losing all your money to ransom or your child? or what if you had to choose between leaving your job and taking a part time job because your loved one needed your care in sickness?

One can lovingly care for a person without going destitute. The premise in the form of a question was presented childishly and illogically. The question was asked in an askewed manner. People with thriving careers have cared for loved ones.
I think someone that feels like money is everything is lacking the true appreciation for people.Kind of sad. People always say how happy my husband and I are and its definently not from bein rich
So you have the poverty mentality. It is "great" to go into debt to care for people. Well, that isn't logical. One can be wealthy, have a career, and loving care for people. What are YOU "thinking", if at all!
I have a mindset of ,my family would be my first priority,if i went from wealthy to struggling to be there for them,i would do it.struggling to get by is not the end of the world it adds character and strength
Hi Grace Marguerite Williams, I believe that the person who put the question in the first place has the right to decide on how to put that question. If you disagree, that is fine. You will have the same right when you are in that position.
Let's be reasonable here. People can care for people yet retain their careers and wealth.Hello, is anyone HOME?! Dashingscorpio and I are the only sensible, mature, and intelligent ones here! The question is insane in scope!
THANK YOU, people can provide for a loved one and still have thriving careers Dashing, I can't believe SOME people, really.Where are their THINKING process and LOGICAL REASONING. One doesn't have to be impoverished to care for a loved one!
what you call illogical i call love ,which you still need money to survive, but you need love otherwise you are worth as much to humanity as the material things you can buy
This isn't love but askewed reasoning. People unthinkingly become homeless with your attitude. One can care for a relative and still have wealth/career. What world are you from? To go into debt for a loved one is beyond preposterous, it is stupid!

Again ad continuum, one can have a successful/thriving career and provide great care for a loved one. How many times must I say this One doesn't have to go into impoverishment to care for a loved one.That notion is beyond ridiculous, even inane.
Yes i agree i could never put someone in a nursing home if i was physically able to care for them,why? i worked in laundry at a nursing home and a.nursing home takes away most of their possesions,their privacy,their self esteem.
There are EXCELLENT nursing homes around.If one has wealth,h/she is able to have private nursing care.It is done and has been done. You have a VERY LIMITED PERSPECTIVE on problem solving.I have NEVER met anyone like you in my life.....
Your perspective boggles me too
but I suppose there is good in indifference in people as proven in the past,in history and today.If everyone had the same perspective we would be all the same
It ISN'T indifference. I am not going into debt for anyone. If my child was kidnapped, I would contact the authorities. That is what INTELLIGENT people do. People do not quit working to care for loved ones. They provide the needed care and work!
I have been on HP for nearly a year. I have never, ever come across someone who puts their view forward in such a rude and aggressive manner as gmwilliams. I will stay away from that name in future.
Not rude at all, just opinionated as New Yorkers are. We say as we see it, straight no chaser. We are hardcore realists regarding life. No sugarcoating Pollyanna fantasy but the hard facts!
Grace Marguerite Williams, I was answering the question presented above the way I would deal with the situation that is presented. We all have different views and the above is my answer. It doesn't have to be the same with yours.
Thank you for your answer,it's good to know that there are people with a heart in the world.
Nichol marie. . . Rest assured, that there are many many more who "have a heart" as you would put it, and very few that would rate material gain over emotional tranquillity.
That is a good thing a world full of money crazed people would be a sad place.
