As a wife, I prefer to be with my family rather than to be with friends. It is good to have friends.

I think both of them are important and if I had to chose between them, I'd rather not. They say friends are the family you get to choose and I think that is absolutely true. Friends are my extended family and I love them all and would be incomplete without one of them.

Yes they are. I have this few friends who have always been there for me and have always supported me. And they were there during my low times and my worst days too so I know they are my true friends.

Hello there ranilo70. I guess you got though choices out there. Well for me i would choose my family over my friends. Though i know i got good friends whom i can trust and share my problems but they are not there all the time unlike my family. Though my friends care but there could be no greater love and care i felt than that from my family. Have a lovely day ranilo70!

aha,it's really hard to say who is more important.for man ,friends are as important as family,you know human beings are social creature, only together with family is really wonderful,but to communicate with friends is also interesting.you can have a try,step outside and talk with friends!

TALKING WITH FRIENDS IS GOOD. YOU CAN GET SOME IDEAS AND AS WHAT YOU CAN SAY ITS INTERESTING. bUT TALKING ABOUT FAMILY IS DEFERS. FAMILY IS ALWAYS THERE FOR YOU TO HELP YOU EVEN WHEN YOU ARE FACING TROUBLES OR TRIALS. THOUGH THICK AND THIN THEY ARE THERE FOR YOU UNLIKE FRIENDS.

Ofcourse family comes first when asked which is more or even most important or the one which I prefer the most. But every one needs occassional sidelines and my friends give me that. Ofcourse my family too understands my needs in those times.

okay i respect your response swaana. friends can be friends whom you can have sidelines as what you have said. yes family understands you for they are there for you! but then you have said family is whom you prefer most. good to hear that.

Sometimes friends are more like family then family. Some families are so dysfuncional that you run from them. Your friends then become your extended family and guess what? They love you and treat you better than your blood relatives. How sad is that?

yes it is sad to hear that some of the families as what you have said are dysfunctional whom people resort their attachments to friends whom they considered as extended family. yes they can be called extended. but i think if we talk about dysfunctional family maybe there is something wrong with the family. there might be no communication either to both you and your family then. or meaning you are not open to both of you. yes there is love but that love is different from family.

I can't decide. I love my friends because I can hangout with them and you pick your own friends, so I guess you like your friends more - most of the time. I don't have a husband, or children, so I'll pick friends. If I were to be married I would definitely pick family.

well, family doesn't only mean having husband or children. if you have parents and brothers or sisters they are then your family. yes you can hang out with friends. you can pick your own friends. you can be with your friends all the time. but family is always there for you. i respect your decision.

No doubt family is important.All in my friendship world have the nature to inspire others for better attachment with family. I think if one is with a friendship wanting more importance than family he lose family as well as the friendship.

yes i agree with you. we have friends but our family is the closest friends that we have. if we choose our friends we will lost our family. but if we choose our closest friends our family we will never loose them.

Of course the family is more important than friends. Because family is everything to me.

As a child, both important to my family and friends, family first because if you have a problem they already help you because you can they share with them and they are willing to listen to the person, secondly the friends they also provide fun as they are ready and you sympathize with the problems, hence the family and friends and both in human life.

depends on different circumstances...if you are alone, if you are married, if you dont have goog mood ....I believe that people tend to underestimate what they have in one particular moment and look for ....generally sth other from this
