Alright, to be fair, I don't know. Because in all honesty I've never been in that situation. And often times when push comes to shove and a person actually finds themselves in that situation, what we believe of ourselves to be true often isn't. In such a drastic scenario, many people think themselves capable of much more than they actually are, and they overestimate the capacity of how they would actually deal with/react given the reality of actually being in a circumstance like that in real life.
So, that being said, I'd truly like to *believe* I could still be with my partner, even if his face was horribly disfigured. Given that I'd be in love with them in this hypothetical, I'd again hope that for me the strength of the bond between us overpowers any disability - whether that be physical or psychological.
However, I do say with some experience - not much, but some - in this subject that I really do think that I'd still be with them. My brother was in an accident and burned a couple of years ago. Albeit his face wasn't affected, a third of his body was. He also has scar(s) on one of his legs because of the skin graft they had to do. Anyhow, the first time I saw him in the hospital, he looked horrible no doubt, but he just looked like my brother to me. Now, years later, burns healed up but scarred forever, I think he looks fantastic. Not the same of course, but just... "him" really, if that makes sense. I love him so much, and I see him no differently because of his burns.
So I have a lot of faith in saying that no, I don't think a partner's disfigured face would affect me much. If the genuine love is there, that's what really counts. The way I look at it is: nobody looks perfect to begin with and nobody looks perfect in the end, but the love doesn't change :]0
