This is so true. As much as I want to give my daughter everything she could ever want , there honestly would be no reason to go on without her , I chose family over luxury any day . Because family makes you want to wake up in the morning , even if they drive you crazy for 364 days of the year . I agree one hundred percent living in solitude is miserable.

I choose family, it always gets better in your life when you are with people that care about you.

In my opinion, family is more important because one can always gain luxury bit family comes only once

Family is essential but money does buy happiness. When the family is in abject poverty is everyone really happy?

What's the point of having all the materialistic luxuries in life when you're all alone, with no one to share your happiness and love with? Family is that luxury which cannot be bought by money and is above all always.

Exactly! But, I also believe that family is more than blood. I live a long way away from my family, and to a large degree my family has become my friends.

Family my number one because without them your luxury is nothing. Is like saving for a stranger to inherit after you are gone.

Family is more important. Money comes and goes and you can always gain it or lose, but Family as much as we like to think they will always be there, they won't. so cherish them while you have them.

For Me, my family is more important than any luxury. I can gain luxury with my family but, I would not get family if I chose luxury.

to my on understanding is both of them since it is out from the family where you get the luxury type of what you want. for example when husband and wife come together they share so many ideal to make their life a success. according to me both of them are important and is out of this views from you where you have a luxury of what you need to succeed in life.

Family first...luxury can come later because with or without all the fancy stuff, family is always there to give support.

family is the most important thing in life since is from this family where you lay your stepping foundation. actually luxury is the least important among the two since you can do without it. it is out of the family where you get to no your strengths and weakness and have a positive altitude as a family in solving weaknesses.

Honestly family is more important than luxury.We have just one family while materials can never replace someone and we will all died and leave all those materials on earth.

Hmm.. That's a good question. In normal circumstances, I would say the family of course. But since I can blurt things out here without any personal damage, I can say I would put more importance in luxury.

Everyone in our family is brought up in practical ways on how to survive and protect ourselves. That includes ditching anyone if our own lives are in peril even if it means that we will lose someone dear or as close as family.

No offense to anyone but money is our indicator to someone on how much they have in value. If you are poor, that means you contribute less to the society. If it is otherwise, you do things that you love and value that the society can benefit from.

We live in a twisted world (or so I think) and in times, you have to take off a part of you for the greater good.

Then again, luxury or family? Luxury for me.
