Necrophilia is a form of sexual intercourse or attraction towards the corpses. Like most countries, France has its own bizarre laws and practices, part of which is the law backing necrophilia. France and some other countries allow necrogamy, a kind of marriage in which one of the participating members is dead. It is also called posthumous marriage. The reason as to why the practice was made legal was as a result of a sudden dam broke which killed four hundred people.

Necrophilia is a form of sexual intercourse or attraction towards the corpses. Like most countries,
A woman who lost her husband to be, pleaded with the then president, Charles De Gaulle to allow her to continue with the wedding. As a result of this, after some months a law was made permitting that kind of practice. According to the law, anyone who wants this type of marriage will first send a request to the president of France and the president will send it to the justice minister before the wedding can be granted.
