    I’d save my child, and I’d expect Mr. Lauren to do the same. I feel it’s a parent’s most important job to protect his/her child

    My child without a doubt. And I would want my husband to save my children too. I would never forgive him if he saved me over my children.

    I don’t have children, but I don’t expect to want to live if they happen to die before me.  I would save my child, and would hope my husband would do the same.

    I would save my child and would also hope my DH does the same. When I became a mother I promised always to protect them.

    @MrsPanda99:  well I may not be able to have another baby (assuming I can even have one) so that’s not true for me. I’d also be dealing with an angry Mr. Lauren who would probably divorce me for letting our child die, so I wouldn’t get to keep him either.

    Wow, this is a tricky question. I’m not totally sure what instinct would kick in (probably the instinct to save the kid?) but I am of the opinion that your spouse should be #1 in your life (well, after God, if you believe in him.)  For example, I think relationally couples start to have lots of problems when they start putting the needs of the kids before their relationship/spouse, and I dont think that’s how it’s supposed to work. So, with that belief, I am extending that scenario to vote that perhaps I should save my spouse first. Don’t flame me! That’s certainly not a decision I would make lightly!

    Oh shiz! here’s the spin off!… I was wondering when someone would post this. I can’t say for sure this will be my answer after I have a child. As of right now, with no children yet, I think I would have to save my child. I think my FI would do the same thing; and I would hope he would do the same thing.

    @MrsPanda99:  I think I would choose my hypothetical child, but I am just a tad torn because of the reason you mentioned. In the end I think I sway towards child because they would have a longer life to live. Tough question.

    It’s hard for me to even think about this..but my child would be the one I’d save.
