    Dead Couple to Be Married


    JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - A South African man who shot his pregnant fiancýe dead before killing himself will be posthumously married to her at the weekend.

    Police Captain Mohale Ramatseba said David Masenta shot 25-year-old Mgwanini Molomo after a quarrel before turning the gun on himself. But Johannesburg's Sowetan newspaper said family and friends wanted to remember them as a happy couple destined for a happy life together.

    The groom's corpse would be dressed in a cream suit and his bride's in a gown for the ceremony, at which a priest in the rural village of Ceres in Limpopo will bless the union before the two are buried, the Sowetan said.

    "In African culture, there is no death -- there is merely the separation of body and soul," said cultural expert Mathole Motshekga. "It is also important because the families are married together."


    "This does not mean the relationship has irretrievably broken down."

    That may be their belief here on earth, but what about the spirit surviving after death? Could be that the guy will get a big surprize and not find himself to be reunited with his wife in the afterlife. I've always suspected that those who take another's life will suffer the consequences in the hereafter.
