Brazilian Man To Marry His Goat
Former stonecutter Aparecido Castaldo, 74, has decided to end his days as a single man to marry his beloved Carmelita. The happy couple ...
The happy couple will walk, or trot, down the aisle on March 3 in Igreja do Diabo, or Devil’s Church, in the city of Jundiai, Brazil.
Aparecido has been in love with the pet for two years and says a goat has advantages over a human companion.
‘She doesn’t speak and doesn’t want money,’ says the father of eight children – four women and four men from four different marriages.
The ceremony is scheduled for midnight and will be followed by a big party on All Souls’ Day the following day.
Carmelita ate her first wedding dress but has been found another, said Aparecido.
‘Whenever someone says I am doing something wrong I reply the goat does not speak, ask for money to go shopping and doesn’t get pregnant – and she can’t talk.’
The ceremony will be conducted by a bishop who said the pair will not be consummating the marriage.
‘This is not the first goat he has, because he likes animals. He just needs a companion. There will be no intercourse between the two.’
