Erika Anderson of Brooklyn has become the latest human being to wed themselves in a matrimonial dress and full ceremony, reports 100% Fed Up.
The bizarre, growing practice is known as “sologamy,” a play on words like “monogamy,” “polyamory” and “polygamy.”
But instead of dealing with relationships between people, as those words do, “sologamy” refers to a ceremony in which a person (usually a woman) speaks vows to themselves and is legally “married” – to theirs truly.
Anderson, 37, walked down the aisle in New York earlier this month, with no one waiting for her.
But in case you’re imagining some kind of sexy self-love honeymoon that would fit in a Cinemax late-night movie, think again.
The practice of “sologamy” is based on a feminist slogan of “saying yes to women,” and does not involve (thankfully) anyone attempting to pick up and carry themselves to bed. In fact, sologamists are not taken off the market for actual marriage.
“I’m dating, and open to marrying another person also,” Anderson told a reporter.
