With this ring I me wed

If a woman can marry another woman, why shouldn’t a woman by able to marry herself? Once you start tinkering with the definition of marriage, there’s no clear bright line at which you have to stop.

“I feel very empowered,” said Nadien Schweigert after she pledged lifelong devotion to herself. The ceremony, she said, was “a form of accountability.” Exactly. The witnesses now know that she is committed to treating herself well.

Which is reassuring, because a divorce would be messy.
