The Oddest Couples you will ever come across! Trust us, you will be left bewildered to the core!
Love can really make anything look beautiful. We have often come across odd love stories where people who are totally different get married and lead happy lives with their dear ones. It is true that love alone is enough for a happy married life. Here are examples of some oddest couples that may surprise the common man but just amuse someone else in love.
1 Marriage With The Eiffel Tower
This is surely one of the oddest couples where the bride falls in love with the Eiffel Tower. She is among the few around the world who are ‘objectum sexuals’ or people who fall in love with objects. She even officialised her love for the Eiffel Tower and changed her surname to Eiffel. She even profiled a documentary named ‘The Woman Who Married The Eiffel’ where she is shown exhibiting love to her husband, the Eiffel Tower.
2 Marriage With The Pet
We all love our pets and wish to give our pets the best life. But there is surely a limit to this love for creatures of other species. Most of us can’t imagine marrying some creature that belongs to the animal species. Amanda Rodgers is a British woman who thinks it is quite normal to marry a dog. She gets married to her pet dog Sheba. She had brought Sheba home when it was just two weeks. Yet, unlike her ex-lover who was unkind to her, Sheba was her perfect mate.
3 Age No Bar
In true love, age can never stand as a hindrance and that is why this couple makes it to the oddest couples list. Time has proved this fact over and over again that age is no bar when it comes to true love. Ahmed Muhamed Dhore is a 112-year-old man who married a 17-year-old bride. It surely shows the courage of this Somalian man. He went ahead and married the woman of his dreams even though she was much younger. He is so old that he can be her great great grandfather but he chose to be the legally wedded groom.
4 Truly Late Marriage
Boris married Anna Kozlov in a proper ceremony. Just three days after their marriage, they were separated and they stayed separate for 60 years. After 3 days of togetherness, Boris had to join his Red Army. When he returned back after his exploits, Anna and her family were exiled. This was caused by Stalin’s purges. 80-year-old Boris returned to his parents’ grave and that is when he saw Anna again. They were united after such a long separation. They remarried again and lived few years of togetherness.
5 Towering Couple
Height does give you a persona but what happens when you are so tall that you stand out of the crowd. Time made two such people meet. Anna Haining Swan, born on 6th August 1846, was a towering 7 ft 5.5 inches tall. She fell in love with Martin Van Buren Bates who was also tall and measured 7ft 2.5 inches. He was born on 9th November 1837. The two worked in the same circus and that is where Cupid struck. They got married in St Martin in the Fields in London on 17 June 1871. The ceremony was conducted by Rev Rupert Cochrane who appeared like a dwarf in front of this couple. He was actually a good 6 ft 3 inches tall. He was a family friend of Anna.
6 Same Name Pair
Often we hear of cases where the bride and the groom have the same surname but here is a couple that have husband and wife of the same name. These are two lovers who met online first. The girl is Kelly Hildebrandt from Florida and the guy is Kelly Hildebrandt from Texas. Their name and surname remains the same even after marriage. Unfortunately, the couple have called off their wedding due to irreconcilable differences.
Such oddest couples are surely a rare sight. But, what can be said! Love is what made them and love is what kept most of them going strong. Truly love is the food for soul that can simply not be restricted due to any reason whatsoever, for when a person finds his/her soul mate, life finds its most precious reason to live beautifully and blissfully! But, yes odd these couples are!
