If it were the only way you could remain with the love of your life, would you be willing for both of you to wake up tomorrow as native speakers of an unfamiliar foreign language, knowing that within a week you’d permanently forget the languages you now speak and largely be cut off from your friends and culture?

If the person you were engaged to was in a car crash and became a paraplegic, would you back out of the marriage? If not, what if they became a quadriplegic? What if you found that the person you planned to marry would likely get Alzheimer’s by his or her 50th birthday?
Would you like to be famous? If so, for what? What if you knew it meant that within a few years you’d lose all your current friends and never develop new relationships that were as meaningful?
