36 year old woman gives up on men and marries ‘herself’

A 36 year old US woman, Nadine Schweigert, who is  tired of living single and tired of men recently walked the aisle with herself.

At the wedding ceremony, attended by 40 of her friends, Nadine read her vows: “I, Nadine, promise to enjoy inhabiting my own life and to relish a lifelong love affair with my beautiful self” and presented herself with a ring and invited all guests to “blow kisses to the whole world”.  According to Schweigert, who works at Swanson’s Health and teaches yoga “I have never been happier…I married myself to celebrate the progress I have made in life after being divorced 6years ago.”

Ms Schwigert said she went through a painful time when her two kids chose to live with their father after her divorce.
“I was waiting for someone to come along and make me happy,” she says. “At some point, a friend said, ‘Why do you need someone to marry you to be happy? Marry yourself.’”

When Schweigert first mentioned the idea a year ago, she was discouraged by several female friends who thought it was weird but when the idea resurfaced some months ago she embraced it “It was just one of those things where you get an idea, and you know you just have to do it…and this time my friends backed me up…two friends baked cakes, another friend officiated and many others presented readings.”

So far, Nadine enjoys spending time with herself, going out on date nights, buying treats and gifts for herself, and says she’s no longer waiting for “someone to complete her.”

    Marriage is done where there is presence of 2 people, anything outside that is a mirage.

      Men are too selfish to desire marriage anymore…..and the men that do marry, always cheat (even if he has a good woman)…..so women are left with the option to marry themselves and actually be Happy for a change. True happiness is NEVER  a Mirage! People who find happiness all by themselves have found True happiness. This woman made an excellent descision to mary herself. At the end of the day, Men will Not be there after the fun of the relationship is over. Also, one of the great things about being married to yourself is that you know that no one will ever love you or appreciate you as much as you do yourself. You also don’t have to worry about the consequences of a nasty, bitter divorce if you are married to yourself.

          what language is that?

        The true sign of the end of time is the fact that Men would rather sleep around and make babies with random women (that they rarely take care of) than be in a committed loving relationship with a good woman. This woman wouldn’t have to marry herself if men would stop being so sex crazed and selfish that they don’t value real love and intimacy with good women. Men need to stop choosing loose women, prostitutes, strip clubs, bars and adultery over being with one of the many beautiful, intelligent, good women that actually Want to build and share a life with them. I see men well into their 30′s, 40′s and 50′s that are still chasing random women to sleep with like they did when they were in their 20′s. At what point does a man grow up and stop wanting to sleep with every woman he sees? Men really need to be the ones trying harder to get married!

    Its sad d way americans ridicle marriage. Must she marry herself or do nuns who say dey r married to jesus hv weddings? She shld get herself busy n stop wasting our time. Nonsense

    • Mich7423

      All Americans Don’t Ridicule Marriage. All people are Not the same just because they share a country. You need to Educate Yourself and Stop Stereotyping People. That’s what is Truly Nonsense. Perhaps you should get busy with your own life and stop making ridiculous comments about things you know nothing about. Stop wasting our time.

  • Bisijewel

    LMAO…. I cant stop laughing… i’m waiting for the day she is going to divorce herself.

  • kumkay1

  • Husseiny4u

    Sheer madness.

  • Blixxchic

    Arrant nonesense!!!!

  • Slim en Tall

    I believe she’s mentally derailed but it’s not just obvious at the moment due to her statment of going through a painful time when her two kids decided to live with their fatheer after the divorce. But if she’s fine mentally and supposedly happy like she said, then I’m happy for her

  • Kay

    Story, this is frustration catching up with Nadine so long as i can understand. After all, it takes two to tango“

  • Godswilldash

    omg! that lady needs to be checked … cos some day she will find fault with herself and divorce herself too ! ”no man or woman is an island”!

  • Sunday Sampson

    Interesting news! At least it’s better than ‘increase in electricity tariff by June.’

  • Talk2sammy07

    Lool…the height of frustration.But did she need to go through all d stress of a wedding ceremony?why not just stay single?but wait,wud her govt also recognize her as her own spouse?dats rily crazy:D

  • Arrival

    Nadine marries herself. Thats same sex marriage. Doesn’t that make her a lesbian?

  • Guff76

    If she has sex with someone(other than herself), does that mean she had an affair?

    If she falls in love with another, does she have to get a divorce & pay(or get paid) alimony? :P

     I read that she referred to herself as “unique & awesome”, sounds pretty self absorbed, no wonder why shes divorced!

  • Lpalms

    Ok, she lives alone, she cooks for herself, she dates herself, the pleasure of intimacy is with herself, she talks to herself, she answers herself……………
    Who holds you? Who simply holds your hand? How do you receive a gentle kiss? Do you call yourself too??
    After you married yourself, you’re still alone. Sorry.

  • Dre2

    She’s obviously sick and needs our prayers

    • MelJsm

      Why is a woman who respects herself and values herself enough to have a ceremony that confirms her independence and self worth automatically sick? If she compained about Not having a man……everyone would talk about how desperate and needy she was. Now it’s wrong for a woman to appreciate being by herself? Wow! I agree with R563w’s comment above. If men would stop acting like whores and chasing every vagina that comes their way….maybe they would see the Value in marriage to a good woman. Quality women who are actually About something in this world would Not have to marry themselves, if men would step up to the plate and learn that God didn’t intend for this world to be used as a platform for one Big Oragy!  Get it together guys and learn to actually Value a Quality woman! The Men of today are the ones who Truly need our prayers! 

  • Yinbirikingsley

    Are your frIend who gave you the idea married to themselves? You allow them to deceive you. Sorry, you need a man. What you ve done is not marriage but make belief, you are acting a drama. The rainny day ll come when you need a man badly.

  • Why_me20072003

    All I think is;the woman doesn’t av something to do with her time n she really wants to show off or probably show her ex-husband she can leave happily without him.Grave mistake! the best wedding gift anybody can give her now is to take her to the psych hospital 4 check up.she is sick

  • Sherithman
