So u mean to say priority and importance depends on the degree of weakness. Whosoever is weaker amongst the two, will get a priority.

Are you sure mother’s love for child is unconditional? Don’t u want her to love you back? If you do, then of course it’s conditional. If your child doesn’t love you back then won’t u seek support in your husband? And won’t that lead to a stronger bond between you two?

Again, doesn’t it depend on the kind of relationship you have shared with your spouse while your baby was growing up?

I believe whether it’s a tough decision or an easy one, depends on the kind of relationship your share with each one of them. Don’t u think so?

Don’t u think whether the child is closest to you or your spouse is relationship specific.

I think I would say my child would be my priority. Of course, situations may be different and often the spouse may merit more attention, but on the whole, it is your child who is closest to you. Until she grows up and has her own life partner of course!

Well…. it depends on a lot of situations i guess…. however, a mother’s love for her child is too unconditional…. If a mother can bear the labour pains, she can bear to stay without a partner….but probably not without her child….

It would be like choosing between your right limb and your left limb. A very tough decision if one has to really choose between the two. Situations can alter your decision and also based on the need of the moment. *p*

I feel the partner is always a priority. Of course when you have a baby or a toddler, the baby needs more attention and needs to be attended on a priority basis. But if the comparison is between a grown up baby and a spouse, I would choose to prioritize my spouse. The child will grow up and fly away – will have his or her own life. It is the partner who will be with you forever.

It depends…on many things. Who is weaker then? Who needs the attention more? What do I need then?
