Woman Can’t Find Decent Man, Decides To Marry Herself

Ever since my engagement ended, I’ve been kind of “meh” on marriage. Not because I haven’t found the “right” person yet, but because I’m just not sold on the whole institution anymore. Chen Wei-yih hasn’t met the right person yet either, but she’s not letting that little fact get in the way of her having the wedding of her dreams — the Taiwanese woman is marrying herself. “My work and experience are in good shape, but I haven’t found a partner, so what can I do?” Chen lamented to reporters. What she can do, apparently, is throw herself a lavish party, hire a photographer, and don a pretty white wedding gown, all to mark the marriage of Chen Wei-yih to Chen Wei-yih. which, naturally, won’t actually be recognized by law. “I’m not anti-marriage,” she says. “I just hope that I can express a different idea within the bounds of a tradition.” My only question: where did she register?

Girl Talk: I Unknowingly Bought My Own Engagement Ring

He brushed away my tears while citing his recurring symptoms and chemotherapy schedule. I added “strong” and “brave” to my mental checklist, along with “handsome,” “charming,” “funny,” and “sensitive.” Keep reading »

How I Escaped Polygamy

I pulled the curtain back from the living room window in my small adobe home and stared at the dirt road winding down the little hill into Los Molinos. In the three years I’d been married to Verlan, this was the longest he’d ever been away. How many times in the past four months had I stood here, pretending his silver pickup was on that road headed back to me? Dust would billow high as he drew closer and entered the colony. He would stop at Lucy’s place first, like he always did. He would unload mountains of supplies into the shed and tell the family there hello. Then he’d stop at three more wives’ homes. Just before coming to see me, he would go to Lillie’s house. Read more Keep reading »
