Yeah, I believe her. She is a friend of mine that I trust
For the purpose of answering this question, I will not focus on the fact that I have encountered both her and her husband in Faery before.
Do fairies have mortal spouses?
According to folklore and myth, yes. It actually happened and happens a lot.
in fact, it was a Fairy Doctor’s duty (one of many) to help people when fairies tried to take them away as brides (since sometimes the fairies would kill their physical bodies)
tales that talk about various human fairy relations (most of them involving marriage)
- Connla and the Fairy Maiden
- The Lothian Farmer’s Wife
- The Mermaid Wife
- Chapter II. The Coming of Angus and Bride
- The Fairy Wife
- Chapter IX: Piety as a Protection from the Seductions of the Tylwyth Teg
- The Fairy Midwife
- III. The Fairy Wife
- II. Fairy Gardens
- VI. A Fairy Wedding
- The Fairy Thorn, An Ulster Ballad, by Sir Samuel Ferguson
- The Fairy Nurse, by Edward Walsh
- The Fairy Child
- Fairy Wiles
- The Fairy Doctor
just to name a few
Um. I wake up and the first thing I see is this. Why would anybody think I was lying about that? I hardly ever blog about me and him in the first place.
(also lizzy ur the best thanks for defending me)
There is literally so much folklore of fae taking on mortals as spouses or sleeping with them.
So anon believes fae exist but draws the line on then taking mortal spouse when there is LITERALLY ballads and stories of this happening?
