Why Be Married? For the Kidney

W

Chip and Cindy Altemos of South Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania, have called off the divorce they both thought they wanted. A week after Valentine’s Day this year, Cindy gave Chip her kidney.
According to an AP article on CNN.com, Cindy said, “There was no way I could walk around with two kidneys and he had none. It was the right thing to do.”
“Chip Altemos said his wife’s gesture put an end to his new relationship and to talk of divorce. The two will be married 17 years in October.”
