AMAZIAN OF THE WEEK! Chen Wei-yih, A Taiwanese Woman Engaged To Marry Herself

October 25th, 2010 | 9 comments | Posted by Diana




Name: Chen Wei-yih

Age: 30

Occupation: Office Worker

Known for: Committing herself to Number One by proposing… to herself. Chen wants to puncture the perception of single women as something to look down on–so at age 30, having not yet met anyone else she wants to spend her life with, she has decided to marry her own bad self.

From HuffPo:

For the 30-year-old Taipei resident, there will be no Prince Charming, no tuxedoed groom. In an effort to defy the traditional Asian perception of single, independent women as failures, Chen says she will marry herself.

“Age 30 is a prime period for me,” Chen is quoted by Reuters as saying. “My work and experience are in good shape, but I haven’t found a partner, so what can I do?”

Chen’s gutsy endeavor has picked up a hefty amount of web traction, with netizens flocking to her Facebook page of cute-as-hell pre-wedding photos by the thousands. But keep in mind that hers should not be confused with some sort of disgruntled position on men, relationships, or marriage. “It’s not that I’m anti-marriage,” she told Reuters. “I just hope that I can express a different idea within the bounds of a tradition.”

And so she has, even if she had to win over her Hardass Asian Mom over as part of the process. We have to admit, she’s so ballsy and awesome that we kinda want to marry her.

    I wonder if it is a strictly monogamous relationship.
    If she hooked up with someone would it count as a three-some?
