Oxford Student: Lulu Jemimah Gets Married To Herself

32-year-old Lulu Jemimah, an Oxfordstudent who was tired of being asked when she was getting married, married herself in front of 30 guests as witnesses.

The Oxford student who got fed-up of her family pressuring her on settling down with the right man, decided to stage a mock wedding and sent formal invites out to her nearest and dearest. Lulu Jemimah who said marriage is the last thing on her mind, spent just £2 for her taxi to the venue, and she got other things for free or as gifts from friends.

The lady who walked through the venue to the traditional wedding march and even gave a speech to her guests explaining the lack of a groom, admitted that her Ugandan parents are baffled by her decision – but said she feels it was the perfect commitment to herself and her studies.

The Oxford student who is having her masters in creative writing at the prestigious university, said;

‘I have a strong passion in life and I am committed to achieving my goals at becoming an academic.

‘But all my family wanted to ask me was when I planned to get married – which is very important back in Uganda – followed by when I would be having children and starting a family.

‘My father wrote my wedding speech when I turned 16. Every birthday my mother prayed for me and in recent years this has included a plea for a good husband.

‘But I just didn’t want to think about walking up the aisle. It’s not the thing which keeps me up at night.’
