Who would you save? Your wife/husband or your child?

If the boat is sinking and you could only save one person, who will that be? Is it your child or your partner? As a mother, I would always save my child first. Like when I was about to gave birth, I instructed my hubby to have my child be saved if they are to choose. For me a child has to live or at least experience life, we, the parents, have lived our lives for years already and perhaps enjoyed and got tired with it at times. Our child will need us but I m sure, there are other people out here would love my child the way I do or maybe even more. Pls share your thoughts...thanks!

Oh well, that how mothers really think...or should I say, that is expected from us though some people I know would consider otherwise which I don't really understand because a child is ours forever but our partners are not. Thanks for posting!

I totally agree with you. i would save my child and next my spouse. Because we have been here so many years and it is enough. Our kid needs to live . But I never knew that i had so much of motherly love within me until i had my kid. Where did it all come from?

i would save my child if i could just save one. i love both my sons so much there i wouldn't think twice on who i'd save. there is nothing like a mother's love. how someone people mistreat their children is beyond my understanding.

hi chrysz! just like you, if i were to choose who to save, i would choose to save my child. and i share the same reasons with you. the husband has already lived a life, experience living here on Earth and the child has not even experienced half of what the husband had experienced. and besides, we can change husbands but we can never change children! a mother carried her children in her womb for 9 months. risk her life in giving birth. those are heavy reasons to give chance for the baby to live.

it is a very hard situation if you will choose among the most important in your life but if no other solution except to choose the right one will i must select my wife because we build a relationship already i know all of her, i can make another child with her. if my wife gone i would missed her much unlike the child gone because the child is only new in my life. my wife is very important to me.
