A German woman is all ready to "marry" the love of her life, a 737-800 Boeing plane she fondly calls 'Schatz' - the German word for darling, who she met 6 years ago.

"The time in the hangar was the most beautiful moment of my life and when I was with him, we enjoyed our time together, we kissed and I caressed him," the daily quoted her as saying.

"I wouldn't want to put on a white dress, but dress really smartly with black trousers and a black blazer."

While Michele has only managed to meet her lover twice, she cradles its components at night.

“It’s like a normal relationship, we have relaxing evenings together and when we go to bed, we cuddle and fall asleep together."

According to report, although 30-year-old German's friends and family are on-board with their "relationship", Michele's family is not interested in meeting her 'Schatz'.

The relationship that Michele is involved in with the aeroplane is called object sexuality or objectophilia wherein an individual has a romantic or sexual attraction towards inanimate objects.

In the past, several persons have been documented in relationships with fences, amusement park rides, teddy bears, etc.

Meanwhile, Michele is a saleswoman by profession and collects aircraft parts as a hobby and dreams to be an aircraft mechanic one day.
