37 Year Old Man Dies Within Hours After Marrying
Sorry that this guy has died – but for the purposes of my blog, this is kind of illuminating or amusing – NOT that it’s amusing that he’s dead, mind you (truly, sorry he’s passed away) – but that it so acutely points out the problem with the “marriage will make you happier, safer, and more healthy in life” propaganda my fellow conservatives are always peddling.
Obviously, being married didn’t make this guy any happier or more secure, and it didn’t magically improve his health – he’s deceased now.
Getting married is NOT a fairy tale guarantee that it will give you a “happily ever after” ending.
I have more news stories on my blog that are similar – news reports of other people who were killed moments before, during, or after their wedding. You can see some of those similar stories at the bottom of this post, under “Related.”

Oklahoma singer-songwriter Jake Flint died in his sleep hours after his wedding, leaving his new bride heartbroken.

On Tuesday, his heartsick bride wrote: ‘We should be going through wedding photos but instead I have to pick out clothes to bury my husband in. People aren’t meant to feel this much pain.’
The shock and grief were apparent in the Oklahoma music community as word spread of his sudden and untimely death.
Jake’s longtime publicist Clif Doyal confirmed the news of the singer’s death, the news outlet reported.
Jake’s manager, Brenda Cline, announced his passing in a social media post.
‘With a broken heart and in deep grief I must announce that Jake Flint has tragically passed away,’ Cline wrote. ‘I’ve tried several times today to make a post, but you can’t comment on what you can’t process.’
Though it rained on their wedding day, the weather did not dampen the excited couple’s spirits who said their ‘I do’s’ in front of all their friends and family.

Jake Flint, a 37-year-old musician, passed away mere hours after getting married over the weekend.
“We should be going through wedding photos but instead I have to pick out clothes to bury my husband in. People aren’t meant to feel this much pain. My heart is gone and I just really need him to come back. I can’t take much more. I need him here,” Flint’s bride Brenda wrote in a heart-rending Facebook post.
The Oklahoman reported that Flint’s publicist Clif Doyal confirmed to the outlet that the man had passed in his sleep after the wedding.
“He was not only a client, he was a dear friend and just a super nice guy. As you can see from the outpouring on social media, he was loved by everybody. I think a lot of it was just that he was a people person, and he had an amazing sense of humor. He made everybody laugh, and he made everybody feel welcome,” Doyal noted, according to the outlet. “He was an ambassador for Oklahoma Red Dirt music.”

Yep. You can get married but your spouse can die within hours (or moments – see links below), leaving you single again.
Conservatives need to stop over-promising marriage as making a person happier and so on – do you think this guy’s widow is happy now? No, probably not.
She was probably expecting on living many more years together with this guy, not to have to plan his funeral.
