She's not crazy at all.

I thought feminism states that a woman without a bicycle is like a fish without a man... or something.

20 years from now, he'll be a hollow shell of a man... no better than an empty suit of armor.

The only three words in this article you need to read...."quagmire of crazy"

That ended up being way cooler than I thought it would.

And this story hasn't been made into a rom-com yet why?  Every single woman over 30 would watch this movie about 5 times in the theaters and then about 100 times when it came on Lifetime.

And now that her life long dream is fulfilled she no longer has any goals. Now its time to get fat and or screw all his friends.

Oh it will. Expect it in the next year or two.

If only he had walked up to her in his suit of armor and yelled "NI!", and just sauntered off...

Judging by the photo caption, she sounds rather stock-up.

/ smells like a PR stunt by the wedding planner who is telling the story and mentioned by name and website
 
2013-10-17 10:06:47 AM
The only way that story would have been better is if two guys had shown up wearing armor.

Three dudes and you really would have the makings of a rom-com.  Mama-Mia for the Me Generation.

Not just single women.  I did not know it was possible to wear out a DVD until my lovely and beautiful wife (who couldn't possibly know my Fark handle, uh, right Honey?) got a copy of Bride and Prejudice.
 
2013-10-17 10:09:43 AM
Oh, it's pretty subtle, but I think I've sussed it out....

The Melbourne woman's wedding planner Sarah McCawley from weddingwish.com.au says it was one of the most memorable weddings she has ever organised.

Even better: that's not just a wedding planner, it looks like a wedding-themed online shop which happens to currently do a " Relocation Clearance Sale - Ends midnight 1st November."  to quote its website.

If it ended with two of the three hacked to death, I'd go.

Who the fark would attend such a "wedding"? Here's what would happen in my household"

Wife: OMG we got an invitation to Rachel's wedding!
Me (in the shiatter): Really? Who is she marrying?
Wife: No one! Wow, she's throwing a wedding for herself!
Me: Hand me the invitation. We're out of toilet paper.

Don't speak for this single woman, please.  Rom-coms make me want to throw up.

Satan's Bunny Slippers: And women wonder why a large portion of the population think know they are crazy.




Women And Prescription Drugs: One In Four Takes Mental Health Meds

One of the more startling statistics in the report, which analyzed prescription claims data from 2.5 million insured Americans from 2001 to 2010, is that one in four women is dispensed medication for a mental health condition, compared to just 15 percent of men.

Antidepressant use especially is high among women, up 29 percent since 2001, the report showed, and anti-anxiety meds are used by women at almost twice the rate seen among men. In 2010, 11 percent of middle-aged women were on an anti-anxiety medication, while only 5.7 percent of men that age were. There's also a gender shift when it comes to the use of drugs for ADHD in adulthood: although the disorder is thought to afflict primarily young boys, slightly more women use ADHD medications as adults than men.

No sword-fighting.

And I have to echo sentiments from earlier comments: there's certainly nothing at all creepy in this story. Nope, nope, nope.

I do the same thing with bachelor parties.

Fixed that for married guys

There is a lot of cra-cra in this article.  I don't mind someone embracing the single lifestyle and celebrating it.  But what she did was akin to a sterile woman walking around with a doll, constantly trying to nurse it.

And the dude who feels like his only options are to cower away from her or show up in full armor, yeah, that's stable.

Ask yourself this - going by the (stock) photo, she's attractive, young, and if the clearly bogus story is to be believed as written, apparently can afford to throw a lavish, pointless "wedding." So, why is she single? Always ask yourself this question.

The story's a long, pointless advertisement for a wedding planner, nothing more.
 
2013-10-17 10:21:34 AM
After rereading the story and looking at her picture I agree that it's definitely a publicity stunt. She has looks and money.

This wasn't a problem until they got the right to vote.  Downhill from there.

No you don't need a man to be whole, but how about a ceremony that says you really think otherwise?

I never said I'd marry her. I know most Farkers think that once you bed a woman, you're in it for life.

yep.  I'm calling it.  FAKE.


The article has a blurb that says 'DO YOU KNOW (whatever her name was)? PLEASE CONTACT US!'

Which means they have no farking verification, they just ran a story because it was well written. Good farking job journalism.
