Re: Paris + B'Elanna scene, absolute cop-out

Dying together is only romantic if it happens when you are very old, like in The Notebook. Otherwise it is totally dumb because your kids are deprived of both their parents at once and have no one to move back in with and borrow money from. Of course this might not bother Vulcan kids but I do think it would bother Vulcan society if a brilliant Vulcan scientist's wife gets sehlat rabies and drops dead and he dies too because of the meld when he had a good 200 years left of benefiting his planet.
