Woman marries the Eiffel Tower

Erika La Tour Eiffel has an object fetish. She falls in love with inanimate things. She decided to marry the Eiffel Tower. Last week I read a woman called Eija-Riitta Berliner-Mauer (which means 'Berlin Wall), who claimed she was married to the Berlin Wall for 29 years. And when they pulled the wall down, it broke her heart. It was like she lost a loved one. I thought that this objects fetish was something rare. Apparently not...

Erika La Tour Eiffel, 37, a former soldier who lives in San Francisco, has been in love with objects before. Her first infatuation was with Lance, a bow that helped her to become a world-class archer, she is fond of the Berlin Wall and she claims to have a physical relationship with a piece of fence she keeps in her bedroom.

But it is the Eiffel Tower she has pledged to love, honour and obey in an intimate ceremony attended by a handful of friends. She has changed her name legally to reflect the bond. (Telegraph)
