Do you remember the depressed guy who finds comfort with a realistic looking doll? It may sound weird but it is his way to cope up after being diagnosed with a serious illness years ago. Shockingly his story is not a rare one, as there is another man who chose to marry a doll. Yeah, things might get a little bit more weird starting here.

Apparently, the 28-year-old Chinese guy has terminal cancer and was desperate to get married before he dies.

But he didn’t want to leave a heartbroken widow, so he bought a life-like inflatable s*x doll to become his wife.
