Self Love at It’s Peak; Ugandan Lady Officially Marries Herself

Published

on

Love yourself,love yourself, take that bold step, do something crazy…Pretty sure those must have been the thoughts on her mind when she embarked on this mission.

Pretty Ugandan lady, Lulu Jemima,32 year of age, a student of Oxford told the bold step by getting married to herself officially, with fanfare and all.

This is how the gist went down according to DailymailUk

Jemima had grown tired of being asked when she was getting married so she made the extraordinary decision to tie the knot to herself( ingenuous really. Maybe our single 40 year old nigerian women could do this to their parents but I doubt it would fly)

Oxford student Lulu Jemimah,  was fed-up of her family lecturing her on the importance of settling down with the right man.

But marriage is the last thing on her mind as she studies a masters in creative writing at the prestigious university therefore in a bid to get her parents off her back, she decided to stage a mock wedding and sent formal invites out to her all and sunder, every close friend and family ( just imagine the look on their faces when they realised what was happening)

She hired a dress, walked through the venue to the traditional wedding march and even gave a speech to her guests explaining the lack of a groom. ( talk about staying true to character)

While Lulu admits her Ugandan parents are baffled by her decision, she feels it was the perfect commitment to herself and her studies.

The entire day cost just £2 – for her taxi to the pub venue – as she managed to get the rest of her big day for free or as gifts from friends.

Proud singleton Lulu said: ‘I have a strong passion in life and I am committed to achieving my goals at becoming an academic.

‘But all my family wanted to ask me was when I planned to get married – which is very important back in Uganda – followed by when I would be having children and starting a family.

‘My father wrote my wedding speech when I turned 16. Every birthday my mother prayed for me and in recent years this has included a plea for a good husband.

She certainly put ideas in our heads. Imagine threatening my own mother that I would marry myself if she doesn’t stop badgering me to get a man. Epic! I’m thinking family meetings, deliverance, spiritual interventions, etc

Look at how happy she is though
