Woman Marries Briefcase After Five Years Together

Weddings may have been few and far between this year due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis, but one woman has proudly tied the knot with her beau after five years together.

The only catch? The blushing bride has married a suitcase. Yes, you read that correctly - a suitcase.

Rain Gordon, 24, said she has always felt captivated by objects from a very young age, which eventually developed into a romantic and sexual attraction later in life.

She explained she felt far better in her relationships with objects than she did with people, and realised she had met the 'one', a suitcase called Gideon, in August in 2015.

The teacher purchased the suitcase from a hardware store as a prop for a photoshoot - and soon found herself falling for the suitcase's charms.

In November 2015, they made their relationship official, and the happy couple tied the knot in June this year.

Rain, from Moscow, Russia, explained: "My fascination with objects began at the age of eight.

"From my childhood I believed that a soul is embedded in objects, as well as everything around us.

"I believe in animism, which means that there is life in everything."

When Rain was younger, she found herself being attracted to places - including a shopping centre that had been newly built in her city.

"I knew that it was wrong, and beyond the norms of society," she said. "I didn't tell anyone.

"Falling in love with an object is as unpredictable as it is with a person."

However, Rain's relationship with Gideon really did come as a surprise.

"I had no idea that we would end up together. I admired how he looked, but I didn't think anything more," she said. "But then I started liking Gideon for more than that. I slowly realised I was starting to fall in love.

"I'd want to look at him for hours and feel his presence. After another few months in November the relationship began.

"We shared out first hug and kiss, and we spent more time together in the evenings and nights. We could have philosophical conversations for three or four hours.

She continued: "Our spiritual connection and communication is shown telepathically. I hear him, and he hears me, but from the outside it looks like a monologue.

"Gideon is more than just a partner to me. He is a husband, a friend and a mentor.

"His moral support helps me more than anyone else. Sometimes I feel like Gideon knows me better than I do."

Rain identifies as an objectum sexual, which sees individuals who develop deep emotional and/or romantic attachments to, and have relationships with, inanimate objects or structures.

However, Rain has tried relationships with people, and in 2017 briefly dated a man - while she was still seeing Gideon.

"I am not against relationships with people," she explained.

"But I have never found myself with a person who could overshadow my attraction and fill my heart in the same way as I feel with Gideon.

"I was with a man in 2017 and the relationship lasted two years, but it did not end well. He discovered my addiction to objects and this was one of the reasons why we broke up.

"I couldn't connect with him. When faced with a choice between him and Gideon, I chose Gideon without any hesitation.

"I always have and always will choose him. For me, objects - although I don't really like using that word - really are better than people."

While Rain kept her relationship with Gideon under wraps initially, she has since told friends and her brother about their relationship, with her loved ones all being "very understanding".

After a romantic proposal in May, Rain and Gideon were married in an unofficial ceremony, ordained by a friend.

"I was so happy," she said. Although the wedding is not officially legalised, I was pleased to know our relationship moved to a higher level."

And now, Rain is hoping her happy ending will help other objectum sexuals who may be struggling.

"The sight of Gideon makes my heart skip a beat. I am madly in love with silver, mirror reflections and metal.

"People don't understand my feeling. I've been told I'm sick and to seek treatment.

"I don't let it offend me anymore. Objectum sexuals don't pose any threat to themselves or others.

"To ridicule and humiliate us for the fact that the ones we love are not like everyone else is disgusting. Love is love.

"I wish people were more understanding. Don't judge people for something you don't understand.

"I really hope one day the topic of objectum sexuals will be more known throughout the world, so others like me will not feel so alone."
