I think the number one factor is WHO IS THE PERSON you are contemplating leaving behind. Is it the wife/husband, one of your children, a friend or a complete stranger?

Emotive question for you all that I'v just been thinking about, imagine SitX has hit or TSHTF and someone close to you either a very close friend or a relative even, is injured/ill/can't cope and is actually slowing you and other members of your group down.
Imagine that this person, however close to you, is actually impeading your chances of survival and in all likelyhood is going to halt you getting help/where you need to be/equipment etc
What would you do? Realistically?
Would you leave them and let them chance it alone? Would you abandon the rest of the group and stick it out with your loved one? Or would you persuade the rest of the group to help you and move on as a team?
I think its a horrible situation to be in, but thousands of people in the world face this dilemma every single day.

I would stick by their side no matter what. If it means I die too so be it. If they are dying, I'd comfort them and make their last stretch on Earth as bearable as possible.
Because what's the point in surviving if you haven't got your loved ones?
