Your house is on fire. Who would you rescue your wife or your mama?
The reason why I ask this is because christanity teaches that your wife should be held in a higher regard than your own mother. They use Genesis 2:24 as their justification. "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." (That is also ironic since a lot of Christians disregard the OT but that is for another discussion) That is one of the things that I have a problem with. My moma gave birth to me and has been around for all 37 years of my life and prayerfully for many more. I only have one moma. Yes I love my wife but I can always get remarried. I cannot have another moma. I was just wonder what is the P&R board's view on this.

I also believe I could carry both, 95 lbs and 110 lbs. I find your comment I can always get remarried disturbing when you are adding your religious beliefs into the mix. By the way, if she survives you're toast.

My mom doesn't live with me so my wife would be the better bet.
Ultimately though, daughter.Hidden Content

I'd say that I'd lean towards wife if I were married. There'd be way more important factors than being able to remarry. If you have children it would be more important that you save their mother than their grandmother in a typical family. One may also be way closer to their wife in their day to day life as well, not to mention the wife should play a much larger role in a man's life. Sure my mother is greatly important in my life, but I'd say that a wife would be a much bigger part of a man's life.
Plus, I'd bet that one's mom would rather her son save his wife than her in most circumstances, especially if you have children together.

neither--my wife is going to get out on her own because I will be saving my card collection.
