So I KNOW y’all heard about this lady who done married… HERSELF. THIS IS CRAZY TO ME!!!!!
A Houston woman named Yasmin Eleby promised herself a long time ago that she would be MARRIED BY THE TIME SHE WAS 40. Well when Yasmin turned 40, and had no man in her life – she decided that she was NOT GOING TO DENY herself the promise.
Listen, I don’t care what facts you use about it being no available men to argue this, she was trippin! Lady if you just wanted to have a party that’s all you had to say.
This lady didn’t want a marriage, she wanted a wedding. I know people who have never walked down the aisle who have a better partnership than people who have been down the aisle and “married” for years. Marriage is not and should not be about the wedding, its just a celebration of the marriage/union/partnership/contract between 2 people.
It was a dream wedding. Complete with a fabulous candlelit ceremony and heartfelt vows to forgive, honor and love … herself. Ma’am, I’m glad you finally figured out this is something you should do anyway! This was a cry for help at 40 shes just now reaching the point to fully commit to herself first, you shouldn’t be trying to get married without self-love, honor and knowing yourself first anyway. Now that she has those things quite possibly she’ll find (& keep) a man now.
Why was 40 the cut off age? WHY IS THERE A CUT OFF AGE?!?! You meet “the one” in perfect timing. People need to stop “making it work” & rushing into relationships to meet timelines and status quo. Some people just need to stay single.
Okay so you marry yourself to prove & celebrate your independence and love you have for yourself, new way of screaming “I don’t need a man”… but keep in mind just a year (s) ago she was clearly searching for & wanting one and now that she didn’t get it, she just decide to love herself? What happens if she meets a great man, later this year? Do you divorce yourself?
I gotta gotta gotta know what y’all think about this. Comment below, tweet, email IG let me know!
