Given that your mom and your wife/hubby fall into the water at the same time, and they cant swim. There is no one else there, only you. Who will you save first, your mom or your wife/hubby? Why?

i am good swimmer and have the skill to save two people together

Wow! Congrats!

Thanks for your answer!

Since I don't have a hubby - real or imaginary. The answer is simple. My MOM

What if you have, what is your answer then?

i will choose to save my mom without thinking i will jump like dolphin  and my wife i know she will understand becouse we have only one mom in this life and after i save her she will search me another wife  :)  

Still my MOM, because she is the weaker of the two. She would not last long without help. The husband is the stronger, so hopefully will stay afloat longer until either I can help him later or for another person to come and help. 

That's my LOGICAL answer  :-D :-P

Ok, thanks, dear sis!

hmmm, without any thinking?

miss mickey, according to my fellas they´ve said that they would save theire wife, but on the other hand i would say that my mum is most important i rised with her advises so i would stay with my mum, i´d save my mom 

Listen, it's not only the matter of choosing one of the given options. You have to explain with logic and reasons. First of all i would like to tell you that i always pray to GOD to keep me away from such worst  circumstances/accident in my life. Now i come to the point, i will try to save both of them with same spirit but mother will be my first preference.

Reason: As i am Muslim and Islam is my religion. Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him) said, for men, mother is the relation that has the more right than any other one even father comes after her. but let me explain that wives shouldn't be taken as unimportant or something like that. She has very important and prominent position in a man's life and the major responsibility.

First of all, thanks for sharing your viewpoint!

I can see your sincerity to the tough question.
