Money is almighty. for some people money is the most important to them, but for me my family is the most important to me. my family background is not so good we can even put it as poor. we can not afford to buy a car, a big house in the city or expensive jewels, but all of us are happy and love each other. i hope to be rich and to make a lot of money but my family always will be the first important.

according to me both are important in an equal proportion. its the way in which we see which is more important. if we give more importance to money and bothered little about family,we will feel very depressed. it may leads to many diseases and atlast we will not have a single soul to take care of us. if we care more about our family,and if we don't earn money then no one will respect us and we wont have enough money to survive in this world. this world has already become money minded. so we should know the art to balance between both family and money.

I agree with sanofer Both are important. You are very luck if you have a loving family who's always there to support you, to guide you and always be there for you whenever you have a problem. Our parents send us to school for us to have a better life someday. They want us to have a great job and earn well. They also give us some advice on how to save money right, so I believe that both family and money are important to us.

i can understand your point, your point is reasonable, but i still believe that money is more important. we can live in this world with our hands and with our hard work, even if lived a hard life. but how can i live without family, we are a social people, most of our happiness is coming from our family.

Family is the most important to me and being given by GOD. Friends , money may come and go but family is the one constant you have in your life. They are always BE THERE no matter what happens whether you have money or not. Family gives you the basic strength as a person.

for me family is more important than money ....the reason is that, if you have money but you don't have family then what its use ? people want money just for their family ,to live happy and satisfied life . if you get millions of dollar but you don't have choice to use your money then it is useless.... so for me family is more important....

Yes i totally agree with you. money is important and without money it is hard for us to live in this world. but i think the most important for me is happiness and money cannot buy happiness even though it can buy a lot of things. you own a lot of money not means that you own happiness, but you own family which means you own wealth.

To me as well family is most important. We don't have a lot of moeny either. But my family will always be the most important to me. I hope to always have this as a priority. I value people and relationships over money and wealth. I would like to have a comfortable living but I don't have to be rich.

Family is priceless and can never be replaced by money so for me obviously I will choose family than money. Of what benefit it is if you have all the wealth but you don't have a family whom you will share it with.. the value of family is not measured by your lifestyle. we have different situations which sometimes we never wished to have but that is the color of life. Whatever happens our family will still be our priority in life.

As an old saying goes in our country that a happy family means wealth. The members in family are unique.Lose means forever.But for money,another old saying goes:The daughter disperses completely also return. You can earn money through your endeavor, but family can be kept yet never be earned.

Hi jakeyangchao, to me my family is the most valuable wealth in my life. No thing can rival it at all. I'm so happy and fortunate that I possess a family with all our members living pleasantly and harmoniously under one roof I'm satisfied with my family life living in a small bungalow in the out skirt of a town. I'm not the type of person who is zealous in pursuit in fame and money. I'm content with what I have. That's to live with dear and close family members happily and harmoniously. Of course we have to be diligent to work for our daily expenses to live a comfortable life as well Happy posting

family first. I value family more than money or any physical object. No matter how busy I may be, I make sure I spend time with my family especially my kids.

I think both is important. I came from a family that is just earning enough for our daily needs. I got a job and also my brother and our salary is just enough to support my sister with her studies and for our daily needs. There were times that I want to buy something for myself but I couldn't because I don't have extra money, but I'm still happy because my parents and also my siblings are very supportive and I think that's all they can give due to lack of money. I always dream of becoming rich because honestly there are things, material things that will make you happy not only your family. I am not saying that I don't love my family, I love them so much but in reality things that you want to have and you want to buy will make you happy and it will make you more happier if you have it both, a loving family and plenty of money =).

Money for me. You cannot start a family without money but you can have money without family. Family importance is kinda given already, it's not questionable. But money is, and as humans, we need to earn money to obtain and achieve just about everything else.. including having and raising family :)

hello, Of course family is the my first choice because they give me happiness and life that I cant have in money. Me too I am not that rich but I am still happy because I have a complete family. I love them. If I can be rich right now i still want to be with them till the end.
