Thai Man Marries Dead Girlfriend

Deffy places a ring on his dead bride


OddityCentral:  In this tragic love story from Thailand, a man decided to  go ahead with the wedding he and his girlfriend had planned, even though she sadly died in a car crash, just day before the big event.
29-year old Sarinya Kamsook and her 28-year-old boyfriend, Chadil Deffy, were to be married this year. A wedding is considered the most special event of a woman’s life and it was no different for Sarinya. She was eagerly counting the days to the moment when she would finally say ‘I do’, along with the love of her life, but fate had other plans for the young couple. Merely days before the wedding, Sarinya was involved in a car crash, leaving her severely injured. She still could have been saved with timely medical attention. However, the doctors made her wait for 6 hours due to an overcrowded ICU instead of transferring her to another hospital. During this time, she succumbed to her injuries and passed away.
Deffy and Sarinya had been together for 10 years, before they finally decided to settle down. They had postponed the wedding several times, due to busy schedules and the fact that Deffy wanted to complete his education before he got married. However, after Sarinya’s untimely death, he couldn’t let her go without fulfilling her deepest desire. So, he decided to marry her anyway. On the 4th of January, in Buddhist ceremony, Deffy married the corpse of his girlfriend. During the ceremony, he expressed his devotion and deep love for Sarinya. Several friends and relatives attended the wedding, and it was even aired on national television in Thailand. The story, along with pictures from the wedding have now become an internet sensation, sparking several debates.

This creeps me out… 
Along with that, how can it be legally possible to marry someone when they can’t say, “I do”?

  1. sorry but thats just ill

     
  2. This is a sad story about his girlfriend, but I doubt that there is anything sexual here. This “marriage” more symbolic and memorial than anything else. Now, if he were Muslim, I would be a bit more freaked out since an Iman has okayed necrophilia.

    The above story at the link above should give anyone the willies.

     
  3. I kinda agree with tphelps. Symbolic and nothing more. They were together for 10 years and due to get married in what 1-2 days. Sometimes the depth of someone’s love motivates them to do things that another could never understand…kinda like a Christians love for Jesus when others don’t know how we can believe in a “mythical” being. Or how one could so willingly die for their faith. Unless you have been in a certain situation, you just don;t REALLY know what you would do. You only THINK you do.
    BTW…they are BUDDHIST. They don’t have the promise of eternal life the same as Christians do…believing on Jesus. For them…this was it!

     
  4. Mmmkay…this is different… Kind of bizarre and over the top for me. Strange…

     
  5. I have read of cultures (although I can’t remember which right now) that used to have ceremonies for the dead so they didn’t go to the great beyond unmarried. It was a tradition. I don’t know if some still do it, but it’s not unheard of.

     
  6. I think they were Asian ones that I read about.
