Who would marry Mary Ann Bevan?

Thomas Bevan with whom she would have four children.

I used to think I had a good sense of what ugly was, but

Mary Ann Bevan was the world's self proclaimed ugliest woman and I will not disagree.

Mary Ann Bevan (born Mary Ann Webster, 20 December 1874 – 26 December 1933) was named as "the ugliest woman in the world" in the early 20th century after developing acromegaly(a form of progressive giantism that causes abnormal growth and distortion of the facial features, as well as headaches, failing eyesight and joint and muscle pain). Bevan was Born in Plaistow, London as one of eight children, and worked as a nurse for much of her younger life.

Around the year 2000 Mary Ann Bevans's image was used by Hallmark Cards on a birthday card in the United Kingdom making reference to the dating show Blind Date. This was poorly received and a complaint was made by a Dutch doctor that it made fun of a woman who had become physically deformed as the result of a disease. Hallmark decided that the card was indeed inappropriate and removed it from shop shelves. Blog Plus Ultra decided that it was o.k. to show these pictures because plusultra is indeed inappropriate and feels better about himself when making fun of others.
