Model who married herself divorces herself after just 90 days as she’s ‘met someone else’
A model is getting a divorce from herself barely three months after she got married to herself.
Cris Galera, 33, made headlines back in September this year when she held a wedding to formalize marrying herself.
She happily posed for pictures on her wedding day in front of a Catholic church in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
She said at the time she was tired of relying on men, so she decided to marry herself instead. Cris also said she was embracing being alone and wasn’t “disappointed” she didn’t have a groom.
Talking back in September about marrying herself, Cris said: “I reached a point where I matured, I realized that I am a strong and determined woman.
“I was always afraid of being alone, but I realised that I needed to learn to feel good about myself.
“When that happened, I decided to celebrate it.”
However, just 90 days after marrying herself, she revealed she’s getting a divorce because she is starting to fall in love with someone else after “meeting someone special.”
Talking about the divorce, Cris said: “I was happy while it lasted.”
But, she added: “I started to believe in love the moment I met someone else special.”
Sologamy is marriage by a person to themselves. Supporters of the practice argue that it affirms one’s own value and leads to a happier life.
Legally, self-marriage isn’t legitimate but there are no laws against it. Sologamy is more of a symbolic ritual than a legal contract, which means you are allowed to make your own rules. You can have all the fun of the tradition without worrying about pesky paperwork.
Tanner, sologamist and author of “Reader, I Married Me!,” said some people associate sologamy with vanity, seeking adoration, or narcissism. But, she argues, it helps develop a sense of self-worth that deepens the capacity for human connection.
