This rather randomly popped into my head.

Would you consider it more "emotional" (however you want to define this highly loaded term) if a person lost his much-loved spouse to:
a) a long-term coma that the spouse never awakes from
b) being fatally wounded by taking a hit in sacrifice

Assumptions:
1) Naturally, both partners love each other very much.
2) They have children.
3) There is an extensive family "support system".

Discuss.

Scenario A, cause the fact that it drags on for a long time would be much more agonizing. Not to mention you'd be embedded with a false sense of hope.

A) would indeed be more emotional, for the stated reasons, but i think B) would be more "tragic"---if thats the right word.....
