Today I ran an errand with my mother and heard a discussion about sologamy (marrying yourself). I have never heard this before. Do you see any point in this? Apparently a recommended gift is batteries. I can't tell you what went through my mind😈

It sounds like some people want a wedding, even without a marriage. It's beyond self indulgent.

Somewhere between silly and crazy. Should be normal in the US then.

I wonder what the insurance and tax ramifications are.

Ha ha love your wedding gift idea. No I don't see the sense in marrying ones own self. Narcissist should be your attending friend.

On occasion you will at least stop talking to yourself.

If I had sex with another human, would that be cheating? πŸ€”

American. The movement for this started in San Francisco, CA....the radio said.

Yeah that does seem like a Calafornia thing to do. Quite weird

Why do I think it's odd of why, what's the point of that it?

It's odd because it's not normal. Besides the fact that there's no point.

My friend once said he was a confirmed bachelor but he wanted to throw himself a wedding because he was jealous that every one else got a party where people brought them gifts and he felt he was entitled to one too.

I can only assume it's similar reasoning here.

Sounds like a fraternity gag.

05/15/17 3:51 pm

No, it's not a fraternity thing. I recently heard of this. Apparently, it's something that some women are doing. Kind of a"self-affirmation" thing. Pretty silly, in my opinion‼️

From RT's link:

“I would describe it as women saying yes to themselves,” Anderson said. “It means that we are enough, even if we are not partnered with someone else."

I heard this on the radio. "Sologamy". They have marriage ceremonies where they walk down the aisle and recite vows to themselves. Very very odd. I don't see the point. Just stay unmarried. Who cares?! I do realize I come from a very different culture though, so I wanted your input. Just curious.

I think it's ridiculous and a waste of money! I sure wouldn't buy a present for someone doing this!

That's just a strange concept. Seems a bit unnecessary.

That's what I thought. It would be sad to see a bride walk down the aisle and have no one there.

I had a teacher who was left at the alter in her younger years. I always felt so bad for her. Standing alone at the alter, even by choice, seems sad to me.
