40 Year Old Italian Woman Marries Herself

An Italian woman on Monday tied the knot with herself in a lavish ceremony complete with white dress, three-layer wedding cake, bridesmaids and 70 guests.

According to the couple, identified as a 40-year-old fitness trainer, Laura Mesi, she did it to show to others to love themselves..

She said;

“I firmly believe that each of us must first of all love ourselves,”

“You can have a fairytale even without the prince.”

The ceremony carries no legal weight.

But Ms Mesi is part of a growing trend for self-marriage – dubbed “sologamy” – in countries around the world.

Proponents of such ceremonies say it is about self-love and acceptance, and claiming the social affirmation normally reserved for couples who wed.

Laura says the idea of a solo wedding came to her two years ago, after a 12-year relationship ended.

She told La Repubblica newspaper;

“I told friends and family that if I had not found my soul-mate by my 40th birthday I would marry myself,”

“If one day I find a man with whom I can plan a future I’ll be happy, but my happiness does not depend on him.”

Ms Mesi says she is the first Italian woman to hold a solo ceremony. In May, a man, Nello Ruggiero, said “yes” to himself in a ceremony in Naples.
