To the editor:
My son received for Christmas the 2011 volume of "Ripley's Believe It or Not!"
True stories include: In 2009 a Tokyo man married his animatronic girlfriend who only exists in his Nintendo DS game in a public ceremony officiated by a priest and followed by a traditional reception, speeches, and a DJ.
In March of 2010 Korean citizen Lee Jin-Gyu married a pillow bearing an image of a Japanese pop icon.
Two months later Uwe Mitzscherlich of Possendorf, Germany, married his cat, using an actress as a proxy.
Animal shelter staff in Cambridgeshire, England, married two greyhounds, "Pete" and "Zoe". Zoe wore a bridal dress and a 3-tier cake was served.
After looking at the book, a definition for marriage seems like a good idea.
