They say you can not love someone until you love yourself, or it is very important to love yourself first before doing anything. Yes, it is very important to appreciate yourself to progress ahead in life. But this Brazilian man took this concept to a whole different level. He got married to himself!
In November 2019, Dr. Diogo Rabelo was engaged to Victor Bueno but they split up this year. Hence on 16th October, 2020, Diogo married himself. He had a perfect beach wedding which obviously started with him walking down the aisle with a bouquet. Many of his friends and family were there for the ceremony. While reciting the vows, he promised to take very good care of his better half, which turns out to be him only.
Around 80% of his original guests turned up. The wedding was just like any other wedding, there was a photoshoot, everyone was smiling and dancing and much more! Diogo proves that seeing your own worth is not at all measured by the presence of someone else in your life, you can very well do that alone.
Diogo explained, “I analyzed the situation for a month and decided that I had to appreciate and love myself. I kept the ceremony and 40 of my 50 guests came. The message I wanted to send to people with this marriage of mine is not that of a victim, I do not depend on a marriage to be happy. I do want to marry someone else, and I want to have children, but my happiness cannot depend on that.”
Diogo concluded by saying, “Today is one of the happiest days of my life, as I’m with the people I love the most in this life, celebrating what could be a tragedy, but I made it a comedy.”
Well, honestly there is a lot to learn from Diogo, his wedding pictures are just amazing! He looks happy, he cried while reciting the vows and he was so excited while walking down the aisle! This just sounds like an emotional movie.
