I asked my husband this question and his answers "I think so, not 100% sure".  


Wow! Lots of answers lol.. Thanks ladies.. also for the people calling my husband an ass,loser, etc.. I dont think he meant it to be mean.. He said no one can be 100% sure unless they are in that situation. Sometimes its easy to say "yes i would stay", but battling any life threaten illness can cause stress on the relationship and even change the person dealing with the illness.Some people with the illness become bitter, mean, and push their spouse away.. sadly it happens.. He wasn't saying he would leave me for anyone else or give up.. He is just very upfront and said most likely he would but no one can say 100%

Qoting PeppermintyTea: Yes. I can't think of any reason I wouldn't....

Without a doubt I'd be there every step of the way. He was for me when I was in a coma with possible brain damage and at that time we had only been together a little over a year.

Your husband is an asshole. 

Absolutely, I would  1000% stay, without a doubt! 

They need you at this time more than ever!

I don't know. Him having cancer wouldn't be what would cause me to leave him. Him becoming a bitter, world hating, anger ball who was abusive would cause me to leave him. Some people don't handle things like that very well, and you never know if a person does or doesn't until it happens.
