Women Wed Tree

Women Wed Tree

Brides Karen Cooper, left, and Dana Foglesong pose for a wedding photo in front of their “groom,” an ancient ficus tree they’ve vowed to cherish and protect.

Ficus bride Dana Foglesong gets ready to cut her wedding cake after marrying the Snell Park ficus tree in hopes of saving it.

The meeting to determine whether the (now-married) Snell Park ficus will live or die  is 4 p.m., Tuesday, at Fort Myers City Hall, 2200 Second St., in the 2nd floor conference room.

Clearly not all nuts fall far enough away from the trees. (At least they are married off now.)

Is it now Mr. and Mrs. Tree, or some other weird identity promoted by the State?

What if later the Mr. Tree wants a divorce from these nuts – what says the legal code?

Guess the hard work of actually lobbying and reasoning with government officials is replaced by a demeaning stunt abusing marriage vows.

Like snow in summer or rain in harvest, honor is not fitting for a fool. (Proverbs 26:1)

Assume the tree is male, isn’t polygamy a crime?

What if the tree falls and causes damage, can these two wives be sued?

Who is responsible for the siblings that grow-up from the seasonal nuts that become trees?

Does the tree get the women’s medical care to have the squirrels, (the real squirrels) removed?

If one of these women falls out of the tree from a wind storm and breaks an arm, is the tree going to be arrested for battery? Not too worry in Seattle, specifically King County Washington since it was women that married the tree, the tree being male is guilty by gender and will promptly be arrested and prosecuted.

Bonus Wisdom:

Marriage should be honored by all, … (Hebrews 13:4)

The, er, news article didn’t say who walked the brides down the isle.

Surely someone was eager, extremely eager to give away these brides!

(news-press.com)—After a site visit last December the city’s public works department OK’d the tree’s removal after the beautification board had been notified. In February, the board discussed spending $13,000 to cut down the sprawling tree and replacing it with smaller geiger trees.

Once neighbors got wind of those plans, the protests started: phone calls, posters, fliers and, most recently, Cooper’s Saturday wedding, at which she and several other white-dressed women vowed to honor and protect it before some 50 onlookers.
