In the messed up world of modern marriage, there’s a new thing called sologamy. According to Wikipedia, sologamy is, “Self-marriage – marriage by a person to oneself. It is known as a commitment that values self-love, and self-compassion. Supporters of the practice argue that it leads to a happier life.”

Call me a cynic, but I doubt this happiness claim. In fact, it seems like the saddest trend I’ve ever heard of in my life. Instead of “I thee wed,” do the vows say “I me wed?”

One 38 year old woman, Sophie Tanner, explains how she had this idea:

“I literally had the idea when I was lying in bed recovering from flu and a bad relationship,” she remembers. “Everyone celebrates getting together with someone and becoming married, but there’s no milestone in society that celebrates escaping something awful or returning to your own happiness and contentment.”

Yeah, the reason why we don’t celebrate you is because we don’t want to put a stamp of approval on your nutty sense of marriage.  But as weird as this trend is, there’s something even stranger.  Tanner, who “married herself” admits that she feels guilt after “cheating on herself.”

Um….?  Here’s the “news” article reporting on this incident:

Sophie Tanner, who tied the knot with herself in May 2015, revealed to host Amanda Holden that she had cheated on herself with Ruari Barrett, a polyamorist who is now also married to himself, reports The Sun.

Richard Dawkins wasn’t convinced about the practice: Self-marriage: a narcissist’s dream… Then there’s threesome marriage. Or why not marry your dog?”

Exactly.  These people who flout traditional conventions, probably mock the church’s celibacy requirement before marriage, too.  Yeah, the church is super weird, but marrying yourself isn’t?

Liberalism is beginning to look more and more like a mental disorder.

If you really have courage, watch the “wedding video” of Sophie Tanner by clicking continue.  Warning: this video contains very bad dancing, self-congratulatory wedding vows, and friends who really should’ve stopped this from happening:
