FROM HAMSTER HOTELS TO A DEAD GROOM.

Today I bring you, not one but two, articles from France.

Firstly, I so want to stay in this hotel. Not too sure it would be any good for my hay fever but I'm willing to risk it.

A hamster hotel has opened in France ..... for humans! Like a hamster's cage, each room has a huge exercise wheel, water bottle, seed holder and bed filled with hay, giving guests the chance to get in touch with their inner rodent.

Think I'm joking? Click HERE.

And secondly ........

Not too sure what to make of this to be honest. My first reaction was how romantic. My second, is that legal? I always thought marriage was a 'contract' between two people. My third, wow, imagine the benefits! No arguing over whose turn it is to (add whatever it is you argue about), no fighting over the remote control for the tv, no ....... I could go on but won't. But overlying all of these was, how morbid.

A mother of two, Magail Jaskiewicz, 26, has wed her boyfriend, Jonathan George, a year after his death in a motorcycle accident, under a little-known section of French civil law that allows for POSTHUMOUS MARRIAGE

I agree. Marrying a dead man would erase all of the little day-to-day irritations. And you could be married and still DATE...however, I would miss the conversation, the laughing, and the companionship. Not to mention SEX, and so I won't mention it!

That hotel is just silly! Really.

And I bet there are a lot of people who would think they are already in a 'posthumous' marriage !

I got a bit confused because the article is listed below your comments. I couldn't figure out who she married until I read the article after your comments. Can you reorder that?

I'd sneeze myself to death at that hotel but what the hell, something new.

What an awesome hotel!

I'm slightly disturbed by the marriage thing, though...
