In an almost admirable act of desperation - far outstripping the average cat lady - women in

Far less desperately, and with more realistic standards, a comely Indian lass has married the neighborhood cobra. While the snake declined to appear for the ceremony – a copper snake was provided as a facsimile groom – the unnamed cobra always appears for his bowl of milk, and has never harmed his new wife, thus suggesting that this will be a marriage free of domestic violence. The bride’s family has built a new home for her, situated near the anthill occupied by the groom. This is a modern twist to a unique love story, following in the path of many committed and monogamous, yet not cohabitating couples, who find that ‘his and her’ residences help to keep the passion alive and saves on broken crockery.
Not to be beaten in the romantic stakes, a gay Muslim made this enticing offer in an online dating forum:
"Hi, I am looking for a lesbian girl for marriage. I am gay but I would like to get married because of pressure from parents and society. I would like this marriage to be a 'normal' marriage except for the sex part, please don't expect any sexual relationship from me.”
For some, this describes a perfectly normal heterosexual marriage, in all respects. No-one will suspect that anything is amiss. We wish him well.
