The bodies looked 'pathetic'... is what you meant. They still could be happy and satisfied , how beautiful is that. Also, who would force two terminally ill persons to marry each other... like 'arranged terminal marriage' or something?.. I don't think we have gotten that low yet. Their life their choice, as long as they arn't making anyone else miserable, and plan to draw a bit of joy out of what is left..why not?
