I thought that girl was a little nutty, and I think this one is too.  Marriage is a commitment between two people.

I think if women can marry women and men can marry men, why discriminate against people who want to marry themselves, multiple people, or even their pet? Where does it end? Nowhere, because there is no moral basis.

@abbie017:  That’s not what some people in Utah believe, I think you’re being prejudiced against those men with sister wives.

I remember that poster. I think she was nuts, but I think the whole thing is crazy. I did feel sorry for her though, she had a lot of other issues that she needed to work on and some people were a little harsh.

Still, I agree marriage is for 2 people. You can still love yourself and be married.

I think it’s incredibly limiting, and a horrible decision.  Say you meet someone the very next day who ends up being the love of your life- are you going to end that relationship because you’re already married?  Divorce yourself?  

 

I get the symbolic meaning behind it but it’s so incredibly selfish to me.  We all can love ourselves without making such a big deal of it.

Can you really do that? I dont see how its possible. But her story was really sweet and if it makes her happy then thats all that matters.

If you love yourself and want to make sure you live a happy, healthy life – great. But when you need to tell everyone you love yourself and turn it into a spectacle, to me that seems like you’re suffering from something emotionally. If you’re happy, healthy, and love yourself, that will naturally show. Society doesn’t need to legally recognize your right to love yourself. So there’s no point in “marrying” yourself. Just love yourself and yourself will naturally appreciate it. Why try so hard to convince others you think you’re your number 1?

I don’t understand. Marriage is a covenant between two people. Why would you need to make a long lasting bond with yourself? I get celebrating significant milestones, but  “marrying yourself” doesn’t make sense to me. It defys the definition of marriage.

I don’t really get the point- we’re all kind of stuck with ourselves, anyway. I think there are healthier ways to celebrate personal acheivements.
