Only the French... 

You gotta be freakin' kiddin' me...

Woman marries dead boyfriend

A 35-year-old Frenchwoman became both bride and widow when she married her dead boyfriend, in an exchange of vows that required authorisation from the French president.
According to French law, a marriage between a living person and a dead person can take place as long as preliminary civic formalities have been completed that show the couple had planned to marry. Before the ceremony can take place, it must be approved by the French president.

I don't know which is weirder: the fact that some loon actually married a dead man, or that the Prez had to okay it. Why stop there France? Shouldn't all the realllly big decisions like that be made by the UN or something?
