I notice or maybe it is just me. Women seam to be the ones who stay in a marriage when their husband's has cancer. Is it because we by birth are caregivers? I think we are use to the dirty diapers, the bad little things that go along with life. We clean the toliets we clean the house. WWe are clearners by nature. We are taught that we are born to be mothers and all the things that go along with it. While men are taught to be a man go out learn that living. Come home to a clean house chean children and so on. Even now with more and more women going out to work most are still the caregivers.
I do know for a fact that my husband is one who would stay with me. But he is also the one who would if asked to cook, clean and do these womanly things around the house. He has took care of me more than once. But I see so many women who's husbands just leave. I don't get it. They must have missed the part in sickness and in Health!
I am mad that so many woman with cancer are lefted by the person who promised to love them and care for them.
We are so living in a plastic world. And easy outs for some people. When I was young my mother told me that my aunt lived with the man I though was her husband because they could not marry the laws were different then . His wife had been declaired menatlly unfut. So he could not divorce her. The men could not just leave their wifes. I am not sure which is better? But I am so sad to see that men are so selfish . I just don't understand who you could leave someone who you loved and loved you.
I am truely blessed and I know this.
