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

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.

Never will work. Age difference is too large. I know, they’re in love and don’t see it as an obstacle now, but....

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

Then she’s responsible for it’s upkeep?

The people who allow this should be in an asylum!

I don’t think the bridge would even hit that.

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

(Or "Lloyd"...)
