Woman falls in love with 'strong and sturdy' bridge and decides to marry it
They say there's someone for everyone out there and that we all have a special potential person in the world who will make us romantically fulfilled. But there are some people who don't want to meet someone; they want to hook up with something instead.
One of those people is Australian musician Jodi Rose. Jodi has a condition called object personification synaesthesia, which means that she associate objects with personalities and genders. In fact, she is so convinced that inanimate things have personalities, she's actually gotten herself married to a 14th-century bridge in the south of France.
And Jodi's isn't the first case like this! This woman was so in love with her duvet, she married it:
Jodie fell in love with the Le Pont du Diable Bridge (also known as the 'Devil's Bridge') after travelling to Europe for her music. She later married the bridge in an elaborate wedding ceremony in 2013.
She insists that she is very happy with her lot. In a recent interview with Australian news and current affairs show Sunday Night, Jodi stated:
"I was really quite nervous... I felt like a bride. I got to have my princess wedding day ... He is fixed, stable, rooted to the ground, while I am nomadic, transient, ever on the road. He gives me a safe haven, brings me back to ground myself, and then lets me go again to follow my own path, without trying to keep me tied down or in thrall to his needs or desires. I am devoted to him."
Jodi's passion involves travelling the world creating 'Singing Bridges' - a conceptual sound work using the cables of bridges as musical instruments, ABC News reports.
"He understands that I love other bridges – and men – ours is a love that embraces the vagaries of life, as materialised in the swirling currents of the river that flows beneath his magnificent body. The Devil’s Bridge is everything I could desire in a husband – sturdy, trustworthy, sensual, kind and handsome."
This isn't the first time we've covered this kind of romantic phenomenon. Check out this article we penned way back all about the woman who has apparently fallen deeply in love with a chandelier.
