    As a young person, I'd just like to say I've never heard of this being done seriously, nor do I know of any of my peers who have done this.

    Thanks guys for clearing this up, I think..LOL

    scratchme1010..That is some sick stuff....There is some good in marrying yourself, if you divorce no alimony....

    The problem with marrying yourself (in the Governing Bodies (tm) ) eyes, is that you will sexually consummate a homosexual relationship. Therefore you would have to be disfellowshipped for being gay.

    If I married myself, I'd immediately know if I were lying if I said, "Not tonight, Sweetie, I've got a headache". Then all hell would break loose with one hell of an argument over conjugal rights.

    Will the Service Overseer let me read my own Publishers Record card so that I can make sure of my own spirituality and be a good 'catch' for myself in the organization?Maybe I should wait until I am appointed a Ministerial Servant so that I can make sure I am good 'theocratic' marriage material.If I break off the engagement with myself, will the Elders counsel me and take away my privileges?Must I wear a 'head' covering in front of myself when I pray?So many difficult and unanswerable questions. I certainly don't want to stumble anyone out of the organization for some minor misstep.I guess I'll just keep my mouth shut and just live together with myself. That's a 'secret sin' that the Elders would be hard catching me practicing.

    You will need a chaperone at all times until you get married.

    And forget driving anywhere by yourself...with just you and yourself in the car alone together, who knows what could happen....

    We laugh and joke about how the GB would handle this,some here may not be familiar with the JW world but all the comments here are not farfetched. We know the GB would come up with some ludicrous twisted scriptures why one can not marry themselves....
