Sologamy = marrying yourself. Apparently it's a growing trend. A way to say yes to yourself. And there are various companies (such as here and here) that will help you do it.

I don't buy into all the talk about marrying yourself as a form of self-affirmation, but I think there is some logic to the idea that if you know you're never going to get married to someone else — that's your life choice — that you should be able to get some gifts to celebrate your non-marriage. After all, those gifts can really help furnish an apartment or house.

How is such a marriage consummated?

I think that involves what is politely termed "performing a physical impossibility".

Wonder if you can file your taxes as married filing jointly and claim exemption for me, myself and I?

It could work well at a bar if people tend to try to "pick you up". You could then honestly say "sorry, I'm married".

And if you add the "to myself" at the end of that sentence, probably no one in that bar will ever try to pick you up again!

This is potentially useful for forestalling some types of identity fraud: impostor and green-card marriages, life insurance and credit fraud, and phony quit-claims on property. It might even give narcissists something they need but nobody else does.
Weird can be good!
