I'd pick family over anything in any day. Living a life full of luxuries would be meaningless if I'm not with my family. Being able to be with my family in the most fortunate and unfortunate times is something I'd pick over the temporary fulfillment that luxuries may give me.

First of all, what's the sense of having a luxury/ comfortable life if you don't have people to share with the happiness brought by those things? Even if I am going to be asked for million times, luxury or family? It would always be family. Let's just say you have a mansion, lots of cars, and working in a prestigious company, but at the end of the day, you will be home with no one waiting for you. No one to share dinner with. No one whom you can share your thoughts and feelings. You come to work always with a big smile but behind that, there's a void in your heart that a family can only fill.

Oh yeah luxury is much meaning full when you have a family with you
..family is also called luxury for people's. If you DON'T have family with you in all fields and you were suffering on luxury life.that luxury life nothing without family.i like luxury but first family should be with me .

I think the most important thing is family because they will always be there for you when you need it.

For me it family because if one spend time with family there are some understanding kids can get from you to help change their mentalities in future and can make them different from others if you don't do that you just live a life of no impact

I would have loved to choose luxury but a life without family isn't a life worth living. Just imagine having all the luxurious things life could afford, and there is no family member(s) to enjoy it with, it would just be a lonely hell of a luxury.

So therefore, family before any other thing be it luxury.

Family is more important than luxury because family brings happiness and comforts someone at all times compared to luxury which when your in trouble it can not be able to comfort you I myself have that experience of a family which is good .My family is fun to be with they always make my day because we have all kinds of comedians.

Obviously Family is the most important and it is the basic unit of society. Luxury or money can't buy all the memories you've done with your family. Luxury can not comfort you and give advice when you are down but a family can do. Also money can be gone while a family stays forever.

Family is always the most important.

I choose family....family is where u get love which brings happiness, and there is nothing more important than happiness in life.....though it's healthy to have some luxury,it should never come before family...but I think there is no harm in bringing luxury into family because it adds to the fun and happiness...
