I have a form that has a email address that must be filled out but they can choose to opt out so the email address is not saved to the database but just replaced with the text "opted out". I have no problem with changing the value but is there a way to keep the email address in the input so the user never sees the texted changed to opted out. I know I can do this with a hidden input field but that is not possible here. Blow is what I have.

if ($('#opt_out').is(':checked')) {
    $('input[name=email]').val('Opted Out');
