Yes I sypathize with her, but I don't have to imagine it. Speaking from experience, I lost my girlfriend 5 months ago to an accident related to diabetes. For that month she was in the hospital, all I could think about was her getting better so could ask her to marry me. When she died, I didn't think I could go on. To me, marriage is something I hope to SHARE with a woman I love some day. Marriage is until "Death do us Part", not "Until we die, then we Unite".

There truly isn't anything scared anymore it seems in this world.

You know what? Somebody can marry their vibrator if they want to. I don't give a rat's ass. Laws do not make something sacred or not sacred. It's the presence or absence of LOVE that determine whether or not something is sacred.

Exactly. In the homosexual thread, I feel like the basic justification is that if two people are both consenting to a relationship and love each other, then they should never be denied the right to marry. As weird as it is, if that was the wish of the boyfriend, then I guess based on any marriage for love and happiness and the consent of both individuals, then it's ok. Besides, if you think about it, we burn bodies, we use them for scientific experimentation, or donate pieces of people per their wishes, so why is marriage so much different?

I agree, I don't think that this type of marriage is acceptable and I personally do not agree with it at all, it just irked me that people were making a mockery out of a truly devastating situation.

Laws reflect society as much as they define society.

. Sorry to hear about your loss.

Joyfulgirl made a good point in her post, though. I personally find this story very unusual, but.... I dunno.

I highly doubt there'll be some outbreak of people marrying deceased spouses, though. Most people wouldn't find that appealing.
