    I heard about this on the radio yesterday. This is about as sick as years ago when a man "married" his 8 year old daughter as part of roleplaying (like a tea party). As much as I love my kids, there are some things that you juts have to say "NO" to, no matter what the circumstances.

    So, does the other kid get death benefits? Is the girl`s estate left to him?

    Thats drated up. No offence but wtf? Her `hubby` didn`t look very happy, the look on his face was like WTF? I`m sure the groom got a special wedding diaper, and she probly toddled town the isle with her daddy.

    In case you haven`t noticed... the vows state "Do you take Jose to be your friend forever?" It`s more a statement of lifelong friendship rather than marriage. Why sully it? Marriage just happens to be the term used. I don`t see the "sick" in it. I doubt it will be considered a "legal marriage" in any court of law...and I doubt any benefits will be awarded, but granting your child her last wish of a wedding probably far outweighs looking to scam an insurance company.

    Is it REALLY so horrible for a dying 9 year old girl to get to live out her biggest dream? Good for her, man.

    It`s a little girl`s dying wish. If she doesn`t get her "wedding" now, she never will... it isn`t as though she was married off to some wealthy businessman who`s going to take her innocence. None of you never played house or had marriages when you were in 3rd-4th grade? I rememeber a bunch of my friends had little play weddings. They just made this on a bigger scale.

    What a load of horse-apples. The kid is going to croak and THIS is all the parents can think of to get through it?

    You know, I think this was sweet. It made me cry because it made me think of my sister.

    Jan. 31, she married the love of her life. Now, she was 25, but still... It was the one thing that she had told me she wanted before death, was to meet and marry the man she would be the happiest with.

    Feb. 9, she died suddenly.

    Honestly, I have an easier time thinking that she got her dream wedding, she died one of the happiest people ever.

    I don`t see what`s wrong with giving a girl who`s not expected to see her tenth birthday the wedding she always talked about and dreamed about. It`s cute, it`s sweet, and it`s a happy time that her parents can take with them when they are filled with heartbreak and tears when she`s gone.

    It`s nice that she wants to marry before she kicks off this mortal plain and that her folks bent over backwards to do it. But, man, when that girls dies, that boy is going to have all sorts of mental problems afterward. It`s like they didn`t consider him at all. Poor bastard.

    I was under the impression they met there. They never went into detail as to what the boy had. For all we know he had cancer that`s now in remission or something and he`ll now live a very long and scarred life.

    Fnkychkn - Of course it`s not legal. It`s purely ceremonial.

    Every little girl dreams of her wedding day, and I think that it`s touching that she is able to have hers. A very sad story, though.

    It always scares me that people who are walking around, smiling, and talking can be gone in just a few weeks. Children, too.

    But really, it`s lovely that the parents put this together for her.

    I read another story about this that said the little boy is in remission. Apparently he wouldn`t talk to the reporter about the wedding; he`s (understandably) upset and confused about the fact that he`s going to live while his friend is going to die.

    Blakcat, I agree with you. When my sister went on the 9th, I and everyone else went into a state of shock. It happened SO suddenly, eight hours between the time we had any hint of anything being wrong and the time she was gone. It really opened my eyes that we need to cherish and be grateful for every moment that this life gives us.

    Can someone explain to me how you can put up a fight when dealing with cancer? Surely you can`t fight it, it is going to do what it does.

    I`m actually honestly intrigued as to what people mean by it. Do they simply mean maintaining the attitude of `this cancer will not beat me`, or do they mean `I am going to use every treatment possible to get rid of this thing`?

    I love this! those are the most amazing parents ever. This girl had been dreaming of her wedding day, and the mom had probably been dreaming of it too, it`s very sweet that she got to experience that in her life. Seeing kids die is the worst because you know they never got to experience life in general, they never got to grow up. But these two got to experience a little piece of adulthood before they died, and it`s awesome that the parents let them do so.

    Dainty, I think I understand the terminology now as a psychological boost to people dealing with cancer. I guess it is the mindset which sepertates `dealing` or `living` with cancer from `fighting` it.

    I`ve also just realised that my previous post may have sounded a little dismissive, so my apologies if it sounded that way, I was merely interested in the terminology. Also, my condolences for the loss of your friend.

    seriously people, did you not hear who was directing the ceremonies? "Do you take Jose to be your friend forever?" not a real marriage. And that`s completely besides the point, she`s dying in weeks, she`s never going to have a chance to get married. Anybody who thinks this is wrong or stupid obviously does not feel emotion.

    > wombatmaster
    > that`s completely besides the point, she`s dying in weeks, she`s never going to have a chance to get married

    I think that IS the point wombat, its traumatic enough on an adult when they lose a partner. One of these kids is going to die before the other, and the remaining one will be incredibly traumatised. You`re not giving the kids some "magical fairy tale wish come true", you`re exposing them to adult pain and loss in the midst of everything else they`re suffering. If the parents had one iota of sense, I think they would have realised this was a very very cruel thing to do to them.

    I`ve survived cancer three times, rhabdomyiasarcoma, condro-blastic osteosarcoma and most recently a lung metastasis. I`ll tell ya, it`s as hard to see your parents (and loved ones) watch you deal with cancer as it is to deal with cancer yourself. I`m not surprised they agreed to do this. Parents are probably distraught with sadness.

    I`m glad you`re here with us today. :) I lost a grandfather to lung cancer (and probably my dad soon, he`s been coughing a lot and we don`t know what`s wrong with him. He`s going to the clinic today. He`s been a chainsmoker since he was 12.) and my best friend`s dad was given 6 months to live 10 years ago, and he`s still with us.

    That is so sweet that their family has done that for them.

    I have a 90% chance of getting lukemia. I have the cells in my blood, but the doctors can`t do anything about it until it turns into cancer. Hopfully when it is found it isn`t to late...

    I feel so sorry for the little girl for what she has but happy for her that she is able to have her dream =-]

    I wouldn`t think the wedding was actually legally binding, more of a "staged" wedding to grant her last wish. If it was legal, that is kind of messed up.

    But all that aside, it`s horrible to see kids die like that before their life even begins. At least she`ll die happy. That must have been gut wrenching for the parents though.

    They possibly didn`t get married legally (or maybe I wasn`t listening) but it`s still adorable. Every little girl wants to get married and every little girl wants to feel like a princess. It`s so sad she has to have her princess years cut so short.

    I can`t believe no one heard when the preacher said "Do you take him to be your FRIEND forever?"

    Obviously, the parents are granting their daughter`s dying wish with a little make-believe wedding to make a dream of hers come true since she only has 4 weeks left to live.

    Some little girls dream of getting married; there`s nothing wrong with being small and having fun little fantasies--that`s what childhood is all about and it is sad her life will be cut short.

    Some of the comments on here are so mean towards a dying 9 year old girl; some people need to have sympathy.

    Dragosal you are a dick. You have no f*cking idea what that is like! I had leukemia and now I can hardly walk and doctors say i probably won`t be able to again because of a side effect of chemo. I spent over 90 days in the hospital of those day being my birthday, easter, july 4th, AND CHRISTMAS!!!
    That little girl wanted to have that one life experience before she died and I personally found it very sweet and even started crying. You on the other hand obviously have no heart whatsoever and will live a long and lonely life. So just shut the f*ck up, k?

    I`m sorry, but in a way, i agree with Dragosal.
    They are too young to understand what love and marriage is. I`m 17, and i`m still not sure what love and marriage mean. (and i have been in a great, loving and stable relationship for the past 7 months). I wont say it was a waste of money, because they deserve all the money in the world, they have been going through pretty rough times.. But they could have spent it in something else, like a holiday, maybe a trip to Disneyland or something... Some other way to celebrate their friendship, but not a wedding =/

    dragosal has a lot of growing up to do..and is looking at it the wrong way. ditas you don`t seem to understand either.

    This isn`t about "love and marriage". It`s about a little girl who wants to accomplish a dream she knows she`ll never live to see.

    Many little girls want to grow up, find someone that loves them, and get married. This little girl will die before then. It is a matter of love...FAMILY love, not sexual or even intimate necessarily, but a love to make this young girl happy before she passes on.

    I don`t think it was an actual marriage. The guy said "friend" forever, not "husband," it`s a celebration of love and friendship, not a relationship, since they got through so much as friends.

    Also, Dragosal is a total moron. And I mean that on an almost personal level. That girl is going to die very soon and she wanted to see her dream of "marriage" come true. It isn`t a real marriage in the legal sense, it`s a celebration and a way for a little girl`s last dream to come true. Can`t you appreciate that? Or are you too dense to see the beauty of a real-life dream come true?
