Rag doll

Brazilian woman who ‘married’ a rag doll now has a baby with her ‘soulmate’

While it is often said that love is blind, a Brazilian woman gave a whole new meaning to this saying. The lady fell in love with a homemade rag doll, married her and now even shares a baby with her, The Mirror reported. For Meirivone Rocha Moraes, 37, she immediately fell in love with the doll, Marcelo, when her mother first introduced her to it. She made the doll because Moraes didn’t have a dance partner and often complained about it. “It’s because I didn’t have a forró dancer. I would go to these dances but I couldn’t always find a partner,” Moraes said.

But, once Marcelo entered Moraes’ life, he became much more than just a dance partner for her. Moraes quickly struck a deal with the doll and decided to get married. Now she insists her married life with Marcelo is wonderful and he is the man she always wanted.

Morae. who is head over heels in love with her husband, said he does not argue or fight, but always understands her. “Marcelo is a wonderful and faithful husband. He is such a man and all women envy him,” she added.

The couple married in a ceremony attended by around 250 guests. Recalling the day, Moraes said: “From the moment I walked down the aisle until the end it was just beautiful. Then we went to the wedding night with my husband Marcelo and we enjoyed our wedding night very much.”

Although Moraes may have found her prince charming in the doll, she admitted that her beau is quite lazy and doesn’t like to work. Even after their marriage, Moraes, being the family’s sole breadwinner, had to pay bills.

Now Moraes and Marcelo have added a new member to their family. The couple spent a love-filled honeymoon in Rio de Janerio, Brazil, after which they welcomed a doll on May 21. Moraes even shared the doll’s birth with around 200 people via live stream.

However, she said she was “really upset” when people called her life with her husband and baby “fake”.

“It makes me so angry. I am a woman of character. My father and my mother taught me to be honest, to be a good person and not to want to take advantage of anything,” she said, adding reported the Mirror.
