Love these days has got the new definition. A woman, whose husband died on the sofa after she told him he could not sleep in their bed, has now found love with his brother.
Ashley Murrell, Mum of three, 33, said she had argued with her deceased husband, Mikey, about his long hours at work.
After trying hard to fix things up with her husband, she told him to sleep on the sofa. The following morning, she discovered that her husband had died. But the post-mortem report states that Mr Murrell was choked while he was asleep, but the exact cause of death has yet not conclusive.
The beauty therapist from Somerset, Ms Murrell, discovered later that her husband, who worked as a carpet cleaner, had been putting in the extra work so the couple can go on a trip to Prague for their anniversary.
A few months on and Ms Murrell has now reportedly started a relationship with her brother-in-law, Chirs Murrell after the pair apparently helped each other through the grieving process.
“Chris and Ashley have been through so much but they have really been there for each other,” an unnamed friend told The Sun. “It’s strange how from something so awful, something good can happen. They are really happy together.
“They’ve had so much hate and negativity because of their relationship but them being together doesn’t change how Ashley felt about Mikey.
They added: “Chris has been a huge support for Ashley and he’s great with the kids. It’s funny how these things work out.”
Ms Murrell shared a picture of the couple surrounded in pink hearts on social media and Chris commented three red hearts on the image
Speaking out about her husband’s death, Ms Murrell urged others to spend “every moment” with their families.
“I felt so guilty,” she said. “I was so angry with myself for making him sleep on the sofa. I still find it so hard to think that my last words to him were out of anger.
“When I found out he’d been saving to take us on an anniversary holiday it was awful – Heartbreaking doesn’t begin to cover it.”
She added: “Losing Mikey has changed my entire perspective on life. Life is too short to go to bed angry and not to spend every moment you can with your family.”
