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.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
