This has always bothered me. It happened in the movie cast away and pearl harbor. If your spouse dissappeared and was assumed dead, what would you do if they came back? Does it depend on how long they were gone? or if you have children with either spouse?
Would you go back to your first wife/husband or stay with your current one (who your only with because you thought your first love was dead)

This is a good question. I think the amount of time that's passed would be the deciding factor. Once enough time has elapsed you'd come to accept they're dead and have gotten closure and moved on. If they came back in this time frame you're basically strangers and I don't think you could go back.2
