Eija-Riitta Berliner-Mauer married the Berlin Wall and has taken the name of Berlin Wall. "We have been together now for many years, spiritually if not physically" claims Berliner-Mauer, who believes objects have "intelligence, feelings, and are able to communicate" (The Independent, 2008). Berliner-Mauer, who claims to be married to the Wall since 1979, states that she is attracted to the Wall both emotionally and sexually (Berliner-Mauer, 2003).
"Like every married couple, we have our ups and downs. We even made it through the terrible disaster of 9 November 1989, when my husband was subjected to frenzied attacks by a mob. But we are still as much in love as the day we met. It may not be a conventional marriage, but neither of us cares much for conventions. Ours is a story of two beings in love, our souls entwined for all eternity."
