5. Amy Wolfe and 1001 Nacht
Amy Wolfe is jealous each time someone else rides her lover.
Stop right there! We are not talking nasty bedroom details here. Amy’s unusual love interest is a rollercoaster called 1001 Nachts (nights), for which she fell after riding a record 3,000 times.
How is that even remotely possible? Scientists say “yes, ” and they even have a name for it – objectum sexuality. Amy was most likely a child that faced difficulties while trying to get along with the others, not to mention finding a romantic partner. The ride offered her thrills never experienced before, thus explaining the unnatural connexion.
How is Amy cherishing her love? She has a photo of the fairground ride on her bedroom wall and keeps nuts and screws close by. Amy even contacted Park management and proposed.

Can you imagine the ridicule this odd couple faces each day? We don’t doubt 1001 Nachts has a heart of steel. The one we worry about is Amy.

6. Sanele and Helen
Early on the list, we had an old marrying a little girl. What if we tell you it can also go the other way around?
Look no further than Africa for the next couple that defies all taboos the modern world has regarding romantic relationships. Not only did the marriage was arranged and paid for, but it took place before the eyes of the real husband.
8-year-old Sanele married 61-year-old Helen in a ceremony that went by the book. The two exchanged rings and even shared a kiss, all under the eyes of Helen’s man.
The boy wanted the ceremony to be a way of cherishing and pleasing his ancestors. Don’t even attempt to understand the backbone of this tradition. South Africans might have imported the white wedding ceremony, but their tribal beliefs still thrive.
Check out the next odd couple! It doesn’t get weirder than that!
7. Liu Ye and Liu Ye
You might be over-obsessed with your person and still be light years away from what Liu Ye did.
The 43-year-old Chinese from Zhuhai married himself in a ceremony that raises a couple of interesting paradoxes. The ceremony in which he “exchanged vows” with a cardboard copy of himself wearing a traditional Chinese wedding gown might be the most absurd thing ever.
Do you count as gay if you marry yourself? How did the Chinese Communist government allow such an abomination to ruin the country’s reputation as extremely ethical and conservative?
“There are many reasons for marrying myself, but mainly to express my dissatisfaction with reality. This marriage makes me whole again.” That was Liu’s toast held in front of 100 guests.
Can you imagine the audience trying to act casual as Liu Ye invites himself to dance and kisses the lifeless cardboard? Love can be incredibly strange sometimes.
Ready for another odd couple? This one is guaranteed to shock you.
8. Ahmed Muhamed Dore and Safia Abdulleh
Africa is home to some of the oddest couples, and the explanation is simple.
People here have nothing against young girls sold into marriage. It doesn’t matter if prince charming is competing against a creepy old grandpa. The winner is the one with the higher offer (or with the largest number of cattle in his herd).
Ahmed Muhamed Dore was 112 years old when he married Safia back in 2009. The Somali elder already had five wives at that time, and the 17-year-old was a prized addition to his collection.
While some are happy that age was not a barrier against love, others tend to see the whole picture. Marriages are often just business, and the fate of thousands of young girls depends on luck.
Coming up is another couple that keeps a ladder close-by.
