The Perfect Mate vs. The Perfect Career.
I posed the question, Ladies: If you had to choose one, which would you pick: The perfect husband or a great career? And why? Here are the responses
A perfect husband. My career wouldn’t be worth having if I had no one to share those fruits with, Human companionship is far more essential
A perfect career beacuse you can always move up the ladder in a career and ultimately start your own busines. A perfect man doesn’t exist. We all have flaws. People change and I may change, so there’s always time for a relationship… not for a career
The perfect husband is forever, careers are temporary. I don’t think my career could ever bring me that much fulfillment.
The family chick in me wants to say husband, but a perfect husband doesn’t guarantee that I’ll be a perfect wife. I’m wise enough to know that in some of my failed relationships, I was part of the problem.
The perfect husband because love takes precedence over a career and money plus it will make rough days at work a little easier knowing I have someone to come home to. Also, my perfect husband will of plenty of money so I won’t have to worry about that.
The perfect career because I want to be dependent on a man to take care of me. I need to be able to take care of myself… and I’m sure I can find a not so perfect guy and mold him into what I want him to be
A perfect husband because a career can’t be my best friend nor a shoulder to cry on in times of need nor be my lover when I want to be intimate.
A perfect career because I don’t want to be doing something I hate for the rest of my life.
The prefect husband… I find serenity in my home life. I would rather have a mate that compliments me and my habits… What good is the perfect career if you have no one to share your accomplishments with?
A perfect career. I am two classes away from my masters. I am goal oriented, driven I don’t have time to waste.
Perfect Husband. Good dudes these days are harder to find every day.
I think I can always find a good job, I would choose a good husband
A perfect husband because for me family & building one is more important than a great career! What you reap from a career can only fulfill so much for me
I would choose the PERFECT HUSBAND because he would understand and respect my PREFECT CAREER.
The responses seem to be based on age and personal experience. Women who already have an established career overwhelmingly answered that a good husband was most important. Contrarily, woman who recently graduated or are starting a new career seem to believe that love should be put on hold until personal goals are accomplished.
Please feel free to answer the question for yourself. Men what would you choose: The perfect wife or the perfect career?
