Legal question/ debate: If someone died for 2 minutes are their wedding vows "'til death do us part" void as they TECHNICALLY died?

I just had a thought, if 2 people get wed and one of them died but gets revived, are their vows void because they technically died?

    The words in the vows do not really matter.  The marriage is still valid.

    well if it was a lame marriage then you have precisely 2 minutes to quickly marry someone else lol

    Also you don't need to worry about the divorce cos they're dead! lol

    but hurry,  thats 120 seconds before your partner comes back to life lol

    No, they did not die. There might have been a MISTAKEN declaration of death, but since the person "came back to life", he/she did not actually die. Legally, morally, religiously (most serious religions), death is not death unless it is permanent. No

    zombies allowed.

    As for reincarnated as celery ... what if they reincarnate as tomato? Is tomato a vegetable or a fruit?

    Uh... babe... marriages are not void, but they are voidable, and may be held to be void ab initio. The procedure is called annulment. When a spouse dies the marriage ends. The procedure is called "death." But suppose they die and reincarnate as celery? Then you're married to a vegetable. Life is just so confusing.

    What does "technically dead" actually mean ?  Cobblers.  If you technically die, someone should put a bullet in you just to make sure you technically stay dead.  You DON'T come back from dead - technical or otherwise.

    There was an inmate in a federal prison who made that exact claim after he was pronounced dead during an operation and later revived. He argued his sentence was up when he died. The court didn't buy it. He's still locked up.

    The "till death do us part" stuff is part of a religious ceremony, and has no legal standing.

    Courts have always recognized that the meaning of death is staying dead. That's why we don't constantly have lawsuits over contracts where one signee died for 30 seconds but came back and will no longer fulfill their end.
