Financial Lovemaking: A woman says she’s going to marry herself?

Financial Lovemaking: A woman says she’s going to marry herself?

What does it mean for someone to say that she’s going to marry herself? A woman on Texas says that this is what she did this week.

Yasmin Eleby’s wedding ceremony was impeccably planned down to the last detail. Ten bridesmaids, an elegant candlelight ceremony and a three-tiered wedding cake that was a work of culinary art. Everything a girl dreams of on her wedding day—EXCEPT NO GROOM!

No, the groom didn’t change his mind on their wedding day and leave her at the altar; there never was an intended. Eleby says she promised herself that if she hadn’t found a mate by the magic age of 40, she would marry herself.

Eleby’s momentary lapse of common sense apparently stemmed from something in the drinking water in Houston Texas, because it also to spread to her family. The minister, her sister, helped Eleby to say her vows. Eleby says it was actually just a spiritual ceremony because it is illegal to marry yourself in any state in this country.
