Seeing as I'm gonna live forever, them, always them.

She'd probably choose for herself to die first and I don't want to die.

I'd prefer to die first, but since he's 20 years older it seems rather unlikely.

Congrats on the most depressing question in the world!

The quick, most acceptable and noble answer is that you'd like to die first. However, you could make an argument that you'd rather live w/ the grief of being alone than to make your spouse experience it.

That's actually what I was going to say. I honestly think that I'd deal with it better, but I don't mean it as if I wouldn't be devastated.

No thanks.

I laughed so much^
10 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 2/24/11 - 7:04:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
Me, mostly because I would think I would love the bastards.

I hope so.

i would like to die first, because i don't think i could stand to bury them
i know it's selfish
10 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 2/26/11 - 11:10:23 AM EST (GMT-5)
My spouse.
Only because I wouldn't want them to suffer being alone and all that.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 3/11/11 - 4:27:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
them first, I'm somewhat of a chivalrist
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 3/15/11 - 3:57:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
Them, because I want to live for a long time.
Selfish, no?
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 3/15/11 - 3:58:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
considering women live longer than men on average, science says i will die first.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 3/20/11 - 1:57:53 AM EST (GMT-5)
If I loved them, then I would want them to live as long as they can so I would go first.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 3/20/11 - 2:01:45 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't really want to deal with this question.
Which is fortunate, given that the gender gap + our age difference & family histories means that science has us dying at approximately the same time.
10 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 3/20/11 - 2:40:42 PM EST (GMT-5)

I'd rather die together. I am not good dealing with grief.

For this reason I'd want to be with someone 2-3 years younger than me, but there are no guarantees.

murder suicide eh?

This question depresses me.

My Husband is 27 years older than me and this is the ONLY part of our age difference I have a problem with. I don't like to think that he may not be here someday.

But then I get a little hope because he is in wonderful shape, in some ways better than me. And his parents are 90. My eldest Grandparent only made it to 72, two of them died in their 50s, one in 60s. I have a family history of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and emphysema. Although I do not smoke, I do already have high cholesterol and high blood pressure. I lost my Daddy at 50 and my Mom is nearing 70 but is in worse shape than DH's 90 year old parents. I'm hoping things will even out and that we will die around the same time.
