This is a real tough one.

    As gay marriage becomes more common so will questions such as this. And what will make decisions like this more excruciatingly difficult is that its far more likely that there won’t be adult children to help. Plus, I can't believe that Pat Robertson of all people would think its ok.

    Think you meant it's far more likely there will be no children to help. I also think you mean that you can't believe Pat Robertson would think it's OK.

    PS there are many straight couples with no kids, and couples where the kids have long left and have no interest in looking after a parent w/Alzheimer's.

    When Pat Robertson gets to Heaven and meets God's hot black, lesbian girlfriend, I hope he doesn't die of a heart attack.

    A simple solution to this problem.

    Just kill them.

    Wait you mean he won't be dead when he goes to heaven?

    That explains why heaven sucks and why he has no soul after all.

    I'll fix it. I gotta wake up first before I do these things.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidWell if this is going to be the new trend in marriages then they should remove the vow that asserts "in sickness and in health, for better or for worse" or "till death do us part."

    What a fucking asshole.

    Let's just toss away anyone who 'pulls us down.' Spend thirty years with someone and then s/he gets Alzheimer's? Hey, no problem, throw them away and find another mate to marry and be happy.



    I suppose they'll replace it with "while convenient"

    Yeah, I can't believe this came from Mr Christian himself: Pat Robertson.

    This hits close to home – I am back home to help with my mom in the early stages of Alzheimer’s and my frail and feeble dad.

    When one forgets (alzheimer's) another remembers.

    Pat Robertson is forgetting the depth and power of a great love...

    And P.R.'s been criticizing women in getting abortions because it was too convenient and didn't fit their 'lifestyle'?...

    theantijock saidI lost my mom to Alzheimer's Disease. And though I would not want to see her continue to suffer with it, I'd rather have her still in my life with that God damned disease then to suffer life without having her here to love.

    Pat Robshitson and his entire KKKlub are scum.


    As much of a scumbag as most of the of the televangelists are, I hope that it turns out that he was badly misquoted as this is cruel beyond belief. This is not only NOT Christian, but inhumane to abandon a spouse in such time of need.

    I'll probably be stoned for throwing this out there but what do y'all think about someone not divorcing but having an affair if their spouse has advanced stage Alzheimer's - basically where the body is still present but the mind is, except with fleeting moments of lucidity, pretty much gone? What about after five years or ten years if the spouse is in an assisted living facility?

    Btw, there is a really heartbreaking movie exploring this theme - Away From Her. Definitely worth checking out.
