The Most Shocking Love Stories
Love is blind, irrational and inexplicable, and in order to “understand” it, you will have to feel it yourself. Apparently it is the definition for the following bizarre, crazy and shocking love stories and obsessions.
1 Gamer married a videogame character
Before you laugh, just read the story till the end. The twenty-something who goes by the name of Sal 9000 streamed what was described as a “semi-serious” wedding to Nene Anegasaki, a two-dimensional cartoon character that exists inside the Nintendo DS game Love Plus. Vows were exchanged, there was a DJ, and the ceremony ended with a kiss. If you feel like searching, there is a video of the “wedding”.
2 Woman Marries Man Convicted of Killing Her Twin Sister
Victor Cingolani and Edith Casas got married but, the bride’s family wasn’t happy at all. Victor was convicted of murdering Edith’s twin sister Johanna, a former model, in 2010. Victor is currently serving 13 years for being a “willing participant” in Johanna’s death, who was shot twice in the head days before her 20th birthday. The happy couple, who have been together since before the murder, swear he is innocent and he is currently appealing the case. “Victor is not a violent person and I’m not mad.We love each other,” the bride was quoted as saying. She was forced to go through psychological evaluations before the brief ceremony in front of a judge. Of course Johanna’s family have disowned her, blaming her for betrayal.)
3 Twin Brothers Marry Twin Sisters and Have Twin Babies
Twin brothers Craig and Mark Sanders met twin sisters Diane and Darlene Nettermeyer at the Twins Festival in Twinsberg, Ohio. Craig and Diane fell in love, and so did Mark and Darlene. Eventually, they got married in the same ceremony, moved into adjoining houses, and Diane and Craig had twin boys.
Monozygotic (“identical”) twins occur in 33.3 per 1,000 US births.
4 Woman Stalker Planned a Wedding with Her Victim
One very important thing about a wedding is that it should always occur between consenting adults. But that didn’t stop Madeline Desmet, from planning a wedding with a man she barely knew. Desmet met the man (who is unidentified) briefly at church in 2010 and was instantly lovestruck. However, the feeling was not mutual, in spite of the fact that she sent him 50 letters professing her “undying” love. Things got really weird and scary when the woman went so far as to plan a December wedding, setting up a date at the municipal court and even picking out rings for the occasion; the man was tipped off when the jeweler called him about payment. Not so romantic.
5 Girl marries a dolphin
These are Sharon Tendler and her husband Cindy. No, this isn’t a gay marriage, because Cindy is a boy and is a dolphin! It was the first inter species “marriage” between a human and a porpoise. Ms. Tendler, an eccentric millionaire, met Cindy at an Israeli resort in the early 1990s and courted him for more than a dozen years. Finally, Cindy and Sharon were wed on December 28. 2005. Sadly, Cindy died in June the following year.
6 The man who lived with a corpse bride
And as bizarre as it sounds, there is more. The lonely x-ray technician, he became obsessed with Elena Hoyos, who was a patient at the hospital where he worked. The woman was suffering from tuberculosis and the Count promised to restore her to health with his x-ray machine, even though he knew that she was dying. When she finally passed on October 25, 1931, she was buried, but Van Cosel convinced the family to move her to a mausoleum. What they didn’t know was that he had the only key and would visit her every night. After a few years, he secretly moved her to his house, where he would dress her up in bridal clothes and sometimes dance (and probably do other things) with her. He covered her decaying flesh with wax and plaster and doused her with perfume. He was eventually caught and tried for his heinous deeds, but by this time the statute of limitations had passed.
