Inspired by the "Can women really have it all?" thread, I was just wondering would you women rather have a highly successful career and no kids, or would you have no career and kids.
I would personally go for the career.
Successful career. I don't want children.
woo hoo! I don't want children either!
I'm not particularly bothered about having a career. I'm extremely lazy. I'd rather not have a job at all if I can wangle it. I wouldn't mind being a kept woman! I'll try hard at a job if I find one I really like I suppose.
Whereas children I very much want for my own reasons.
You should add both to the poll.
There is no "both" option, as most people would choose it, but I would like to know if it came down to these 2 things, which one women would choose.
you cant have both. one has to take priority.
Hopefully I'll have both, but if I had to make a decision between the two I would pick children.
Children. I dont want to grow old in life and not be able to have my family around me. Though it would be nice to have a job that I enjoy as well.
What about neither? I anticipate total failure in my chosen career and I dislike kiddies...
Well, if for some reason I can't have both...I'll have to say children. I have a soft spot for babies and I'd rather be ‘successful’ mother, than a woman with a successful career.
It depends really you have two choices - No children and an advanced career or children and a career which will remain in the same state.
I think its very difficult to maintain a proper balance but I have a strong admiration towards those who can. I think that would be very few.
