Hello @Alain Van Hout,
I don't know if you read my whole comment.
But i didn't say that i'm absolute with this but what works for me.

I stated that if i had to choose between family and work (and couldn't do these 2 things together) I would choose family of course.

Please don't be quick on your judgement to others.
I merely said what is on my head and on my daily routine. I don't expect anyone to follow my routine because they don't have my life.

That's good to hear.

I did read the rest of your comment before replying, and even then the first sentence still sounded like an absolute, in the sense that it seemed that you'd expect it to be true for most people -- i.e. barring unusual exceptions.

That's the problem with language I suppose, especially in written form: it's very easy to find different meanings in the same piece of text :).
