    Bride-to-be Rachelle Friedman and her groom, Chris Chapman, give new meaning to the marriage vows pledging to love, honor and support one's partner "in sickness and in health." One year after the bride was paralyzed from a freak accident during her bachelorette party, the couple will marry. The dance instructor made news last May when during the poolside horseplay, she was pushed in the shallow end of the pool by one of her bridesmaids. She told ABC News that she knew immediately something was wrong. The 25-year-old said, " I instantly just stopped moving." She told her friends it wasn't a joke and to call 9-1-1.
    The bride-to-be was paralyzed from the waist down with the wedding one month away. The two postponed the wedding, but their commitment to each other remained strong. The two will finally exchange vows and honeymoon in Fiji.

    Chapman, who teaches middle school science, said he never thought, "'What am I going to do?' It was 'What are we going to do.' … It was one step at a time." The 28-year-old groom will be by his bride's side when her father wheels her down the aisle. The bride has refused to name the woman who caused the accident, who will also be attending the wedding. "She was tragically hurt, mentally and emotionally," Friedman said. "And I was tragically hurt, physically."
    In the past year, Friedman has become active, learning wheelchair rugby and texting with friends using her knuckles instead of her fingers.
    For his part, Chapman can't wait to be married. "I'll be happy and relieved to see her coming down the aisle," he says. "It's something we've been working on for quite a while."
    The two will tie the knot on Friday.

    Inapendeza saaana ukisoma na kuona... Very impressive... Wenzetu tunaweza ona wametupita saana na mapenzi yao ya kweli BUT The truth remains kua maisha yao na yetu tofauti saaana, jinsi ya kuishi, mipangilio, budgets and the like... Kaka yetu wa Kiswahili akifanya hivyo it is suicide for him, huyo mwanamka amtegemee kwa yoote, yeye ndio msomi wa kwanza kwao hivo ukoo woote macho hapo - hamna kama wadhungu kua wao wanaishi kama wao... sie haiwezekani... mke na mme hamuishi in isolation... when you are married to your husband you are married to the whole ukoo... mara harusi, mara ugonjwa, mara misiba, mara mtoto wa mjomba ada... kazi kweli kweli....

    Hata hivyo nampongeza mkaka... He is one of a few Great Men remained.....

    Asha hata wazungu wenye moyo kama huu ni ngumu kuwapata. Nimesoma comments Yahoo, kuna mdada anauliza kama bwana harusi mtarajiwa ana kaka ili amuoe.
