Love is a beautiful thing, love is that joyful feeling which everyone wants to experience though many succeed in it or unfortunately fail to get it. On the other hand there are some people who take love to the very extreme, to a point where it turns weird, bizarre and sometimes unacceptable for many peoples.
“Love is blind” “love is unconditional” “love knows no boundaries” and the list continues. These are the very often reasons that we give when people cross their limits to marry the person they love.
But what would you call it when people marry things or animals or places in the name of love? What name would you give to such odd couples and weird marriages? But there are such marriages that will make you think that how extreme and weird love can be.
Following this subject today, we decided to present a list of some people who changed the definition of love and marriage and hopped over the boundaries of it.
Here are the 10 most odd and weird marriages from around the world.
