    What matters most to you? Getting your career going or having a family?

    as for me, i think first is having job then i'll think to have family, because i've to make my life.. working first then i'll think to make a family :-/ this is my opinion about this question...how about you folks?

    Well, you can't really have a successful family without a successful career now can you?

    I know some are just fine with having a basic job to make ends meet when they have made plans to build a family. Some even rush to make a family without a job. :)

    For me though, I wanted to be more fulfilled in my career before I ever thought of settling down. I aimed for higher paying jobs and prestige and spent my days focused on work, work, work for years.

    The irony is that when I finally settled down, I also eventually quit working full time. My family focus has become more important at the moment. It helps that I still get side jobs, have savings, and my husband is also employed so we're not really hurting financially.

    I'm sure couples who both have (or want) to work full time find a way to make time for themselves and their family, not just their jobs. Everything just needs a balance. :)

    I plan on having the security of a good job and my own car before I consider starting a family.

    I'd like a bit of both please. If I don't have a stable job then there's not much point in me starting a family.

    I think I'd be much more concerned about getting a good job, and I haven't even been to university yet. I won't start thinking about settling down until I have a career. Maybe not even then, I don't know. Family is extremely important to me, but that means the family I have right now, not a future one.

    As for me, im 18, family is not real high up on my list at the moment, so career i guess.
