because he would kill his father and marry his mother

because he would kill his uncle and marry his daughter

because he would kill his son and marry his wife

Answers

Answer 1
Answer: The correct answer is because he would kill his father and marry his mother.
Even though Laius wanted to prevent this prophecy from happening, it eventually happened nevertheless - Oedipus killed Laius and married Jocasta, his mother, even though he did not know at the time who they were. That's where we have the Oedipus complex from.
