Love at First Swim
British woman marries Israeli DOLPHIN.
Millionare rock concert producer Sharon Tendler,41, married a dolphin she has been visiting for years in the Israeli resort of Eilat. (Picture of actual ceremony left). Tendler, had been visiting the city on the Gulf of Aqaba two or three times a year to spend time with her 35-year-old underwater sweetheart, Cindy. And Cindy is a male dolphin...go figure.
Sharon Tendler said, "I came to the dolphin reef, when it first opened and the first dolphin that ever came to me was Cindy and at that moment, I fell in love with him. I have been coming back for 15 years."
Just before Christmas, Tendler finally asked the dolphin's trainer for the mammal's dorsel fin in marriage. The wedding took place Wednesday, December 28th. Sharon wore a white dress and pink flowers in her hair and walked down the dock to where the groom was waiting in the water. Cindy's grooms-dolphins swam nearby as well (probably looking for human sugar mamas of their own). Shocked spectators watched as woman and dolphin exchanged vows of some sort. She kissed him, to the cheers of the crowd and then, after the ceremony was sealed with some mackerels, Sharon jumped into the water so she could swim away with her new husband. I wonder if Sharon was able to catch the mackerel in her mouth?
"We've got a prenuptial agreement - that he's allowed to go off with all the other girls but when I come back it's only me," she told an applauding audience. "He will still play with all the other girls there," she said of their agreement.
This is a great place to add some colorful commentary, but come'on...does this story really NEED that?
"It's not a perverted thing. I do love this dolphin. He's the love of my life," she said Saturday.
Sharon, dear, you DO need help.
"I made a dream come true. And I am not a pervert," Sharon added.
Sharon, dear, yes you are. You are perverted. You whispered "I love you" into a dolphin's blowhole...yes, Sharon, you are perverted.
"Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore Cod hath joined together, let not man put asunder." She might not let man put their marriage asunder, but keep her away from the sea lions.
