Woman has become engaged to a chandelier

A woman who had previously been in a relationship with the Statue of Liberty is now in love with a light fixture.
35-year-old Londoner Amanda Liberty, whose surname is a reflection of her previous infatuation with the world-famous statue, finds it easier to connect with inanimate objects than with people.

This unusual trait first presented itself when she fell in love with a drum kit at the age of 14.

Her relationship with the Statue of Liberty, which began in her 20s, ultimately failed to work out because she found it difficult to visit the statue on a regular basis due to the distances involved.

Her current engagement to a 100-year-old chandelier however seems to be going a lot better.

"I don't even completely understand it myself, but I still accept it as part of who I am," she said.

She now hopes to marry the light fixture, which she has named Lumiere, in the near future.

Seems to me I recall stories of people marrying animals in other countries but I can't be bothered to look that up.  I still don't think marrying an inanimate object is the problem that's going to bring the world to an end. It all seems so trite when mad little white boys with guns are mowing people down en masse.

Was that a serious reply? Are you not aware of back channel chat boards and a president who stokes their hatred constantly?  I will exit here since this is not the place to get political but "don't make them mad" is just really p***ing on the graves of a lot of innocent people who aren't even in their graves yet.

not really, it was a jab at your wise a$$ reply, but something did made him mad to that point, you need to figure what it was before you make someone else flip out. as i see gun surrender is not really a hit with your residents, what is the compliance rate, 10% at best? back channel boards?? nope never heard of such,  but i'll take your word for it, since you obviously familiar with them,  as far as president, nope, i am aware of liberal msm industry trying to make it look like he does, but it is nothing but  a lie,  if black people come to his rallies with a banner president is not racist, i'...

So you had a Light-bulb moment? I always like a Glowing testimonial. And that your understanding is now Crystal Clear.

So as usual....a simple comment gets turned I to a big drama.....all I said is that people should first stop celebrating them and being PC when there is an obvious disconnect.. Using gardening as an example is obviously far off the mark. Rather than encouraging people who think they are mermaids trapped in a human body we should recommend they talk to a professional.

And why do you assume that hasn't been recommended to her dozens of times? It's hard to get an adult, who's not a danger to themselves or others, to seek -- or be forced to take -- medical help.

A Sybian? I'm surprised it hasn't happened yet, TTTT.

Maybe that's true  but I think that putting them on tv,  showering them with attention and pandering to their delusion is unhealthy for them and just adds another dimension to it.
