My husband and only my husband. We don’t have kids yet but I assume one day they’d be added to the list.

ashleyroo :  Risking your life and actually giving up your life are two different things.  Risking means there is a chance that you will remain alive.  Giving up your life means definitively sacrificing yourself for someone else.  I would like to think that I would risk my life for pretty much anyone in an emergency situation.  I couldn’t just stand by and do nothing while watching someone die.  As far as actively giving up my life for sure–my husband and parents.

I would give up my life for my fiance, parents, brother, and my very best friend who is pretty much a sister to me and that’s it.

I would throw myself in front of a train to save my daughter in an instant. I love my husband but I feel like your love for your child is a different kind of love. 

My mother has pretty much zero interest in her kids, but her mental illness(es?) make her incapable of loving anyone

I was actually talking about this the other day with some friends and my answer was depending on the situation probably anyone but I have a terminal disease so am going to die anyway so why not as a hero lol.

But a lot of people will just do it instictively. I have run out and grabbed a strangers child in the road before they were hit and I have saved people from rips in the ocean which again is really risky because someone drowning and panicking can sink you as well.

I alway think about the passengers on the crashed flight on 9/11 who sacrificed for others. You never know how strong you can be until you face something like that.

ashleyroo :  If I saw someone that needed my help and it involved risking my life I most certainly would do everything to try and help. I could never live with myself if I didn’t. I would hope someone would do the same thing for me or for my loved one’s. Taking a risk does not mean it’s the end of your life.

I would die for my chld without question. If my child was young I would die for Darling Husband, he would be a better solo parent due to my health. If we were old I wouldn’t because niether of us can remotely stand the idea of living without the other and if I could take that pain for him I would. But if he wanted to live, I would sacrifice myself in a second.

I’d die for my children, without a doubt.

I agree that it is awfully hard to say in an emergency situation what you might do. A lot of people have risked their lives for strangers. I would take great risk to save Dh, but I would unhesitatingly sacrifice myself for my children if it came down to it. 

A lot of people make the dichotomy of saving your Dh vs your child, and there’s no contest for me. I’d save my kids over my Dh in a heartbeat, and he had damn well better do the same because if he didn’t I’d sure make him wish he did. 

As for parents, my dad has passed and my mum is 80. She would feel exactly the same way I do, so if I sacrificed myself to save her, she would never, ever forgive me, and she’s seriously side-eye me taking any risks for her at this point. And my sibling? Nah, I’m not sure I’d even risk much for her. I see her once a year out of obligation and have no communication otherwise. Not worth it.

Sansa85 :  I feel that.  My mother is mentally ill and I think she’d enjoy me dying.  It would mean she could get some attention as a grieving mother.

I would sacrifice my life for my little sister, and my little nephews and nieces.  I wouldn’t sacrifice my life for my husband.

rosadiaz :  How come you would sacrifice your life for your sister but not your husband? The niece and nephew i can understand because they are kids but but to me my husband is my primary family.

id die for my children in a heartbeat… im not sure who else, I sometimes have wierd nightmares where my brother is a baby and I have to save him but it doesnt even make sense because hes in his twenties and could save himself.

risking life depends on the risk, if I felt the risk was safe enough id do it for anyone. I respect people like those who ran into the world trade center (especially after the first one fell) because thats a level of selflessness past what I could do.

I have tried to break up drunken brawl between two strangers where one was beating the other so badly I thoughtv he would die (he was bleeding from his eyes) and have a nice stab wound scar through my hand to show for my effort but I was younger and didnt have kids, if I was their now with my children I wouldnt risk it.
