If the person you were engaged to marry had an accident and became a paraplegic, would you go through with the marriage or back out of it?
It’s tough to say how I’d respond in that situation. I assume that if I was in love enough to be engaged to someone, then I’d be in love enough to weather whatever storm would come along. That means that if my betrothed was suddenly confined to a wheelchair, then I would be able to help her get through all of that. Doesn’t matter if it was temporary or for the rest of her life.
