|Jodi Rose getting married to the bridge|
A woman decided to marry a 600-year-old bridge located in France.
Jodi Rose, an Australian artist who travels the world recording the vibrations of jumper cables to her musical project "Singing Bridges", knew it was true love the first time she laid her eyes on the “Le Pont du Diable”, a 600-year-old bridge in southern France.
Several weeks ago, an intimate affair was held at the entrance of the bridge with 14 guests in attendance, including the Mayor of Saint-Jean-de-Fos, a neighboring village. The radiant bride wore traditional clothing despite her not so traditional wedding. She wore a floor-length ivory gown with a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
Although their union is not legally recognized in France, Rose said it is as strong as any other marriage.
"While I respect those whose sexual and romantic feelings are directed towards objects, mine is a symbolic issue,” she wrote on her blog, Bridgeland. "She understands that I love other bridges, and men. Ours is a love that embraces the ups and downs of life, as materialized in the swirling currents of the river flowing below its gorgeous body," she wrote.
Her love certainly has a solid foundation, but hopefully the bridge feels the same about the open relationship.
Le Pont du Diable, also known as the "Devil's Bridge", was first erected by Benedictine monks in the 11th century and has demonstrated resilience in tough times.
"The bridge is all you could want in a husband, robust, reliable, sensual, kind and handsome," Rose wrote. "There is longevity in the arch of its back, it has stood for 600 years and will stand for another 600 years," she wrote.
