• Family....what good is a career and money if there's no one to share it with.
  • I think it was John Lennon that said, "Life is what happens while your busy making plans". Career is important. Family is important and I think the prioritizing of all changes at times.
  • Kids and family. Although my husband would have to have a career to support us.
  • Family ... I want a family.
  • It depends on the person. Some people have no desire to be coupled, some people have no desire to have children, be they adopted or biological. Some people would rather have a large family and no career. Some people would rather have one or two kids and a career. Some people would rather have a spouse and a career. Some people want none of the above. And all of those are fine. If I had to choose only one, I would choose the family, since I already have that! Even if someone chooses family over career, though, I think it's important to realize that they will still need something that they enjoy doing, and that is their own, even if they don't do it to make money. Everyone needs a break to do their own thing every now and then, and choosing family doesn't mean that your family has to take up 100% of your time. I think many people - paricularly at-home parents - forget that.
  • Family! I sitting here all alone at the airport for my job. I love this job, but I would rather have someone with me to share things with.
  • Having kids. We, unfortunately, only have each other (my husband and myself) and jobs. In the end, we will have no one.
  • To have a full life in Christ Jesus and to know God's will and purposes for my life in my vertical relationship with God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit and my horizontal relationship with my family, my brothers & sisters in the Lord, my relatives, my friends, my community and people of the world at large.
  • I'd choose a career and do important work that makes an impact on the world.
  • Having a family all my life ive wanted a wonderful husband and my children around me. altho i had a terrible family life and i dont see them really. i want to be able to make a difference to people that care about me (a good difference!) i cant wait to start my family.
  • Having a solid relationship with people who really love me. Money comes and goes, but great family, great friendships are rare.
  • For me, I am choosing the career path. I want my life to mean something and I don't want to a mother, so a fulfilling career is what I see for myself in the future. :)
  • I feel sorry for people with a good career but without a family. They are lonely in life. There is nobody to share the success and money with. Family is a first priority for me personally.
  • I suppose my life has already chosen. I wouldn't say it was a career, but rather the freedom to navigate through life in a lighter way. I admit there is sadness that wells up in me for mostly being alone, yet my siblings all married and gave me 15 nieces and nephews, that had 14 more. so being an uncle and great uncle has been the blessing.
  • Neither. Being an understanding and lucid person is more important than either. Many career types commit suicide or end up in dead end posts. Most family types end up in abusive relationships and depression. Developing yourself before committing to family or career is a much surer path to long term success.
  • i think they can both be equally important, i havent had either
  • If kiddies are important to you, then you have your answer. If you could only choose one, which would it be? Your answer is now your first priority. I don't like kids. I didn't like kids when I was a kid, and nothing ever happened to change my mind. I especially don't like screeching babies or toddlers. That was the main reason I never got married nor embroiled in cohabitation, and I have zero regrets. I like peace and quiet. Gals like melodrama, conflict, and noise. Kiddies love to make noise, and start crap. Gals and kiddies go together like icing on cake. Neither was compatible with my requirements. To make an informed decision you need to know yourself, what you can live with, and what you are well able to live without.
  • Family, cause a career is a continually evolving project.
  • I don't like kids, so a career that pays a lot, and allows me to buy a house, a car, travel and do all kinds of fun things.
