Woman marries Eiffel Tower
A woman with an unusual fetish for inanimate objects has married the Eiffel Tower.
Erika, 37, had an intimate ceremony in Paris, France in which she wed the landmark, watched by a small group of friends.
The woman has changed her name legally and is now known as Erika La Tour Eiffel.
Erika has a condition called Objectum-Sexuality or objectophilia which is feelings of love, arousal, attraction and commitment for an inanimate object.
Another woman, Eija-Riitta Berliner-Mauer has the same condition and has been "married" to the Berlin Wall for almost 30 years.
Erika says she too is fond of the Berlin Wall. She also says her first infatuation was with Lance, a bow, and she also says she has an intimate relationship with a piece of fence she keeps in her bedroom.
"I just don't understand how some people can bring someone into the world like a child - an object - and then not love them," Erika says.
