It's like a 60/40 or 70/30 split.....with the kids ranking on the higher side.....no job means no caring for child and living under a bridge (where I'm sure there are bad habits for them topick up on).....SO, the job IS important, BUT, the children are our future (Thanks Whitney) :)
It's a split... Your family comes first, however you have to provide for them. Do the best you can and your kids will understand. It can be done, but you will have no social life unless you go with others that have kids. Your kids will understand when they are older.
