Everybody claims to be in love or has been in love at one time or the other of our existence on earth. And although many say love is blind, the big question that most people will want to avoid is, will partners die for each other in the name of love?

This question as usual took Bridget Amaraegbu to town and the answers she brought back were as diverse as can be. Check them out:

Who takes care of the children,
Ngozi Nwaneto, Nollywood Actress

No way.

Why must I die for my spouse. If I die for him who will take care of our children. And besides that, death is an individual thing and in heaven there is nothing like spouse.

When Jesus Christ was dying on the cross, he could have asked his mother to die for him to stay on, but he had to die because he had already been created for that purpose.

So I will live for the purpose for which God created me. Everybody should die for himself or herself.

I will cos I can't live without her,
DJ Bombastic
Yes I will do that to save her life because she is my life and I can't live without her.

I can do anything for my husband, Ayo Adesanya, Nollywood Actress
For love, why not. I can do anything to save him if the situation warrants.

It's best to die for a cause, Michael Dada, Executive Director, ZMC
I can die for my wife because I love her. Death is inevitable and we all must die one day. If I die for her, it is death and if I don't, I will still die one day. Above all things it's good to die for something rather than live for nothing.

I will die for my wife but...
Basorge Tariah, Comedian/ Actor
I can die for my wife, but I won't die foolishly for her. Let me paint this picture, if l can save my wife from certain death like flooding which I know I can handle, I will save her and become a hero. But it will be foolish on my part to stand in place of my wife and take a bullet meant for her, that will be foolish.

I will if,

Mary Uranta, Nollywood Actress

For love, I can do anything for my spouse. I can die for him if that is what it will take to express my love to him and especially if that is the meaning of love. I can do just anything to save his life.

I came alone,
I will die alone,
Kate Effiong, Nollywood Actress

No I can't. I can't do it because that kind of love does not exist anymore. In Romeo and Juliet, yes, but that was mere fiction. I came to this world alone and will return to God alone.

A man's got to be a man— AY, Comedian

That question has been asked over time and it goes beyond a vox pop. I know we can both die for each other, but a man's got to be a man and live up to his responsibility. If it comes to that, she has to wait behind and take care of my baby. I can die in her place.

I hope I don't have to prove it, Efe Omorogbe, Entertainment Consultant
Wao! I hope I dont have to prove it, but I will do so. My wife and I have gone beyond mere loving each other, we are friends. And so it's a natural thing to want to protect her.

No way! If I die for him, who will die for me? Vera Nwoha, Nollywood Actress
Ah! No I can not. If I die for him who will die for me? After dying for him, he will wake up and marry another woman. So every person should die his/her own death.
