Alzheimer's Blogging:

Every marriage has challenges but when is the challenge make it OK to divorce your spouse.

Check these out:

As  I listen to this I am not sure he is saying to divorcee I think he is saying that if you are going to have another relationship you need to divorce first.  Yes he says the spouse is gone like a walking death, but I am not sure he says to divorce just because of Alzheimer's.  He also says that he is not a authority on this.

"I know it sounds cruel, but if he's going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over again, but make sure she has custodial care and somebody looking after her," Robertson said.

I think the words IF HE'S GOING TO DO SOMETHING HE SHOULD DIVORCE HER. Although I didn't think he would really condone divorce.

If you spouse has Alzheimer's please look for a good support group, a good doctor, and  good family support.  It is a hard job taking care of a person with Alzheimer's but it can also be a rewarding one. I do not regret taking care of my father in  law, but than I was not married to him and I can't put my feet in the shoes of a spouse with Alzheimer's.

An example of wedding vows: I, (Bride/Groom), take you (Groom/Bride), to be my (wife/husband), to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do us part.
