Marriage & Alzheimer’s

by admin on

A man and his wife have been married for 60 years. She developed Alzheimer’s and it became progressive. It caused her to become more and more detached. She eventually lost her memory and control of her bodily functions. After some time, she didn’t recognize her husband at all.

He was then asked by his friends:

“Your wife is gone now, she lost her mind and now she’s just a body… Why don’t you put her in a home?”

The husband replied: “I can’t, she’s my wife.”

His friends replied: “She’s not the woman that you married. She’s completely gone now.”

“Yes, he said, but I’m still the man that she married.”
