Woman gets married three years after proposing to stranger as a joke

Every now and then, a story comes along that makes you believe something is meant to be.

Like how Llia Apostolou asked a stranger on Twitter to pretend to be her husband as a joke… And married him for real three years later.

She posted in 2014: ‘Are you a man? Can I borrow you for a wedding next weekend? Bonus points if you can source a baby that I can pretend is mine too.’

Phil Gibson replied taking the bait, saying he was available ‘with a suit and everything’.

She replied: ‘See you at the altar.’

After he said his grandma was excited to meet her, Llia replied: ‘That’s nice and all, but I didn’t invite her to my wedding. No, wait, THE wedding. Slip of the tongue.’

He didn’t actually go with her to her sister’s wedding, but they arranged to meet up for a drink that week, Metro UK reports.

Writing on her blog, Llia described how she ‘tried to swat away the feeling that I was heading towards a moment that would change my life forever.’

But as it turns out, that feeling was totally right.
