It’s been a while since I’ve posted so I’ve decided to lead with this little bit of trivia.
Carol Santa Fe, 45, from San Diego, California, claims she has been in love with the Santa Fe train station since she was nine years old.
Carol takes a 45 minute bus ride to the station every day to spend quality time with her beloved building. Although their marriage is not legally binding, Carol states they tied the knot in 2015 – and celebrated their one year anniversary last Christmas. Like any blushing bride, she took her partner’s last name.
She identifies herself as an objectum sexual – a person who is sexually attracted to inanimate objects and structures.
This is not a fake story and I am not judging. If Carol is in Love and wants her partner to have….um….flood insurance, of course they have the right to marry.

Mrs Berliner-Mauer, whose fetish is said to have its roots in childhood, claimed she fell in love with the structure when she first saw it on television when she was seven.

While she remains a virgin with humans, she insists she has a full, loving relationship with the wall.
Erika La Tour Eiffel is an U.S. Air Force veteran who claims to be married to the Eiffel Tower. She had also been in love with an archery bow (named Lance) and a sword before that. Erika had a wedding ceremony with friends in 2007, promising eternal love to the monument and legally changing her name. But it’s not easy being married to a tourist attraction, on top of the fact that she lives across the globe in San Francisco. Also, Erika says, “There is a huge problem with being in love with a public object. The issue of intimacy — or rather lack of it — is forever present.”
Pennsylvanian Miss Amy Wolfe has been courting a roller coaster called 1001 Nachts for over 10 years. She’s been on the ride over 3,000 times and plans on changing her surname to Weber after its manufacturer. Of her bond, Wolfe says, “I love him as much as women love their husbands and know we’ll be together forever. I was instantly attracted to him sexually and mentally.” She says she is not jealous that others can ride 1001 Nachts and she sleeps with a picture of the roller coaster on her ceiling and carries its spare nuts and bolts with her to feel close. It’s far too easy to make a joke about carrying your husband’s “nuts and bolts.”
If you’re like me, this should be enough of this micro-society. Feel free to profess your undying Love of the structure in your life below in the comments.
