“I literally had the idea when I was lying in bed recovering from flu and a bad relationship,” 38-year-old Sophie Tanner told The Independent. “Everyone celebrates getting together with someone and becoming married, but there’s no milestone in society that celebrates escaping something awful or returning to your own happiness and contentment.” And so Sophie decided to mark that milestone herself. On May 16, 2015, she went to Brighton’s Unitarian Church in the United Kingdom and got married…to Sophie Tanner. That’s right: She married herself.
