 So one of my good friends called the other day, I havent talked to her in forever mainly because her work schedule is insane. But she told me that her husband went to the doctors and they found something wrong with his spine. Apparently whatever it is called (i cant remember) causes this 30 year old to have the spine of an 80 year old. I guess if he gets the surgery, there is a 70% chance that he will be paralyzed from the chest down for the rest of his life. If he doesnt get the surgery, he will definitely be paralyzed within the next few years. So, we were discussing it and I was extremely sympathetic, wow that is awful, he is so young, you are going to have to stand by him, ect....NOPE she straight out said she is filing for divorce because she is 27 years old and she doesnt want to have to take care of a man, she wants a man that will take care of her then she asked what I would do. My answer: "I would take care of him! I would do whatever I could to help him out daily. If that means getting him dressed, helping into the bathroom, helping him shower, i would do it. I said for better or worse, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer til death do us part. I took that seriously." she said so you would throw away your life like that. I had to hang up. So my question to you ladies is this; If god forbid something awful happened to your S/O or DH, could you walk away and not stick it out to help him?

 I would NEVER divorce my husband over something like that! To me that is incredibly selfish and immature.

 that's how i feel. its not like he can help it. life dealt him a shitty hand, she has 2 kids with him and i think she should tough it out. I did ask her what would happen if he got the surgery but it didnt paralyze him, would she feel like shit? she said nope, i need to live my life for me. *grrr* lol

Of course i would stay...

I married him because of how much i love him. I could never leave him when he needed me most....only a selfish nasty person could do that.

It's obvious that she never really loved him.

 no i dont think she really does love him. it was more of a convenience marriage.
