Would you be more devastated if your partner died, or your child?
My boyfriend and I were discussing which would be more difficult to recover from. He says it would be harder to lose a child, and I say it would be more difficult to lose a husband/wife. What do you think?
There was another question similar to this awhile back and my answer is the same: My child(ren). They are a part of me that my husband can't ever be, through no fault of his own.
Oops, I was wrong. Now that I look up into the thread I remember that it was UL in his rant in that other question I was thinking about. It was about whether a woman would choose her life over her child's life in labor(?). He said that no woman would pick themselves over their child and I said I would and gave reasons why I would.
How could anyone compare their significant other to their children? Your child comes from your flesh and blood, and as a mother of two - I carried my children inside of me, they grew inside of me. The child would be way more devastating.
