Sologamy... What If It Doesn't Work Out?

I may lose friends over this, or perhaps they'll simply allow me my opinion and either agree or disagree. Either way – I feel compelled to say something about the latest ridiculous trend in the US (and the world?).

That new “trend,” as they call it, is called Sologamy. That's a manufactured term for a manufactured situation in which a person marries.... himself or herself.

How stupid is that, you ask? I can't begin to describe it.

The United States of America (and the world in general) has become a place where self-pleasure and self-gratification have become the objective of the majority of people. We are so rapidly moving away from Biblical principles, morals and decency that it's difficult to remember how different things were just 40 years ago.

Mental illness is embraced today. Embraced and encouraged. Allowing preschool children to decide their gender and encouraging them in their grossly immature and irrational choices is parental mental illness. Gender dysphoria, once treated as a mental disorder, has now been declared by some as a normal medical issue – to the point where the government has stepped in to say you can be whatever gender you wish to be at any given time. And we have psychologists saying that pedophilia is a sexual orientation rather than a mental illness and a crime.

So now we come back to marrying oneself. One person recently in the news said she married herself because she got tired of people asking her why she was still single. I've got news for her. No matter what ceremony she had or whether or not she donned a wedding ring – she's still single!

The acceptance of sologamy as normal is just one more example of people living out a mental illness. Sure, this one is probably harmless – at least to others. But the harm one inflicts on themselves when they believe something to be real that is not can be devastating in the future.

I don't have a psychology degree. I don't know the innermost workings of the human psyche – although I do have experience working with the mentally ill. But I do know enough to know that pedophilia is sick behavior and enough to know that if you decide to marry yourself and think that's really marriage you're missing a few screws.

The definition of marriage has been changed by the liberal progressives of the world but even today the accepted definition of the term is: the relationship that exists between a husband and a wife. : a similar relationship between people of the same sex. : a ceremony in which two people are married to each other.

Either definition involves two people. If you walk down the aisle to express your vows and you are the only one standing there to hear them, and giving yourself a ring, you're not meeting even the latest, most liberal definition of marriage. And whether or not you're happy being alone, it's truly sad that you believe you must participate in a “marriage” ceremony to secure that for you.

If you love yourself for who you are, why do you need a wedding ceremony to prove it? Get over yourself. You've resigned yourself to be alone. Why do you need to make it official?

I am curious about the concept of self-marriage. If you one day meet that special someone and decide you want to marry an actual partner will you need to get a legal divorce from yourself first? Suppose you get angry at yourself and decide you no longer want to be married. Who has to move out and who gets custody of the personal property and/or any children produced by the marriage? And what happens to life insurance policies and/or pensions following the divorce? Just things to think about before entering into this unholy agreement....
