    Question :: Let Us Get Deep ::

    Say you met someone and fell in love with them... and a few months down the line, they tell you they have AIDS / herpes / cancer, etc... what would you do ?

    AIDS / herpes - You can get it. With AIDS, you can die from it.

    AIDS / cancer - You can lose them and you'd marry them knowing this.

    I just thought I'd pick some brains. Lets be honest.

    Would you want to continue the relationship and marry them ? Why or why not ??

    Depends if they were 'the one' but I prob wouldn't. Kick them to the curb. I like girls without lumps, lesions and virus'. Call me superficial, but I don't dig that crap.

    What do you mean "The One" ?

    And how would you know if he or she is "The One" and not someone else?

    You can love someone and them to not be the one you are supposed to marry(in my view anyway). Virtually all of my married friends say they just knew that person was for them. That's what I mean.

    It will all depend if she knew ahead of time.....if she knew but never bothered to tell me then I would probably leave her cause I could not marry a woman who was not honest with me. If she just found out and told me then I would not leave her.

    I would tend to agree with this line of thought also.

    Wow. Umm, honestly. I would have to examine our relationship based on what God's will. Honestly, I have fell in love with females that i didnt marry because it wasnt God's will for me to marry them. Everything has to be taken into consideration in regards to marriage. So honestly, for me it would depend on what God wants, and my obedience. I'd be kinda upset if i find this out 2 months later. Especially if I coulda and wanted to fell into sin but woulda caught aids at the same time(it happens yall). I dont think the love would change for the person by love's definition, but I do think our involvement would change based on our relationship with God and where he is leading us.

    For Me STD strait up NO, cause I dont mess any girl that is not virgin that's my standard. Cancer I could deal I the risk of losing someone I love to it but if it is true love that's eternal then I'm willing to take the risk but will I, isn't set in stone.

    The Bible doesn't support the theory of 'The One'...

    So... anyhow, you love this chick.. She's supportive, Godly, etc.

    You'd just bounce on her ?

    Nah, definately not, but if God's not putting the two together, it shouldnt even be a question. If He is, then He'll make a way.

    If it IS God then, even if dude walks away, he'll come to the realization of what God's will is (hopefully) and come back. God's got someone for everyone (that going to be married). Shoot. That man may be the one that is able to get her healed.

    No, prob not for me though. Then again, it would have to be a pretty strong voice of God for me and my stubborn ways to submit to it. That's all I'm saying.

    My initial "super" spiritual response would be that if I was sincerely in love with this woman, I believe I would stick by her.

    But than I thought about the Aids thing. Now for some reason it can be done. For example, Magic and his wife, but my funds ain't as long as Magic's to be getting treatment and medication. This is a tough one. I guess I can't honestly answer unless God was going to test me through a situation like that.

    hmmmm im starting to rethink my response when it comes to AIDS......cause 1) sex is an important part of marriage 2) You can die from AIDS......so thus I will be putting my life at risk when I marry this girl. I dont know good question sis.
