Early this week, the internet was abuzz with the story of a groom who couldn’t make it to his own reception, and the bride who stayed by his side ’til death did them part. Read on for real love and life musings from the story of Clark and Millie.
Clark and Millie first met in 2003. He was eighteen, and she, twenty-three. Over the course of the next year, they had a child and got married in civil rites but, before long, Clark had to leave for the US, only getting to visit his family every two years. Clark had long promised to Millie that they would get married in front of the altar. On July 12, 2017, he made sure that he would keep his word—even if it would be the last thing he did.
