I support all forms of self-love, but Nadine, the”Anderson” guest who married herself, makes me feel uncomfortable. If you’re really owning that you’re responsible for your own happiness and committed to finding everything you need within yourself, there’s no need for a public ceremony to prove it. There are other less ostentatious ways to celebrate self-growth and self-acceptance. I think being truly comfortable with yourself means it not being such a big issue in your day-to-day existence. Nadine still seems raw about her past issues — she tears up while talking about them. Her self-marriage seems more like a band-aid on an open wound than a celebration. I’m sorry, but this reeks of attention-whoredom to me, as Anderson Cooper seems to insinuate.
I don’t know, maybe I’m just being harsh and Nadine is happily betrothed to herself. Below you can watch a clip of her on a date night with herself and see what you think. She takes her wife/self for Indian buffet and a bubble bath. At least she doesn’t have to worry about how her wife will feel about the gas she will most definitely have. Ah, marriage. [Buzzfeed]
