Till death do us apart movie review

On youtube, under Christian short movies, I found a 13+ minute long film, made in 2012. It is called- Till Death Do Us Part.  I enjoyed watching it and here is my review:    After ten years of marriage, a man has begun to feel distant from his wife. He started having an affair with a co-worker. One night, he asks his wife for a divorce. He offers her the  house, the car, and 30% of his business, but she refuses. She doesn't want their son to see his parents split up. Eventually, she agrees to the divorce, but on her special terms: 1- That there be a one month waiting period;  2- That their son not know they are divorcing;  3- That he carry her every morning in his arms from the bedroom to the downstairs. He agrees, and everyday he carries her down the stairs. He starts to notice that as the month goes on, his wife is feeling lighter to carry. He thinks he is just getting stronger physically. Also, he starts feeling closer to his wife again. Intimacy had been missing for so long, and now it is starting to return. He tells his girlfriend, Jane, that he has changed his mind and no longer wants to divorce his wife.  She is angry, but his mind is made up. He is in love with his wife again. The one month is over and he rushes to buy flowers for his wife, and rushes home. When he gets there, he finds she is lying in bed, dead from cancer that he never knew she had. She knew, but didn't want her husband and son to know , so that their last days together could be happy. He cries and is sorry for having been so selfish. The movie teaches that marriage is forever and that the couple should be intimate best friends,  because you never know what the future will be, so cherish the time you have together. A very sad, but inspiring film. Love God. Love your husband and wife. Love your family.
