Who will you save first if your mother and wife fall into a river? And why?

Hi! Before I got married, some people asked me"If your mother and wife fall into a river at the same time, who will you save first?" It' hard to say. If you can only save one, you must make a desion at once. My mother is not easy to bring me up, maybe I'll save her first. While my wife is my best love, I can't lose her. Some people think they only have a mother, they should save her first. Because they think they can change another wife if they lose her. But I don't think so. Though I have a mother and I love her, I'll live a longer life with my wife in the future. What's your opinion?

Hello there. I am a girl and I would never ask my partner this question. This is because if i am the guy, I would choose to save my mother. This is because all of us only has 1 Mother and our mothers have made many sacrifices for us. Anyway, my advice for guys is find a girl who can swim. LOL If she were to ask you such a silly question, you can answer 'Since you can swim, I'll save my mother' =D

Hi! I admire your wittiness. I agree with you. Your parter won't ask this kind of question, let alone you mother. So your advice is good. Just find a swimmer as your partner. But if your parter's friend ask the question, how will you answer it or just no answer?

This might be the most difficult question in the world. I don't know who can give a satisfactory answer. I also wanna know who proposed this embarrassing question for the first time. Let's think about who will ask you this question? Mother or Wife(or Husband). In my opinion, this question should not be asked by anyone, whatever mother or wife, because anyone who ask you this question might be a cold person. I mean, as we all know, whatever mother or wife, even other members of our familly, are all the most important persons to us. We don't wanna lose anyone, and even we wanna sacrifice ourselves if that can save their lives. Our familly members would never ask us this hard question if they really love us. Okay, since this is really a question, let's imagine what would happen if someone ask you that. For me, if my mother ask me, I am sure to tell her I will save her. If my wife ask me that question, I will begin to doubt whether she really loves me, and the worst consequence is the decrease of my love to her, even divorce. So, if your mother or wife really loves you, they will never ask you that question. I am sure it's not gonna happen! have a great day!

Hi! You are right. This question was asked by a wife' friend. Maybe she is not serious but a joke. She just wants to know if I love my wife and how much I love her. She certainly knows that everyone likes their parents most. Right, parents or wife won't ask this kind of embarrassing question just because they love me. That won't test it. Wish you happiness!
