Getting married with weeks/months to live
A young girl from around my way, has been told that cancer she had previously has returned. She married her boyfriend last night, before being flown to mainland UK today for treatment. How sweet but yet so tragic for all involved.
Not being affected myself though, it got me thinking. Would I want my son/daughter to marry someone who is not going to be around much longer? Would I want them to be held back from life with such a burden to be faithful to this person once they were gone?
On the other hand, if it was my son/daughter who was poorly would I want them to fulfil a dream such as marrying their then partner? Of course I would.
I wondered what your thoughts might be.
