If you love a person and wish to get married but just when you are about to talk of the marriage you get to know that the other person is not gonna live long, will you still marry with that person?

i don't see any reason why not. getting married is taking on the name of that other person (in women's cases) and being proud of the fact that she is now a part of him and the guy being the one who gave his name to a woman. no offense but if practicality hits your mind then that is the only time you'd have second doubts. and the real reason of a marriage is way beyond monetary reasons or hindrances. peace .

I think if we were already talking about getting married, or even if the idea had made itself present, a terminal diagnosis would make getting married that much more important. I think it would be that much more important to make every moment count and if getting married is something that you and your partner really want then do it while you still can.

I cannot answer this question without being in the situation. I would have to know the person. My answer is maybe. It would depend on a lot of what else is going on in both of our lives. You say we love each other, OK. So maybe, if getting married is something that will make this dying person happy, then maybe we can share his last days in married bliss. I don't know. I would have to be involved. I do know it would be very painful to know that someone I loved was going to die. I also know that I probably would want to do everything in my power to make their last days as happy as I could.
