    according to the research, post-SCI marriages have a much better prognosis. i don't have any hard numbers, tho.

    I can tell you that she is right. Rand had a conversation with Colin for awhile during a visit and when we left he told me that he sure loves her a lot.

    The role model (or roll model) for this question.

    Interesting question. One couple came to mind very quickly. Christopher and Dana Reeve. An incredible couple who will be greatly missed by many. That is all that needs to be said.

    my husband and I (husband is T6 complete) keep talking about this. It is natural to think that he will be a burden etc. etc. I told him that as long as he isn't an a---hole and as long as he is kind and good to me, AND..... as long as he maintains a positive atitude, I will be with him forever. We have been together for almost 18 years!! (highschool sweethearts). The same rules still apply... Be nice, be respectful, and don't cheat on me !!

    To post my two cents, my wife told me she wanted a divorce 3 weeks after I got home from the hospital. We weren't having problems before this. Oh well true colors were revealed.

    You are better off without her Mark. In time someone else will come along.

My son is 28 and is a C1-2 as of last April 17th and I believe his and his wife's faith and our strong family and church family is a great asset that will make all the differnce. Sandy
    This August I will be married 17 years to my wife. 2 years 7 months post injury.
