You’re with someone, they get sick, and you want to end the relationship – should you stay and support them, or is it better to be honest and leave? Someone recently wrote the Ethicist with essentially this question. His answer? Wait it out, at least until your partner is feeling better, more optimistic about his condition.
Alicia Merchant, our guest this week, had a pretty different perspective. She was 23 and in a relationship when she first got cancer, and her partner stayed with her.
There was a lot of interesting stuff that didn’t fit into this week’s episode, so I recommend visiting Alicia’s blog where she writes about her experiences living with cancer: alittlebitworse.wordpress.com
