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.)
Expect downvotes.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.
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 him
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.
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.
Of course , especially if the career doesn't meet up to that persons expectations 100% and deep down they feel like something is missing.
What if you career really worked out and you accomplished all of your goals?
But at the end are you genuinely happy? Because when love is involved it takes sacrifice and we have to sometimes put somethings on hold when we really love someone and find the success elsewhere if that's the case. If the career was more important than the relationship then make sure you aren't regretting anything , and deep down you're at peace with the decisions you made.
I feel like the person that loves you should try to support you through the tough times. If either person needs to work a lot at the beginning of their career and the other person won't sacrifice with them because they want instant gratification, I don't think they are the right person because there will be a lot of harder stuff to deals with when you are married with kids
But you don't know the sacrifice the person is willing to make if you didn't make any moves yourself. It takes two to tango so if you know you love that person and you're questioning yourself about the career or that person then on your behalf that's a choice you have to make. Now once you make that decision that's when the persons support is suppose to come in.
Every relationship goes through struggles but love causes you to take risks you never imagine yourself doing. It's about meeting each other halfway.
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...
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 career
If you are able to work for 5-6 years and not have to worry about money the rest of your life, your career will be with you the rest of your life.
Career does not mean money. If I'm happy at my job Ill find someone that wants me to stay happy..
I certainly would. Though I probably would have planned things out with them before I got into a serious relationship...
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 wanted

No a relationship can end, while a carrer continues
til you're fired or let go.
@Sabretooth Yea but you still have experience in count in a relationship you remain with a broken heart
It ain't worth it-my heart breaks everyday
@Sabretooth you didn't achieved your carrer goals?
Wasn't a career I was aiming for-but a girl-made a few mistakes l-unfortunately, while they could've been easily fixed-her family started putting garbage in her head-never should've taken that summer off from ged
after they see that money or carreer doesn t keep them warm. yes
Some might. I sure as hell don't.
Nope, in fact, I used to do the opposite.
Depends on the situation.
Some don't money over relationships !
I don't think that they regret it
why do people even need to choose one :/
balance is key.
