I find it very admirable also, because honestly, I don't think I could "handle it". I would go into a deep depression -as this is a grieving that the majority couldn't begin to understand, the magnitude of loss. And what this does to the soul of the victim - I can't even imagine. Christopher Reeves was a Saint... so was his wife.
This is also one of the reasons I would be near terrified if my husband wanted a motorcycle, not worth the risk....my Moms 1st BF died this way. My dad used to hill climb, he was lucky, never had an accident.
Me & my husband has talked about the "What IF's" of something THIS earth shatteringly tragic coming upon us...... I did a long post on how WE feel...others may judge, but they are not married to us...or know our hearts. My post HERE
I have a hard time judging anyone faced with this coming upon their marriage. I would count it one of the most difficult heart wrenching marital journeys a spouse could face in this life.
