Sophie Denton who married herself two years ago, has announced she wants a divorce because yet again she feels ‘let down by this patriarchal institution’.
So called ‘sologamist’ Denton claims she was always ‘of two minds about the whole idea anyway’.
The thirty one year old chef dismissed other advocates of ‘sologamy’ who renew their vows within a year of getting married. “People who stage events like these are simply attention seekers and self publicists”.
“But,” the Castlebar woman added, “I knew I wouldn’t fall into that category because I’m not doing this for the publicity? I’m doing it to give hope to other women who’re trapped in loveless marriages to themselves?”
Denton initially refused to comment on reports that next week, a man she once dated is to marry his penis.
However she later said “I think he’s making a mistake because he appears to have misunderstood what it is to look in the mirror and fall deeply fall in love with yourself, like I did?”
But then she added, “That was before it all fell apart, obviously…”
