Even death could not stop their love, but now it looks like the honeymoon is over for an Irish woman and her 300-year-old pirate ghost husband.


It might not have been love at first sight but, when 46-year-old Amanda Sparrow Teague met the ghost of an 18th century Haitian pirate named Jack, she knew it was love.

So the pair were legally married in a ceremony held in international waters off the coast or Ireland.

But their love couldn't last forever, and now Amanda says she wants a divorce.


It seemed like the perfect love story. Amanda had a soft spot for swarthy buccaneers. She was Northern Ireland's only female Jack Sparrow impersonator and spent £5,433 to legally change her last name from Large to Sparrow.

Then one night lying in bed Amanda felt a presence. It was the spirit of Jack Teague, a Haitian sailor who was executed for piracy in the 1700s.

After the encounter, Amanda soon developed "strong loving feelings" for Jack, who she says looks a lot like Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow. "He is dark-skinned and has jet-black hair, so he tells me."

But Amanda wasn't just looking for a fling. "I told him I wasn't really cool with having casual sex with a spirit and I wanted us to make a proper commitment to each other."

In January they married in a private ceremony with the help of a shaman and a medium who spoke Jack's vows for him.

Amanda made headlines for her unusual marriage, but told people they should consider marrying a ghost themselves.

"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."

Later, she even had a pregnancy scare, but in the end it just turned out to be menopause.


Sadly, it seems the whirlwind romance has come to an end.

According to the Irish Mirror, Teague posted about the end of her marriage on social media.

"So I feel it's time to let everyone know that my marriage is over. I will explain all in due course but for now all I want to say is be VERY careful when dabbling in spirituality, it's not something to mess with."

After such a gripping love story, people wondered would could have broken the couple apart.







Breaking up is hard to do, but it might be even harder when you're married to a ghost. Amanda says she's worried Jack might not want a divorce and she might need to call an exorcist.

That might not be the only complication with divorcing a pirate ghost, though.




It was beautiful while it lasted, but it seems all good things must come to an end.

Euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide refer to, as defined by Medical News Today, as the "deliberate action taken with the intention of ending a life, in order to relieve persistent suffering." It's a controversial topic. As of 2021, active human euthanasia is legal in the Netherlands, Belgium, Colombia, Luxembourg, Canada, and Spain. Assisted suicide is legal in Switzerland, Germany, the Australian states of Victoria Northern Territory, and Western Australia.

But this issue has many passionate supporters who often know what it's like to care for someone who would have benefited from the practice. They told their stories after Redditor Random2328 asked the online community,

Privilege is discussed quite a bit these days, and for good reason. So many people are able to live life longer, more peacefully, and freely than others thanks to factors they had no control over.

The law is a fickle mistress, and it varies from state to state and county to county sometimes. And then there is the blatant hypocrisy of it all.

There are some things that feel like they should be allowed to pass but you get scolded for, like jaywalking, and then there are things like actual robbery in broad daylight, like telemarketers and nothing happens to them.

Make it make sense. It's like taxes, the wealthy know loopholes and the poor go to jail. Shameful.

While the world is a dark and scary place, there would not be a world, or a human race, without inherent kindness.

Kindness always gives you a little thump to your heart that nothing else can truly provide. A rush of knowing you've made someone's day better. And you may change the trajectory of that person's life because of it.
