    1. Ah! So difficult though! I’ve only ever heard of one man who acted in this selfless way by letting his wife go BECAUSE he truly loved her. Hubby of a well know actress whose name I can’t remember.
      I don’t think it’s a common human trait. I don’t think hubby 2 would see it as love. But you’re right in that there’d only be 1 unhappy person rather than 3! πŸ™‚

  1. Can’t reinvent the past. I would choose the pill and move forward. Who knows? The soul mate might not turn out to be the husband he used to be. I would stick to the new husband. However I would maintain a good relationship with Tom Hanks as he is the father of my children.

  2. In this situation, I’d stay with my new hubby. Vows are vows and if my former hubby was assumed to be dead then my new one is where I belong… sorry.
    This being said, I have often told my hubby that if anything were to happen to him I would never remarry. He is my one and only and my kids have one dad. I couldn’t even begin to imagine loving someone else as much as I love him. (sappy right??!!)

    1. I HAVE NO IDEA! Loool! That’s why I ask! πŸ˜€
      Thing is I’ve even had some time since I wrote the post to decide and I haven’t been able to yet. Plus I keep changing my mind with each comment I read. πŸ™‚

  3. Hmmm, I wrote a reply, but it got lost in translation. So here it is again.

    I would defo go back to my darling love who,s been freaken lost at sea, fighting orca’s, living on raw fish, I mean God knows what my love has been through!

    I would go back because while married to David, I couldn’t stop thinking of Ken! So what’s the point of staying with David now that kens back, and it’s not as if he left me, he was TAKEN!

    I’d keep the kids involved with David as he’s been a good dad, and now “bonus” for them, they get two dads!

    Besides, if I didn’t go back to Ken, every time he came near me, well you know what that heated electricity does……… Lol

  4. Well a tough one.. but life is such we can’t turn it back..
    If it was me I will choose the red pill.. because to me I made a decision and stand by it.

    Maybe that’s how it was to be always.. who can say that had the first one not been in coma.. We would still be together. .

    1. A tough decision maker. Like it!

      I wonder though…with the 2 of them in front of you, one holding a large teddy bear and on his (her) knees and one with special jewelry you both exchanged …staring at you with pleading eyes looking pitiful…
      could you still be that tough???!!!! πŸ˜€

  5. I say, since you can’t be married to them both, that you divorce the one you are married to and have a relationship with both men. If it works, you’ve got the best of both worlds. If not you are no worse off than if you’d chosen to stay with the wrong one.

  6. Oh my goodness! This is a tough one.

    If I go the blue one I go back to the man I love most deeply but first there’s the divorce. After that, he’s missed a decade of my and my children’s lives. He doesn’t know them and he’s got his own issues to deal with after being alone for so long. But of course he’s still the man I wanted all along.

    If I go the red one I turn my back on my true love. I skip the divorce but there’s tensions, my husband can never be sure I’m truly committed to him and my children are confused. There are custody issues and I feel obligated to help my previous husband reconnect with his children. But I love my husband and I made a commitment to him and our life together.

    Red Pill. I thought my husband was dead and I grieved his loss. Obviously I had moved on with life enough to fall in love again. While I loved my first husband, and will always love him, I made a commitment to my second husband and the vows I made to him are as real as the ones I made the first time around. It’s not going to be easy but it’s the right thing to do.

  7. I had a fiancΓ© pass away years ago, so I actually think about this every so often, now that I’m in a new relationship with a wonderful person. Of course I still have a lot of love and emotion tied up into my fiancΓ©, especially since he passed away so suddenly and unexpectedly, but that’s all in the past. Sure, the situations aren’t exactly the same, but I think I would stick to with the current one, yet hopefully build a friendship with the One Who Was Dead. Should my emotions pull me distinctly against what I originally assumed, then I’d follow my heart that way and hope the current guy understands. But I spent so much time getting over the first one that I think my heart would be stubborn enough to not want to go back.

    The scenario is definitely a weird thing to think about, but, sometimes, I can’t help but wonder, just a little bit.

  8. Who’s to say that there must be a binary solution here. We do not live in a black and white world. There are numerous hues all around us. Likewise, there are an endless variety of solutions beyond red or blue if we choose to consider them.

  9. This is a tough one. Would be an incredibly hard decision for the wife to make. I’d hope she would take the blue pill, but by then things would have changed dramatically. Great question!

    1. Ha! it IS a toughie isn’t it? It always interests me the non linear, grey area type situations life throws at (some of) us – like a Sophie’s Choice scenario and wonder what I’d do in the situation!
