She said the ghost tried to murder her, so she got an exorcism and officially divorced him. References to external websites (such as those devoted to science, psychology, governance, and education) can be found throughout this piece. Amanda Teague of Ireland claims she wed the ghost of a Haitian pirate named Jack,
who was killed for piracy in the 1700s when she was 45 years old. It’s odd that she acts like Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Since he was named Jack, it’s logical to conclude that he was also the inspiration for her phantom husband’s moniker.
Amanda alleges that a Haitian Pirate man’s ghost appeared to her in 2014 and told her that the man’s name was Jack. She claims that their romance started the moment she realized Jack was in the room when she was resting in bed.
Amanda claimed that she and Jack fell in love after dating for a while. She says she had an affair with the ghost, which is why she proposed to Jack and he accepted. That’s what she had to say, in her own words:
“If a man bedded you while I was growing up in Ireland, he was expected to marry you,” she explained. After doing some reading on the topic, I was more eager to tie the knot than he was.
Amanda chose a white lace gown and veil for the ceremony. In the United Kingdom and Ireland, it is against the law to marry a deceased person. Amanda and Jack Sparrow had a small, intimate wedding aboard a boat in the Atlantic Ocean, just outside of Ireland’s territorial waters, so that they could legally get married.
A spirit medium who witnessed Jack’s “I do”s performed the wedding ceremony. Amanda’s ring was then placed on a candle representing Jack, symbolizing the legalization of their marriage. A cake was served during the reception, which she sliced with a massive butcher knife in front of a portrait of Jack Sparrow and a pirate flag.
Amanda claims that her ghost spouse overtook her body shortly after their marriage and that she began experiencing health problems around that time. She also said that their marriage suffered because the ghost of her deceased dog was angry with Jack.
She also alleges that she was hospitalized for a week with a sepsis diagnosis and nearly died after her health deteriorated drastically after she resumed her “intimacy” with Jack. Amanda made the difficult decision to end her marriage to Jack’s ghost in order to save her own life, but Jack became enraged and threatened to murder her when she did so, according to Amanda.
She claims that after undergoing an exorcism, her health issues began to improve, and she eventually divorced Jack because she was too frightened to do it otherwise. She believes her life would have ended if she hadn’t gone through with the exorcism. Jack, she claimed, had become an “energy vampire” and was depleting her.
Amanda Telling Her Story on Television
Amanda’s story could be believed by some and disbelieved by others. However, cases of supposed possession by spirits, exorcisms, spiritual mediums, etc., have been documented. There are many who feel that Amanda’s actions evoked and invited spirits into her body, making it possible for her to be possessed by them.
Amanda admitted that she was concerned that others would label her “insane” or “crazy” because of her views. But she equated her faith in her ability to wed the ghost of a deceased man with that of those who put stock in tarot card readings or a deity they could not see.
Amanda says she has mixed feelings about the event but is proud of herself for taking it on. She picked up a ton of information and shared the following:
‘I hope by me coming out it would help others to not feel alone or fearful,’ she said. To paraphrase one character from a horror film: “It’s not all like the entities in other horror films, there are loving caring spirits out there, too; you just need to know what you’re doing.”
The Bible warns explicitly against engaging in the occult or communicating with the ghosts of the dead. It is not stated that communicating with the dead is impossible in the Bible; rather, it is forbidden, which suggests that it is possible.
You may have experienced the supernatural firsthand, know someone who has, or has heard stories about it many times. It’s possible that the difference between survival and certain death is only a hair’s breadth.
