When it comes to finidng a life partner, people are often at their hard luck. While conventional marriages are becoming a thing of past, there are people making headlines with their bizarre choice of life partners.
There have been self weddings, weddings with robots and people are even marrying ghosts! Now there’s a woman in the UK who married her dog on live television. Viewers of a popular television show, This Morning, were stunned as a woman tied the knot with the dog and the incident has since gone viral.
The 49 years old woman Elizabeth Hoad came to let audience know why she chose to tie knot with a DOG of all the people!

Why did Elizabeth marry a dog?
The woman had happily announced on the show that after four failed engagements, 220 dates and a range of unsatisfactory experiences in the search for love – men concealing wives, men her age pursuing younger women – she had given up on the male of her species.
“It was like we were meant to meet. He’s saved me and I’ve saved him. I was broken before I got him. I got a dog behaviourist when I first got him and she said he’d saved me,” she said.
How did people react?
While some dog lovers thought they could also consider spending their lives with their pets, they didn’t think it was very sensible or funny to actually marry a dog. While there were many who critized the TV channel as people felt it had “stooped to a new low” just to get views.

While the wedding was unique, it wasn’t the first time that a woman has married her dog. Earlier this year, a woman in the US had a symbolic marriage with her dog, Bernie.
But the ‘wedding’ was also intended for fundraising and to draw attention to organ-donor groups and local animal welfare shelters that lacked proper funding.
