Correction: The story appeared in the UK Guardian, not the UK Independent. The audio version said UK Independent.
A woman in the UK has found her true love and she didn’t have to go far to find it. She just looked in the mirror. BreitBart and the UK Guardian reported that Grace Gelder, held a wedding ceremony where she married herself after a “journey of personal development” that included mediation, dance, performance and any other hippy activity you can imagine, to increase her “self-awareness.” Her friends felt the ceremony was kinda narcissistic, but in the age of social media, isn’t narcissism what it’s all about? This woman could be either an Instagram queen or would make a great politician. Isn’t self-centeredness and narcissism a part of the job description for politician? All I know is that things are gonna become really complicated and awkward when she divorces herself and has to give half of her stuff away to herself and starts dating other people. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
