I Will Marry You, Even If It's The Last Thing You Do

By Michelle Duffy     Mar 10, 2007 in World
An Indian woman has said to have been so distraught over the accidental death of her intended that she insisted on marrying his corpse
The young bride tragically lost her fiance as he slipped down a well to his death. 'No sonner was the girl a bride, than a widow,'
The wedding, strangely, went ahead with relatives and wedding guests propping the corpse up by the fire - a traditional ritual at Hindu weddings where the fire is the centre of the ceremony. The guests joined in with wedding prayers to wish the couple future happiness before promptly cremating the body.
It was the bride's wish to be married before letting the body go for cremation, so the whole thing was done in one go...
The 22 year old bride, named Tulsi Devipujak persuaded her parents to attend the wedding, despite their objections, so in Hindu tradition for the bride, they gave her clothes and utensils as Hindu wedding gifts and wished her well...
Strange, but true...
