A 22-year-old man in Russia has gone ahead and done what we all joke about doing: He’s married pizza.
Yes, you read that right. This man, who lives in the small city of Tomsk in south-central Russia, has provided quite an interesting reason for doing so:
“Pizza would not reject you or betray you, and speaking quite frankly and sincerely, I love it.”
While I’m sure that most of us would agree with him, none of us would actually go ahead and marry pizza. He has done what could be considered as “taking the joke too far.” However, it was no joke for this man. He was very serious about the entire event. He was fed up with being single and said:
“At some point, I realized that half of my friends were complaining about their better half, while the others were complaining about the lack of a better half.”
So instead, he opted to marry something that has eight halves.
The ceremony took place in a pizzeria in Russia, as obviously this is not a marriage fit for a church. The groom looked quite happy and in love, wearing a shirt and a wide smile. The bride was very careful in making sure that no crumbs spoilt her appearance. She looked radiant in her cardboard dress and a white veil (yes, she actually had a veil).
The wedding ceremony was carried out in a pretty traditional manner, with someone from the pizzeria walking the bride down the aisle. There were no objections to the wedding (most likely because the same bride was available for the same amount of money, one order away), and the ceremony was carried out without a hitch. The pizzeria even provided the happy couple with a marriage certificate.
The groom is said to have quoted:
“Love between two humans is a complicated, wild thing. I was grateful that I had at least my love of food, and then it came to me that actually love for food remains stable no matter what.”
Well, that’s a beautiful sentiment, but I’m pretty sure he’ll forget all about it the next time he’s hungry. Let’s be optimistic about this holy union, and they could surprise us and make it work!
