Man donates liver to stranger; she gives him her heart in return

Nearly two years ago, a man donated a piece of his liver to a stranger, and last weekend, she gave him her heart in return. The two were married in a church outside of Chicago this weekend.

When doctors diagnosed Heather Krueger, 27, with stage 4 liver disease, they told her she had just a few months to live.

"They immediately told me I was going to need a transplant," Krueger told CBS News. "By that time, I could really feel my body shutting down."

But there wasn't much time to find a donor.

But one day, Chris Dempsey, who had never met Krueger, overheard a colleague at work talking about her situation. He decided to get tested to see if he'd be a match. The former Marine said he is programmed to help others.

"I spent four years in the Marine Corps and learned there never to run away from anything," Dempsey told CBS. "So I just said to myself, 'Hey, if I can help, I'm going to help.'"

After finding out that they were compatible, the two met for lunch to discuss what the process would be like.

The transplant was successful, and the two stayed in touch, eventually falling in love. Last weekend, a year and a half after the liver transplant, they tied the knot in a ceremony in front of family and friends.

"You are the most incredible man I have ever known," Krueger told Dempsey in her wedding vows. "You believe in me, and you make me feel amazing every single day. Because of you, I laugh, smile, and I dare to dream again."

Burr had his mother get the special vintage out of his bag. She took it as if it was any other bottle of wine, not taking a close look at the label.

Video: Man surprises girlfriend with LEGO-themed proposal

Finding a unique and meaningful way to propose can be tough for some people, but Ben Anderson decided to go with LEGOs.

>> Read more trending stories  

Anderson and his girlfriend, Kirsten Dally, from the United Kingdom were at the movies on a date when a short film made with LEGOs began to play prior to the feature presentation, ABC News reported. In the video, Anderson is portrayed in LEGO form going through his relationship with Dally and ending with a marriage proposal.

To aid with creating the moment, Anderson employed filmmaker Morgan Spence, a 17-year-old who has been featured on television for his LEGO filmmaking skills.

"He had a big plan to propose to his girlfriend in the Electric Cinema in Birmingham," Spence told ABC News. "He wanted me to produce a LEGO animation describing how they met in a film style almost like Forrest Gump sitting on a park bench. It's a bit cheesy, but that just made me like it more."

During the film, Anderson said Dally elbowed him in the ribs and asked me what he had done.

"She was quite overwhelmed," he said.

Dally said, "Yes," and the two are considering placing LEGO figures on the top of their wedding cake, ABC News reported.

Man, 18, and wife, 71, live blissfully despite 53-year age difference

The age difference may throw some off, but for one Tennessee couple, their love was an "instant connection."

Gary Hardwick, 18, and Almeda Hardwick, 71, of Sevierville, Tennessee, were married in 2015 and said there has been chemistry since they first met at the funeral of Almeda’s son in June of that year, the Knoxville News-Sentinel reported.

"I had prayed about my soul mate for like, two years, so, you know, I was lonely. I had no one, so God sent him to me,” Almeda said.

"When I looked into her eyes I knew it. Her eyes were a dead giveaway,” Gary added.

The couple dated for three weeks before getting married in October 2015. Gary told the News-Sentinel that everyone has been supportive of the relationship so far even if the marriage threw them off a little.

"Everybody was happy for us really," he said. "Like the day after the wedding, I posted the wedding pictures on Facebook, and obviously (they were) shocked that we got married because nobody even knew we were dating or anything until I posted the wedding photos. They were like, 'Whoa.' But, I mean, they were happy for us.”

Gary added that he has always been attracted to older women, and had been in a "troubled relationship" with a 77-year-old woman when he met Almeda. "I've never dated anyone my age. Even in school, I was never interested ... I don't know why. It's just my attraction, my preference I guess," he told the News-Sentinel.

The couple said they share similar interest including traveling, watching movies, cooking and singing with Gary showing Almeda rap music and her returning the favor with hits from the 1950s. They now live together with two of Almeda’s grandchildren -- ages 17 and 22 -- and share their life on a YouTube channel titled "Gary and Almeda Hardwick."

"He's good looking, handsome and he takes pride in himself too," she told the News-Sentinel. "I couldn't ask for a better husband. He's the best."

Man honeymoons alone after wife loses her passport

An Indian man embarked on his honeymoon alone after his wife lost her passport two days before the couple was set to travel to Italy.

But Faizan Patel did his best to make his wife, Sana Patel, feel like she was there with him. 

He traveled with a photograph of her and took pictures with the photo on his journey.

"This is how I am traveling with my wife as of now," Faizan wrote on Twitter, tagging Sushma Swaraj, India's minister of external affairs.

Swaraj responded to Faizan on Twitter promising to help remedy the problem.

Before long, a duplicate passport was issued to Sana. 

But even with the passport, Faizan told CNN that Sana wouldn't be able to make it to the two-week honeymoon due to the painstaking process of getting a visa.

"This trip was entirely planned by her," Faizan told CNN of the Italian honeymoon.

Faizan isn't the only newlywed who has traveled on a honeymoon alone. 

Huma Mobin, a woman from Pakistan, posted photos of her husband-less honeymoon to Greece earlier this summer after her husband couldn't get a visa from the Greek embassy.

Woman, 19-year-old son fall in love, fight for relationship amid legal charges

Monica Mares and Caleb Peterson could face up to 18 months in jail if found guilty of incest at a trial later this year in New Mexico, according to the Daily Mail.

But the 36-year-old woman and her 19-year-old son say they are in love, and they are willing to do anything to fight for their relationship.

>> Read more trending stories  

"He is the love of my life, and I don't want to lose him," Mares told the Daily Mail. "My kids love him, my whole family does. Nothing can come between us not courts or jail. Nothing."

Mares, who has eight other children, said she would be willing to give up the right to see her other children in order to be with Peterson.

"Whatever it takes to be together," she said.

Mares gave birth to Peterson when she was 16 years old. She named him Carlos and gave him up for adoption. He was later renamed by his adoptive parents.

The mother and son met again last year when Peterson was 18, according to the Daily Mail. They got in touch on Facebook, and agreed to meet.

Mares picked Peterson up from his adoptive father's house in Texas on Christmas Day and brought him to her home.

Mares said their relationship started out as a familial one.

"I met him outside, and I knew it was him when he came towards me," she said. "He was crying, and he gave me a hug. It was almost love at first sight, but first it was mother love. He gave me a mother hug. He came home in the truck and came to live with me, and we were both happy as mother and son."

Then, she said she started getting "crazy" feelings. 

"It felt like I met somebody new in my life, and I fell in love with him," Mares said. "At first I told him, 'I'm sorry. I don't know how you are going to react to this. I'm your mom, and you're my son, but I'm falling in love with you.' And he said, 'You know what, I am too. I was scared to let you know.' He was falling in love with his mom, and I was falling in love with my son. We talked about it, and we took off to the park. I said, 'Would you ever date your mom?' And he said, 'Would you ever date your son?' And I said, 'Honest truth -- yes, I would.'"

"I never had anyone cook me meals or give me anything," Peterson said. "I never got anything my entire life, and she went out of her way to make me happy, and after about a week or so, I started having feelings for her, and I guess I fell in love. It went beyond a mother-son relationship. I never really viewed her as my mom. In certain aspects I do, but mostly, I don't. I never thought I was crazy for having these feelings because I didn't see her as my mom. It was more like going to a club and meeting a random person. It didn't feel wrong. It felt normal."

The couple maintained their secret relationship until police found out in February.

They were charged with incest. 

Mares and Peterson were released on $5,000 bond, and Mares, whose youngest children had started to call Peterson "Dad,"  is not allowed to see any of her children, according to the Daily Mail. 

Mares and Peterson are not allowed to see each other. 

"It is every bit worth it," Mares said. "If they lock me up for love, then they lock me up. There is no way anybody could pull us apart, and I really do love him. It hurts (that) he is far away. It hurts really bad. I wish I could see him, talk to him, but I can't risk it."

Mares and Peterson hope to raise awareness of "genetic sexual attraction," relationships in which sexual attraction manifests between close relatives who meet for the first time as adults.
