A 24-year-old Russian woman, Rain Gordon who says she is romantically attracted to objects has opened up about marrying a briefcase and says her new “husband” is the love of her life.
Rain Gordon said she has always felt captivated by objects, and this eventually grew into a romantic and sexual attraction.
She got married to the briefcase, who she named Gideon, in a ceremony in June this year, officiated by a pal.
The 24-year-old said that although she has had relationships with men in the past, she was always more attracted to objects than to people, and she was always happier in her relationships with objects.
The young woman first met her “future husband” back in August 2015 after purchasing him at a hardware store as a prop for a photoshoot.
She said that as time went on she felt herself falling in love with the briefcase.
Nursery school teacher Rain said her relationship with the briefcase became official a few months later in November 2015 and they finally tied the knot in June this year.
She said has always been attracted to inanimate objects and things eventually turned romantic with a briefcase that she now calls her ‘husband’. The 24-year-old got married to the briefcase in June this year, with a mate officiating the ceremony,
It was back in 2015 that Rain met Gideon in a hardware store and eventually fell in love. Rain said their relationship became official a few months later in November 2015, when they shared their first hug and kiss.
“Our spiritual connection and communication is shown telepathically. I hear him and he hears me, but from the outside it looks like a monologue. Gideon is more than a partner to me. He is a husband, a friend, and a mentor. His moral support helps me more than anyone. Sometimes I feel like Gideon knows me better than I do.”
She also admitted having relationships with men in the past, however, she was always happier in her relationships with objects. In 2017, she had a new relationship with a man, but said she could not connect with him in the same way as she did with Gideon.
Talking about this strange relationship, she said, “My fascination with objects began at the age of eight. From my childhood I believed that a soul is embedded in objects, as well as everything around us. I believe in animism, which means that there is life in everything. During my childhood and early teenage years, I fell in love with places such as the new shopping centre that opened in my city. I knew that it was wrong, and beyond the norms of society. I didn’t tell anyone.”
