At 27 years old, Gayle Shann met a terrible accident while renewing the garden fence in their cattle and horse breeding farm in Central Queensland, Australia. Her right arm was torn off while her left arm was crushed; though the arm regenerated and looked alright, it does not have much functional use. She is essentially armless even if you can still see one of her arms.
During their wedding, Gayle’s husband Mac had vowed to love her through sickness and health – the situation clearly challenged the vow but Mac stepped up and accepted it. He even upped the ante by not just becoming his wife’s personal caregiver but also her stylist!
Mac did almost everything for Gayle – from feeding her and brushing her teeth to bathing and dressing her up. But you’ll be surprised to know that he also does her makeup!
As her personal stylist, Mac had strong opinions about what clothes Gayle should be wearing and how her face would look but judging from their photos, it is clear that this guy clearly has good taste in clothes and knows how to doll up his wife!
Even today, thirteen years after the accident, Mac continues to be Gayle’s personal caregiver, stylist, and husband rolled into one. Sadly, though they had discussed it from time to time, they never got around to having kids. This conscious decision arose from the fact that having kids around would not only double or triple Mac’s care duties but would also make Gayle feel incompetent, knowing that she could never become a hands on mom to them.
Still, what this couple has achieved in their marriage is quite incredible! Even without having kids, they continued to enjoy their two-member family and led a wonderful life. Mac continues to dedicate himself to caring for his beloved wife.
In a world filled with news of break ups and divorce, it is great to hear beautiful news of a forever kind of love…
