Would you choose your kids over your dh/so, or vice versa?

My hubby and I were talking the other night and I told him that, if it ever came to it, I would choose my kids over him. He got kiinda mad about it, acting like that was the wrong choice. I guess I just can't see how he would choose me over our kids.

So, to make this a question, if you were given NO OTHER OPTION and you had to choose between your kid(s) and dh/so, which would you choose?

  • Why on earth did you see the need to say such a thing when it will probably NEVER happen??? Why did you feel the need to deliberately hurt him? Why would you borrow trouble?

  • Kids, always. Especially now that I'm their only living parent. A future stepdad ain't got nothin on my kids.

  • It would depend on the scenario- life and death? Then yes, I would pick the kids and sacrifice my own life for theirs.
    In regards to picking the kids over him when it comes to date night? Hell, no!

    Someone had touched on that ^^ topic recently. The member would rather stay home with a kid that didn't want her to go than go out with her partner therefore teaching the kids that while they are important, parents need alone time to build a strong relationship in which to raise the children to be emotionally healthy and stable partners themselves.

    ^^ And that is the Greatest run on sentence ever!

  • My DH & I discussed this not too long ago. If he had to make a choice to save the kids or I, I would expect him to save them first. I would save the kids first too.

  • My kids are adults, so I choose my DH. But really it would depend on how old they are and what the reason I had to choose.
