Would you care for your ex-husband if he were dying alone?

It is not uncommon for ex-wives to step into the fray when a former spouse is dying ...

  • My mother and father had been divorced for about 10 years when my dad was diagnosed with cancer. My mother had remarried, but dad had not and still cared greatly for my mother. To her credit, she visited him daily at the hospital and then hospice.

  • I have two ex husbands and given my first ex is newly remarried hopefully his wife would be there for him. My 2nd ex and I have a love/hate relationship and probably always will. If he were dying I would probably help him out for our sons sake. I wouldnt want my son to have to nurse an ailing father.

  • My first ex yes we are still friends and I would do anything for him just because we couldn't live together as husband and wife doesn't mean I couldn't be there for him as a friend and a father to my kids - I wouldn't want them to have to take care of him either. Now, my second ex HELL NO!

  • It would depend on the circumstances. Did we have an amicable relationship after the divorce. If I've re-married, what does my husband think about it. How are my children affected. I believe I would.
