Woman Engaged to Marry Herself

Chen Wei-yih of Taiwan has found the right person to marry -- herself. She's spending $5,675 on a groom-less wedding that concludes with a honeymoon in Australia:

"Age thirty is a prime period for me. My work and experience are in good shape, but I haven't found a partner, so what can I do?" Chen said.

"It's not that I'm anti-marriage. I just hope that I can express a different idea within the bounds of a tradition," she added.[...]

"If I had a steady boyfriend, I wouldn't do this," Chen said. "It would be offensive to him, anyway."

I don't know why anyone would marry anyone, themself or otherwise. Just take a great vacation to Australia and enjoy your life and don't be so bound by traditions, would be my advice. Things are different in Taiwain than they are in the U.S. in that regard, though, I suppose. And @Rocky, a life without a partner is not wasted, rather it is actually enjoyed. @vonskippy, Mr. Good Enough is never good enough, it's better to be alone than marry or partner with someone who isn't right.
