Other woman who had similar solo wedding
American Meg Taylor Morrison wanted to wed her boyfriend on Halloween day which also happened to be her favorite day of the year. She was happy and looking forward to the day. But shortly before the nuptials, her boyfriend refused to marry her and she was left devastated. But she did not allow this to dampen her spirits. She wanted to heal her heartache and decided to marry herself. She did a solo wedding and called it an act of self-love.
Meg works as a life coach and said:
“Part of marrying myself was about going beyond people-pleasing or trying to look a certain way. It was about saying yes to my own desires,”
She hopes people get encouraged by her act. She said:
“I wear my ring every day and it reminds me to listen to my intuition and make decisions that align with my values,”
“It also acts as a reminder that loving myself first is the basis for healthy relationships with others, whether it’s my next romantic partner or my relationships with my family members.”
