The woman who married herself ...
Like, Jennifer Hoes from The Netherlands married herself in 2003. "I married myself at the moment I was prepared to embrace my own life and agree on the responsibilities that come with that. I married myself at the age my father died, I decided not to stay in the shade of his death at thirty," she said in 2006 adding that she could still marry her partner if she found one and if she felt like getting married again. " I believe if a person is loyal to him- or herself, he or she has more to offer to others — to be active, straight and involved in relationships. Therefore, by no means, is marrying yourself is a self-centered act. In my wedding I needed my family and friends there as my witnesses and it was also a celebration of my relationships and intentions with them."
Following into Jennifer's steps, 30 year old Taiwanese woman Chen Wei Yih married herself last October.
Chen says she married herself cause she couldn't find a worthy partner. Her wedding cost $6,000 with 30 guests in attendance. Chen's marriage is not official, though, and she says she can still re-marry if she finds her Mr. Right some day
