This woman has only herself to blame if her latest marriage fails.
Beautiful Existence—a 42-year-old mother of two from Seattle who legally changed her name from Desiree Longabaugh—spent $7,000 to marry herself under the Eiffel Tower in Paris after going through a painful divorce 10 years ago.
"After years of exploring different theories on how to understand myself, self-marriage felt right," she told The Sun.
Existence said she always dreamed of tying the knot in Paris and decided she would have a small ceremony there last June — right around her birthday—complete with a photographer and three of her closest friends.
As her one-year anniversary with herself approaches, Existence is feeling happier than ever.
"I don't worry at all about being in a couple now," she said, adding that both her sons fully support her.
For now, self-marriages are not legally recognized, but she thinks that will change in the near future.
"There are a lot of people, women especially, who are not subscribing to the regular definition of marriage anymore," she said.
