A 31-year-old woman, who had not dated for six years and had “never found the right man”, decided to undergo a bold move in her life: marry herself. She got the inspiration for this action from a Bjork song in which the lyric expresses “I'm Isobel, married to myself”.
Grace Gelder bought a ring, and proposed to herself in a park. For the ceremony, she got a dress, and invited all her friends, in front of whom she made vows. She called the whole process “empowering”.
