Hypothetically, assume that all are in mortal danger, and you can only save one; the other(s) will necessarily perish. Whom do you rescue?

(If you don't have a spouse, or don't have a sibling, please abstain from voting.)

    Hand down sibling. Unconditional love. Been with me my whole life. (Know me possibly better than I do) never cheated on me. Always have my back.

    I love my partner - I do. But if it came down to this, I just couldn’t/wouldn’t pick them. Besides, you can’t find another sibling. You can and will always find another partner

    What’s the point? Why would you save your sibling?

      Not my personal reasons, but possible guesses:
      1. Been with them longer, spent more time together
      2. Can find another spouse, but probably not another sibling
      3. Filial piety
      4. Cheated on by spouse

      It's not a logical decision for me, it's an emotional one but logically #2 hits home. Can't replace my brother. Emotionally I'm a decade older and he is my brother but also in some ways raised I raised him because my parents got divorced when he was young and then worked all the time and we're emotionally a mess other times.

    In a hypothetical situation I'd prefer my hypothetical solution to save both and never have hypothetical regrets. If only two of three of us can survive, then they two live, just for the sake of me being selfish and never having to deal with moral regrets.

      I agree 100%. A life full of regret is more unlivable than death.
