True Life Stories
NICE, France (Reuters) - A 35-year-old French woman has married
her boyfriend 18 months after he was killed in a car accident.
Christel Demichel, who wore black, was married Tuesday under
a little-used law in the presence of friends and relatives at
city hall in the southern city of Nice, local officials said.
It would have been her husband Eric's 30th birthday.
"Eric and I promised when he was alive that we would get
married," she told French television. "Even though he
is dead, I respect the values I shared with him, especially as
his death was not his fault."

Eric Demichel, a policeman, was killed in a hit-and-run car accident
in September 2002. Christel, who was pregnant at the time, lost
her baby in the same accident.
"I lived a beautiful love story and this wedding testifies
to it," Demichel said.
Posthumous marriage is allowed in France under a law introduced
by former President Charles de Gaulle.
