Till death do us part? An unusual wedding ceremony was held in the southern resort town of Eilat on Wednesday, as Sharon Tendler, a 41-years-old Jewish millionaire from London married her beloved Cindy, a 35-year-old dolphin, Israel's leading newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported Thursday.
The groom, a resident of the Eilat dolphin reef, met Tendler 15 years ago, when she first visited the resort. The British rock concert producer took a liking to the dolphin and has made a habit of traveling to Eilat two or three times a year and spending time with her underwater sweetheart.
"The peace and tranquility underwater, and his love, would calm me down," the excited bride said after the wedding.
After a years-long romance, Tendler decided to embark on the highly unusual path of tying the knot with her beloved dolphin. Last week, she approached Cindy's trainer Maya Zilber with the extraordinary request.
Zilber accepted the challenge and "talked the idea over with the fellow," who apparently consented.
'I'm not a pervert'
And so on Wednesday afternoon, the thrilled bride, wearing a white dress, walked down the dock before hundreds of astounded visitors and kneeled down before her groom, who was waiting in the water.
Cindy, escorted by his fellow best-men dolphins, swam over to Tendler and she hugged him, whispered sweet nothings in his ear, and kissed him in front of the cheering crowd.
After the ceremony was sealed with some mackerels, Tendler was tossed into the water by her friends so that she could swim with her new husband.
"I'm the happiest girl on earth," the bride said as she choked back tears of emotion. "I made a dream come true, and I am not a pervert," she stressed.
Tendler said she and her newly wed husband will probably spend their wedding night bowling.
"But what kind of children would they have?" one of the children in the crowd asked his father.

When asked by a reported if the dolphin was male or female she replied "Why Male, of course. What do you think I am, A QUEER!!?"
See, I knew legalizing gay marriages would be the gateway to stuff like this.
Anyone who feels the need to make such a statement ... is a pervert.
Are they going to SeaWorld for the honeymoon?
I wonder how the gay marriage lobby feels about this one?
It was not in Massachusetts?
What an idiot! This women is way out there.
Perversion is now IN YOUR FACE!
But hey, don't you dare be critical of it.
Won't last long, different religions.................the dolphin's not kosher........
Another one for the "Rick Santorum was right" file.
Sounds like, IMHO, she knows otherwise...or why have to say it?
I know of no one, who after a normal, traditional marriage, has to think or say such things to rationalize what they have done.
LOL. I don't care who you are, THAT's funny!
