It’s a very noble decision to stay but a human decision to leave. It doesn’t matter how much someone loves another or what their intentions are, some people aren’t cut out for that kind of life. I would like to think I would stay but I’ll never truly know until I’m in that situation.

Let's say you're in this loving relationship where you know that you found the person you would like to spend the rest of your life with. Then some awful tragedy happens; a disease, a horrid injury, whatever, that causes your significant other to a) become significantly mentally impaired or b) lose both their legs.
This guy went through one of the other possible "outcomes" I mentioned:
He stayed. What I'm asking you is what you would do if you were in this or a very similar situation that completely altered a huge % of your relationship dynamics and your actual significant other? Would you stay? Would you leave? Would you feel it out and see where things go?
For me, I don't know. I'd have to be in that position (obviously) to truly know how I'd feel or what I'd do. But I do know that our age, if we had a child or children, how long we've been together and all that stuff would definitely play a role in my decision.
And gosh sorry for the dark thread, but I was just thinking and trying to imagine how absolutely awful and terrible being in a situation like that would be and what on earth I would do.
