    TAIPEI, Taiwan (UPI) -- A Taiwanese woman married herself in a protest against what she says are overwhelming pressures on women to opt for marriage and children.

    Friends appear happy, but in private, they worry she was only after her money.

    How on earth does that work? It doesn't even make any sense. Let alone a statement.

    Isn't not getting married protest enough against the pressures of marriage and kids?

    I have nothing against it, I've pondered the thought myself when having woman issues, but I just don't see any benefit to it. You should already love yourself more than anyone else, no need to marry yourself to show that.

    Kind of amusing though... I want to know what kind a crazy judge would sign that marriage license though. Seems like the judge is crazier than the woman. I wonder what the ceremony was like too. Did she kiss herself at the end? Is she both the husband and wife? How did the honeymoon night work too?

    Haha yea good point! It would either be the easiest divorce or the worst one ever. Sometimes those arguments with yourself can get pretty heated.

    The story is real.

    The part about her friends, not so much.

    In a marital dispute it adds a whole new meaning to the phrase "Go **** yourself".

    If she gets pregnant and the baby doesn't look like her, will she make herself get a paternity test?

    I suppose she could get it any time she wants, unless... "Not now, I've got a headache".

    At one time asexual reproduction ruled the living world. Just trying to return the balance of nature.

    Lifetime made a movie about a woman who marries herself for those exact reasons, in 2007, called "I Me Wed."

    I wonder if she was inspired to do this by that movie.
