I mean I think most people expect that they would eventually. A lot of people do in my limited experience, especially if you're fairly young.

Personally I just don't know. I'm very attached to my SO.

would you be ok if your SO moves on?

This is a strange question, but what makes you so attracted to you SO or someone?

Well yeah, it's not a nice thought but I suppose you can't expect them to be alone forever.

I think "ok" is a broad term. Realistically I have to accept it. I'd want him to be happy. On the other hand, I hate the thought of that. Weirdly we have talked about this before.

Personality and intelligence are big for me. Physical attraction tends to follow.

Depends what the universe has in store for me.
I’d hope that if it were the other way around they’d be able to find someone to make the rest of their life happy.

Depends on age, if I have had children, if the children are still living at home, financial situation, if someone actually came along I liked.

I am not against doing it, just I know I wouldn't' be able to move on quickly especially if we were together for a long time....I am still getting over a crush I had 3 years ago that I haven't talked to or seen, who knows what I'll be like with someone who actually liked me back.

I'd fully expect my SO to move on if I was for some reason to pass away though and would have no problems with that, especially if our children were still at home.

I find it hard to love someone so much knowing if I was not there, I would be replaced and this love is temporary.

People do it when their SO is still alive so why not

It's never a nice thought but you can't really dwell on these things. You don't have to die for their love to be temporary as they could break up with you while you're still alive. These are risks we have to take, you just have to accept it and not focus on it.
