This situation was actually presented to me. A man I'd just met told me he was married and his wife had been dying for years from a degenerative disease. She loved him so much she wanted him to begin to "find somebody" before she died. (He also said his grown children were on board with the idea.) Would you date him? (or her, if reversed)

Thanks for your thoughts. Excellent points all.
Thanks. Very interesting. It's amazing how differently we can all view the same issue.
Thanks for your answer - very thoughtful and caring point of view. By the way, this situation happened a while ago and I made my decision then. I chose not to post the results here, just so I didn't affect the answers.
Thanks for your input. I would think almost anyone would be less complicated than this man - or at least less bizarre.
My condolences on your husband's passing. I think your point of view is a loving, humane one - sad to think there are people who would think of themselves first in a case like that.
Thanks. Great answer.
Thanks for your insights. I'd actually never thought about someone doing this for sympathy...this question is turning into a learning experience.
