Post Reply The Couple or the Family
Posted 8/23/12
Your driving down the road in your car, next to you is the love of your life, he/she is your everything and your planning to marry this person and spend the rest of your life with them. on the opposite side you see a family in a mini can. Mother and father are in the front and two young children in the back. As your goin down the road u realize something is wrong, the brake were failing as you are gearing toward a right curve. The car you are in is sturdy in a front on collision but weak on it sides while the mini van is less sturdy but would not cave in if it impacted the side, however a head on colision would destroy the front of the mini van. Your left with the choice to either save your love and orphan the children or swerve to the right and spare them, but losing the most important love of your life what do you do?

Err, this one is hard, but I think I would swerve towards the mini-van, because I wouldn't want my love to die, and then I would adopt the children out of guilt

I think I would let my love die. I've dealt with pain before, and I'd rather spare others from pain as I have been my whole life.
By the way, you just reminded me of another rule that I was going to put but I forgot.

I would choose the selfless act and save my love and orphan the kids off. You have one turn to live, take it in all its glory and continue to be happy with whom you love.

Um, this is hard. I would most likely save my love but live in guilt from orphaning the kids off.

So it would be easier to forget your love..presuming that you had been with them for awhile now...to die instead of an uknown family whom you might not feel as much emotion towards compared to the one you loved?
This is how I see it but I'd like your take on this response

This seems like a lose/lose situation to me. I'd have to kill the defenseless parent to save my love, or I lose my love. If I chose to save my love then there would be consequences from that choice. It would be obvious that I didn't avoid the collision. I'd probably be arrested, and things could go downhill from there. Would she continue to love me knowing the choice I made? Would I resent her for that choice?

Though I hate the choice, I'd have to let my love die. You could say it serves the greater good, though it would suck for me. The parents live, the children keep their parents, and my love wouldn't have to live knowing that she was the reason I killed the parents.

I'd save my love with no regrets. If it were different and I was the one at risk I would take the hit. If there were more time, maybe she could talk me out of it. But with something sudden like this, the lives of my loved ones are always going to take priority.

I thought about this long and hard. But I would let my love die. On my other account, I said I would orphan the kids off, but after thinking about it, I would let my love die to save the family.
