Of course, marrying well-known man-made objects is nothing new. In 1979, Eija-Riitta Berliner-Mauer married the Berlin Wall after having fallen in love with it when she saw it on TV as a child. She changed her last name, which now means Berlin Wall. She was horrified when the wall was taken down 10 years later and hasn’t returned.
In Her Own Words: “I find long, slim things with horizontal lines very sexy. The Great Wall of China’s attractive, but he’s too thick – my husband is sexier.”

She’s had relationships with other objects, but she committed to the Nacht as her main squeeze.
