Would You Die For Your Wife?

I asked this question in one of my classes a few weeks ago. I explained to them that I believed you should die for your wife faster than you would die for your mother. Most of them dissagreed. All of them besides me said they would die for thier mothers, but would never die for thier wives.

I just wrong for you to marry someone, but not love them enough to take a bullet for them. I also find it dishonorible to do this for your mother faster than you would your wife. I understand how they feel, they feel that this is the woman who gave birth to you and raised your pig-headed ass for most of your life, they love them extremely deeply for putting up with that. That is your mother however, you have to break from her, and as heartless as it sounds, you must replace her.

So yes, if I got married, I would die for my wife. What would you do?

If you are female, how do you feel on the question? Do you think a man should love you that much?

Re: Would You Die For Your Wife?

First off - what the hell @ situation, but I'll make an attempt to answer.

Um... I don't know, honestly, because what I say now could be hella different should the occasion, erm, happen, I guess.

Awkwardness.

Re: Would You Die For Your Wife?

Okay I used to think the same thing that I would die for someone I love but would you really? How can you possible know what you would do in that sort of situation and imagine the emotional effects that it would have on the person you saved. They may feel that it's their fault their your dead, it would be so confusing for them and how would the rest of your family feel if you choose your wife over your mother. The choice would be too hard for alot of people to make. At least until this hypothetical situation happened.

Re: Would You Die For Your Wife?




My husband and I are very close. I would say that we're much closer to each other than we are to anybody else in our families.


Were you asking this to people who are actually married? If not, then their answers are BS because they can't predict how they'll feel later on. Hypothetical question/answer tends to be wishy-washy anyway.

Re: Would You Die For Your Wife?

I don't think I'll have a wife, so since I won't, I wouldn't die for someone who wasn't there.

I'm not even 15 yet, and I hardly know a thing about love, but I hope when I get married I'd like them enough to be willing to die for my husband. Though I also hope there won't come a time when I need to. >>

Re: Would You Die For Your Wife?

I wouldnt take a bullet for anyone, so I guess I avoid the mother/wife debate. Plus, im not going to have a wife.

But if I was in the situation where I would have to choose one to save over the other, I would probably choose to save the wife over the mother. (mostly because the wife would probably have more years left in their life).

I could say yes but I don't know if I would do it.

Re: Would You Die For Your Wife?

Well for my mother.. maybe. Me and my mum are very close and even though I say I'd take a bullet for her if the situation actually came, I'm not sure how I'd react. For my spouse (when/if I get one): No. I believe it's possible to love someone so much that if they were facing death you'd take their place and die instead, but that just doesn't apply to me. If you said you'd take a bullet for them and they in turn said, oh I'd take a bullet for you too, however much you love each other if the situation came would they really stick to their word? I don't know is the answer. What I do know is that if I was about to die my mother would take my place. I don't even need to ask her, I just know. Its a mum thing

Well yes. I expect most mothers to die for thier children, even if it was from day old, to it's adulthood.The father is something different, though, I don't think I would die for my son if he were over 15. If I had a daughter though, I don't know. There is something about father/daughter relationships.

Re: Would You Die For Your Wife?

I can't believe no one has said they'd die for both. Either way, the mother aspect has to be axed in my case, as I don't have a mom to die for. She died back in '04.

But yeah, I would die for my wife.

All quoted is true. The bold made me smile. I also believe there is a different bond between father/son than there is between father/daughter. Or it could just be because men/boys are portrayed as strong and as a father you'd expect them to be 'tough enough' whereas father's always have that feeling that makes them feel obligated to protect and stand-by their daughters. I don't know if any of that applies to you though.

Re: Would You Die For Your Wife?

You can die for both...or one or the other.

If my mother was in danger, I'd risk my life to save her.

If my eternal companion was in danger, I'd risk my life to save her.

If both were endangered, I'd try and save both.

I would say the same for me, except that my mum died at the start of this year.

I completely agree with this. In fact, I would prefer to have a daughter than a son.

Your... a guy?


Whatever I would say wife more than mother but honestly, I'm too selfish to risk my life for someone else. Unless that someone gave me my paycheck.

Re: Would You Die For Your Wife?

Um... I love my mom, and if I had a wife, I would (hopefully) love her too. What kind of situation would actually ask you to choose which person to take the bullet for? Are they both about to be shot at the same time?

That's a bit offensive, and I don't find it funny. >__>

I'd certainly be happy if my husband (who is nonexistant) would die for me. But I can understand if he'd rather die for his mother, sort of... o_O

Um, anyways... True love can be a powerful thing. I think many husbands would save someone they truly love. You guys just don't know it yet, because most of you are not madly in love. :]

I found that comment very offensive and inapropriate.

But that's what made it so humorus.

Attention: all members under the name Mohammed Titanium are asked to leave the internet immediately and go bang their heads against the nearest brick wall for a couple of hours.

We hope that, through rigorous head-bangs, logic will somehow be knocked into their skulls.


It's kinda of a hard question to answer, whether or not to decide who takes the bullet. Humans are superficial like that; it's not a matter of whether or not they're your wife. It could be your friend, or your brother, or your aunt. The verdict would somehow depend on whether or not YOU are willing to die for someone else, or if they are willing to die for you.

Re: Would You Die For Your Wife?

I'm currently in my first real serious crush. I've had plenty of little crushes on girls in the past, in which I thought my feelings could grow no stronger.

Feeling what I feel now, I know that once you truly know someone, truly feel them, you can feel thousands of times stronger than you ever thought you could.

As I currently feel, a world without her is Hell. A life without her kind words gently whispered nearby is a waste. I don't even feel that away about my mother. If she were to ever die, while I stayed behind, it would truly be the epitome of pain.
