    Which is more important, commitment to one's spouse or commitment to one's job? Why?

    If you had to choose between your job and spouse if it meant being separated from your spouse for a long period of time, which would you choose and why?

    wow i would say spouse because the job wont keep you warm at night and it wont comfort you in your wife but then again you need the job to keep a roof over you head.my answer its a difficult question.

    i would hope that every person would say their spouse. to make your job more important then family is rediculous.

    Spouse. Your job is a means to live, it should never be a way of life. Your spouse should be your partner in every facet of life, and should be valued at least as much as you wish to be valued by them. You can always find or create another job, and any job that would ask you to do something that could destroy your family is not a job worth having. I have often told my husband that I'd rather live in a cardboard box with him than in a mansion with a well-to-do workaholic, and that pretty well sums up my view of it. We have had financial difficulties, we're far from anyone's definition of financial wealth, and there are times that I've made career decisions that were bad for finances but necessary for my family. We're a happy, tight-knit family and my husband and I truly are best friends, so it's certainly been worth it.

    Commitment to one's self is first. When it is truly there, it will shed light on the other two. A person of character exercises the same discipline and excellence at work which he/she displays at home, and is generally attracted to and supported by a good spouse. No hard and fast rule, obviously, but a lot of the time when we get it right inside, the outside follows.
