Would you break the law to save a loved one?

I don't think I would unless it's a life and death situation. I know a lot of people will in fact break the law just to save their loved one. Parents most specially will save their children. I think it's parents instinct to do that but I don't think breaking the law would really help.

No, I won't do it if it means breaking the law. Putting your love ones in the right track is more accepted than tolerating him to continue doing wrong things. If you love someone, lead him to the right path where he can eventually change his wrong doings.

Hi santos mari chris: That's a hard one but first of all I would think what law? If it's not a big crime and she really needs this kind of help I will do it. Second, Am I doing the right thing? This may be sound strange but laws are human. I prefer to safe someone's life even if in that process I break a law and there was not possible to do something different. And third: is that what she really needs? Because maybe she ask me to do something wrong I am not really helping her if I do what she wants. ALVARO

I don't think I would break the law. I have bad luck and would get caught and have to pay the price. I can think of no situation that would be worth that.

I think it could be an excuse and it is also something I will do. I wont care if I have to break the law(as long as its not about killing someone) I would break the law to save a loved one.

Is that like saying saying white lies to cover for something? I would say, black is black and white is white. But what do you really mean break the law? For me, breaking the law is bad. So I don't think I can break the law just to cover for someone close to me. I would say, noone is guilty unless proven by law though. Do you think I am right?

I love each and every one of my family members dearly. We may not always get along all of the time but that doesn't mean that the love and care isn't there. i would do almost anything for the one that I loved. I would have to draw the line at breaking the law. The risk may not be worth the sacrifice.

what kind of law would you break when you saved your loved once? what ever reason it is when you just do it to saved someone you love it will be an act of self defense, and i will surely save my loved once for whatever law i should break

If we were talking about something that would save my children or my husband, there is no question in my mind that I would break the law to save any of the three of them. However, for other people that I care about, I think that there would be a lot more of a thought process involved before I would break the law to save them because the love that I have for the other people in my life does not run nearly as deep as that I have for my immediate family.
