Self-Marriage On the Rise

For the record, if you invite me to your self-marriage, I’m not buying you a dang gift.

Self-marriage is a small but growing movement, with consultants and self-wedding planners popping up across the world. In Canada, a service called Marry Yourself Vancouver launched this past summer, offering consulting services and wedding photography. In Japan, a travel agency called Cerca Travel offers a two-day self-wedding package in Kyoto: You can choose a wedding gown, bouquet, and hairstyle, and pose for formal wedding portraits. On the website I Married Me, you can buy a DIY marriage kit: For $50, you get a sterling silver ring, ceremony instructions, vows, and 24 “affirmation cards” to remind you of your vows over time. For $230, you can get the kit with a 14-karat gold ring.

    Can’t wait until we see one of these weirdos try to divorce themselves.

    Probably be a whole new special rights cause for liberals.

  2. Le Roi du Nord

    Pretty judgemental of you seeing as you are all for:

    Free minds

    Free Society

    And name calling as well, oh my !


  3. Kevin Scheunemann

    Free Society includes being able to call out weird, anti-social, behavior.

  4. Le Roi du Nord

    And it also allows me to say without hesitation that you are a judgemental bigot.  Works for all.

  5. Kevin Scheunemann


    Are you into the “self marriage” movement?

    Instead of “judgemental bigot” (which is very judgemental in your part) I prefer “someone that discerns properly between good and bad social behavior.”. Thanks for improving your tolerance for those in society with courage to discern good and bad behavior.

  6. Le Roi du Nord

    As always, you are the official arbiter of good and bad behavior.

  7. Kevin Scheunemann


    Well, that gets to the “Free Minds” problem we have in this society.

    Liberalism has sought to dismantle every social barrier to every bad, evil, and sickening behavior.

    Those that call for a halt of that embrace and open encouragement of moral decay are labeled “bigots”, “judgemental” and claim they need a “safe space” as a result….that is not debate in a free minds or free society context.

    You have just proved why my conservative message is so popular. Many want to stop your slouch embrace toward open perversion

    Not a winning message.

  8. penquin

    It is like putting sweaters on dogs or sprinkles on ice cream – it’s pretty silly & kinda useless but really doesn’t do any harm…and surely isn’t anything perverted or sick about it.

  9. Kevin Scheunemann


    If it remains an innocuous, we can all laugh at the weirdness…I buy your argument.

    However, in an era where a man can say he feels like a women and go in a women’s bathroom, how do we know some liberal will not push this self marriage thing to be legal through a marriage license?

    Then the invariable push will be for benefits, for you and you, as your own spouse.  After all, why should single people, who are self-married, only get 1/2 the benefits of regular married people?

    I can already see the argument brewing in the warped, perverted, reality that is liberalism.

  10. penquin

    With that in mind, is it safe to assume you fear anything new/different?

    Not trying to be petty nor snarky…for real…just wondering about your pov. After all, anything/everything can be warped. perverted, and twisted (Rule 34)…so shouldn’t everything be feared?

  11. Kevin Scheunemann

    I would stipulate this is its own perversion, as it stands today.

    The perversion progresses because very few are willing to ridicule utter nonsense these days.

    I only ask….keep one’s perversion to oneself…stop flag waiving it.

    If there is flag waiving of perversion, expect some ridicule when it comes to bad behavior.

  12. Le Roi du Nord

    I only ask, …keep your religion to oneself…stop flag waiving (sic) it.

    And I’m OK with waiving perversion as long as you are…

  13. Kevin Scheunemann


    The problem is: you keep flag waiving your liberal religion, in which open embrace of perversion is a commandment, high taxes and onerous regulations are gospel, and abortion is a sacrament.

    Practice what you preach.

  14. Le Roi du Nord

    Before anyone, me included, can take you seriously you need to learn that the word you are struggling with is spelled “waving”.  I gave you a heads up and you missed it in your haste to tell more lies.

    I do. And do it without religion as a crutch.

  15. Kevin Scheunemann


    You caught me on the spell check auto correct on that. Clearly, I did not want to imply you relinquish perversion, but embrace perversion openly in the liberal religion.

    Thanks for swatting that gnat, while you lie down with the liberal religion, the moral equivalent of the floor of a barnyard.

  16. Le Roi du Nord

    Hint:  Read what you write and run it through a brain check before you push the post button.  Odd that spell check/auto correct don’t appear when I post here…   And no, not much of what you lecture us on is clearly stated.

    Nope, you are lying again, that religious crutch is all yours.

  17. Kevin Scheunemann

    So I should retract thanking you for swatting that little gnat?


  18. Le Roi du Nord

    A “thanks” from you is pretty weak tea.  I’d prefer you just appreciate rather than condemn those with differing viewpoints.

  19. Kevin Scheunemann


    Where did I “condemn”?

    Remember I am willing to “discern” between good and evil.

    Your statement gets to the basic problem of liberalism.   Unwilling to discern and denounce evil.    Let’s test whether you are willing to embrace evil (vs. “condemn”).

    1.) child molester?

    2.) rapist?

    3.) Marxist muderer?

    4.) Nambla?

    5.) Bill Clinton’s cheating on Hillary?

    Are you unwilling to “condemn” any of these as wrong?   (If you are, it seems you are willing to discern…I mean “condemn” evil.)


  20. Le Roi du Nord

    And you, and you alone are able to make that discernment because only you know the truth.

    As I have told you multiple times, if someone is guilty of a crime, then charge them, bring them to trial, convict them and sentence them.  If they are only guilty of differing with your world view then we will forever disagree.  As to the above, I agree, that if proven guilty of a crime, penalize them.  But not if their only fault is they disagree with Kevin.

    I hope you are equally outraged by indiscretions similar to your #5 committed by such conservative notables as Cheney, Limbaugh, Trump, etc…

  21. Kevin Scheunemann


    Just pointing out you have no qualms about condemning anything I say.

    It’s clear your “discernment” filter is deactivated at the alter of tolerance. The alter of tolerance tends to let evil thrive because the liberal religion considers denouncing evil worse than the evil itself.

    Maybe you should consider not denouncing my “discernment” until I am found guilty of it by a court?

    (Sounds like you will give a charged criminal more deference when it comes to your judgementalism…..

  22. Le Roi du Nord

    Here in the US folks are innocent until proven guilty.  I know you want to change that but that is a stretch even for you to accomplish.

    You gonna blame the latest malapropism on auto correct/spell check?

  23. Kevin Scheunemann


    You scrutinize and denounce my typos more than you would a criminal act or latest liberal advocacy of perversion.

    Your social priorities seem like they are drippings from a blender on puree.

  24. penquin

    “Odd that spell check/auto correct don’t appear when I post her”

    Google Chrome does it everywhere I go…



  25. penquin


    #1 is definitely wrong, tho the whole issue of mental illness makes the “evil” thing kinda murky to me….ain’t saying being literally sick-in-the-head makes it right, not at all! For example, ain’t got no problem about putting down a rabid dog but I ain’t gonna label Cujo as evil ’cause he caught a disease.

    #2 all depends. Guy violently forcing himself on another is for-sure evil, but I wouldn’t say that an 18 year old high school student having consensual sex with his 17 year old girlfriend is.

    #3 is a legal issue and I don’t beleive that breaking the law in-and-of-itself is considered evil. Also, do you mean a Marxist getting murdered or a Marxist committing murder?

    #4 may be a silly little hobby, but dressing up like Marlon Brando surely isn’t evil. (If you’re instead referring to the men who like boys, that’s covered by #1)

    I don’t know enough about #5 to judge it as wrong or not (Is it still considered “cheating” if he had permission?) tho if the rape allegations are true then my answer for #2 applies.


    Just to be clear, do you personally consider everything you listed as “evil”? It appears that, in your eyes, there isn’t any questions nor nuances to be had….things are either good or evil with nuttin’ in between, and all of those you listed are evil. Is that a fair summary of your stance? If not, please clarify….thanks.


  26. Kevin Scheunemann


    The main issue I was driving at: Guys like Nord make denouncing the perversion completely intolerant for those sticking up for victims of any of those subjects.

    However, his intolerance for those rejecting perversion/evil/bad behavior ends up encouraging and normalizing such behavior…..many times helping to create more victims. Problem of liberalism in general.

    It’s Streep disease….giving us all moral lecture about Trump’s alleged intolerance while she gives a standing ovation to child rapist fugitive Roman Polanski.

  27. Le Roi du Nord


    Great points.  Keep up the good work.

    Google Chrome on my Mac never interferes with my choice of spelling.  Could be the different in machines .  Regardless, it probably wouldn’t pick out the difference between two words in common usage.

  28. Jason

    >”different” in machines

    Always the pride before the fall on anal retentive basement dwellers calling out others on spelling mistakes. Maybe you should review and filter what you type before you click “post comment”… ass.

  29. Jason

    Here’s some advice for you Basement Troll…. “Hint: Read what you write and run it through a brain check before you push the post button.”

  30. Le Roi du Nord

    Thanks for pointing out my intention error.  Spell check/auto correct doesn’t correct for tense.  Or for the difference between wave and waive.  Great way to prove my point.  Thanks.

  31. Jason

    You are making stuff up again…… God’s gonna get you……
