Fifty First Dates....would you?

Bignuf Bignuf
I just saw one of my old favorite sloppy sappy movies on TV, "Fifty First Dates". I wondered, however, how many people...male or female, in the world, really would pursue someone with that level of mental damage, and put in the kind of effort that would be required, daily, and for life, to form a relationship? I think it is different if you are already in a relationship and someone suffered a head injury, but would you seek to start a relationship with someone who had no clue on earth who you were....every single day?

Plenty of people have Alzheimer's and Dementia. Most of them don't get abandoned by their loved ones. I would say that it depends on if the person is worth it

Very true. However, I was really not wondering about someone staying in a relationship they already had...but if they could form such a real and loving relationship, with someone who didn't have a clue who they were, in the morning? It's the premise of that movie. Really interesting topic if you give it some thought. It is a syrupy sweet movie...but would it, or could it, go down like that in the real world...for anyone? Just curious.

I feel like it depends on the people involved. Some elderly people meet new loves after their significant others have died, thus putting them in that very same situation. I think that, if the person with the memory problem is worth it, others might stick around. Yeah, it's rarer, but such cases in younger individuals are rare as well. Furthermore, often times these people are incredibly nice, since they don't remember any of the bad stuff either.

The effort involved in maintaining that kind of relationship would simply be exhausting. I would perhaps be quite a novelty for a few dates but after that... no thank you.
Not to say that I would abandon my long term partner if something happened, but initiating a new relationship... no

I don't think I could do it. If you are already in a relationship and something happens that's completely different.

I can think of a few ex's that this particular situation would have made my life easier (you know the ones who think they're over their ex, but they're really not). But to put in that much effort into beginning and maintaining a relationship, the guy would have to be exceptional. I'm talking near perfect for me. Then I think I could put in that effort. Having seen the movie, I'd be able to skip a few blunders though. LOL.

I've only seen the Adam Sandler version. That was my favorite movie for a long time.

Obviously if it were my husband, I'd stick with it. But a big issue I had with that movie was her kid at the end. She made a VERY good point earlier on about how effing freaked out she'd be to wake up every day pregnant. I wouldn't want to put someone through that, and especially not put my kid through that. I would hope I could overcome the love drug and get outta there!
