I'm curious about your, ladies and gentlemen in the foyer of this grand anime theatre, opinion on the topic of same-person marriage.

Despite what the misleading term implies, it is not about marrying exactly same person twice or more in the same period of time, but on marrying your own self.

There've been much debate in past decades on whether the same-sex marriage has a right to exist. Oneself marriage, however (also not known as same-self*, self-same, or just self-marriage) remains a problem largely uncovered, yet of much more current interest.

The matter is very simple. Person share common interests, life goals, ideals with themselves, have nurtured certain feelings between each-no-other and want to join one's and own destinies in the life-long union.

The seriousness of the relationship (if one had to convince, say, an immigration officer on marriage fraud interview), is evident. Take any person you know, watching them _at times_ you realize that only bonds of exceptional strength can make them stick together with themselves. And on the good side: look back at your life, remember what you've been through together with yourself, how shared literally all good and bad moments, dreams, goals, matching tastes and being 100% in sync with your mood "waves". That sense of partnerships, that lets you rest assured: you can throw yourself out of bed and into the cold night for the horror-movie-like stroll to 24x7 store and back just because you suddenly woke up at 3 am with burning desire for the chocolate, and that you won't bring it against yourself ever in the future... what else to say? Perhaps, that you _actually_ cannot live without yourself.

But when one attempts to bring this wonderful phenomenon to the next level, to declare it officially - suddenly it's impossible. Not a single precedent in some supposed-to-be-open-minded Europe or anywhere else, for that matter.

Some may argue that common-law marriage is sufficient. Let me disagree. First, it falls short in handling those earthly problems like not being allowed to stay with your own self in one hotel room, or demand from your employer to give you vacation in same time with yourself.

Next - even with all the obvious strength of ties in self-relationships (comparing to hetero-person ones) - as a responsible adult, one would want - if not for themselves, then at least for themselves - to secure themselves financially: to let self know it won't land on the street with nothing in case of self-divorce.

Religious ones would want to make their union proper by having wedding ceremony with self in church.

But all these daily issues could be coped with somehow, if only person with themselves could, indeed, openly tell the world, society, about their feelings, if they were not to conceal them as if forbidden.

So, what about social acceptance? I'll say only one thing here. Try to talk to yourself in public.

If you are still not convinced, please recall that you actually not allowed to even look at yourself, other than through reflection - in mirror or the shop window glass... like peeping at yourself!.. How humiliating! And how separating - the physics is a Montague and Capulet clans too.

Some, dispirited, try to change themselves, enter the "normal", non-self, marriage, and make all three - them, themselves and their partner - suffer, as one cannot deceive their own nature and time eventually shows: they clearly care about noone else but themselves alone!

Have a nice...


Yours sincerely,
Summer's elf, Marry J.

*same-self marriage may also refer to repeated marriage to same one out of all your multiple inner selves though

I'm impressed by how you can commit yourself to this kind of post. I dared to look it up, and it does appear you're not the first to use this idea. Nevertheless all contexts are about the same as here. Too much time, putting creativeness into fabrications that will be quickly forgotten. I don't know if that should be praised or pitied, either seems valid.

On a different note that would be on topic if this were a topic, marriage is a silly tradition rooted in religion. I can't imagine getting married. I can imagine spending the rest of my life with a person I love, and throwing a party to flaunt us being together, but getting ritualistic about it feels without meaning to me.

Marrying yourself? That sounds...sad and conceited. And I didn't even know you could.

That's called extreme narcissism which I guess if you're happy that way then fine but no, you don't legally marry yourself. With all the different types of sexuality out there you have to draw limits, I'm all for gay marriage but just look at this.

Object Sexuality - Falling in love with inanimate objects or things like trees
Bestiality - Falling in love and or having inter species sexual relations
Agalmatophilia - Falling in love with statues
Necrophilia - Loving dead bodies

Should we start letting these people have rights to marriage? Should you be allowed to marry your car, your parrot, Michelangelo's David, or a body from the morgue. I say no. Also, narcissists can be some pretty damaging people, I know.

Homosexuality, people just need to get over it. It's an act seen across several species of mammals, which humans are one, its a minority act but it's not abnormal so let it go.

I do find varying sexuality interesting though for the simple fact that all living things on earth share a similar genetic code. Whether you like it or not and no matter your religious belief this is scientific fact. Trees and Humans are distant relatives. Single celled organisms and humans are distant relatives. All humans living today are related to each other to a certain generation. That connection is fascinating and amazing at times, we all come from the same place and at the end of the day we're all made of star stuff. This is digressing a lot I know but I think it can explain where confusions come from in some people that do fall in love with objects or what not.

Well.. I guess I don't care if other people marry themselves. It doesn't affect me in any way. I'm not a person who would marry myself.

You are already married to yourself and if you want to be extra sure that you are, you can hold a ceremony and sign some papers.

If someone wishes to marry them self, I don't see why not.

I wouldn't care if they did, so long as they don't flaunt it like 'I really am perfect' and all that nonsense. Look, if someone told me they'd married themselves I'd probably be quite surprised for 2 or 3 seconds, followed by thinking 'do I really fucking care?' shrug it off, and continue life as normal. Though I do want to know what you'd achieve from marrying yourself. If you love yourself you love yourself, do you really need a certificate and all that sort of thing? Does that mean it's possible to divorce yourself as well? How would you leave yourself? It strikes me as silly, but if they want to do it I say leave them to it.

if you're too narcissistic to get married that's fine by me, but is's simply not possible to marry yourself. That would be like trying to glue a block of wood to the same block of wood. The block would just end up covered in glue. In other words you shouldn't use the word marriage because it is defined as a union between multiple people not one person and himself.

I almost married myself, but then I found out the bastard was cheating on me.

Yep, and the worst part about is is that I just looked at myself and said "I need to start seeing other people". No apologies or anything.

If I caught myself I think I would just try and give myself a hand. I figure it's only fair.
