Weird Wednesday #3: Better Late Than Never

Photo taken from this news site.


In what may be the saddest news to ever grace this website, this author has recently learned that a man in Thailand married his girlfriend of ten years. Shortly after her death.

The man, named Chadil Deffy, had intended to marry her for quite some time, but had decided to focus on his studies rather than getting married, according to a Thai newspaper. She lost her life to a tragic accident.

Now, I know this is being filed under weird news, but the gesture holds a certain melancholy sweetness. The man is obviously is beyond heartbroken, and coping with guilt. It isn't a publicity stunt, or something insidious, but an act of grieving that should serve as a reminder to the fleeting nature of life.
