Woman 'Marries' Her Dog After 221 Failed Dates And Four Broken Off Engagements

With the advent of online dating apps, you'd think that it couldn't be easier finding 'the one'.

Well, unfortunately for one woman, all dating has done for her is provide unhappy moment after unhappy moment.

So she decided to take matters into her own hands and 'marry' the one male in her life that will never leave her: her dog.


Elizabeth Hoad decided to she was over getting hurt by men and after 221 dates and four failed engagements, it was best if she just tied the knot with her golden retriever.

"It was like we were meant to meet. He's saved me and I've saved him. I was broken before I got him. I got a dog behaviourist when I first got him and she said he'd saved me," Elizabeth told British breakfast show This Morning.

She picked up Logan from a rescue shelter and he's been looking out for her ever since.

"It must be me. I dont know, I'll tell you what I think...the older men want the younger women and the younger man want the older women," she added.

When asked how the whole plan to get hitched came about, Ms Hoad said: "It's not just me. I have about 10 other friends, we go on lots of treks with all our dogs and one of my friends said 'why dont you just marry him'."

Yeah, why not.

The ceremony took place during today's episode of This Morning and viewers genuinely couldn't believe what they were seeing.

Alison Hammond led the nuptials and asked Elizabeth to say her vows to everyone watching.

"With my body I promise to take you for daily walkies and all that I have in my doggy treat cupboard I give to you, and all those cuddles on the sofa I share with you," Ms Hoad had to say.

While Elizabeth struggled to hold back tears of joy, it didn't seem to go down as romantically with other people.


One viewer wrote on social media: "What is happening with this programme? Sinking to new depths. This woman may actually be quite vulnerable, not to mention this poor dog. Come on team, do better."

Another added: "This is it, the pinnacle of humanity. All down hill from here."

"Honestly this programme has gone considerably down the toilet," wrote a third.


What happened to live and let live people? Well, we guess when it comes to humans trying to marry their animals a line has been crossed quite considerably.
