I absolutely agree, it's about having a loving companion, someone who won't give up on you even at your worst, the woman in that story held onto her husband until the bitter end, and he finally realized what he had.

I actually knew of a similar story to this that actually did occur, or at least it's someone my parents had heard of.

I teared up! This is just so nice... I don't care if it's fake, it isn't meant to be real, it's meant to show how important intimacy is. I want to send this to my mom and step dad somehow. They've been fighting a lot lately.

It is a decent story i will say that however. I think it has plot holes but i think it'll be rude to just pick it apart. So i'll leave it alone.

Man, that's deep. I feel for the wife, I truly do. Memories are meant to be treasured and once you do something, you can NEVER take it back, no matter how hard you try. Even if this story was fake, take the time to read it. Now go back and read it again because I know you skipped through it!

If you want a real experience I'll give you one.

I think I was 20 years old when I met my fiance. I had dropped out of college after joining a fraternity and partying my first year away into failing grades. she wasn't what I had always dreamed my wife would be at the time. It may seem cruel to say this but most of my previous girlfriends had been physically more attractive than her. Our relationship took off like a rocket though. She is the kind of girl who walks into a room and everyone wants to talk to her because of her bubbly, fun, and outgoing personality. She was my opposite. She took all the attention off me and had no trouble accepting that. She was funny and God she loved me like crazy. I don't know that she even saw another guy when I was around. But I screwed up. Because my amazing new girlfriend helped put my life back on track I went back to college and had gotten my ~1.8 GPA up to a 3.4 We had fun every day and loved each others company very much, but that didn't stop me from developing feelings for another girl I had a class with. I made it clear to my girlfriend that I had made a friend at school who was a girl. At first she seemed ok with it. I didn't want to leave my GF out of the loop so I would tell her if something happened with my new friend on random days.
I didn't realize that I was making her uncomfortable. By keeping her in the loop I was actually just letting her know how much I thought about this new girl outside of school. She became angry one day and made me delete her from facebook. then everything changed. my friend at school was very upset and although I hadn't realized her intentions may be beyond friendship before. I was starting to think that now. But that only made things worse. She was very beautiful. and knowing that she might be crushing on me seemed to only make me flirt or pry with questions that would give me the true answer. It turned out she did really like me more than a friend, my infatuation with her led me to believe that I felt the same way. This girl is a 10 and she has a crush on me? wtf!?

I told my GF that I liked this new girl and it was horrible. She cried, tried to come up with ways to win me back and everything.
.......and although I ignored it, I did still care about her deeply.

One day (I never moved out from my GF's) she told me I had to choose to stay or go and If I was gonna stay I had to tell this girl I would never talk to her again. tough spot, but I know I deserved it. I never cheated on my GF physically, but I did mentally, and I also put her through a lot of pain.

I believe I made the right choice in the end. I told the other girl it would never happen and that I couldn't talk to her anymore, but that didn't fix it. Me and my GF have never been the same. I've stayed here because I know its my fault everything changed and I hope one day things will be like they were. Not knowing what you have until it's gone is so true. She was so devoted and loving and always cared about what I wanted or my feelings, she was perfect for me in all the ways that mattered. She accepted my geeky hobbies of Anime, videogames, magic the gathering, D&D and I don't think that she ever really cared that I was good at sports. she didn't need that, She liked that I was smart but would have settled for hard worker I suppose. She loved me for me and I loved her for her,
but I dont know if I'll ever have that again because I was lusting over beauty.

This story definitely relates to real life, my story was very similar. My fiance is still here though. and I still have a chance.

That is a really touching, but sad, story. Real or fake, it almost made me cry.

A reminder to enjoy the little things and to appreciate the people who mean the most to us.

Something or someone that we have today may be gone tomorrow...

First thing I did when I found out I had cancer was to tell all my loved ones. I knew I might die, and decided that telling them, no matter what our current situation or conversation was about, was the best option. I did it directly - explained the facts, the risks, and the treatments. Everyone listened and at least knew what was going on. I could have died, either from the cancer or the treatment, but at least I'd given them the best updates I could about what caused it, and that was important to me. I didn't want them finding out after I was dead that something was wrong (and that it made me bald).

That evening I arrived home, flowers in my hands, a smile on my face, I run up stairs, only to find my wife in the bed -dead.

... Deathnote?!
