Ned Nefer is a one-woman man - even if that woman is made entirely of wood.
Nefer, 38, says he's married to a mannequin named Teagan, and the kooky couple is traveling 70 miles from Syracuse to Watertown on foot, the Watertown Daily Times reported.
Or at least Nefer is walking. The Syracuse native is pushing his 6-foot wooden wife in a wheelchair across upstate New York.
"This is definitely one of the oddest things I've come across, but he seems very happy," said Lisa Spear, principal social welfare examiner for the Jefferson County Department of Social Services.
"I wouldn't classify him as dangerous at all," she told the newspaper after meeting with Nefer. "He seemed quite happy in his own little world."
Nefer's relationship is one that's built on trust - and lumber. He told the Daily Times that Teagan was only a head when they first met.
But he built her a wooden body and claims they were married on Oct. 31, 1986, in California. Nefer was taking the mannequin to Watertown's Children's Home, where he first laid eyes on her noggin.

'I Wouldn't Classify Him as Dangerous at All'
He may not be dangerous, but he's way out there.
