‘I married my best friend’

Platonic girlfriends exchange wedding vows, because they want to spend their lives together

Jay Guercio and Krystle May Guercio identify somewhere on the “asexual spectrum”. They met in 2012 at an LGBTQ centre in Long Island

Jay Guercio and Krystle May Guercio, who’ve been best friends for the last eight years, recently got married because they wanted to spend their lives together. What’s amusing is that both brides identify “somewhere on the asexual spectrum”. They act as a married couple does, but they don’t share a romantic or physical relationship.

Jay and Krystle met in 2012 at Long Island Gay and Lesbian Youth, an LGBTQ centre, and the two high schoolers became fast friends as they would dish on “toxic” exes and go on long walks, where they would talk about their dreams – specifically about becoming adoptive parents. “Our goals aligned so perfectly,” said Jay. Around the same time she met Eddie and over the next few months decided she would adopt him. Jay called her best friend Krystle, and they instantly decided to raise Eddie together.

They got married in September last year. Despite their untraditional marriage, having a traditional-style wedding-with wedding gowns, rings and vows they wrote themselves-was important to the pair. The two have shared a single kiss in their entire relationship, on their wedding day out of fear of “not being taken seriously.” Jay described the smooch at the altar as “really uncomfortable” and “something I wish I could take back.” Both wives are free to pursue flings outside of the marriage.

What the boob!
Colombian male model and brother-in-law get breast implants following stupid bet

Yeferson Cossio, is known for his pranks and edgy content, but most of his loyal fans were taken aback by his latest stunt. Last month, the young model and his brother-in-law, Jhoan López, made an interesting bet. Cossio had to reach the three million follower mark on Instagram in a certain period of time, and if he lost, he had to get breast implants.

If he made it, then López would have to get silicone implants. Cossio ended up reaching three million followers on Instagram sooner than expected, so it was López who had to get breast implants, but the popular influencer decided that it would be fun to share the experience with his friend, so they both went under the knife. Both  men removed the implants a few days later. 

Woof or Wolf?

A zoo in Xianning, Central China, has sparked outrage on social media after a visitor visiting the wolf enclosure found a Rottweiler resting inside. A zoo employee confirmed that there was indeed a dog in the wolf’s enclosure, but added that the animal was only kept there temporarily and was apparently a watchdog to prevent strangers trespassing into the yard. Online, reactions to the videos were mixed, with some people declaring themselves outraged by the zoo’s tactics, others joking that they were glad the dog wasn’t the wolf’s dinner.
