This seems to be a stupid question but do you ever thought is it possible to marry yourself?
Is it even legal to marry yourself in India?
There are a billion people out there who would agree that they don’t need a partner for whatever reason you could think of, but would you go as far as marrying yourself to prove your point? There’s a new relationship trend called sologamy on the rise and as incredulous as it all sounds, we would simply call this a fad followed by feminists who are tired of people asking them to find someone and/or get married.
Erika Anderson, a 37-year-old from New York is a proud sologamist. According to a report in WUSA, Anderson said, “I would describe it as women saying yes to themselves. It means that we are enough, even if we are not partnered with someone else.”
What Is Sologamy?
Sologamy, or self-marriage, is a symbolic ceremony where you commit to maintaining a meaningful, deep, and loving relationship with yourself.
According to La Repubblica, the 40-year-old fitness trainer from Italy had told her family that if she didn’t find “the one” by the time she turns 40, she would marry herself. When she did turn 40 without having found her soulmate, Mesi organized the self-marriage ceremony for herself. The ceremony was attended by 70 family and friends, who watched her say ” I do” to herself. With this, she became the first Italian woman to marry herself–even though the ceremony is not legally recognized in the country.
Is Sologamy Legal?
A self-marriage ceremony is gestural and not legally binding. There are no tax breaks and you won’t have to change your marital status on any legal documents. There is no paperwork involved and since it has no merit in the eyes of the law, you won’t be committing bigamy if you have a wedding (with somebody else) in the future.
