This is coming after it was reported that a woman rejected a man’s marriage proposal, after receiving his kidney in order to save her life. The man Simon Louis proposed to Mary Emmanuelle, after nursing her back to health following both their operations and was saddened when she said no to his proposal.
He had carried a torch for her over two decades and had secret hopes of spending the rest of their lives together. But Mary gently rejected his proposal, though she loved him back, because her health made the future seem uncertain.
However the pair vowed to remain friends and Simon, 49, said: “I offered her my heart but I had to settle for giving her my kidney. Whatever happens, I’ll never regret giving her the gift of life.”
And Mary, 41, added: “He is my very best friend and always will be. The love between us is real. He could have died doing what he did for me.”
The pair first met in a London club in the mid-1990s with Mary, then 20, thinking Simon, 28, was “a good-looking bad boy”.
