Your spouse or Your Child - which one will you save?

Bina Bakshi asks a hypothetical question, if you were asked to choose to save either your spouse or your only child, who would it be?


If I had to make a choice in a real life situation, I assume my instincts will take over.


However, if you were to ask me to answer this question hypothetically, I am at a loss, the very thought of choosing one of the two makes me uncomfortable.


Why is it so?


Is it because I don't want to loose one of them or is it because I don't want to be in a position to decide whom to save?
