As we near the end of 2017, one would hope that all the weirdness would cease. But, it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
A British woman, Amanda Liberty, 33, is currently engaged to a 90-year-old chandelier. She calls the chandelier Lumiere.
Liberty first saw the chandelier on eBay in 2016. She told The Sun it was love at first sight, “As soon as I saw Lumiere on eBay, I knew immediately that she was the one for me and it was love at first sight. She was based in Germany and although I knew it would be tricky to get her home, I knew I needed to find a way to make her mine. I couldn’t stop thinking about her and how beautiful she was — she has such a beautiful shape and I could feel really amazing energy coming from her.”
It took 6 days for Lumiere to make her way from Germany to the UK, but Liberty said once she was settled, their “relationship just went from strength to strength.”
Like any hopeless romantic, Liberty proposed on Valentine’s Day, “Last Valentine’s Day I proposed to her, to signify our long lasting love. I hope at some point we will have a commitment ceremony — I haven’t been engaged before so it’s very new and exciting!”
Liberty told The Sun, “you can’t help who you fall in love with.” Which is actually evidenced by her last name.
You aren’t ready for this.
Liberty’s first relationship was with a drum kit when she was 14, but she eventually fell in love with… the Statue of Liberty. She’s traveled to New York City six times to be with the monument and changed her name in 2010 to show her commitment.
She also said, “I’m not hurting anyone by entering into a relationship with them, I am simply just following my heart.”
Go home, 2017. You’re drunk.
