because people speak English
Giggling, you are right. That's really a dilemma! But you are not right, according to the answers I've receved, many chose mom instead of wife!
You can find another wife not another mom, that's true. What if your kids ask you, "Dad, why don't you save my mother? You don't want another mom, nor do I! "
Thanks so much for your sincere and honest answer! Wish you a fantastic day!
