    Happy relationship. Every. Single. Time.

    I would much rather be a stay at home mum to a huge family and have a house filled with love and laughs and wonderful complicated human nature than to be rolling in money by myself.

    Lots of very successful people kill themselves due to the crippling loneliness....

    Title ^^
    If the woman is above 5/10 looks wise the answer will be relatinship.

    Especially in the West, when you're an attractive woman you dont need career when all you have to do is spread your legs and have men do stuff for you

    It's 2016 FFS. Nobody would ask this question about guys. Asking it about girls creates pressure on them, making it feel as if there has to be a choice.

    If anyone's career should take second place to protect a relationship or bring up kids, it should be the man who makes that sacrifice, given how many generations have done it the other way round.

    feck that. thats easily replaceable. long term thats more important but career for sure in that case.
    that's not necessarily true, my parents were married for about 20 years and ended up hating each other, but my best friend's parents never got married, and they are still in love.

    marriage is not refined within a ceremony or paper, or even vows to God. marriage is a complete commitment to each other; having a piece of paper, and making it harder to separate during divorce does not ensure lifelong commitment.

    as for the career vs love topic: why can't I have both?

    get off anonymous yeh weirdo.

    exactly its a personal thing. didnt work for your parents but works for others. obivously a gf at my age doesnt have the same significance as my wife with four kids.

    why cant I have both? ofc yeh can yeh dimwit. but yeh had to choose.

    The looks don't last forever so won't help in the long run.

    You'll need brains to survive.

    Not really. If you're good lookig enough, just bag yourself a well-off guy (as as good as you can get), then when you inevitably get divorced just take half his stuff, Sorted.


    you may scoff at this and think I'm being facetious, but the behaviour I've described is actually increasingly common amongst women today.

    Happy relationship. The people you love who love you are what matter in life. So long as I enjoy/don't detest my job and it brings in enough money to keep a roof over my head and food on my table and let me do nice things occasionally, I couldn't care less about it.
