30-year old gets hitched for the 48th time

(WDAY TV) - It's not the typical number of marriages, but one single 30-year-old is getting hitched for the 48th time!

By: WDAY Staff Reports, WDAY

Her name is Maria Yoon and she's on a quest to get "pretend" married in all 50 states and two territories.

The artist "Maria the Korean Bride" got married in a mock performance to a Butte, North Dakota groom. Maria's advice to other single girls facing pressure to get married: Follow your heart and take your time.

"I watched her Facebook page and got on her website and was reading into it and I realized this is for real, and she really does have a point to prove, I'd like to be a part of it."

"So I just want to make it clear that I'm not making a mockery of matrimony or weddings in any ways. I think it's something that's really sacred, it's really important. I just want people to stop and think about it, before jumping in."

Yon is to do this in all 50 states. She's now traveling to South Dakota, Wyoming and Idaho.
