i think it is my right to do the job which i love.my husband should understand me and support me.we can all get through our job by each other's assistance and understanding. i will need a man to share my sadness and happyness about my work and my family other wise i will be lonely.

I am a career woman and I have no problem with the family thing. I have children too. It is hard and it is a very busy lifestyle but if you want something bad enough, you can work around things.

If you want to have children, I think it is better to be married. If you don't like to have children, you can choose to be a career woman and avoid marriage. I think get married is better for most people.

If any career woman wants to delay marriage because of her marriage then she has every right to do so. We are so used to seeing the woman take care of her family that it becomes really difficult for the woman to balance career and home, esp after kids come in. men too are psychologically tuned to expect women to do everything for the family so they think that women should put their career in the background. It becomes very stressful for the woman to balance everything and frankly speaking, kids do suffer a lot if the mother is not at home. There are some couples though both of whom are very career minded and they either don’t have kids at all or they decide beforehand to continue with their careers and put their kids to some good residential school.

No. They just don't want to marry yet but they will. Their focus now is on their career, job or business, but having a family would really be coming later.

I believe that if a woman chooses not to marry because of her career she has probably given the issue a lot of thought. I believe if you are going to take on the responsibility of raising children you should absolutely consider if you will be able to give them all of the attention they require and deserve. If a woman knows that she would too often absent from her family to be assured that they are happy and healthy, then she has made the right choice in not having one.

I'm retired now but I spent 25 years in a high pressured, fast paced career. I've been married (happily) for 37 years. The key to making it work is both parties pitching in to get everything done and loving each other enough to do it! My career gave us the opportunity to live a lifestyle that we would not have been able to have otherwise and best of all allowed us to retire early. Good luck.
