Here's one way to prove your love. A heartbroken woman wearing a wedding dress and clutching a brick recently stormed a Seattle City Council meeting to protest the redevelopment of a historical neighborhood. The reason she was wearing a wedding dress was because she was about to get married to the neighborhood. As for the brick, it happened to be the remains of her former spouse, which was a warehouse that was torn down.
But just like a romcom heroine, the woman insists that her wedding to the neighborhood will go on as planned. KOMO reports:
When asked if she had armed herself with a brick, she explained that the brick was her wife.
"Oh no, that's my spouse," she said. "I got married to a building earlier this year."
Aivez also told police that she didn't need a mental evaluation.
"This officer says I need a mental evaluation or I need to go to
jail becaue he doesn't believe that (brick) is my spouse," she said to
the small crowd outside City Hall.
Confused? Here's the explanation: The woman happens to be an “objectophile", which means she has emotional and romantic
desire towards developing significant relationships with particular
inanimate objects (warehouses, neighbourhoods, etc). And it happens more often than you think.
She married the warehouse earlier this year in a lovely outdoor ceremony, but the union ended when her wife (the building) was torn down. Now she intends to remarry the neighborhood of Yessler Terrace on August 5th of this year. Unfortunately, City Hall had other plans in mind for their union and she was charged with criminal trespassing.
