    BROOKLYN (CBS) - If the secret to a happy marriage is finding the right person, we can all stop looking. At least, according to "sologamists." They're part of a growing relationship trend, in which people are tying the knot to themselves.

    Erika Anderson is one of them.

    “I would describe it as women saying yes to themselves,” Anderson said. “It means that we are enough, even if we are not partnered with someone else."

    In many ways, the 37-year-old bride looked like any other on her wedding day. She wore a white dress and had a bouquet. Anderson looked stunning with the Brooklyn bridge and New York City skyline behind her.

    Except when she walked down the aisle, no one was waiting for her. That’s just the way she wanted it.

    Anderson said she grew tired of people asking why she was still single. So, in front of family and friends she married herself.

    Self-marriage—or sologamy—is growing. Partly because it’s popping up in pop culture, like when an episode of ‘Sex and the City’ floated the idea.

    Now, the movement has gone global and companies are trying to capitalize.

    “Marry Yourself” in Canada offers consulting and wedding photography. There’s also IMarriedMe.com, launched by San Francisco man Jeffrey Levin. His site offers sologamy ceremony kits, which includes a wedding band, daily affirmation cards and vows.

    "I think it's increased over the years, and it's something that's becoming more understood and more accepted,” Levin said.

    Anderson married herself to celebrate independence and believes others should, too.

    "You're worth it!" Anderson exclaimed.

    Anderson just celebrated her one-year anniversary with a solo trip to Mexico. She said even though she's married to herself, she's dating and open to marrying another person.

    After all, in the eyes of the law, self-marriage is not a legally binding union.

    The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.

    Well, crap, if it's not a legally binding union, I couldn't claim my spouse as a dependent and we couldn't file jointly.

    It used to be you had to get a license from the state to have children. WTF is this exactly, a license to masturbate?

    A "solopolyamorist." Bwahaha! I think you've won today's interwebz.
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    I can just imagine somebody committing suicide over having cheated in such a relationship.

    HB is Orthodox and won't do this sort of thing. Nor does he go to bath houses. But the good news is you now have an option if eduardo leaves you for good and you can't find another boy. ~hugs~

    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    I'm not married but I don't think I'd go so far as to marry myself.

    Should I ever get divorced, I wouldn't want to lose the dog.

    I wonder if she's going to cut herself off now that she's married.

    With a few notable exceptions (Glenn Greenwald, Ben Swann, etc.) you're being trolled by just about every "news" article/story.

    It's just a matter of degree ...
