The Wuxi China Metro Line is still under construction, but already some Wuxi Expats have become smitten with it. Recently, two Wuxi Expats living in the Hui Shan District of Wuxi have fallen in love with and proposed marriage to nearly the same section of the the #1 Metro line near their apartments.
The Hui Shan District Expats, German Sabias Gunther and Canadian Johnny Mahovilich, have exchanged blows in hopes of winning the #1 Metro line’s hand in marriage. Gunther wants to marry the section of the #1 Metro line from the Boston Glory Apartment complex to downtown Wuxi near Renmin Road. Mahovilich has proposed to the section of line from Yanqiao to the metro bridge near the Hui Shan Big Bridge.
It is the metro Bridge that has been the source of contention between the rival lovers. The bridge is between Boston Glory and Downtown Wuxi. It marks the end of the line that Mahovilich is in love with, but is also in the midst of Gunther’s line of affection. One week ago, Gunther was walking near the bridge and saw Mahovilich hugging a support column. Gunther became so jealous, he threaten to kill himself. Later that day, Mahovilich attacked Gunther. Mahovilich claimed that Gunther was "humping" one of the bridge’s support columns.
Gunther claims that the Bridge is his bride because he lives closer to it, and that he would be a polygamist if Mahovilich married the bridge. Mahovilich says that he proposed to the bridge first and has a copy of an application to the Wuxi Wedding Bureau to prove it.
Larry M. Maker, the Wuxi China Expatdom Marriage Commissioner, says the case will be a thorny one to settle. "First, we have to ask the Wuxi local government to allow Expats to marry their public works projects. If they don’t, the issue is mute. But if they agree, the Wuxi China Parliament is going to have to pass some legislation. Right now, there is no law covering a matter of this sort."
The Wuxi China Expatdom is the only jurisdiction in the world that allows humans to marry inanimate objects; however polygamy and bigamy are illegal for both humans and things.
