13 People Who Married Inanimate Objects

Object sexuality: heard of it? It's a syndrome that causes people to fall in love with objects and identify them as a gender, give them a name, and have what they believe is a fulfilling, loving, relationship with these items. Yes, you read that right: there are (at least 13) people in the world who have fallen in love with, and married, inanimate objects (and you thought your love life was complicated).

OS is defined as "a pronounced emotional and often romantic desire towards developing significant relationships with particular inanimate objects." Individuals with this expressed preference may feel strong feelings of attraction, love, and commitment to certain items or structures of their fixation. For others, sexual or even close emotional relationships with humans are incomprehensible and undesireable. Object-sexual individuals (people who enjoy the company of, and marry, inanimate objects) also often believe in animism, and sense reciprocation based on the belief that objects have souls, intelligence, feelings, and are able to communicate.

How many people have married inanimate objects? Can people marry pillows? You'll find out all you want to know about object sexuality, and maybe some things you don't want to know, in this list of people who married non-living things.

    The Ride of Her Life: A Woman Marries a Roller Coaster

    Amy Wolfe Weber is a church organist who comes from Pennsylvania, and she is married to a roller coaster. The husband in question is an 80ft gondola ride called 1001 Nachts. The 35-year-old woman said she first fell for the ride at the tender age of 13, "I was instantly attracted to him sexually and mentally. I wasn’t freaked out, as it just felt so natural, but I didn’t tell anyone about it because I knew it wasn’t ‘normal’ to have feelings for a fairground ride."

    Amy had ridden the ride over 3,000 times before they were married, I guess that's her version of a normal courtship, she sleeps with a picture of the ride on her ceiling and carries spare nuts and bolts from it in her pocket, so that way they are always together.... just what you like to hear... a fair ride having "extra parts."

    Amy claims they have a fulfilling physical and spiritual relationship, and she doesn't get jealous when other people ride her husband. Oh, and Weber is the name of the ride's manufacturer; Amy changed it after she was married.
