Ever watched the movie Pearl Harbor?

Do you remember the scene where Rafe McCawley had volunteer to join the Royal Air Force's Eagle Squadrons and was later shot down in the English Channel and everyone thought he was dead?

Everyone (including his love interest Evelyn Johnson and his best friend Danny Walker ) assumed that Rafe was dead in battle, and shortly three months later, Danny and Evelyn started to develop a relationship together and started "making love". Then suddenly Rafe came home with everything attached and still alive, and found out that his lover and his best friend had been together.

Now if you had watched the movie, you know what happened next.

So what I'm asking you is "What would YOU do if you were in Rafe's position?"

Like how would you have reacted, when you found out that your lover and your best friend had been making love behind your back when you are out fighting for your country?

I want to know what would YOU do, not what would Rafe do, since I already knew what he did.

For me, if something like that happened. I would ditched the chick and the [email protected] all together. I would probably never talk to them ever again.

Well that's just me. I might not be as cool as Rafe and take it up like a man, but I'm not him.

Depends on how long ago it was because I do believe in people moving on and finding happiness. But I would not be able to be bestfriends with him anymore.

I would thank him for looking after my woman, and then move on to some other outlet for sexual frustration.

O.o, Looking "after" your woman? He had sex with her, and even to the point of getting her pregnant! Your telling you're going to thank him? LOLOLOL. You are one calm dude. If it was me, I would have let hell broke loose.

Likely. I would rationalize knowing that they would presume me dead from combat and seek each other. On the other hand, I might feel pretty heartbroken. We can't ignore the fact that love is due to an imprint of your partner in your brain. When a bond is broken, neurochemicals go absolutely nuts. The effect might be lessened given how time spent from home and other factors come into play. If anything, I would be happy to see that I am alive and capable of finding a new living.

That's a calm way to think about it. But if it actually happen right in front of your eyes, I don't think you have time to think about what to do. I can't really imagine someone not get shocked after they found out that the one they love was dating your best friend while you were gone. Even if it was 3 months. I would have expected my partner to be a little bit more faithful and wait like a year or so until she started dating again.

It was only 3 months, since you left for the battle. I also agree that people needs to move on and stop sticking to the past, but don't you think 3 months is a little too soon?

I feel like, she saw a lot of him, in his bestfriend.

The movie Castaway with Tom Hanks also comes to mind.

I would be more forgiving, especially since it's a war and the chances he survived that crash are miniscule. It is understandable that the two people who cared for Rafe most would bond like that and find comfort in each other, because others outside their little circle couldn't understand their pain and loss like they could. It's not the same as finding some random person to date within 3 months.

It even strengthens platonic relationships. Two people who knew a deceased close friend but prior to his demise were more casual friends may become as tight as brothers, because they share a need to console themselves with the most understanding people around them.

So cut them some slack. They honestly thought he was dead.
