Sure, I would wake up my Bride. For one thing, if it truly is the end, we'd both like to be conscious and together. Secondly, I know for a fact
she would want me to wake her up. Third, assuming the end is not constructive -- we have proceedures for a scenario similar to this, and if not used
then, then when?
I know people that, when talking about the possibilities of surviving a post-nuclear world, say things like "I don't want to live in such a world;
I'd just kill myself when the bombs are being dropped -- why wait to suffer?" To me, one can always choose to take their own lives in the aftermath
of an apocalypse, if they are in too much pain, or just don't want to go on anymore. To do so preemtively seems rash to me. Certainly there are
considerations, such as the possibility of enslavement or marauding bands of whatever. Still....... the choice will be ours.
