The Robbers’ Visit

Robbers enter a house, asks for all the money and valuables. After they collect what they can, they give the man of the house a gun with instructions to shoot his wife or else he be shot himself. The man gets the gun, points it at his wife and hesitates…


He is thinking of what he has gone through in life with his wife and how she has suffered and sacrificed for him…He hands back the gun and says, “I am sorry I can’t do this…”The boss of the robbers silently grabs the gun from him and passes it on to the wife with the same instruction. The wife gets the gun and without any single hesitation points to her husband’s head and pulls the trigger…But alas, the gun had no bullets in it…The robbers get their gun and walk out of the house laughing.

1. If you were the man in that house how would you react towards your wife?
2. If you were the wife, what explanation can you give to your husband!

3. If you were invited to bring peace between this couples, what advice would you give?



  1. 1. I’d be shocked. However it’s not an act based on free will. I’t would need some time to let it pass over without any hesitation.

    2. She might say that it was not on her behalf to make that decision and she feared her own life, over the husbands life. After all he admitted: all the suffering & scarifies she went thru.

    3. Recommend a dedicated course in a self-defense sport to straighten their believe in themselves, to restore their faith and overcome a similar situation, if that might occur. Apparently they still can learn from each other.
