For better or worse, or just for convenience?

It is always easy to stick around when your partner is succeeding and is seemingly healthy, but the real test of love is in the time of serious illness and financial struggles. Would you really stick around in your partner's time of need? We asked several women and some of their responses might shock you.


I lost my husband several years ago and it was really rough in the end because that was when his illness was at its worse. But I had to do what I had to do to take care of him because I love my husband up this very day.


I am not sure I am that type to nurse a sick man. Not to sound cold or anything, but should my man fall into a predicament, I would hire someone to take that on because that can stress you out to the point where you start withering away too. But I give women who do that a big thumbs up for going through that.


I would stick to my husband. I mean, I have been doing that for years from him getting laid off from his job to us living with his mother and me getting pregnant not knowing how we were going to survive. I am not the type when things go bad to replace you with a new man. I think once a woman really loves her man, she going to be right by his side through it all.


Once the love real, I am staying by you through it all, but if it is not solid, it's best I remove myself.


A lot of women are saying they would stay by his side but straight up, they are lying. Even if a woman stays by her man's side through an illness, she is going to cheat because if a man cannot be intimate with his woman, she will cheat. More women need to speak the truth.
