A man in the US has taken his love for smartphone to a whole new level – by marrying it in a Las Vegas ceremony.
The wedding looked like a typical Las Vegas wedding, except for one deviation. The groom, Aaron Chervenak, wore a tux. The bride wore a protective case, Las Vegas Review-Journal reported on Monday.
Chervenak said “I do,” when the officiant at The Little Vegas Chapel asked, “Do you, Aaron, take this SMARTPHONE to be your lawfully wedded WIFE, and do you also promise to love her, honor her, comfort and keep her, and be faithful to her?”
The symbolic gesture to marry his smartphone appears to be a move by artist-director Chervenak to send a message to society. “People are so connected to their phones and they live with them all the time,” And that sounds almost like marriage.
“My smartphone has been my longest relationship. We connect with our phones on so many emotional levels. We look to it for solace, to calm us down, to put us to sleep, to ease our minds,” Aaron said in a YouTube video.
“To me, that’s also what a relationship is about,” he said.
