May 25, 2012 – Woman Marries Herself – I Don’t Need A Husband To Be Happy

This bizarre case of self marriage is rapidly increasing in today’s society
The woman above claims she doesn’t need a man to complete her.
She said it’s about committing to changing her life.

The 36-year old woman who hails from Fargo in North Dakota married herself just last month claiming she doesn’t need a man to be happy.

Nadine Schweigert who stood up in front of the 45 guests at her wedding, she took the following vow: “I, Nadine promise to enjoy inhabiting my own life and to relish a lifelong love affair with my beautiful self.

Later in the ceremony, she presented herself with a ring. When it was time for the traditional first kiss, she asked guests to blow kisses to the whole world. Soon after the ceremony, Nadine even took off on a honeymoon at New Orleans, all by herself, of course.

Nadine says that after three children and a divorce, she spent several years just waiting for someone to come along and make her happy. She has struggled for years with self-acceptance, attending group therapy in an attempt to feel better. One day, when a friend said to her, “Why do you need someone to marry you to be happy? Marry yourself,” the idea took root in Nadine’s mind.

At first her friends thought that it was too weird for her to be marrying herself. Her 11-year-old son refused to come if she went through with it.

But a few months later, she just knew that she had to do it. This time, her friends and her son supported her wish. Her parents also attended the ceremony, even though they had never heard of self-marriage before

The Concept Of Self Marriage

Self-marriage can be a confusing concept to those who don’t know what it’s all about. Nadine isn’t alone, however, many others have done it before. It was even portrayed on the popular TV show Glee, where ‘Sue Sylvester’ ties the knot with herself.

These ceremonies are considered secular and purely symbolic. New Age websites such as Encouraging Priestess even share ideas on how to perform self-marriage ceremonies. The idea behind these marriages is to help a person realize that they do not need anybody else to feel complete.

I love the idea of not needing a man to be happy however, the self marriage concept is a bit odd.

    Its outrightly unbelievable!!! Ow can a woman marry herself? It doesn,t make any sense bcos marriage involves 2people & not one person (according 2d law) as far as am concerned, wat she performed was not marriage.. If she wanted 2remain as a single lady..why not?? But performing a presposterous ceremony in d name of “marriage” doesn’t make any iota of sense @all!!!

    i think the idea of self marriage is more of a symbolic thing. It entails self acceptance and the ability to live a happy and fulfilled life regardless of your marital status.

    This is turning things upside down and it is instigated by satan. anyone involved in this self marriage of a thing is doing the devil’s bidding. God said “it is not good for a man(woman) to be alone”. This negates God’s way and the unwary will fall into this trap, selling their soul and life to the devil. If you don’t have a spouse or relationship to make you happy, you need God. When you set God aside, you are in for a frustrating life.
