and be honest.

if your husband/so lost a limb, would you feel the same about them?

how about if you meet someone that IS missing a limb already. would it affect you getting into a relationship with them?

would it matter if they were born that way or became that way. would it matter if it was a arm vs leg/ foot vs hand?
explain your answers.

Of course I would, why would it matter. I dont get how that would change anything.

If my husband lost a limb today, I'd still stay married to him. We'd just have to adjust certain things.



As shallow as it sounds, I'd probably not date or begin that kind of relationship with someone who was missing a limb. I'd have no issues befriending someone like that but I wouldn't pursue beyond that.

I wouldnt care. I dated a guy that has 3/4 of his arm gone. Didnt affect us at all. Now if it were DH it would affect me emotionally yes. Im sure i would always think about the accident or whatever. But i would still be with him and love him

I don't think it would matter to me. It's just a missing limb...not a missing heart.

If I'm already dating or married to someone then yea I would stay with them. It really won't bother me.

I don't think I wouldn't be attracted to him but I would probably be weary of hurting his feelings maybe?
I'd never leave him or think any less of him.



And as far as meeting someone, no it wouldn't phase if i was to create a relationship with them.

Nah. I had a pretty big crush on this guy who had one arm. He would tell everyone a shark bit it off, but he was born that way. haha

This is how I feel, exactly.

I don't think it would bother me at all since my dad is an amputee.

I'm missing the lower half of my right leg
I've had plenty of people dislike me for it and it hurts my feelings. My husband doesn't care And didn't even know about it until I told him And it didn't change his mind about me

It wouldn't affect me at all. If I were married to someone and he got in an accident and lost a limb, I'm sure it would put a lot of stress and strain on our relationship, would it wouldn't change the way I felt. I also would have no problem starting a relationship with someone missing a limb. Although, I would be hesitant if they had a genetic defect causing them to be that way, and it was very likely to be passed down to children.
