Taiwanese woman feels she is under pressure to get married, but hasnít yet met a man she wants to spend the rest of her life with, so she decided she will marry herself.

Chen Wei-yih, a 30-year-old office worker from Taipei, has posed for photos in white gown, hired a wedding planner and rented a banquet hall where she will celebrate with 30 friends and family members on November 6.

Age thirty is a prime period for me. My work and experience are in good shape, but I haven't found a partner, so what can I do?" Chen as saying.
"It's not that I'm anti-marriage. I just hope that I can express a different idea within the bounds of a tradition."

Women in Taiwan are not marrying as young as previously, and more are choosing to remain single as their economic status improves. The government is concerned about a drop in the birth rate and productivity.

I wonder what will happen when she falls out with herself. Get divorced Laughing

If she finds a suitable partner later on will she need to get a divorce before they can marry ? Rolling Eyes

As it's a same-sex marriage, should it strictly be called a civil partnership?

Ian.
