Alex Humphreys’s route to finding a husband is a direct one. Already disillusioned by her dating experiences at the age of 23, she has conceived The Husband Project – a conceptual artwork that will form part of her degree at Leeds College of Art and Design. Advertising on her blog and Facebook, she aims to meet and marry a man in the next three months and will include the marriage certificate in her final presentation.
“I don’t want to wake up when I’m 30 and think: oh my God, I’m on my own,” she says. She feels honesty is the best policy. “It’s better to say I’m looking for a relationship, not just a shag.”
