Man Takes Wife to Visit Family

Ned Nefer is very much in love with his wife, Teagan--so much so that he's pushing the 6-foot wooden mannequin across upstate New York to spend a weekend in the woods with her.
Nefer, 38, says he's married to a mannequin named Teagan, and the kooky couple is traveling 70 miles from Syracuse to Watertown on foot, the Watertown Daily Times reported.

Or at least Nefer is walking. The Syracuse native is pushing his 6-foot wooden wife in a wheelchair across upstate New York.

"This is definitely one of the oddest things I've come across, but he seems very happy," said Lisa Spear, principal social welfare examiner for the Jefferson County Department of Social Services. "I wouldn't classify him as dangerous at all,"

Nefer's relationship is one that's built on trust - and lumber. He told the Daily Times that Teagan was only a head when they first met. But he built her a wooden body and claims they were married on Oct. 31, 1986, in California.

According to Nefer, they "both really love the outdoors," so he's toting along 16 disposable cameras to record the couple's weekend retreat. I expect they'll have a nice time.
