Your spouse or your child...

This is a very controversial topic. I had a friend who always complained that women seem to forsake their husbands for their children. My response would be: where the husband was his wife's first priority, the child(ren) become/s THEIR first priority. I could be wrong - hey, I've never been married or had children, so what do I know, right?

But the same friend asked this question:

If you, your spouse and your child were trapped in a burning house
and you got free, but could save only one person,
who would you save?

For me, it's a no-brainer - my child. I think a lot of women would choose their child as well. My friend on the other hand (he's a guy, by the way), said he'd choose his wife. His reasoning is that he and his wife can always have more children afterwards. But I thought, "What wife would forgive you afterwards?"

I asked 2 friends at work, the same question. They're both guys and agreed that it's too hard a choice. But then, they wondered,'What if your spouse says "Save me, save me, leave our child because we can make another one!"?'  *insert loud laughter here - BUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA*

Really though, if I wanted to save my husband and he said I should leave our child, I'd drop him and take my child instead.

Scary situation to think about, but what do you say?

  1. I'd save the first one I touched, child or husband. Just close my eyes and pick one!

    But the one I'd really want to save would be my husband...
