Epitome Of Self Love: 40 Year Old Woman Marries Herself

Too much I take myself to be my lawfully wedded wife?

Yasmin Eleby promised herself that if she turns 40 has not yet found a partner willing to marry her she will marry herself and that she did. Black Art In America: The Huston native chose to have one of her sisters who is also a minster, help her say vows, in a spiritual ceremony – because you can’t legally marry yourself in America.

We wonder if she will divorce herself when she finds a man willing to marry her, each to their own, they say.
