Cris Galera, a luxury lingerie model, recently married herself in São Paulo in the name of “self-love.”
For the solo ceremony, Galera wore a white dress with a “killer neckline” that accentuated her best features. She even threw a bridal bouquet.
While talking about her marriage, the Brazilian model said, “I was happy while it lasted,” and added, “I started to believe in love the moment I met someone else special,” the Mirror reported. Further, Cris remarked in September when asked about marrying herself, “I reached a point where I matured, I realized that I am a strong and determined woman. I was always afraid of being alone, but I realized that I needed to learn to feel good about myself. When that happened, I decided to celebrate it.”
The New York Post points out that the woman revived a trend called sologamy, in which singles marry for themselves and claim that they don’t need a partner to find happiness.
“Men have difficulty being faithful or staying with just one woman. They want several [women] at the same time.” she said. “I like to be a priority and I am my priority.”
Galara admitted that problems related to a previous relationship forced her to follow through on her recent wedding. She’s even going on a solo honeymoon.
“I will never divorce myself, but also if a new love appears, I will want to live the experience. I’ll put the person in second place, first it will always be me.” she added.
