Only in America

By Expatmum @tonihargis
I get used to all the crazy antics in the USA, having lived here for 22 years. Besides, the mother country isn't too far behind now, with personal injury litigation on the rise, toddlers dressed up as miniature prostitutes, and obesity gaining ground.
This, however, just made me shake my head in disbelief. - "Self-marriage".  No, no, not do-it-yourself marriage, but "self-marriage".  Here, have a look.
Apparently the woman, who went through a painful divorce six years ago, married herself, - ceremony, guests and the whole shebang, - to affirm how well she feels these days, and how much she loves herself. I get that. I haven't been through a divorce, and I can't even imagine how shattering it must be. It's also very important to get back to a state where you do indeed like yourself. That's to be encouraged and applauded.
But how many divorcees take themselves on "dates" to treat themselves and "to invest in the  relationship"? (OK, you might do things to make yourself feel better, but would you call it a "self-date"?)
So come on Britain. Jump on this bandwagon if you dare!
