Sologamy! Italian Woman Marries Herself

An Italian woman, Laura Mesi, took a bold strange step and surprised the whole world when she organized a solo wedding and married herself.

Ms Mesi who claims to be the first Italian woman to join a worldwide trend for solo weddings said “happiness does not depend” on a man.

Marriage involving just one person is such that is hardly seen around the world but an Italian woman identified as Ms Laura Mesi, decided to thread that strange path.

According to BBC, the 40 year old lady insisted she could have a fairytale even without a prince. “I firmly believe that each of us must first of all love ourselves,” she said.

Her ‘marriage’ however, is not legally recognised.

She said her idea for a solo wedding came when a 12-year-relationship ended.


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

“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,” the BBC quoted her as saying.
