Bhubaneswar: A Vadodara-based woman is all set to marry herself in an act of ‘self-love’ and ‘self-acceptance’. Kshama Bindu, 24, will take the vows with herself on June 11. Kshama does not want to get married, but loves to be a bride – so she chose self over others, a Times of India report stated.
This new type of relationship has been named ‘sologamy’, or ‘self-marriage’. Bindu’s ‘self-marriage’ is possibly the first of its kind in Gujarat, and probably even India.
She told TOI she did some research to find out if any other woman had married herself but could not find any. “Maybe I am the first to set an example of self-love in our country.” According to Bindu, ‘self-marriage’ is a “commitment to be there for yourself and unconditional love for oneself”. She said it is also “an act of self-acceptance”.
“People marry someone they love. I love myself and hence this wedding,” she declared. Bindu works for a private firm. She has reportedly written five vows for her wedding that will be held at a temple. She is also set to go on a two-week honeymoon to Goa, the TOI report revealed.
