- A woman in the UK married her rented house
- She calls “him” Norman, and says “he” looks after her

She made the desperate “wedding act” after she only managed to raise -through crowdfunding- £56 of the £400,000 she needs to keep the house, which was recently put on the market.
Deborah Hodges laments she will be forced to live in a cramped space with her four children if she has to move away. She does have some income, due to the fact that she spent £2,800 on presents for her kids on Christmas.

Hodges makes it clear she is single, but that she does have a man –the house, which she calls Norman– in her life. “He looks after us. I think houses do have spirits sometimes,” she says.
Hodges, who calls herself an artist, also made a video with which she hopes to get her message out:
