Florida woman marries giant Ferris wheel called Bruce
Despite same sex marriage being illegal in the state, Linda Ducharme is legally married to the clump of steel
A woman married to a giant Ferris wheel called Bruce has renewed her vows to the inanimate object.
Linda Ducharme legally married the theme park ride last year in Florida, a state in which same sex marriage is illegal.
The vow renewal, conducted by a non denominational priest who resigned from the Catholic Church over his role in the ceremony, was captured by US channel Logo TV.
“I tie you flesh to steel,” the priest says. Ms Ducharme then repeats the vow: “I Linda, take you Bruce, in this sacred marriage. I pledge to you my heart, my body and my spirit.”
Recalling the first time she encountered the ride, Ms Ducharme tells the channel: “I got this weird feeling I can’t explain. My heart was pounding as we went up the platform and got on the ride.
“I felt like I was being taken by this ride.”
“There’s not really a whole lot of difference in how we do things or how we spend time with each other,” Ms Ducharme says, in comparison to any other married couple.
Ms Ducharme is now in the process of getting Bruce restored so she can spend the rest of her life with the ride. “Bruce is my world, I think about him constantly, it just completely feels right when I’m with Bruce,” she adds.
