Erika La Tour Eiffel married the Eiffel Tower, as you might be able to tell from her new last name.   (YouWeirdTube)

(Newser) – Think Lee Jin-gyu, who recently married his pillow, was the first to say “I do” to an inanimate object? Think again. The Frisky reveals the stories of four more:

  • Erika La Tour Eiffel: As you might be able to guess from her new last name, this former US Air Force soldier wedded the Eiffel Tower—at a ceremony attended by friends—in 2007. Previous relationships include an archery bow named Lance, and a sword.

  • Eija-Riitta Eklöf Berliner-Mauer: She gave the phenomenon of falling in love with inanimate objects a name: Objectum Sexual. Her spouse? The Berlin Wall.
  • Miss Wolfe: This Pennsylvania woman says she’s attracted, “sexually and mentally,” to a roller coaster called 1001 Nachts that she’s ridden more than 3,000 times. She even carries around—wait for it—spare nuts and bolts from the ride.

This is nothing new to me....I married an inanimate object 15 years ago and divorced her five years ago.
