hello all!! i went to go see titanic 3d last saturday anmd i loved every minute of it. i love that movie and the 3d part-awesome. but im not here to discuss great movies with you guys-lol. im thinking that most of the people on this board have seen the movie-and the scene where rose jumps off the lifeboat to go be with jack. "you jump, i jump, remember..." well, when i was 17 and i first saw that scene, i said thats what i would do. i would go and jump off the lifeboat to be with the man i loved...in fact, i wouldnt have even got on the lifeboat to begin with. i would be standing right next to my man willing to go down and die with him. then i had children. now while i agree that scene is very romantic and sweet-i would not be standing on deck with my man nor would i have gotten off the lifeboat...i would be in that lifeboat knowing that i have to survive for my kids. i have to. i wouldnt be overjoyed about it-im sure id be weeping but id still be in that lifeboat. i dont love my dh any less but i know that i cant go down with him cuz of my children. theres a book by danielle steel-no greater love-its about the titanic...the mother of 5 children went down with her dh instead of being with her kids. she chose to be with her dh in the end then be with her kids. again, when i read it when i was younger, before i had kids, i thought that was very romantic and what i would do. now i know thats not what i would do...so i came here to ask your guys take-the ones that have kids and the ones that dont have kids-would you be on that lifeboat or would you be standing next to your man willing to go down with him??
