Crazy Love!

We all have fallen in love. For some of us, love happens every other month. Some find that one perfect person to settle down with. Some even choose not to have any partners whereas others prefer to have multiple partners. In this day and age, the definition of love is dynamic.

But have you witnessed any strange relationships? I am not talking about the usual fights or quirks. I am talking of real, strange love.

This page lists down the strangest of love relationships (marriage included) where people have hooked up with the weirdest of partners--if you can call some of them as "partners" that is. Read on to know more.

1. This Woman Married The Eiffel Tower!

Erika always had a fetish for objects and was involved in other bizarre 'relationships' before but decided to get married to the Eiffel Tower after recognizing it as her true love. She even changed her last name to La Tour Eiffel!

She was infatuated previously with Lance, a bow that helped her in her archery. Erika has even claimed to have had a physical relationship with a piece of the fence!

The marriage was carried out and was attended by some of Erika's close friends.
