I've heard of tree huggers, but . . .

Richard Torres and Blushing Bride
Google Images

. . . few of them get serious enough to tie the knot! Richard Torres, however, has just married a tree:
Peruvian environmental activist Richard Torres . . . pose[s] for a photo during a symbolic marriage to a tree . . . . Torres invited [people] . . . to care for trees . . . . Torres says that he intends to take his message of saving the environment to other Latin American countries. (Yahoo News, 2014)
He's actually an infamous tree-polygamist and has probably married a whole forest by now. That's what made the above photo from Google Images possible - it shows an earlier wedding, and I needed a photo because the image at the Yahoo site was worthless.

Just like a polygamist's wedding vow . . .

You can have your fun now, but when the children arrive you'll be fighting over what kingdom to raise them as...

Exactly! Too many marriage proposals are made in a fit of passion, but a man who would marry a tree must be barking mad!
