Woman marries ghost, tired of men
They go on dates together, sometimes have arguments, and even have a healthy sex life.
Well, maybe you should follow Amanda Teague’s lead by ditching living, breathing people and getting hitched to a ghost instead.
In some ways, the relationship between the 45-year-old and her husband Jack is fairly normal. After all, they go on dates together, sometimes have arguments, and have a healthy sex life.
Died 300 years ago
The fact that Jack died almost 300 years ago barely affects their marriage at all.
Amanda, a female Jack Sparrow impersonator, had five children with her human ex-husband, but said she has never been able to connect with anyone like her husband Jack.
Although she has never seen Jack’s physical form, Amanda said he was a Haitian pirate, who told her he is black with jet black hair, and was executed for his crimes in the 1700s.
She said: ‘We became really close, the more I learnt about him, the more I liked him.
‘One day he said to me ‘We can actually be together you know’ but I had never heard of an intimate relationship between a spirit and a human before.
The Kamba in Kenya marry ghosts
Among the Kamba, women also got married to ghosts! Sammy Muthini, who hails from the community, says some women used to get married to ‘men’ who died in early childhood.
Although such a woman never met her husband, she was made to believe he existed but died a teenager.
But since the family of the deceased was determined to have him remembered, an aunt was assigned the responsibility of looking around for a pretty woman, and seducing her on the deceased’s behalf.
