Sologamy is a system of marriage in which a person married himself or herself. It is predominantly seen as a show of self-love and affirmation for oneself, a celebration of securement in your own identity. Bad breakups, a desire to be contented in their own skins, are some of the reasons that make some people to practice this system of marriage.
One of the male basketballers who had once practiced this type of marriage before is Dennis Rodman.
Dennis Keith Rodman is a American professional basketballer.
During his professional basketball career, Rodman played for the Detroit Pistons, San Antonio Spurs, Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, and Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association.
Regarded as one of the greatest basketball players of all time, Rodman has earned National Basketball Association All-Defensive First Team honors seven times and won the National Basketball Association Defensive Player of the Year Award twice. He also captained the National Basketball Association in rebounds per game for a record seven years consecutively and won five NBA championships.
Apart from his career as a professional basketballer, Rodman was also a wrestler and actor. He once fought Hulk Hogan in the major event of two Bash at the Beach pay-per-views. He was also the first-ever winner of the Celebrity Championship Wrestling tournament. As an actor, he starred in the critically acclaimed famous American movies such as Double Team and Simon Sez.
He retired from the world of basketball ten years ago and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in the same year.
In 1996, 25 ago, after announcing himself fed up with women he had had relationship and broken up with earlier, Rodman then declared himself as bisexual and married himself. On that day, he dressed himself in a flowing wedding gown to launch his book titled, ‘Bad as I Wanna Be, in a New York Barnes and Noble’.
In his autobiographical book, Rodman stated that he started cross-dressing when he was young. For the promotion of the said autobiographical book, Bad as I Wanna Be, Rodman ostensibly got the inspiration from Howard Stern who had just done something akin to his when popularising his own book.
