Irish woman, fed up of trying to find perfect man, marries 300 year old ghost of pirate

AN IRISH WOMAN has married the ghost of a Haitian pirate named Jack who died in the 1700’s.

Amanda Teague from Drogheda, Co. Louth, has married a Haitian pirate named Jack who died 300 years ago.

The 45-year-old’s friends and family were in attendance for the picturesque wedding which took place on a boat off the Irish coast. The couple spent their honeymoon in Northern Ireland.

Amanda told the Daily Star that she has found her “soulmate”, and insists they have arguments, go on dates and have sex like any ordinary couple.

“It is the perfect kind of relationship for me.

“There are a lot of people out there who don’t know about spiritual relationships, but it could be right for them -  I want to get the message out there.”

Amanda, who works as a Captain Jack Sparrow impersonator, has never seen her husband in physical form but imagines he is similar to Captain Jack Sparrow, Johnny Dep’s character in the Pirates of the Caribbean films.

Amanda went on to tell the Daily Star that Amanda's feelings for Jack grew as they got to know each other more, and then one day he told her they could actually be together.

Although she'd never had a 'spiritual boyfriend' before, she did some research and realised she wasn't the only one to have a relationship with a spirit.

Amanda had been married before and has five children with her ex-husband, but now she feels her connection with her new husband is very strong.
