Man marries his iPhone in Las Vegas, we're not joking...

Aaron Chervanak marries his iPhone in Las Vegas, which has now become a thing

You've probably checked your calendar to see if it's April 1st already, but it's not - so let's blow your mind by telling you that The Little Las Vegas Chapel has had quite the unusual ceremony, by marrying a man and his iPhone.

Aaron Chervenak had a commitment ceremony to "marry" his iPhone, with chapel owner Michael Kelly saying he has hosted other ceremonies with pets "getting married" or "weed weddings" where people profess their love for some 420, but the "iPhone marriage" was meant to be a statement on our dependence on mobile devices.

Kelly said: "[While] we really don't have many people [come in here] that marry inanimate objects. I think he wanted to explore [the question] 'can technology become human?' People are so connected to their phones ... and they live with them all the time. They're with them 24 hours a day. They go to sleep with their cell phone. They wake up with their cell phone, sometimes it's the first thing that they check".

Chervenak drove to Vegas from LA for the marriage, bringing a special case that included a "ring" that attached to his iPhone, so he could be closer to it during the ceremony (because you know, it's not close enough when it's in your hands).
