Love should always be unconditional, not bound by any norms or regulations. It lies beyond any sexual orientation or any race. Love is always pure, and selfless. You don’t think and reason before falling in love. It just happens. So, if a 20-year girl falls in love with a 40-year-old man, it happens. If a married woman falls in love with another man, it happens. But if a woman falls in love with a wall? Well, that doesn’t happen.
That is where our rainbow oozing love smitten brain doesn’t think it’s normal. Well, I’m not judging anyone here, but after reading this list of people who got married to weird things (both living and non-living), you might need to rethink some of those love laws you live by.

8. German man married his dying cat

10. Bimbala Das, a Hindu woman married a snake
She claimed that she had fallen in love with the snake and then got married in accordance with Hindu marriage rituals.

11. A man from Sudan married a goat
This one is a little twisted. In Sudan, there is a law that dictates that if a man is caught sleeping with a woman, he must marry her to keep the honour of her family. So, in 2006, when Charles Tombe was caught physically assaulting a goat, guess what happened? He even had to pay a dowry to its owner.
Hope you found these interesting.
Until next time… 🙂
