you choose love over career?

taking an extended leave from her job as a Dateline NBC
contributing anchor to support her husband, Governor Arnold
Schwarzenegger. Would you give up your career for someone
An overwhelming majority of 70 percent
of both male and female members answered that "Yes, I
would do it because I loved him/her, and sometimes that
means putting your partner's needs ahead of your own."
The remaining 30 percent answered:
"No, I would be happier in the relationship if I could
achieve my own dreams and contribute monetarily."
"The Date.com results show that despite
being a nation of workaholics, many people are willing
to trade it all in for a loving relationship," said Brenda
Ross, relationship advisor for Date.com.
"It's nice to see that the vast majority
of people are firm believers in the importance of love,
even if it means putting on hold or giving up their careers,"
This poll generated 1609 respondents.
