Husband With Alzheimer’s Forgot He Was Married To His Wife of 38 years. He Proposed, and They Married Again
Due to Alzheimer’s, this 56-year-old man lost the memories of his wife Lisa, with whom he had been married for 12 years. Over the years, Lisa, who constantly takes care of him, has become his favorite person again, and he has asked her again for a wife and married her.
Lisa and Peter are from Connecticut, and she is his caregiver and takes care of him due to a serious illness. But even though he sometimes can’t remember her name and only calls her Tart, he still knows he still loves her.
While watching a wedding on television over the past year, Peter wanted to ask Lisa for a wife, unaware that he was already married to her. Lisa says he had a moment of enlightenment so he said, “Let’s do it!”
“I asked him ‘What should we do?’ And he pointed to the TV at the wedding stage, and I asked him ‘Do you want to get married?’ He said ‘yes’ and smiled. He does not know that I am his wife. “I’m just his favorite person.”
Thus, Peter fell in love with his wife for the second time and asked her for a wife for the second time, and she accepted again and they got married again in a ceremony organized by Lisa’s daughter.
“I am the happiest woman in the world. I did it twice. It was perfect. I could not dream of a better day. It was magical. I do not remember seeing him so happy long ago. He was very happy.” claim Lisa.
Lisa writes in a blog post Being Patient that Peter was diagnosed with early Alzheimer’s in 2018, or when he was only 53 years old.
He explains that his mental abilities have deteriorated, so that he no longer recognizes himself when he looks in the mirror, because he believes that he is in his 20s.
Lisa says he could not remember the details of their first wedding, which took place 12 years ago on a beach on the Turks and Caicos Islands, although he had previously found photos.
Peter’s illness progressed very quickly, so he no longer remembers the ceremony that took place a few months ago. But Lisa says this gesture means a lot to her, and says that their relationship is “the most magical love story you will ever hear.”
