She Married The Eiffel Tower

More news of the weird via France-based American blogger Why Travel To France: "Erika La Tour Eiffel, 37, a former soldier who lives in San Francisco, has been in love with objects before," writes the Telegraph. "But it is the Eiffel Tower she has pledged to love, honour and obey in an intimate ceremony attended by a handful of friends. She has changed her name legally to reflect the bond." Erika is one in 40 women in the world who are "Objectum-Sexual."

Miss La Tour Eiffel cites a life of abuse to explain her syndrome. "Someone who falls in love with objects can control that relationship on their own terms," says a psychotherapist. "Their objects will not let them down. That is extremely attractive for a person who is otherwise often desperately lonely." Ceci explique cela.
