A study/article on this topic!
Most mothers will pick to save their child...and most men will pick to save their wives.
I read a very interesting article on this very topic. They explained it as nature's way of keeping the family *together*. The husband protects the wife, which basically means the whole family, because the mother protects the children, kwim?
Ugh, maybe if I dig I can find the article again....ANYWAYS...I would protect my children
