A Florida math student is going to get married to a Tetris video game. Yes, this is real and no, their is no secret cheat code to finding love.
EGamingDesk covered the whole story in-depth:
The academic, who likes to be known as Fractal Tetris Huracan, has a rare condition which makes her have emotions and sexual feelings towards objects rather than fellow humans.
The condition, scientifically recognised as ‘objectophilia’, sees people form close relationships with objects and experience a deep sense of reciprocation based on the belief that objects have souls.
Recently, a famous case involved a woman who ‘married’ the Eiffel Tower. Erika LaBrie – a military veteran and prominent member of the US archery team – is now known as ‘Mrs Eiffel’.
Noorul also intends to take her Tetris’s name after a ceremony early next year and is currently planning her nuptials around playing Tetris for 12 hours each day – often using her tongue to move the shapes. It is believed to be the first case objectophilia involving a video game.
