An American woman living in Indiana has taken the I Am Married to Jesus mantra a bit too seriously. The woman got wedded to “Jesus” in an elaborate ceremony recently.
“I Am Married to Jesus” is a slogan Christians use to imply that there have a strong connection with God and have committed their lives to live according to the Bible. However, 38 year old Jessica Hayes, a teacher, took it literally by organizing a wedding ceremony complete with a bishop who married her to Jesus, and family and friends.
Jessica Hayes wore a conservative white wedding dress paired with nude heels, and wore her shoulder-length hair in loose curls.
With this wedding, Jessica who claims to be a virgin, will not be eligible to marry anyone else or knowingly have sexual relations with anyone.
She says she will continue to live her normal life at home – only now she will not be able to get married to anyone else or to have sex for the rest of her life.
‘My students asked if they should call me Mrs. Hayes when I come back to school next week, and no, I’m still Ms,’ she said.
‘But I am married to Jesus.’
