Lisa Niemi's "a leap of faith" decision
In 2009, her hubby of thirty-four years, Patrick Swayze died because of pancreatic cancer. Nearly after four years, Lisa found love again in Albert DePrisco, a Boston based Diamond Jeweler.
She first met him through a mutual friend, and since then, both of their feelings are mutual for each other. In an interview with People, Lisa said,
"I have to say, that the love I have for Patrick was never in Conflict or competition with my feelings for Albert. That is until Albert asked me to marry him!".
Furthermore, she confessed that the decision to marry Albert was "a leap of faith" for her. While deciding on accepting the proposal, Niemi flipped-flopped in her own words. It was tough for her to make the final call.
"I found myself grappling with my feelings of having been married to Patrick for 34 years! Privately, I flipped, I flopped. Yes, get married, no, don't get married".

The Wedding Details...
For the auspicious day, the couple invited nearly 50 family and friends. She was now ready to move on! Lisa walked down the aisle in a beautiful white gown in Florida.
On May 25, 2014, in Palm Beach, Florida, the couple exchanged their wedding vows. Albert prepared a cushion-cut diamond eternity band as a wedding ring for her.
More than anything, it was Albert's heart, his generosity, and his strength that took Lisa's heart away. His confession of love to her and the strength he provided her helped her to move on. In an interview, Niemi revealed when she became more and more sure to marry him.
"Albert knew I still loved Patrick and would always love him, and told me,'and I know you love me, and I love you'. How could I not marry this man?".
She further added,
"As I had time to process the change my life was going to take, my doubts became less and less, and I became more and more sure".
The Reception and After Party...
No wedding is completed with an amazing after party. For the reception, the pair performed their first dance in front of their guests. Lisa is an actress, so it was easy for her while Albert was a little cautious while he danced his way through.
The dance was a blast, and the whole hall erupted with cheers. Their love was so infectious that it spread to all the guests while they all danced and had fun on the way.
We never wanted to have Kids!
In an interview, Lisa admitted that she and Patrick should've had kids. The couple wanted to have kids more than anything, but they never did.
In an interview, she regrets not having any children. She said,
"Both of us always wanted to have kids. Just for whatever reason that's something that didn't happen and something that, you know. I have had regrets about. But some things, you just have to live with and be grateful for the things that you do have".
Well, for now, she is a married woman again, and Patrick might be giving his blessing for her better future.
