A South London man donated his kid-ney to the love of his life says he’s fine with her rejecting his proposal. According to Vibe, Simon Louis and Mary Emmanuelle first met in the 1990s at a club in London.
They have been together for eight years, and in one of the most selfless acts of love one could think of, Louis donated one of his kidneys to Emmanuelle after finding out she had end-stage kidney disease in 2014.
“I couldn’t believe it – I had been given a lifeless sentence. My name was put on a ‘lifeless donor’ list. I could only wait,” Emmanuelle recalled. Shortly after discovering he was a match, Louis proposed to Emmanuelle.
But it wasn’t received in the way that you’d expect. “I let him down gently by saying I’d have to think about it,” she said.
“I think I’d worry if we got married it would in some way lesion our special friendship and also I don’t want to get wed until I’m fully better health-wise.” Despite the rejection, Louis said he doesn’t regret anything he did for Emmanuelle. “I didn’t think twice about it. There’s no question about doing something like that for someone you love.”

Michael – Love is two way street. he should found a way to know if his love reciprocated. if not, then why put himself in the situation. it’s not her fault if she doesn’t wanna be married to someone she’s not in love with common sense.
Felix – Some days are just bad days, that’s all. You have to experience sadness to know happiness, and I remind myself that not every day is going to be a good day, that’s just the way it is!
Sam Watson – Women have always crazy mentality when ever they need you they will cry when ever you need them they will Lough at you . That is natural you women grow up please.
