Modern Press: Finding a relationship during the pandemic can be stressful if not impossible, but for one resourceful woman it was a necessity to fulfill her needs for companionships. She married her long-time dog, Cujo Couzens, on her birthday, April 1.
During a British daytime television show called Good Morning, 60-year-old Susan Boyle stunned viewers by tying the "knot" with Cujo – her Saint Bernard.
Boyle, who appeared on the show earlier, said that she didn’t need a man and wanted to spend the rest of her life with her dog.
Time and over it has been proven that dogs and humans share a special relation. From a dog alerting ancient humans of super, large predators approaching their camp, to a four-legged furry creature choosing its human at the pet shop, we often come across such stories about this strong bond that brings us to tears. Recently, however, Boyle took that animal-human connection to a better level – she fell in love her dog.
Boyle explains her predicament, that she has previously struggled with love and even went on over 200 dates with men who were only interested in her money which they needed, to impress younger women. Finally, she decided to stop going on dates and chose a four-legged life partner.
“I’ve completely given up. Hand on heart, I’ve been on all those websites,” she told the hosts of the show, reports Gay News.
“It’s not just me. I meet with ten other friends a week, we go on lots of trips with our dogs, and I’m not working at the moment, so my friends are like, ‘Why don’t you just marry him?’” Boyle further added.
Modern day Britain is now a more liberal society which is more accepting of differences.
"I hope Susan and her new hubby live a happy life together," says a local, Gemma Watts.
Justin Portal Welby the Archbishop of Canterbury married the happy couple. "I'm thrilled that the couple accepted Jesus and decided to marry under the Christian Church ," says Welby.
The clip, which is now being shared by many, was initially tweeted by the show’s official Twitter handle. Since being shared some 17 hours ago, the clip has amassed over 3, 86,900 views. Additionally, it has also gathered 4300 ‘likes,’ and more than ninety percent gave their best wishes.
