    For me right now, I am looking for a job and I am married with a lovely son, so I don't need to invest in my relationship..only to maintain it. So for practical reasons..a job please!! smile

    It's not so much more important than my family, but since i'm out of work from today, getting a job is certainly a high priority. But I would never put a job before my family or relationships.

    Jobs. Hands down. Relationships come and go. More importantly is the fact that they only matter to YOU. Jobs will always be on your record and can make or break your paycheck.

    I always think relationships are more important than a job. Money isn't everything...people who support you, love you, and are there for you are. Don't get me wrong, you have to pay the bills, but the reality is we could all live a little simpler (monetarily speaking), but we can also be very rich because of the people around us.

    For me it's a job. You gotta have the job first so you can have some security and stability. When that's taken care of then you have time for relationships and other fun stuff.

    A job is important but we are nothing without relationships.

    Depends on your own current status.

    If you are considered quite well-off then starting a relationship will be a better idea when you are thinking of having children. It is always important to have children in the early years when your wife is still young.

    But if you are zero in finance then it will be having a job so that you can support your future wife and children when you are considering setting up a family. But if you are just thinking of having a wife without children then it does not matter which start first - job or relationship.

    I just wrote about this in my hubs. I think it is important to understand that people have an idea for what their career is going to be, the effort they put in and the time they need for it - when adding a relationship it is important  to think about few things - you are adding to their life - not being the core focus. When we have someone become a part of our life, it is to understand that it is unfair to assume we take priority. He or she has had a life far before you and an idea of what type of success they want.

    But for the person who is adding you to their life-  will need to understand that a relationship has needs - time and effort - it may not be balanced, but there will need to be some provision of time and effort..if that equals to be 0-10% of the time on his/her part - it is an unfair balance and it is clear that the job is important. If it equals to 40-50% that means there is an attempt at balancing both - but perhaps the job is necessary to have a future for the relationship - sometimes its necessary for the relationship to have a job. Just depends on what line of career your are in and where you want your success to be.

    Relationships of course. I left my job when I felt I had no time to spend with my daughter. This does not mean you should not work, it just means you should give top priority to your relationship above everything else.

    Given the economy? Job or course without undermining my treasured relationships.

    my first priority will always be relationships, job is what you get but relations are what you build

    I think that balancing your work and your relationships is the key to happiness. Without good relationships, what is the point of working so hard. Without money, relationships struggle to flourish.
