A man with Alzheimer’s forgets he’s married and asks his wife again after falling in love with her again.
Peter Marshall, 56, made a big request to Lisa Marshall one evening in December 2020 when the two were sitting glued to the sofa, not realizing that they had already been together for 11 years, according to CNN.
Since he was diagnosed with early Alzheimer’s three years ago, Peter Marshall has increasingly lost his memory or often forgets that he is married.
Despite the memories he lost, his love for his wife never seemed to fade away.
“He’s so cute, caring, loving, fun and romantic. He’s always been so passionate about our relationship and I,” Lisa Marshall told CNN.
When her husband proposed to her, the woman agreed because she did not want to miss an opportunity to make beautiful memories with the one she loved.
“It was really touching. He fell in love with me twice. I feel proud. I feel like a princess, like Cinderella. I am the happiest girl in the world,” says the bride.
So the couple chose to renew their vows in April in an intimate family party and with the help of a dementia specialist.
“Peter was up and present all day. He was very happy. When he made his vows, he simply said to me, ‘Lisa, I love you.’ And that’s all I needed,” says Lisa Marshall.
The latter adds that she is happy that they can “stay together until the end”. Nothing will separate us.”
