Do people regret choosing their career over a relationship?
What Girls Said 13
Some people do, definitely. Sadly, I knew of a man who... retired at 40 (because he started his own company and was extremely successful). He (eventually) was a billionaire. (Not millionaire - BILLIONAIRE). However towards the end of his life he was alone. (He never married, never had kids, no long-term relationship.) He devoted his entire life to his career. And while he was so successful (financially), he had absolutely no one to share it with. On his 60th birthday he jumped off a bridge. Money does not buy happiness. (Very sad, but true story.)1
Depends on the relationship. If it's a marriage that I'd salvageable yes. If not then I chose myself. Like someone said, careers will always be there, most relationships won't. You have to learn to balance your life. But if the right person comes along I will make time for him0
I personally think the key is balancing life. But I also believe that some people are just capable of being satisfied with themselves and don't really need a relationship. I am not saying they don't date or socialize. But that maybe they are comfortable enough being with just themselves and enjoy life that way.0
Some don't money over relationships !0
after they see that money or carreer doesn t keep them warm. yes1
why do people even need to choose one :/1
Nope, in fact, I used to do the opposite.0
I think at the end of the day a career isn't going to be there for you. however if your partner really loves you they would want you to succeed in your career0
I don't think that they regret it0
balance is key.0

here ya go, fam
Yes. I have spent 14 years to be where I'm at, and have missed out on what could have been beautiful relationships. Two different loves have explained, they wanted my time, not my money.0
no if you find people saying love is complicated and I need love nothing else, they're probably the ones who didn't get a job they wanted0
I sure as hell don't.0
in truth there is no such choice , even if we work 12hrs a day we still have 12and only 6hrs rest is enough so remaining 6 we can spend with our family...0
I certainly would. Though I probably would have planned things out with them before I got into a serious relationship...0
Career does not mean money. If I'm happy at my job Ill find someone that wants me to stay happy..0
Depends on the situation.0
I've heard some people express this view. They were all women.
For men, focusing on career early almost always opens up more relationship possibilities later.
Now you -will- hear older men say things like they wish they'd spent more time with their family versus working, but that's a little different from what you're asking.
