1Man Lives with Corpse as His Lover
You want weird? How about Count Carl Van Cosel, who was not a count and whose last name was really Tanzier. A lonely x-ray technician, he became obsessed with Elena Hoyos, who was a patient at the hospital where he worked. Elena was suffering from tuberculosis and the Count promised to restore her to health with his x-ray machine. Secretly, he knew that she was dying. When she finally passed on October 25, 1931, she was buried, but Van Cosel convinced the family to move her to a mausoleum. What they didn't know was that he had the only key and would visit her every night. After a few years, he secretly moved her to his house, where he would dress her up in bridal clothes and sometimes dance (and probably do other things) with her. He covered her decaying flesh with wax and plaster and doused her with perfume. He was eventually caught and tried for his heinous deeds, but by this time the statute of limitations had passed.

Blanche Dumas was born in the 1800s with three legs, four breasts, and two vaginas. You would think that this would be a hinderance to her love life, but no. In fact, it was just the opposite, as she was known as the Three-Legged Courtesan. One day she heard about Juan Baptista do Santos, who also had three legs, but, more importantly, TWO penises.

3A Woman Marries the Man Who Blinded Her
In 1959, New Yorker Bert Pugach was having an affair with Linda Riss. When she found out about his wife and child, she broke it off. Enraged and despondent, he hired three men to attack her, so they threw lye in her face, blinding and disfiguring her. The subsequent trial was sensational. Although he claimed that he acted out of love, the jury sentenced him to 15 years. Still, the two corresponded while he was in jail. Either moved by his devotion, wanting to punish him, or because she had nowhere else to turn, Bert and Linda married in 1974; she died in 2013. They wrote a book and appeared in a documentary aptly entitled Crazy Love.

Victor is currently serving 13 years for being a “willing participant” in Johanna's death, who was shot twice in the head days before her 20th birthday.
