Meet A Basketball Celebrity Who Married Himself, See Photos

Read and see photos below;

A system of marriage in which a person marries himself or herself is known as sologamy. It is primarily viewed as a display of self-love and affirmation or a celebration of self-assurance in one's own individuality. Some people follow this kind of marriage for a variety of reasons, including bad breakups and a desire to be satisfied in their own skin.

Dennis Rodman is one of the male basketball players that has previously performed this type of marriage.

Dennis Keith Rodman is an NBA basketball player from the United States.

Rodman was a member of the National Basketball Association's Detroit Pistons, San Antonio Spurs, Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, and Dallas Mavericks throughout his professional basketball career.

Rodman, regarded as one of the greatest basketball players of all time, has been named the National Basketball Association's All-Defensive First Team seven times and has won the Defensive Player of the Year Award. He also set a record by leading the National Basketball Association in rebounds per game for seven years in a row and won five NBA titles.

Rodman was also a wrestler and an actress in addition to his professional basketball career. He once competed in the main event of two Bash at the Beach pay-per-views against Hulk Hogan. He also became the first person to win the Celebrity Championship Wrestling event. He is best known for his roles in the critically acclaimed American films Double Team and Simon Sez.

He left basketball ten years ago and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame the following year.

Rodman announced himself bisexual and married himself in 1996, twenty-five years after declaring himself fed up with women with whom he had previously had relationships and broken up.

On that day, he wore a flowing bridal gown to the New York Barnes & Noble to launch his book, 'Bad as I Wanna Be.' Rodman revealed in his autobiography that he began cross-dressing when he was a child. 

Rodman allegedly received inspiration for the promotion of his autobiographical book, Bad as I Wanna Be, from Howard Stern, who had just done something similar when popularising his own book. In conclusion he married himself because he was fed up with brake ups from women he had prevoiusly dated.

Would you marry yourself in whichever situation you are?
