Together forever

A tragedy in 1959 is today the basis of a strange law in France. Following a major disaster President Charles de Gaulle passed a law that allowed a young woman to marry her fiancé who was one of those killed. Since then a number of posthumous marriages have taken place: like Christelle Demichel who married her fiancé killed in a traffic accident. Standing alone and wearing black with a bouquet of yellow roses, she was married to her lost love. Christelle insists she is not in denial. “My husband is dead. I accept that. I’m not fighting reality or the fact of his death; but we were meant to be married.”
There’s something very moving about stories of lost love, but for people of faith sadness is always tempered by the unshakeable hope that we will meet again, never to part
