Thread: Who is more important?

  1. #1

    Default Who is more important?

    Just sonething that caught my attention from another thread today.

    Here is my question.

    Who is more important, your brother or sister vs. a long term bf or gf?

    How about, who is more important, your parents vs. your husband or wife?

    Food for thought.

    Let's go, what are your thoughts?

    There are generally two diverse views ....
    One old school of thought (in China) is that the Planet/Universe/Emperor (the world which consists of all the people generally) is the most important, then the Country (becoz without the country there will be no homes( Family), then the Family (Parents), follow by the siblings, children then wife (since she is considered an "outsider").
    But for women, the Family (Parents-in-law), Husband, children then siblings.... last time bf or gf non-existence ....
    I dont know about others, but i would place my parents/parents in law on top, follow by wife, then children, then bros and sisters .... and gf?... i will treat her like outsiders but of course a bit better ... ...
    always the Light, .... always.

    Si fu, these are my 2 cents.

    Different people at different roles. Thus, importance is subjective.

    Brothers and sisters are your blood, you grow up, fight, play, laugh and cry with them. You love them because they are your siblings.

    Parents are the ones who gave birth to you. They set examples that probably made the person you are today. You honor and respect them. You love them because they are your parents.

    Husband and wife are ONE. You fight, play, laugh, cry, make most decisions, respect, honor, slog, create new life, walk down old age with him/ her. You love him/ her because your heart is captured and melted by this ONE person whom started the 2nd half of life with you.

    Its like asking, "If your wife and your mother fall into a river, and you have one chance. Who would you save?"

    My answer? I'll let both of them drown and commit harakiri.

    At different stages of your life, they will have their importance to you.
    Cleanse your thoughts, not by the foods you eat.

    Never more than agree with you dude. Everyone, I mean everyone is working just to bring something back home at the end of the day. You think the gov will feed you guys if you don't work at all. Unless you are so damn rich that you don't have to work at all. hahaha $$ issues again....

    Ok, lets look at it full on.

    If you and your wife/husband/Girlfriend/boyfriend/brother/sister or mother or what ever etc. were the only 2 people and you standing in front of a person with a gun.

    The person says to you, "ok, one will die one will live, so which one do you choose ?"

    I know my answer

    What would be your answer and WHY ?

    when u have a wife it will be a different story... (assuming you are not married)
    if you are, try letting your wife know your decision.

    I think parents vs spouse is a married man's worst nightmare. One is the person who gave you life, the other is the person who will live rest of life with you.

    Personally, if i am involved in such a situation i would try to mediate.
    if they force me to choose, i would ask them to choose between me or living together peacefully.

    remember to tell your wife to be this is you will.

    also, remember not to be angry with your brother in law and son in law when they choose to let your sister and daughter drown.

    I also know exactly what I will do. I also know exactly why I will do what I am going to do. The decision is not an easy one, but it's the only decision that I personally feel, is the rational one, the right one, the one that guides me through life.

    What is your decision?
