If the person you were engaged to was in a car crash and became a paraplegic, would you back out of the marriage? If not, what if they became a quadriplegic?
I thought this question looked familiar and, yeah… I’ve used it before. Way back in the Question of the Week from November 28, 2015. I’ve been able to keep these weekly questions going thanks to an updated edition of The Book of Questions. Apparently, some of the questions from the old book have been repeated in the new one.
My original answer still holds true… 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.
But what about you? How would you handle that situation if it were to happen? Let me know in the comments!
