    10.7%
  4. Imma find me a new husbando/waifu and adopt a child!

    3.6%

    I was reading this novel yesterday, not even gonna share it cuz it was a waste of my time. I should've slept earlier instead fml and they asked you to choose between rescuing two important people of your life so here's a redacted version of that.

    Given that you have established a happy family of 3 for some time now when suddenly the end of the world happened. (Icebergs melting, waters rising, flooding countries, forests burning etc) However, God suddenly appeared in front of you and claimed that you have the power to save the planet but it comes at a price, you would need to sacrifice someone important to you.
    1) Your husbando/waifu
    2) Your 3 year old child

    Assume the following:
    For le husband/waifu:
    1) You spent 20 years of your life with your husbando/waifu and he/she has become a part of you. Losing him/her would be like losing one half of your heart.
    2) Your spouse had contracted a disease that isn't deadly to him. However, conceiving another child would result in the disease being passed down to it and your child would eventually die in stillbirth every time

    For le child
    1) Your child is in the cutest phase of his life. He/She has started to babble and has managed to call you his parent. This creature is the proof of love between your spouse. He/She shares both of your most distinct features and manages to brighten your day without any trouble.
    2) It took you and your spouse a lot of time, pain and effort to conceive this child. 3 years of consultations, 2 years of being on medicine and several IVF procedures with consecutive failures almost killed your hope when finally this ray of sunshine was born. Losing this child would be like losing the other half of your heart.

    I wouldn't save the world. I'm a little selfish in this regard.

    However, if my husband said he wanted to die to save the world, then I might reconsider it. It would be important to me that he chooses it willingly. If there's no consent, then I absolutely wouldn't give him up.

    The child I would absolutely never give up.

    well. . .that is if your spouse didn't have any complications after that happens. . .
    it may be physically or mentally. . .both are hard to deal with. . .
    so this types of questions are sometimes hard to answer. . .


    ps: i'll save my wife.

    I would talk it over with my spouse, but I would assume that they would agree that their sacrifice would be best. My reasoning is that if my spouse doesn't die the child will die anyways and since neither of us would want that. and I'm the only one that can save the world. they would understand and maybe even push me to sacrifice them.

    Very easy choose.

    I sacrifice my spouse and save the child.
    Can't make a new child with him/her so its useless to save my spouse. The child has the future, and she/he should understand, if not she/he deserves to die for being selfish. I wouldn't mind sacrificing myself in that situation at least, it's the most meaningful way you can possibly die, I would see it as a honour to have such a meaningful death.

    No big loss with this choose, or rather, this is very good. As world saviour, I should be even more popular, so becoming single this way is just awesome. I can just look for a new spouse to make some more kids as well. :love::love:

    that there is one of the most morally, ethically and most importantly emotionally hard questions you'll ever face in life, one of the reasons every Doctor program has that scenario at least once in there run (except MASH I think), and honestly until you are in that situation (and I hope you aren't) you will not know what you will chose

    Imagine any average person who wasn't trained for this and their brain short-circuited because they never would've expected to make this kind of decision in their life knowing that what they chose would ultimately follow them for the rest of their life :sweating_profusely:
