular in some small countries.
The people in support of the ceremony argue that it is important to love oneself and the society should accept them like that.
Laura added that the idea to go solo in marriage occurred to her when her last relationship ended 9 years ago.
“I told my family and friends that if i don’t find my soulmate when i’m 40, i’ll marry myself”, she said.
Ms Messi has revealed that she is the first Italian woman to do a solo wedding.
