What Do You Think of This Advice?

Denise
An interesting article appeared today on the website of the Daily Press newspaper. Here's the gist of the article ("Pat Robertson Says It's Okay to Divorce Someone with Alzheimer's Disease"):
(Pat Robertson) was asked what advice a man should give to a friend who began seeing another woman after his wife started suffering from the incurable neurological disorder. The question was posed with 10 minutes left in the broadcast.

"I know it sounds cruel, but if he's going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over again, but make sure she has custodial care and somebody looking after her," Robertson said.

So, what do you think of Robertson's advice? And, if you were asked the same question (What advice would you give to a friend dating another woman while his wife has Alzheimer's?), what would you suggest?
