The Question Club
In these scenarios, you all have a SO. One day, your SO gets trapped under some ice at an ice rink. She/he is under for 15 minutes, but is revived. However, there's some brain damage, and some amnesia. Your SO only sorta recognizes you, and due to the oxygen deprived to the brain, they've been reduced to a 3rd grade intelligence. His/her family is taking care of them, but your SO will never recover. Do you stay with him/her?
Yes. I love my SO and we'll work past this
No. I would want to do the right thing, but I couldn't be with someone with irreversibly low intelligence
Your SO is diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder. The nature of this disorder is that it slows the metabolism severely. Science is working on a cure, but there's nothing to combat it. In one year, your SO gains 50lbs, despite moderate exercise and observing their intake. Depressed by the futility of it all, your SO starts to pig out more on junk food. Would you stay with them?
Yes. It wouldn't matter if they ballooned to 500lbs. I'd still love them and want to be with them
No. As much as I do care about my SO, I couldn't deal with someone that's probably going to be over 100lbs from when I first met them
It turns out your SO has 4 kids you didn't know about. They were in custody of their ex-spouse (who you also didn't know about). The ex up and dies, and the custody is now given to your SO. The kids are 5-8 years old, and the ex raised them with little to no supervision, so they're brats. Both you and your SO are stressed out, but he/she will not pass the kids on to any other relatives because it isn't the right thing to do. Do you stay with your SO?
Yes. Bunch of annoying kids is not enough to deter me from my love for my SO
No. Either I'm not into kids or not into this amount of responsibility and sacrifice. I'm outta here
Your SO gets a good job (if they don't have one already) and after 6 months, the company plans on moving to a small industrial city in Guatemala. Your SO is making good money, and wants to follow the company to South America, and asks you to join him/her. Your SO is making enough money where you don't have to work, but you will have to give up your family and friends, at least for the forseeable future. Do you go with your SO to Guatemala?
Yes. It's only going to be for the next few years probably, and I couldn't stay away from my SO
No. I'll miss my SO but I can't leave all this behind to live in a crappy city in South America. We'll try the long distance thing and see how that works out
