    People Do Die. Would You Prefer You Die Before Your Spouse?, or Your Spouse Should Die First? Why?

    The reality is that each one of us will one day have to die, anyway.

    I also thought about this sometime!
    I would prefer if I died first because I dont want to die alone.
    but on the other hand I wouldn't want my partner to be left alone either! and since i cannot know i hope we both live long and healthy lives and grow happy together smile

    I watched my grandmother at the bedside of my grandfather moments after he died, and realized that would be us someday (my husband and myself). I don't like either option. It is a cruel, merciless reality with no benefiting factors.

    If I had my choice I would want my wife to die first so she would not know the pain of loosing me and having to deal with shutting down my complex life.

    I hope that my husband dies first. He is almost 30 years older than me and expects to die first, if I go first I don't think he'd be able to handle it. On the other hand, though I know my old age is going to be extremely lonely, I have time to prepare for that eventuality and have many ways to keep myself busy to try to take my mind off losing him.

    This is a hard question to answer...

    I think though that Id want to die first. Reason being it would hurt to have my spouse die on me first, I would die along with them (inside). My heart would seriously break, and Id feel alone like I couldn't go on anymore....
