Narcissist, self-centered, egotistical, self-absorbed… those are some words that may come to mind for people who like themselves too much.
But what if you love yourself so much that you can’t find anyone to be your perfect soulmate? Well, except by looking in the mirror. And then it dawns on you, what if you could marry yourself?
Yes, it’s actually a thing. The practice has been coined “sologamy” and people are taking it seriously.
I used to follow along with society and listen to all the things I was taught. Like grow up get married and have children. But the more I think about it the more I realize I really don't want anyone relying on me for their well being and I really enjoy doing everything for myself. I have experienced many different types of relationships and the one I have enjoyed the most and gotten the most success out of has been the relationship with myself. It's nice to be at the point in your life when you can make yourself happy and you don't need anybody else for anything. I'm not knocking anyone's lifestyle, if you need a relationship for fulfillment (like i once did) then pursue it. Relationships, engagements, weddings, childbirth, baby showers, wedding showers, Etc these are all structures that increase revenue for the government. People can spend their money on whatever they choose to, so if you enjoy investing in these celebrations and holidays then by all means go for it. However me personally I am not buying into the institution that Society has placed on us. #selflove #sologamy #SelfSufficient #SelfActualized #enlightenment

The internet however, is having a field day with the topic, mostly criticizing and poking fun at the practice…

If you self-marry do you have to divorce yourself if you meet someone you want to marry? If not, is it considered polygamy? #sologamy

Some people are tweeting that they are OK with the practice:
Most of the time, I find being alone is more ideal. 💚 #sologamy
