They might surprise me, but I can’t picture the comments being terribly “JOOOO!”-y:
Except marrying yourself isn’t just “a black thing”: self-marriages were celebrated by a Dutch woman in 2003, a female from Taipei in 2010, a white chick in North Dakota two years later, and a British lady last fall.
That’s hardly the critical mass required to qualify as a genuine trend, but since when has that stopped social scientists and other hucksters? Some are clearly hoping to turn “self” into the new “gay” as far as marriage goes. They’ve got the requisite clumsy neologism—“sologamy”—and they just need the lucrative movement to go with it.
Visit SelfMarriageCeremonies.com and sign up for their $200 “self-study program.” This “10-Week Initiation into Sacred Union”—strictly speaking, shouldn’t that be “Oneness”?—invites you to “walk down the aisle of your own heart and meet yourself unveiled.”
