Forget same-sex marriage; now it's same-person marriage
( 2003-08-19 17:15) (Agencies)

Perhaps you think you've seen everything. Alas, no. Apparently the new trend is people marrying ... themselves!

We wrote jokingly a few weeks ago that Canada was being narrow-minded for limiting marriage to two people. Unfair to bigamists, doncha know. Also unfair, it turns out, to those who really, really, really like themselves.

The local Palm Beach Post, in a lengthy article dominating the front of the features section, gushes that one Jeannie Macaluso is marrying herself.

She has a wedding gown, bridesmaids, 50 guests, two showers and all the trappings except a groom. The only other thing missing is her father; she's tearful that he'll have nothing to do with her "wedding."

According to the Post, the stunt is mostly an excuse for the spinster "bride" to furnish her new kitchen by scoring payback for all those wedding gifts she's doled out over the years.

Well, at least there can't be a divorce. Or will some lawyer be able to figure out that little glitch?
