Women Are Marrying…  Themselves?
These days some women are choosing to marry themselves.
Insider reports that “sologamy,” or marrying oneself, is on the rise among women; who are looking to solidify their commitment to themselves.
And it’s not just symbolic:  Women are proposing to themselves, and throwing elaborate weddings, with all the trimmings.
Some experts have suggested that the pandemic may be partly responsible for more interest in self-partnership…  really, self-reliance.
Psychologist Ieva Kubiliute explains, “With increased time spent at home alone, individuals have opted for new methods to appreciate themselves and enhance self-compassion.”
InsideHook points out that the practice seems to reflect the value of independence, which ultimately seems like a good thing.
