I am sure you have watched a lot of romantic flicks and read some novels about lovey dovey couples.
To a certain extent, some of these stories do not capture a happily-ever-after ending and for me, I would feel like strangling the author or the script-writer for destroying the plot.

I was watching an old English film and it triggered me to cry at the ending.
This young lady, Olivia was diagnosed with Ovary Cancer and she was spared with only 3 more months to live. At first, she hesitated to reveal the truth to her boyfriend. She didn’t want to yoke him with this unbearable fact of her dying so soon. With thoughts of disappearing from her town, Olivia left a note for her beloved Mark, asking him to forget her for good before she fled to Surrey.
Mark, on the other hand, read the message the moment he came home, dashed to search for Olivia.
*To cut the story short*
Mark finally found her in Surrey. Knowing that Olivia’s days were numbered, Mark knelt on his knees as soon as he saw her. With his assuring words that he would never leave her and he took out a ring from his pocket. “Even if you have two weeks left, I would still want to marry you.” That was the exact words blurted by Mark which moved my heart.
And of course, Mark stood by her side day by day, fighting the cancer and his love was just simply overflowing for Olivia till her very last day. The saddest part was Olivia breathed her last breath while watching the scenic sunset with Mark, and her head was resting on his shoulder peacefully.

I am dazzled by Mark’s sacrificial and unconditional love for Olivia.
But if I were to face such situation, I would definitely go all out to support my love without any hesitation. I would love him even more as I know our days are ticking away.
Are there any man today who could be like Mark? If you found out that your girlfriend is dying soon, would you still marry her? Would you still love her as much as she was very healthy before? What would you do?
I don’t know, I am not a man.
Maybe you could tell me more!
