Heartbreaking: A man in Thailand Married a dead girlfriend to fulfill his promise of love

“The Great Example of True Love” A touching real life story of Thai lover. This may be the reason why people say LOVE is BLIND, MAD etc. etc.

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. The event took place in Surin, a city in northern Thailand. 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.


The images show Deffy kissing the forehead of his girlfriend’s corpse and placing a wedding ring on her finger. Hopefully her soul now rests in peace, having received her final wish.

What a heart warming story. A man keeping his promise until the end of time to the love of his life. How many men can keep their promises?

To be honest its a little disturbing, but kindda romantic at the same time. I really have mixed feeling about this. Is the marrage even legal?

i think he is still being selfish at the very end of her life… how so???… he’s just trying to clear his conscience for making her wait 10 long years by marrying her now when she’s already dead… and the ceremony being broadcasted to the world so he can gain sympathy… does this really make any sense??? i dont buy this at all…

I dont feel bad; this guy probably never proposed to the poor woman who waited and waited (what 10 years) to be asked….and then she dies (having never been asked)…now he wants to make amends…bull…..

I’m not disgusted by this I’m touched to know that a man can love a woman that much! It’s so sad! no one knows how it feels to lose someone they’re planning to marry.Until it happens to you don’t judge this poor man!

It is unfair to make a dead body go through all this…
And Xerxy’s comment is VERY agreeable…

This is no true love I most say, how on earth a lover should date for a decade and they call that true love. If actually he loved her, he would have done that for that number of years during their courtship or better still when she was still passing the pain of the crash in the hospital.

He is so selfish , he just use her for fame till her death.

Muhammad Nayyar Islam February 9, 2012 at 9:23 pm

He is a man to be loved, being an honest person. Appreciate his thinking towards his love. May Almighty God blessed her to rest in piece.
So Lovely and appreciative, and personally I salute him..
