Ok so as the title say what would you do for the one you love? by this i mean you have been married to someone for 50 years you have been through all the good times and the bad with them but now they have been struck down with a terrible ilness which as it progresses is going to put your loved one in a serious amount of pain would you be able to sit by and watch your loved one in so much pain and when they tell you that they would rather pass on than be in so much pain and will you help them to do that would you be able to say no? or would you be able to say yes because of your un dying love and devotion to that person that person whom you have loved for the last 50 years. Will you also be able to do what ever is needed for that loved one if they are ill and can not do things for them selves? even if it means helping them eat thei meals or helping them get bathed would you be able to do this? In our society today this is one very big question i know in the uk you are not allowed to help another person end their life if it means it is by your hands but i do remember seeing a news story aout an old man who helped his wife die after she could stand her ilness no more, this he did out of love and the courts took mercy on him but they would not do so with someone younger. Are we as a society ready and willing to do wht is nesecerry for our loved ones no matter what it may be? please share your thoughts...........

The hardest part of lovong someone is letting them go. I believe I could do anything, at least I hope I could, one never knows how you will cope with a situation until you are faced with it. I'd have to be without doubt that "helping" a loved to pass on was the only action to take. It would be the hardest situation to to face. I would definately give my life for any of my children, any body part with out doubt. This discussion brings forward many thoughts and emotions.

it most certainly does, the whole thought within the topic will touch upon anyone who has been or is in a similar situation, i think though at times it is good to know that you are not alone out here and there are always other people who are in the same boat as you or going through a similar thing as you are you are never truely alone.
