was a robot???? I know, sounds pretty dumb, but just think about it. In the future, maybe there will be lifelike robots...who knows? I'm asking you to just think about the possibilities of this and think about how you would feel if you were married for several years and then found out your spouse wasn't who you thought they were? Have a little fun with this one and give it some serious thought...what would you do?

Have you seen the movie Bicenetenial Man (ugh bad spelling) Robin Williams is the robot man in the movie. I love that movie it is soooooooooo cool. It really makes you think as He the robot -- has feelings and wants to be human so badly. I guess if you found out after several years of marriage that he was a robot and you truly loved and cared for him you would want to stay with him. Now I want to go watch bicentenial man again. :)

I have never seen that movie before. I have heard of it but didn't know what it was about. All I knew it was supposed to be a good movie. Maybe I will have to see about getting it sometime....but I don't watch much TV. But if I do come across it, I will surely consider it! Thanks!

Hmmmm...that would mean no children. So, would I meet him before or after I already have children. Because if it was before, I think it would be unfair because I always wanted kids. If it were after I had kids, then it would be a different matter. I have to admit...I would be hurt that my partner hide such an important fact for so long from me. What would that say about our relationship? I would have to step back to evaluate that! I would also question if he really loved me or if he were programed that way. And if so, who programed him and why? I would want to know these answers because I can not see how a robot would have feelings as we do unless it were programed to respond in a certain way. So, in the end...I don't think I would be able to see him as my husband. Friend that I will always care about, yes. But to be my husband...I don't think I could because I would question so much and the relationship is still shaken from hiding this secret for so long. Had he been up front and honest...maybe it would have been a different outcome because then I would be able to see if he truly feels or it is just a programmed response.

I hope a situation like this shall never arise. This is deceit to the first degree or, should I say, to the highest level. We always want to be fully aware of what we are getting. If it is a human being, please allow me to have one; if it is a robot I desire and I get one, thank you so much. But, a robot for a husband? I should say at this time, that's unthinkable! And I will never look forward to having that day come around.

Interesting thought... I don't think I would be able to see him as my partner, just a companion. Interesting thought... I don't think I would be able to see him as my partner, just a companion. There would be a couple of good points, No arguing, I could do what I want when I wanted. Come and go as I please. If he was a robot he would do anything and I mean anything for me. But how would he keep this hidden for several years? What about children would we have baby robots?
