The Heart-Breaking Story Of A Man Who Married His Girlfriend Hours Before He Died

The heart-breaking story of a couple who got married in a hospital hours before the groom passed away has captured the attention of the world. A video of the hospital wedding which was uploaded by the groom's brother on YouTube currently has over 10 million views and counting.

The story behind the video is both beautiful and tragic. Early this year, Rowden and his long-time girlfriend Leizl made plans to finally get married on July 8 which also happened to be Rowden's 30th birthday. Together with their two-year-old daughter, Rowden and Leizl looked forward in anticipation for the moment when they'll finally exchange wedding vows.

But in a cruel twist of fate, Rowden was diagnosed with stage IV liver cancer in May. One of his last requests before he goes to the other side was to marry Leizl. That request was fulfilled when Rowden and Leizl exchanged vows at the Philippine General Hospital while surrounded by family and friends. It was a happy moment but a sad one as well as 10 hours after the couple said their vows, Rowden passed away.
