Woman Has Been Married to a Bridge for Over One Year Now
Jodie Rose's favorite term of endearment for her husband is “French devil”
Jodie Rose, who currently lives in Australia, has been married to a bridge in southern France for over a year now. Thus, the two tied the knot back in June 2013, on the 17th day of the month.Talking to Daily Mail, the woman explained that, during this first year of marriage, she did have some trouble wrapping her head around the fact that she and her husband live on different continents.
Then again, since their marriage is not recognized by authorities either in Australia or in France, it's not like she can move in with her sweetheart. Or have it shipped all the way to her home country, that is.
“I have struggled this year – coming back to Australia without him was tough, in particular the sense of displacement, from building a life on the other side of the world that I hoped we could live together,” the woman said.
“We both have a lot of growing and discovery to do, both on our own and on our shared path. This time apart has certainly helped our love grow stronger,” she added.
The bridge that this woman has been married to for over a year now goes by the name Le Pont du Diable. However, Jodie Rose much prefers calling it her “French devil.”
The bridge dates back to the 14th century, so some might argue that the age gap between it and its wife has high chances to put additional strain on the marriage. Still, Rose says she does not mind her husband's age.
Oddly enough, this woman sought long and hard for the perfect bridge to marry. She settled on Le Pont du Diable after falling in love with the music she managed to make when connecting microphones to the bridge's cables.
