French woman Karen Jumeaux marries her dead fiancé!

London: A woman in France is so in love with her fiancé that two-years after he was killed in a car crash she married him.

Karen Jumeaux, 22, was permitted by an obscure law to wed Anthony Maillot, after she proved that they had already planned the ceremony.

They had got engaged after meeting in 2007 and had a baby boy in 2009 — shortly before Maillot died aged 20.

Jumeaux, who wore a white dress for the ceremony witnessed by family and friends, held the wedding in Dizy-le-Gros, eastern France, after President Nicolas Sarkozy granted her request.

“Anthony was my first and only love and we were together for four years,” the Sun quoted her as saying.

“We expected to bring up our son together. I never wanted to do it alone, but fate decided otherwise. Now I am his wife and I will always love him,” she added.

But a French legal expert said if she ever wanted to re-marry, she would have to get a divorce.
