The Man Or Wife?who Should Die 1st When A Couple Is Aged?

In your opinion, who should be the first to die when a couple is aged and ripe for eternal rest? Is it the man or the wife?

In my opinion I think the woman should die first 'because the man is stronger and will able to bear the pain of his loss and he'd be able to shower the wife with love as she lies on her death bed ready to "crossover".

I thought poster said "when they are aged and ripe for eternal rest". No matter how much one loves them, one cannot pray for them to be immortal.

And I would think the father should go first, leaving the mother to take care of things as usual.

Please, never pray death for either of them, cos' both of them are very much important in our lifes.

I lost my both parents 4 years ago, very painful. The plans they had for us was not filfulled before the owner of their lifes took it. It's so sad and painful. cos' we are too young to be an orphan.

My prayer is that God in his infinite mercy shall prevent our parents from untimely death. AMEN

It doesn't make any sense when I hear pple die after their spouse's death (e.g Bola Ige and his wife). Did anyone tell them they will meet eachother again in heaven and start a new life together again? Abegi every man for im own. God is the only one that knows when a man will die. My mom is late. But my dad is still very much alive with his new wife. ( He is over 80 now). Yeah he got a new wife after his wife's death. I'm not bothered about that.

Why don't we just kill both of them since it is in our power to do so. That way we do not have to bother who will be "stronger" in the even of loss.

What a topic!

I am sure some spouses are happier with the other dead to celebrate their long desired freedom.

Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesh!

Good try KDK, you only want her to kick the bucket before you - so you have the opportunity to take a young bride.

what a question!

we all owe death,and we all dont know when we are going to die,

so i dont think that decision of who dies first is ours to chose.

as this yoruba adage says( bo se wu eledumare lo se ise, ko se ni ti o la ba du)

anyone can go first, at there appropriate time.

but if all things being equal, i think its better for men to leave the stage before woman, women holds the house together and can also remain a widower before God call them home,

if it is the other way round, the man after mourning his loss can decide to remarry because of lonliness and by doing that we all know the end result will be a catastophe

Dear forget it you have no choice here, talking about strength, women have more strength to survive disaster than men, studies have shown that. Don't let our macho nature deceive you.

They should both die at same time. That is why i don't like the film "Titanic".

That is not for you to decide, but God. Keep your opinion to yourself at this point.

@oracle thanks dear

@kdk woman die first do you know what that means?

i lost my mum not too long ago and my dad looks like a shadow of his self he's just trying to be strong for me . .but i can see it hurt him so much . .

a woman holds the home together . .she's the lifeline in the home . .the one the kids are closer to . .so let them die alone . .if one goes before the other thats a problem for the kids you know
