I'm asking because alot of people work for very long hours and never get to see their family/children. Is it worth the extra money to not spend time with your family? If you are barely getting by, thats another issue, BUT if you have enoguh money say, working only 40 hrs a week (for example) Why work overtime? Is more money more important than family??

I have to say that right now we have to have all of the money that we can get to support our family. My husband and I both work seven days per week right now to support each other. It is not that we love money more, but we have to have it to make it in life. I love my family the most. That is why I work so much to help provide for them. My husband lost a good paying job and makes less money now. We have to work alot of hours because we still have the bills to pay on less money and gas prices keep going up and food also..

I can relate to this. Money changes everything. my mom always work, just to earn money. I know that she's doing this things for us, but the problem is, she doesn't give us enough time. she's spending her time just to sleep, because she was so tired from work. it really affects us.

No. Money will never compare to family. To me, family is the most important thing in my life. Especially after the earthquake disaster, I realize that nothing can be much more important than my family. It's enough happy for me to stay with my family and we are fine. We work hard just to make a living and offer a better situation for family. I love China

There are some peoples who are like that. But i think money is not so important then your family your family is the most important thing then any other.What ever you are now is because of your family. They have done so many things for you. And thats why you will reach somewhere. Peoples who forgot their family efforts to reach them at certain level are really sick.
