Would you consider this as a compliment or an insult if you were this man's better half.



Personally, I'm on the fence.

I can see the veiled compliment but if it was said to me I wouldn't hear it that way

Depending on his history with the ex, I'd say it was a compliment. If he re-married the ex, she'd get stuck with the funeral bills, and he'd have set me free to do what I wanted. evil4

I'm with Shylass, at least it wouldn't be on me to pay the bills.

I think I'd be more offended, even if he wanted to re-marry his ex because it eternity, be it good or bad, he still rather be with her than me in his final days. So, bye, be gone.

I see how some people would look at it as a compliment, backhanded one, but a compliment... I think most people would look at it as you would rather spend your last days on this earth with someone you divorced and dont love rather than be with the one who loves you...

I look at it as a husband asking his wife to please stop asking him stupid questions.

Jokes should be phrased as jokes. If you left it like that you deserve the hot water you are in.

I agree that it's a backhanded compliment. Putting the fact that it's a joke aside, I think it makes him pretty selfish. He's going to be dead in a year, so instead of thinking about spending the time helping his wife, he thinks of a way in which he can make himself want to die.

That's just my opinion though, I am sure others will have different views.

In the moment I'd probably slap the mess out of him but then once I calmed down and realized what he was saying I would A apologize for being a bitch and B take solace in knowing that our marriage was working out much better than his old one.

Just sounds like a joke to me. Some people should lighten up a little.

Your post just made me think of the movie P.S. I Love You... THATS what a man with a year to live would do for the woman he loves...

It is a movie about this?? No wonder that he made a joke out of it.
I imagine scenario where she made him go watch girlie movie, than she was insecure and needy enough to demand the same from her partner what she saw in the movie, lol, no wonder he laughed at her.

I actual prefer the book, having read it several times before seeing the film, I just didn't think the film matched up to the book, but then I think that is mostly always the case. If you enjoyed the film, and haven't read the book, then I highly recommend it.

Exactly!

I would laugh - it's not a compliment or an insult - it's just meant as a joke.

As a joke (because I truly don't think the guy was serious)? I think it's hilarious. I would have laughed if my husband said that to me.

This. I'm a little astonished that people are taking this so seriously.

This thread is a bit like asking for a consensus on why the chicken actually crossed the road, in the belief that the chicken actually existed. It's blindingly obvious there is no chicken.

Apt analogy.
