The one person you need to marry [VIDEO]

Love finds you when you marry yourself, for better or worse

You can only love yourself the way you want someone to love you.

One of the major reasons marriages fall apart is that spouses cannot give to each other what they don't have.

The feeling of emptiness and depression after a split are existent because you aren't with the one person you truly need to be with - yourself.

Love finds you when you marry yourself, for better or worse, then acceptance of the one you are with comes next. Marrying yourself saves you a lot of future heartache because you can't love someone when you don't love yourself.

Tracy McMillan a TV writer behind the hit series 'Mad Men', gives a 13-minute TED Talk where she explains what marrying yourself is really all about.

McMillan explains how three divorces made her discover who she really is and how she needed to marry herself before saying 'I do' to anyone else.
