Woman marries 600-year-old bridge: 'He's sensual, kind and handsome'
Digital Spy ^ | July 5, 2013 | Clarissa Place

Posted on 07/05/2013 3:08:04 PM PDT by Clintonfatigued

A woman has married a 600-year-old bridge in France.

Jodie Rose, an Australian artist, visited Le Pont du Diable as part of her 'Singing Bridges' project, recording the vibrations in bridge cables.

Explaining that she felt the world move under her feet while standing on the 14th Century structure, Rose wrote on her website: "The Devil's Bridge is everything I could desire in a husband - sturdy, trustworthy, sensual, kind and handsome.

"He understands that I love other bridges - and men. Ours is a love that embraces the vagaries of life, as materialised in the swirling currents of the river that flows beneath his magnificent body."

The ceremony took place at the mouth of the bridge, where the new Mrs Le Pont du Diable wore a wedding gown and held a small service for 14 close friends and local members of the community.

The French government does not legally recognize the marriage, but the bride has insisted that the union is as strong as any other.

"This is not a decision I undertake lightly, just as our curves complement, we truly bring joy to each other, and the strength of his pylons will always carry me home," Rose added.

Will the bridge be able to support her?

Which is the bridge? Didn’t some other miserable female marry an old building in the US last year? What’s wrong with these females. Something is wrong. Very wrong.

A minor hair split but the bridge often depicted in that nursery rhyme is not London Bridge, nor was it ever. It’s Tower Bridge.

It is a nice bridge but I personally prefer the Cut River Bridge in Michigan's UP.

Judging by the photo, I assume the bridge's nickname is "Arch"?

(Or "Lloyd"...)

The question is: Can a 600 year old bridge still get it up?
If not, will Viagra help?
Can one buy that much?
If the bridge stays up for more than 4 hours, who do you call?

Even if they get divorced, the bridge will have to support her.

I’m sure that the Supreme Court will approve. Justice Kennedy will tell us that anyone who disapproves obviously hates bridges.

Eventually she will want to change him, then be dissatisfied with the progress.

HERE COMES THE BRIDGE
Tune: "Here Comes the Bride"

Here comes the bridge,
From ridge to ridge,
Sturdy and solid, he won't move a smidge;
Arching and tall--
Makes you look small--
When you make love may you not hit a wall.

“The French government does not legally recognize the marriage”

Wow, really author? Thanks for clarifying that. I’m glad that poor bridge won’t have to pay alimony after the inevitable breakup.

Her father must have held the bridge at gunpoint.

I saw something on NATGEO or some channel like that about weirdos in love with inanimate objects.

This one dude loves his cars, I guess he puts more than gasoline in the tank. He had a whole bunch of them in different colors, he better stop sleeping around before he gets run over in a fit of jealousy.

This lady bought a chunk of the Berlin Wall and sleeps with it in her bed, she refused to give details about how ever she uses it as a masturbation aid.

On an episode of “Nip Tuck” there a dude that was attracted to sofas.

Not a peep from the gay community in solidarity.

Now that marriage has officially been relegated to the ashbin of history, I think of this diddy from years back:

“If you think a f**k is funny, f**k yourself and save some money!”

‘Cause the only ones who really ‘make out’ from this crap are the lawyers.
