Marrying Myself

There was a headline of an Italian bride marrying herself two weeks ago. I didn’t click on the headline the evening that I saw it but it did catch my attention and the headline lingered in my mind that it led me to look up articles about the bride, whose name was Laura Mesi, two days ago. That article led me to another story about another woman, a British national named Sophie Tanner, to marry herself after having gone through years of mistreatment and bad dates.

From those articles, I learned of the word ‘sologamy’: marriage to self.
