Hi, friends... my question is: If your wife/GF and your mom fell into river at the same time (in case neither of them can swim) and there was no other people can help, who will get your rescue first (in case you are a good swimmer), your wife/GF or your mom?

I am a woman so I"d change it to mom and husband. It's always a tough choice but I guess I might guess husband? There was a real life scenario recently where a man couldn't save his son who was trapped in a car, so he chose to go after his wife, who was struggling nearby in the water. In that case I suppose he did the right thing. he didn't really choose between his wife or son, he made the practical decision to save who could be saved.

Yes, for ladies, the question should be "... mother and husband/BF..." So your answer is: husband. Thanks for participation:) sorry I didn't pointed out that the situation was: the two people have equal opportunity to get saved. :P

Well, first of all, I do not know swimming, so cant rescue both. So include another condition that "you know how to swim". Now back to the question, I will save my mom first, because she is old, will not sustain in cold water for more time. The other reason is you can get only one mom, and she is the only one. So better save her. The next thing is try to save your girl friend.

I think I would do the same, save my mom first. (shake hands:) Because mom is more "unique", and she raised up me with her best possible care and love. I am not a good swimmer either, but if I have some power I would save her first.

I'd try to save both at the same time.. and probably end up drowning:P Seriously, I'd choose my mother. (She actually can't swim well; I'm often worried when sea's not calm and she's swimming..)

Yes, most people would try to save both if they could, but that's not very practical. Thank you for response, we have similar choice :) Merry Christmas!

hehe, do you mean you can't choose, so you would just stand there and see them disappear in the river? I think it is a very traditional question in China, just to give a difficult questions to young people. It is difficult to choose, maybe there is no right or wrong answer. Different answer can have different explanations. :)

I would choose to rescue my mom first because we only have one mom.A Gf and a wife maybe available anytime at its right moment and place, but never for a mom. I also have to consider the age, for sure my mom is older than my wife or gf. There is a chance that younger ones will survive a simple drowning.
