IvanHo13 posted a topic in Lite & EZI have been organising singles meetup for my Facebook friends for few months already and generally, I do not allow 'married' people into my singles event. But recently, a guy messaged me, saying he is 'separated' and ask whether he can turn up for my singles events. I just want to check with the folks here on the legal status of 'separated'.

Twin separated in marathon operation dies: newspaper AFP - Wednesday, July 30SINGAPORE, July 30, 2008 (AFP) - One of two conjoined Nepalese twins separated in a marathon operation in Singapore seven years ago has died in their homeland, a newspaper reported Wednesday. ADVERTISEMENT Ganga Shrestha, eight, died after admission to hospital on Monday with meningitis, The Straits Times reported. "I will always remember her feisty spirit... At least now, her spirit is free of her disabled body," Singaporean neurosurgeon Keith Goh was quoted as saying by the newspaper. He was one of the lead surgeons on the team which separated Ganga and her twin sister, Jamuna, during a 97-hour operation in 2001, the paper said. The children were joined at the head when they were born. Singaporeans raised more than 660,000 dollars (now 484,000 US) to help the babies, and the surgeons waived their charges. The operation left Ganga with brain damage and Jamuna unable to walk, the newspaper said, adding that three years ago they returned to Singapore for additional treatment. Then they returned to Nepal. Jamuna drags herself around on her arms. Schools in Kathmandu have refused to enrol her because part of her brain is still unprotected by bone, the newspaper reported. It quoted her grandfather as saying she finds it hard to accept the death of her sister, and cannot stop crying.
