Moral Dilemma Answered
I came up with an interesting moral dilemma (I think that's the right term for it) yesterday. I want to see what people think of it and what their response would be. It goes something like this:
Imagine that you are in a relationship (if you are already, you can use your current partner as an example). Things are going well, you're both happy, etc.. One day, the two of you come across a mysterious pair of rings in a local market. You ask the vendor about them and he tells you that they are magic rings. If you each put them on the other person's finger, you will become bound to each other and will not be able to remove the rings unless one of you dies. Should that happen, the surviving person if confronted with a decision: they can either continue to wear the ring, until they die, and be guaranteed to be bound to the other person for eternity, even in the afterlife, or they can remove the ring, thus breaking the bond. Should they choose to break the bond, they will never see the other person again, not even in the afterlife. He also tells you that, as long as you wear the ring, you will never be able to be in another relationship.
Knowing all this, if your partner were to die, which would you choose: Keep the ring and never be able to be in another relationship, but be guaranteed to see your partner again once you die, or remove the ring and be unable to see your partner again for all of eternity, even after you die?
Leave your response down below. If there's anything you don't understand, or need clarifying, just ask and I'll see if I can make it easier to understand.
