As part of the event that took place during her celebration of Valentine’s day, an American soldier, Shaunice Safford took to Instagram to announce that she is now engaged to herself.
According to American soldier, she is really the one she wants to spend the rest of her life with. Her post read;
I SAID YES! For the past 2 years, I could NEVER see myself getting married, UNTIL TODAY! 😩 When I saw myself get down on one knee, I looked at myself & thought “I really am the one I wanna spend the rest of my life with” ❤ HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY
This is however not the first a lady will be engaging herself, nor going ahead to marry herself. In 2014, a woman who was so fed up with the dating scene and single life, became the first person in Britain to marry HERSELF.
Grace Gelder even ‘proposed’ to herself on a park bench and staged a full wedding ceremony with 50 guests.
The photographer said that after being single for six years she had built up a brilliant relationship with herself – and creating that bond with someone else seemed like too much hard work.
Inspired by the Björk song Isobel, which includes the line, ‘My name’s Isobel, married to myself’, the Londoner said the lyric struck a chord with her and it was then she decided to walk solo down the aisle.
From proposing to herself on the park bench in Parliament Hill, London, last November, right through to the ceremony in mid-March this year, the matrimony was approached like an ordinary wedding.
Speaking to the Guardian, she said: “A few did comment, in a light-hearted way, that it was a bit narcissitic. Obviously, if you have just announced you’re marrying yourself, it is plainly a statement of self-love, and I was under no illusion how self-indulgent that might appear.
“But I was completely comfortable with my motivations. I’d been on a journey of personal development using meditation, dance and performance to increase my self-awareness.
