Woman Marries Her Own Grandfather in Elaborate Ceremony

It was unbelievable what was happening to Xuewei's family. They didn't know what to expect after they learned she was getting married soon. She had already chosen a wedding dress, settled on a venue, and hired a photographer. It was all a bit odd.

Everything was starting to come together; all she needed now was her groom. Her grandfather will take that role, and nobody can sway her decision.

Giving Her The Best

Fu Xuewei

Xuewei's life changed drastically after her parents divorced when she was a child. Her parents arranged for her to live with Mr. Fu and his wife. She moved to Chengdu, China, and her grandparents took guardianship of her. They tried their best to give her the best life possible.

She happily grew up in the simple and loving environment they provided. But they could never have replaced her parents.

The Reason He Woke Up

Mr. Fu adored his granddaughter with all of his heart. She was the reason he woke up in the mornings, and she made him look at the world with a new perspective.

She was fortunate to have grandparents who loved her more than anything and the world and worked hard to give her the life she deserved. They had a special place in her heart, and she thought of them as her parents. However, having older parents has its disadvantages.

Living Abroad

Xuewei attended university in Switzerland and then Singapore after graduating high school. She was able to maintain her relationship with her grandparents despite not being in the same country anymore. They were everything she had.

She frequently talked to them about her studies, her problems, and how her day went. But moving out of your country is more challenging and fun than some may have you believe.

Going Home

She moved back to China after finishing her studies and started her new career while keeping in touch with her grandparents. They were getting old, and she knew they didn't have much time left, so she had no doubt she was doing the right thing.

It was difficult for her to be far from her grandparents. She had to go home to help them because they were getting older.

Spoiling Them

After graduating from university, Xuewei established her career as a successful entrepreneur. She was living her life to the fullest, and because of her hard work and dedication, she lived comfortably too. With her newfound financial success, she took care of her grandparents.

She took them on holidays abroad and even persuaded them to go with her to nightclubs to reminisce about their earlier years. She made every effort to make sure they enjoyed their senior years.

They Were Getting Old

Her grandparents' problems became more serious the older they got, and soon they began to struggle with everyday tasks. It was awful to think about leaving them. Xuewei feared that something would happen to them and that she wouldn't be there for them when they needed it most.

This led to her staying close by at all times, even if it meant that she had to give up her personal time. The realities of the couple's age soon confronted the family. Xuewei doubted she was ready to deal with what was about to happen.

Bad News

A few days before her 25th birthday, she received some devastating news. Her grandfather, Fu Qiquan, had become severely ill. Doctors told Xuewei that he didn't have much time left.

Although this wasn't the first time Mr. Fu's health had taken a turn for the worst, it did remind Xuiwei that time was fleeting and that she should cherish every moment with her family. She was determined to make the best of the situation.

She Loved Him Very Much

At the time, Mr. Fu was 87 years old. He had dealt with heart difficulties for many years, and two years ago, he suffered from a stroked that left him paralyzed. This forced him to spend many months in the hospital. Xuewei could tell that her grandfather's condition was getting worse every day.

After that, she hardly ever left his side, but she couldn't help but feel that wasn't enough. She needed to figure out a way to show him just how much he meant to her.

Doing Everything For Him

Xuewei hardly left her grandfather's side. She brought him food and made sure he was well cared for. But she wanted more - she wanted to help him achieve his greatest goal. He had always dreamed of attending her wedding.

There was only one problem: she wasn't dating anyone and wasn't planning on getting married anytime soon. But she was determined to do whatever it took to please her grandfather.

Fulfilling His Wish

At that time, Xuewei's professional ambitions took priority over her personal life. She didn't know if her grandfather would live long enough to see her get married.

She prepared a surprise for Mr. Fu that would make him the happiest granddad ever since she was unwilling to let anything stand in the way of his wish. But she had to keep everything a secret for the time being.

Taking Some Photos

The time had come for the big reveal. Earlier that month, Xuewei had taken her grandfather to the hospital for a checkup. She casually mentioned taking some photos that day as they pulled up to the hospital.

Mr. Fu nodded in agreement. Xuewei's grandfather could barely stand when they arrived at the photography studio, but he soon realized it wasn't an ordinary photo shoot.

Making His Dream Come True

While putting on a beautiful white wedding dress, Xuewei dressed her grandfather in a classy suit. The theme of the photo shoot was a wedding. She always wanted her grandfather to give her away at her wedding, and this was the only way he could do it.

She wasn't sure if he would live long enough to see her real wedding one day, so she wanted to make sure he had a chance to give her away now. The pictures are proof of how truly magical that day was.

An Amazing Gift

Xuewei and Mr. Fu also took pictures in a small chapel, bringing the overall experience even closer to an actual wedding.

For Xuewei, it meant the world to see her grandfather's happy smile when he turned to look at her. It was a smile worth immortalizing, so she did the only thing she could think of.

Remembering Him Forever

Xuewei tattooed Mr. Fu's face on her arm to immortalize his smile forever on her body. She had the image of her grandfather tattooed on her arm because she wanted her future children to know who her guardian angel was.

The pictures from the photoshoot went viral in China, and the grandaughter's kind gesture to her grandpa touched everyone's hearts.
