In Taiwan, a culture that prizes families and denigrates unmarried women, Chen Wei-yih has reached 30 years old with no prospects. Her answer? Marry herself. She has planned a wedding, complete with photographs, reception, and invitations to 30 of her closest friends. The only thing missing will be a groom. After the wedding, she is going to be taking a solo honeymoon to Australia.

She can have the party, she can have the reception, she can take the pictures, she can go to Australia, but the Bible says a marriage requires two, one man and one woman. We wish Chen Wei-yih the best and pray she will find someone with whom to share her life.
Mark 10:6-9 (NASB77) (6) "But from the beginning of creation, God MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE. (7) " FOR THIS CAUSE A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER, (8) AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH; consequently they are no longer two, but one flesh. (9) "What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate."
