— Adriana Lima just made sologamy a hotter trend
Supermodel and Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana Lima announced the news on Instagram recently after outlets noticed a new diamond band on her hand at the Grand Prix in Monaco.
The 35-year-old wrote;
“Whats up with the ring? Its symbolic, I am committed to myself and my own happiness I am married with me,” Lima captioned the Instagram post. “Ladies love yourself and yes I am single.”
In 2015, a woman named Yasmin Eleby married herself to celebrate her 40th birthday. Surrounded by friends and family, Eleby had 10 bridesmaids by her side when she was married by her sister (self-marriage doesn’t involve a legal process).
“I’d been saying a few years that if I hadn’t gotten married by the time I was 40, I’d just have a wedding by myself,” Eleby told ABC News in an interview. “I decided I didn’t want it to be a joke. I wanted to have a celebration of myself. My wedding was going to be about me making a commitment to love myself, to honor myself and to know my self-worth.”
Even though the super model is technically single (Lima recently split from her Super Bowl-winning beau, Julian Edelman, and then briefly dated Mets pitcher Matt Harvey), some people actually do marry themselves. It’s called “sologomy.”
