Amanda Teague, an woman from Ireland has a bizarre claim.
Amanda Teague made headlines recently after news got viral that she married the ghost of a 300-year-old Haitian pirate, Jack Teague. She claims their spiritual relationship began in 2015, while she was lying in bed at home in Drogheda, Ireland, and sensed his presence near to her.
After six months of continued contact with the ghost of Jack, she developed feelings for him and the two made the plan to make it official for each other.
Since marrying the dead or spirit of a person is not recognised in UK or Ireland, Teague re-married her Haitian pirate ‘spirit’ husband on a small boat in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean in October 2017. The weather was stormy and waves rocked the vessel violently. The divorced mother of four—who worked as a Jack Sparrow impersonator in Ireland—said “I do,” in a white lace gown and veil. And someone else said it back, but it wasn’t the man she was about to marry. He was already dead.
Speaking to Newsweek, Teague confirmed that their wedding was similar to one at a registry office, in the sense that it was short, small, and functional. The couple held another wedding in October 2017, which involved a more comprehensive group of family and friends to better celebrate their union.
“We sailed to International so that we could marry legally. It’s not legal in Ireland or UK, so we spoke to lawyers and did it officially” Teague said.
She says she is the first person to marry a ghost in legal way by the help of lawyers to bypass the rules.
A registrar was present at the wedding who registered their marriage, Jack Teague gave consent through a medium that was independent of her. Teague insists her husband’s physical existence was the inspiration for the fictional character “Jack Sparrow” who features in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise.
