By now you've probably heard the advice Pat Robertson gave to a man who asked about his obligation to a wife with Alzheimer's:
Robertson was asked what advice a man should give to a friend who began seeing another woman after his wife started suffering from the incurable neurological disorder.
"I know it sounds cruel, but if he's going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over again, but make sure she has custodial care and somebody looking after her," Robertson said….
Terry Meeuwsen, Robertson's co-host, asked him about couples' marriage vows to take care of each other "for better or for worse" and "in sickness and in health."
"If you respect that vow, you say `til death do us part,'" Robertson said during the Tuesday broadcast. "This is a kind of death."
Here's an alternative view from Robert McQuilken, a man who resigned as president of Columbia Bible College and Seminary to care for his wife who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's.
