Feeling the Pressure to Get Married? Marry Yourself!

Few women get more than a few years into adulthood without feeling some outside pressure to get married – especially if they have serious significant others. So what’s a gal who’s feeling the pressure but doesn’t have marriage on her mind? Chen Wei-Yi of Taiwan took a stand against the pressure to get married by staging a most unusual wedding. Who did she marry? She married herself. Her wacky wedding was a response to the government’s recent campaign to encourage marriage and parenthood to boost the island’s very low birthrate.

Maybe it’s not entirely appropriate, but I hope you’ll join me in wishing Chen Wei-Yi hearty congratulations and lots of happiness!
