To me the answer is pretty simple...
1. It doesnt matter family or friend...the one whom is right is whom I will side with.
yes blood is thicker then water but also blood can be wrong so you cant base your judgement solely on emotional recognition.
2. The reason I say this is because yes perhaps friends may come & go, but some may be there when your own flesh & blood may do everything in their power to crucify you. Basing your answer strictly because you can cope with them or because you have mutual understandings & get along doesnt mean that you have to agree with them on every matter of every situation...
What makes us human is the fact that we all have an opinion, and it is also ok to agree to disagree if we dont see eye to eye on certain issues.
So the next time you have an argument & you see 2 people arguing but dont agree with either one of them agree to be neutral...that is ok too...just dont pick a side!
First, I'd need to calm things down. I should be the one to try calm things down and take everything back to "civilized and reasonable". If they argue about personal differences, then I don't pick a side. Unless one is being unfair in which case I defend the weaker one. Like... if an adult is yelling at a child for no reason.
If they argue about an opinion - like in a political discussion - rather than personal feelings, then I have my own opinion and go with the person who is right in my views. Or bring in my own point if i feel neither is right.
i would say family because i trust them over anyone regardless to weather they were right or wrong in the situation would be my judgement. say a friend and a family member got in a fight and my family member was wrong i would stay out of it and not have anyones side. but as far as that goes i can't imagine a friend having the right to fight with one my family member or having a reason.
Family. Even best friends can leave you but family is family, the blood bond will always be there. We may say friends, because they're easier to relate to and you've gone the same struggles but family is a deeper relationship, they may annoy you alot and even hurt you but in the end, it stands above all.
Of course my highest priority is my family.
In any unambiguous case I'd defend whoever was right. If my friend was right and my family member was wrong I'd have to stand by my friend. Blood is thicker than water but doing the right thing is more important than loyally.
Family. My friends, yes they are close to me, but they can leave and betray me at any time. My bonds to my family, however, are much greater. They will always be there, and even if they wrong me, they are still my family who loved me for so many years, raised me etc.
well i personally think, family should come before friends but it really does depend on how im defending them in what case it is. i suppose it really does depend on what they did wrong and why i would be sticking up for them but my family come before anyone.
I don't believe that someone must be right because they are related to me. And I don't believe that someone must be right, because I like them and they are my friends. So I try to find out what's the matter and who is right.
family. Why? Well first of all I have a great family second my family is Italian and there are consiquenced if you turn your back on the family especially if its for someone outside the family. Blood is what counts.
Defend against what?
Zombie apocalypse? Each other?
Those who need help go first. The kids can't defend themselves against a lot of things. So they need an adult to protect them.
if it was my immediate family, mum dad sister vs my pal defend the family any other family member and i would be on my pals side
i will say family. cause u know,family wont ever betray you, but your frnds can. i have personal experience. so family first.
like say a friend of urs is arguein with a family memeber who do u defend? I feel thrs only one right answer for the question
Any part of the family, we will make a theory here, say friend and family memeber r arguein who do u defend
My famliy. Friends come and go but your family is always there, rather you like it or not.
I wouldn't pick a side in that scenario. I'd try mediating and make them both calm down.
family because they will always be there for you when a friend might not be be there.
depends on which branch of my family, are we talkign immediate or aunts uncles etc?
Depends on the situation really. I would defend who I believed needs it more.
Neither. I tend to stay out of things and just watch.
