tough question maybe but I think that love and the desire to share everything I could with that person would override any fears. what about you?
absolutely. true love is hard to find.
I think it would be so sad to be alone. death is a passing.
It is a personal choice and depending on how you are handling the emotional part. Will you be happy that you share the time that person have left? Will you be devastated after the person passed away? Are you already having a long term relationship with the person?
As apposed to not being devestated by the "sudden" death of a spouse?????
Not being nasty just getting a perspective. I'm torn between wanting to marry again and of course being quite upfront and Not wanting to put that extra baggage on someone. There are no guareentees in life but I'm thinking most of us would rather take our chances with the unknown rather than go into a relationship that is already limited for time.
If I was in Love, absolutely.( were all dying, with someone that is sick you just have a better idea of when.)
(and if she was rich...lol)
yes lets not forget the rich part lol lol lol
goofy guy lol lol
what a coincidence..i was thinking about the same question yesterday..and found the answer to be really easy....if am in love with the person...for sure..no doubts about it...rather i would marry the person at the earliest !
That's a tough one. In theory, even a short time with someone you love is better than no time with that person.
I think the movie "A Walk To Remember" says it best.
And yes it's just a movie, based on a novel, but there are others out there with the same mindset....one would hope!
I not only would do so; I DID do so. Pam and I'd been together 9.5 years when the feds started cutting her SSI (disability) check for no good reason (assuming she was practicing fraud, which she most certainly was not). So we got hitched and told the govt. to take their money and go p*** up a rope (in slightly more civil terms, of course). This was May 19, 2006.
By which time she was known to have brain demyelination with probably both Parkinson's and Alzheimer's beginning to develop, COPD, and a host of other ailments--quite a few of them progressively degenerative--which would take far too long to list here. She's also SMI (Severely Mentally Ill).
No complaints so far.
If I loved someone I would marry them if they had a hump and lived in a bell tower
Ghost32, your a man of great passion and humanity, may God Bless you in lifes journey
If I (ever) fall in love and if I (ever) decide that it's serious enough to take that step, all illnesses/disabilities/appearance/etc will be of zero importance.
We all Have a Terminal Illness....
Do you know your Date of Death?
Actually, I do. December 16, 2024.
Actually mine is hanging over me at this moment. didn't say before cause I wanted extremely truthful answers to a very personal question to help me decide some things.
Thanks to all
I think that kind of decision is too personal.
It doesn't matter what our opinions are, you'll have to find your own .
Extremely sorry to hear you're in that situation. But I have a very good feeling you'll make all the right decisions. Best wishes and take care.
And I'm only an email away if you need me.
thasnks sara, actually I'm doing quite well with the whole thing but there are changes and things are different now. kinda like a whole new mindset for everything lol My family refuses to talk about it and sometimes you just need someone elses eye on things with out pity gettin in there.
Yes, a dream. And I'm not a believer in prophetic dreams. I lean toward the psychoanalytical interpretations of dreams -- and I question those too!
But the dream I had was like nothing I've ever had before or since. Very hard to describe but it chilled me to the bone. I can't help but wonder if it'll come true.
The bummer is... If it comes true, I won't be around to say "I told you so!".
I thought the doctor will give the length of time left!
Just a thought... if I was myself terminally ill, I'd never ask anyone to marry me. Ask him to move in perhaps...but no, not marry....just doesn't seem fair to anyone really.
if they were very rich and signed everything over to me, when they died, then i would make their life comfortable until their death for them.....
If I loved the person of course I'd marry him...or her.
Love isn't about money or only the nice, perfect things in life.
my comment was tongue in cheek, and after The Rope's comment maybe not a nice thing to say, i take it back........ it was only a joke.....
I think in my case if I met them when they had the terminal disease then probably not but if they had the disease during the time I've been with him then I guess so.. easier said than done.
I mean I'll be a friend and support in any way I can but not sure about the marriage part.
I was diagnosed terminally ill six weeks after we married. I offered him the easy out and he would not take it. He has walked this walk with me and has not waivered, for which I am grateful. Life is what it is.
Feel free to email me Artsy if I can help. And you are in my thoughts and prayers, Holly
That's a very good question, and really something to think about. Would I marry someone with a terminal illness?
If I would really love that person more than anything, YES. But if not, if it were just .. a fling, it'd not take the risk. The pain from his or her death would be enormous when that person would take it's last breath.
love is a strange things dear...logics fail and the best of you overpowers u..!!
