There's a interesting question for girl who is falling in love to ask her boyfriend. Only as joke Girl will asked as follows: If your mother and me fall into river at the same time, which one you will save first ? If choose only one of your mom and me, which one you will save ? General speaking, It's a difficult for boy to reply it. If you were her boyfriend, what will you reply self-willed girlfriend ?

This one is fun. I will answer (in humor) using the Bible as a reference. The Bible says that a man should leave his father and mother and cling to his wife. Now if he just has a girlfriend, I think maybe he still clings more to his mother and not the girlfriend so maybe he falls in with his mother and saves her first. If on the other hand, he is married and clinging to his wife, he will probably fall in the water holding on to his wife. If the mother has been kind to the wife, maybe the husband and wife will rescue the mother together. I think all bets are off if the mother has not been so kind! One thing mother's of sons forget is that it is usually the wife who pokes at the husband to call his mother, get his mother a gift, or visit his mother. When the mother makes war with the wife, she does not feel so much that she should remind her husband of his mother.

I think that is a question that no guy has to be asked. It is not easy to answer that.

lol. I think it's funny, but also kinda wrong. As a woman, I don't think I'd EVER make a man choose between me or their mother (even though it's a hypothetical situation). I'm a Daddy's girl, so that'd be like a guy asking me to choose him or my father. I'm sure anyone, male or female, would choose their parents. Family is everything, blood is everything...at last in my family it is. I'd dump a guy quick if I had to choose between him or family!

Yean, you are right. So I confirm it's only a joke Because,my young girl colleagues will faddle with their BF about the topic sometimes. of course,they know it's not real. Only want to know how she is important for her BF.

I really would hope that my girlfriend didn't ask because this is just a hypothetical question which doesn't truly reflect the reality. If she insisted, I can only say I can decide only when the situation do occur. It may also depends on my mood. Maybe I will save my mother first and then die with her. Or I will save her first but leave her forever.

If I were a boy I will save my mother. I still believe that a mother can never be replaced but a girlfriend, you can always have another. Maybe that is not right for others but what can I do? I can only save one. If I can save them both of course I will, everybody will. Blood is still thicker than water.

The correct answer if you want to keep your girlfriend is that he would save her. The correct answer in the actual situation may be different. The real answer is that you would first determine if you can swim. Secondly, if you were able to swim plus only one person, you have to decide which person you have the best chance of saving and which one has the best chance at survival. This may or may not be the girlfriend, this may or may not be the mother. You could always look the other way and pretend you didn't notice. This way you wouldn't have to get your clothes wet. If your girlfriend pushed your mother into the water, save only your mother. If neither can swim, perhaps you should find yourself another girlfriend with more outdoor skills. Probably best not to take your girlfriend and your mother out together ever. Then you don't have to worry about it.

I doubt it is hard to answer...Do you know what will I do? I will save both of them by thinking of another way on how to save them both...it might depends on situation but i am surely that there is a way for that... that's what I answer to my friends, when they ask me that... but all of them answered that if they love the girl very much and is surely willing to spend the rest with his life with the girl, then he will save the girl first before his mother..because ...if he save the mother before the girl, surely, if he can't find the love he wants from the girl, then he will regret the rest of his life.hehe.

I want to be true to myself so I will save the girlfriend first before the mom because I think that moms are much heavier than their daugther so I can still have enough strength in save the mom.

I do not think this is the issue of his girlfriend and mother,I think this is the issue of life.I love both of them,So I will save the one from my recent,Because that would save the high probability,But this is only sensible answer.

I know my bf would choose me over his mom. That sounds a bit mean, but he really probably would.

hahahaha! I often hear that question. If i'm the boyfriend, my answer would be my mom. Why? Because my mom would never ask me that question and I know that my mom would give her life for me. What is my assurance that my girlfriend would give her life for me? If she gets mad then it's up to her.

Well, you can't compete with family. They're family, same blood, etc. It's stupid to ask those kind of question, what if they are asked the very same question. But, I also know that there are some people who would pick their girlfriend over their family. Sad but true. Love in the works?

If i ever asked my boyfriend this I'd hope that he would say he would save which ever one of us was in the most danger. I wouldnt have an issue if he said his mom first because honestly i know im capbable of swimming and I dont know if she can or not...and I love him I wouldnt make him chose me over her or vice versa.
