This is my home country, nice.
And to clear every thing out, she didn't legally marry the dead person. They just combined the funeral and wedding into one ceremony as they were scheduled to get married literally the week that the man passed away. I understand the sentiment and the idea, and it's not like she was going to do all the paperwork to be legally married. Stuff like this is kind of sweeter/wholesome when you think of it that way.
I don't wanna take religion too seriously but anyway, we Filipinos take wedding ceremonies very seriously, so there's a very good chance they just didn't wanna waste everything they spent for the wedding, as well as give the woman the feeling that she married him anyway.
Also, funeral services are very informal back home so the "guy in blue" is dressed up just as much as half the people in the rest of the crowd.
@Jenny Talia, going to Cebu in a few months, to see friends & my fiance. Right away i knew where this pic was taken, i agree its so nice what was done. And it must be good(and a bit cooler physically) to show up in plain clothes to a funeral and not worry what people think.
@Jenny Talia, Having married in to a Filipino family, I can confirm that they don’t cut corners on the weddings!
@Jenny Talia, did they have biscuits and coffee in the reception?
@Juggy, yes! Food and drinks, have seen it for funerals
@Jenny Talia, #bestcomments
But hey, it's 2019 and he never gave consent! Dead people's lives matter too!
... wait... "dead people's lives"... eh, you know what? Someone is gonna take that seriously, and that's really the joke here.
@NeroSaber, I hear the honeymoon was to die for
Until death do you part, oh wait.....
But he can’t consent!
Assuming this is taking place in the USA, this would be completely illegal. You cannot consent to being pair bonded if you are dead, therefore legally this would be a forced marriage. Whoever the official is would likely lose their license, and the boy’s family would be able to sue the girlfriend, the charge depending on what the plan is here. If she filed for any form of marriage or widow benefits, she’s guilty of financial fraud at the least.
So it’s either fake, or it’s evidence of a crime.
