    Risk your life to save a friend?
    No, only to a certain extent, but I'd never put my own life on line for someone who I am not even sure will do the same for me.

    I am, I spend alot of the time with them but not as close as I would be with a significant other. Nothing is like that bond I'd imagine. There are things you'd tell a significant other that you wouldn't tell a sibling but I fail to see that vice versa.

    Even with siblings there's distance, you don't spend the rest of your life with siblings do you - you all separate and go and build lives with someone else. Your significant other is literally the most intimate shareholder in your whole life. Imo you should have the trust of a sibling with them plus more.

    You share with them what you share with none else tbh. Idk about you, depends what a husband means to you lol. Boyf is a different thing.
    What about your husband vs your kids?

    Probably not because the people I call friends I don't have a huge emotional attachment too.

    Family, I probably would

    You definitely do! Don't talk like that you are a worthwhile human being, I'm sorry you're feeling like this by if it's upsetting you, please speak to someone
    My friend who I would die for know about it. I have spoken to them. They made me feel better.

    logically I would think husband since you can just pop out another kid, and currently I find kids very annoying.

    However, thinking about it in terms of the future I'd assume I'd have a fair emotional attachment to my offspring that is unlike the one for my husband since I have literally created them inside me...and I'd feel a certain responsibility and protective care over them. I'd assume my husband could just save himself.

    This is a really hard question. Like really hard.

    If the kids were under a certain age, I'd say kids.

    In order (of hypothetical)
    Wife
    Friends
    Family

    Reason? I am closer to friends than family, and would be closer to a lover than both (I presume, have been in past).

    Im saving my kids over husband also. kids love is unconditional and doesn't die whereas with your husband the passion dies out eventually and loves shifts from inlove to having love for you.
