Default Would you give up everything you have right now to have your loved one home?

Just curious...Would you give up EVERYTHING that you have as of right now just to have your love one(s) home?

We all go through the phase of "I would do anything for you" "I would give up everything just to have you here with me" BUT REALLY WOULD YOU???

I was wondering..If givin' the chance for your love one(s) to come home but here is the catch...You would have to give up everything you own as of right now..Like..Your car, house, to the last red cent you have!...Would you???

Honestly I wouldn't because that is all that I have to survive on.

I would have to say yeah I would, just because every extra cent I have goes to him. I had to move home with my mom just to be able to afford his calls and to send him money. The only thing I wouldn't give up is my unborn baby.

NOPE... I love him more than any material thing, but I'm too old to start over again. I've been homeless without an income. I would never do it again for anyone.

I gotta agree with MrsD on this one. I love him but even he wouldn't want me to do that. He is more about having things than I am. That would drive him crazy.

I've worked to hard to have the things that I have, I wouldn't give it all up so he could get out of doing time for a crime that he DID commit. It just wouldn't be right. I love him and I would love to have him home but it wouldn't be too much fun for him to come home to nothing because I gave it all up for him to be free. His time will come and when it does, I'll have my car to go out with him in, I'll have my apartment and cozy bed for him to sleep in. so I guess I'll just wait for him to get out when he's supposed to without me having to give up anything that belongs to me.

Yes Absolutely! I would give everything up in a heartbeat! There is nothing I have that means more than him and all that I have is worth nothing without having him here to share it with me!

I would have to say no BECAUSE if I gave up everything then he wouldnt have a home to come home to and that is a necessity to the parole board so I wouldnt give up my home or job....but I would definitly give up material things.....clothes...shoes.........etc for him to come home...........

I believe as a team we're powerful and there is NO doubt we would not be down long and any rough times would pass. I'm weathering this storm.....but....shoot.....I'd walk away from it all and build a whole new life with him. I believe we're both smart and if I can have it once we can have it again.

No, I wouldn't give up every thing for my guy. It's a nice, romantic thought but not steeped in reality. I have teenaged children who depend on me. I have a great job right now, the best I've ever had (I believe) in my lifetime. I'm doing stuff that, although sometimes stressful, does make me happy.

I love my guy deeply. And, maybe someday we'll be married. If he were to ask me to give it all up for him, I'd look at him and ask, "Are you out of your gourd???" I've worked too hard and for too long to get where I'm at now in my life to let anyone take that away from me.

No I would not. It would make no sense to give up everything I own to have him with me, and have nowhere to call home, no transportation, no bed to sleep in, and no roof over our heads. Just like MrsD said, I love him more than any material possession, but I wouldn't give it all up just to have him with me and have to start all over again from scratch.

No I would not. I have done without everything before. I have had to sleep in my car before.
What I have now I am keeping.
He is worth the world to me,and I would give up certain things to be with him, but not everything.
Stuff is not # 1 to me. But having what I need to live and raise my kids is # 1.

Yes I would...Although I've never been homeless, I have however been struggling to make ends meet and I once upon a time moved in with my Mother as an adult with 2 children... It's the mental anquish of knowing that my husband is behind bars and never should have received the sentence that he got in the first...The fight for his home-coming has been an up-hill battle for 11yrs. and counting. So yes if there was an absolute guarantee that my husband would be SET FREE, I would give up every Worldly possession I have for his release...And since I have such a close family (Praise God) they'd do whatever they could to assist us with landing back on our feet...WE fall down BUT WE get back up. Just my two cents. Yet I totally understand and don't fault anyone who feels otherwise. Besides, we ALL have to walk in our own shoes. Peace. Sabrena.

Red face Tricky question...

I would if I weren't solely responsible for my son. If this were 4 or five years ago, I'd do it without a worry. I'd find a way to get by. Since I WANT to provide for my son and his future, no, I wouldn't do it at this point in my life.

I can honestly say I would give up everything material for him, I have lost everything before for no good reason, I couldnt think of a better reason to start over then with him. Also he has LWOP so I wouldnt think twice.

Question no

I wouldn't and that's because if I had to give up everything and he didn't have anything, then we would be struggling bad. That would add even more stress to our lives. It would be nice if I could keep everything and have him too.

In a hearbeat I would give up everything I own except for my two kittens and two dogs and I don't own them. God just lets me have them for a little while.

I certainly am too old to start over, however, there would be the two of us and that would make a difference. He also has plenty of family support that we could make it.

Niether one of us are afraid of working and we would both do whatever it took to get on our feet.

Just give me the chance and bye, bye everything!
