Husband with Alzheimer's forgot he was married to his wife of 38 years. He proposed, and they married again.
Michael Joyce's memory, and some of his speech have been snatched by Alzheimer's. The disease is so advanced that he forgot he was married to his wife of 38 years. But he is in love with her, and he is also an honorable man, so he proposed to her on a recent morning. She said yes. "You don't say, 'Oh, we're already married,' " Linda Joyce, 64, told the New Zealand news site Stuff. "So, I said, 'Of course I will,' thinking he might not remember."
