How many of you want to die just this way?

How many of you would like to die just the way the two characters in The Notebook did? Lay down together one last time and go to sleep and just don't wake up again. I think that would be the way to go. Instead of them being the first to go and you are left to grieve them and carry on. And why not leave the family at the same time too instead of one at a time? They just get used to one being gone and there goes the other one. Why not leave them at the same time? What do you think?

I think that is the best way to go. You can lie there with the one you love and hold onto them. I don't know about anyone else but Im a little afraid to die, so when I can be held by the one I love and care about it would make it much more comfortable. Although dying isn't something I want to happen soon or anything. I just believe that if the two hearts that die together who love together, for eternity will be one.

I am too and it would be nice to have my companion[hope i have one at some point] beside you to hold and go to sleep with that last time. It is comforting anyway to go to sleep next to him and then if it is the last time, only better.

I love that movie! You know..the older couples I have known that have been together for many years do seem to go around the same time. Within a few days of one another. I know at least 6 elderly couples like this. It would be the way to go for sure..going to sleep with your soulmate.

I would just love to die like that. No, it would definitely not be easy for my kids, but I think for me it's just the best for my fiance and me. It's just the most beautiful way to day. It's a perfect ending for this movie. I don't think that there is any other way for either of them to die. I would love to die like that.

Spending your other life with your love one.. undying love. I and would agree. I think it's a romantic way of showing your love.

it is romantic but selfish, let's say you are 25 years old and going to die, you die with your spouse the way you say, which sounds so beautiful but what about your babies that you live behind, they lose a mother and a father, sorry these kids no grow up with no parents, one parent is better than another one. one parent may die first but they other one can live many, many, many years longer,

Well, I am not talking about dying when I am 25 or so. I mean when I am more ancient that I am right now. OLD. I think then it is long past being selfish. We do for our families and then can't we leave the way we want? And I think this way is romantic but also saves the famiy alot of added pain.

I agree with you 100% - I have seen so many family memebers suffer so much after losing either their spouse of their life partner. Seeing them go through that has given me a strong understanding of the bond the two of them shared and the heartache they suffer after no longer sharing it in the day to day lives. I've also seen some other family members stay connected to their spouse or partner spiritualy, but it didn't carry the same weight as being with them physically. (It was better than nothing for them, so that was positive.) After seeing all of this pain, I really know for sure that I'm NOT looking forward to facing this reality and would MUCH prefer dying together....

I have never seen that film but it sounds like a perfect ending, and it would be a brilliant way to go. This year I have seen a family absolutely destroyed through one half of a couple dying and so to have an ending to it that could be like that would be lovely.
