Family is way more important, of course. We may have little, but we have each other.

Family is something which you cannot avoid because they will be there untill you pass away trust me but luxury is just materialistic thing and you cannot depend on it

Definitely, family. We can't afford to let kids raise themselves otherwise we create a chaotic world without morals. Again, kids will always copy what the parents do; if you are never at home when needed, it will be no big deal to them when they also become parents.

I think joy is not hostage to luxury, and even in difficult circumstances, a family can find joy in togetherness. Therefore, family over luxury.

Family, for sure. "Luxuries" are temporary - family is forever!

Family is definitely more important. However, it is for your family that you wish to obtain the luxuries of life so that you can create the best life possible for them.

Family. They are the greatest luxury in the world. I've been broke financially, broken emotionally, lost spiritually, but at the end of the day, I've had the love of my family. And that truly is enough.

Family is the best. Luxury without happines is nothing and happines is brought by family due to security you have

It'd be a lonely existence. And the more money you have, fhe higher the likelihood that the people around you become fake... at least that's my opinion
I totally agree with you. I'd choose family anytime. If I had tons of money but not have my family to spend for, I wouldn't have anything meaningful to spend it on. As to having both.. I think all of us can, with diligence and smarts, attain financial comfort that balances with the family life

What is luxury without loved ones to enjoy it with? Luxury won't comfort in times of pain and sorrow, family will, and besides luxury can vanish anytime

Family over luxury for me.
What you want is 15 Christmases on December 25th, 15 birthdays, 15 years of sleeping next to him and waking up with him

I think I'd go for family. Success and happiness can increase manifold when shared with loved ones!

My family is an integral part if my life. Luxury without a stable family will eventually end up in shambles. Therefore, I prefer my family first and then luxury later.

Definitely family. I mean luxuries are nice, but without family, what's the point? If family is all you have, at least you have each other.

It depends. Some family members are really stupid.
