Man marries a dog and woman marries herself - who do you love?

Recently, a 20 year old guy married his 5-year old Labrador Honey, in a ceremony in his local park in the Queensland town of Toowoomba here in Australia. 30 of the couple´s closest friends and family attended the ceremony. Guiso said while he loves his dog, "it is purely platonic".

A similar cermony was held in Taiwan a while back when a 30 year old woman "married" herself by throwing a wedding banquet in a Taipei hotel Saturday witnessed by 30 relatives and friends. She commented:

"Marrying myself is a way of showing that I am confident and upbeat and that I accept myself for who I am. We must love ourselves before we can love others. I must marry myself before marrying the special someone".

I do think these people are totally sane, perhaps even more so than ever other person who simply follow the majority and does what you are supposed to do. I think marrying a dog or yourself is a trend, a symbol for love being broader than just a traditional marriage between two people. Friends are love, pets are love, you are love, nature is love - love is an energy free from people.

Having said that, I belive we have become really bad at containing healthy relationships, which may lead to more people choosing the easy way out, staying single or with a pet. A study from Purina Petcare revealed that 64% of women and 48% of men actually their dog is a better listener than their partner and that 40% of Australians would prefer a warm welcome from their pet after a stressful day at work rather than a cuddle from their partner. 86% of dog owners consider their dog as “more than just a pet” and 20% view them as “a companion for life” .
