Such ceremonies are unusual but not unheard of in France, where the law allows posthumous marriages in cases where a fiance dies before the wedding. The law states that such weddings can only be approved by the French president "in grave circumstances".I link to the Althouse blog so you can see the comments. As an aside, something I see on the Althouse blog is a degree of self-censorshiop by the commenters, who sometimes remove their comments. I assume they do it for reasons of grammar or spelling, or they decided that a subsequent comment made them look stupid.
This event should not be confused with the Bride who Married Herself.
