Yasmin Eleby marries herself after turning 40

Yasmin Eleby recently married herself in a lovely candlelight ceremony at the Huston Museum of African American Culture (HMAAC), on Saturday, Janauary 3, 2015.

Family and friends of the bride, who is also a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., were in attendance to support her as she exchanged vows with herself in a solo wedding.

According to Eleby, she had promised herself that if she had not found a husband by the time she turns 40, she would marry herself. And she kept that promise.

Her 3 sisters and some of her friends were her bridesmaids, and her mother gave her away… well, technically, gave her to herself.

A lot of people have questioned the wisdom behind this sort of wedding, while others congratulated her for taking the bold step.

Perhaps, this is a lesson in self-love, but is this a little too much? What do you guys think?
