WTF: Woman Marries Herself

I have heard of self love but never enough to make someone actually walk down the aisle...with themself (though a few guys I have dated could definitely be candidates for it).

Today Metro UK, an online news site, reported that Chen Wei-Yih, a 30 year old woman in Taiwan will marry herself. She has rented a banquet, hired a wedding planner and has even posted pre-wedding pictures in her $5675 dollar wedding dress to her Facebook page. And then had to face up to 1800 comments from people asking what she was doing.

So what's the back story? Like many 30 year old women, Chen was catching heat for her single status from family and friends. But instead of rushing down the aisle with a guy she was lukewarm about she decided to marry someone she really loves--herself. When asked about her bold decision, she has told reporters the following "It's not that I'm anti-marriage. I just hope that I can express a different idea within the bounds of a tradition." Her quote actually sounds pretty enlightened. Well at least she won't catch any sh*t for wearing white! Seriously though, what do we think? Is marrying yourself an I "do" or "don't?"
