A woman who made headlines after marrying the ghost of a pirate, has got divorce less than three years after the ceremony. She claims the separation came after he tried to ruin her life and almost killed her.
Amanda Teague appeared on ITV's 'This Morning' to talk about her split from her ghostly hubby, a 300-year-old pirate named Jack. The wedding took place back in 2016 in international waters as posthumous marriage is not legal in the UK.
Amanda told the show's hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, "I had started on the road of spirituality in 2010 after my son died. Before that I didn't really believe in very much and I was kind of agnostic." She said that her new-found spirituality gave her a link to the other side, this allowed her to connect with the spirit of Jack.
The divorcee says that she was aware of his energy, but never saw a physical manifestation of him or even heard his voice aloud. She said, "it was all done through mediumship, feeling energy and you know thought forms."
Amanda claims to have gotten so close and romantically involved with the spirit of Jack that it became a full-blown relationship. She told the hosts, "I suppose I'd use that the term 'intimate' rather than 'physical'." Speaking about Jack's lack of a physical body, she said, "it isn't really important, it's more about the energy connection or the chemistry."
Sadly, the relationship took a turn for the worst. Amanda explains, "the first time that I really noticed anything was wrong was a couple of months after we got married and things happened." She blamed Jack for a spate of paranormal activity in her home that kept escalating in severity over almost two years.
Amanda said that she contracted sepsis last June as a result of this and almost died. She said, "he was basically like an energy vampire." She claimed this was because Jack has stuck around for too long after his death and he needed an "energy source", which ended up being her. He was "bleeding her dry," as Ruth put it, and making Amanda ill.
Amanda said that after a lot of red flags and an operation as a result of her illness she realised, "that it definitely was him" making her ill. She added, "when I realised that he did, I ended up having an exorcism in December of last year."
So does Amanda regret her marriage? "In a way, yes I do regret it," she said, "and another way I don't because it's given me a lot of lessons, it's given me a lot of opportunities that I wouldn't have had without it, and I do believe that everything happens to us for a reason."
Amanda, originally turned to spiritualism after the death of her son because she wanted to know if there was something on the other side for him. But after she found Jack on the other side who came through and tried to ruin her life, she quit all forms of mediumship. Eamonn wrapped up the interview by saying, "well, be careful what you wish for, what you dream about because it may just come true."
