What is more important luxury or family?

What is more important to you, luxurious life without having time with your family; or being with your family helping each other through ups and down?
Max journey is not easy but each one of us has a freedom to choose.

Give me your thoughts to ponder. :eusa-think:

I'd pick family... i wish I could have them both, but i truly believe there's no worth in having a bunch of money to spend, and no one to spend any time with. 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

Your right! We can't live without our family. Money will just come but our love ones are not their for a life time. :)

I agree, though it would be nice to be able to find a balance :|

I definitely choose family because the luxuries of this life are nothing without my family. My family is my main reason of surviving.

I believe in my own power of will, however I have people who give me a certain push to make my own fortune and enjoy the sweetness sharing it together. I can't imagine having the luxury all by myself, not having a close soul to share it with, I mean, love is in sharing, right?

Your right, cheers! Family weighs much than fabulous luxurious life.

Exactly! Cheers! We have our own will, the awesome gift of God. And, it is a selfish thing without sharing when we experienced luxurious life. Sharing is an act of love. You're right! :lol:

Family is more important! A luxurious life does not necessarily translate into a happy one. A person living a luxurious life will still face the ups and downs of life, have good days and bad. And you cannot live a happy life without a family's love and support to help you through!

:tiphat: Absolutely, Your right! We may have ups and down but at the end our family is the source of our comfort and will give us strength to continue. :D

Family, of course. I would be surprised if someone would choose luxury over family.

I have seen lot's of people who run after luxury leaving their family. It is unwise to do that. Luxury can perish but the family lives forever. As inhuman as luxury is, we cannot have any communication with it. Choose your family.

For me it's quite obvious: family. Granted, having money is helpful as well, but not at the cost of losing your loved ones.

I completely agree. I wish we could have both. But, life is full of surprises. If I had to chose, I'd pick family.They are all crazy, but I like it that way.

I believe that family is more important because you can have all the luxury in the world and be alone. No human can truly be happy being completely alone.
