When a spouse has Alzheimer's disease, and is committed to an institution, and no longer recognizes her or his spouse, and it's been going on for years, is it ok for that person's spouse to seek comfort in a relationship?
Ed said, "My wife has early onset Alzheimer's disease, a beautiful woman age 59, whom I love very much. She is mentally gone now, doesn't know me or anyone else and sleeps much of the day.
"We traveled to Israel and Hawaii in 2007, and it was clear to me at that time that our traveling days were over. The rapid onset since has been very discouraging; she has been in assisted living for two years.
