No matter what industry you work in, your career can always pose a threat to your relationship. Some might say that the two biggest relationships in your life are your romantic one, and the one you have with your career (if you really care about your work, that is). Think about it: they both consume your thoughts, can keep you up at night, monopolize your schedule, and are the driving force behind most of your major decisions. They both bring you a tremendous amount of joy, but only when you put in a good amount of work. In life, we always have to walk that fine line between attending to our responsibilities—to the ins and outs of every day—and remembering that they don’t actually matter that much. At the end of the day, it’s always our relationships that make us the happiest. If you lost your job, you’d probably find joy again. If you lost the love of your life because of your job, that’s something from which you may never recover. So here are ways your career can threaten your relationship, and how to stop it. with $20 Bills cash money— Image by � Tom Grill/Corbis

Coveting money and power over time

If you have a high motor and pride yourself on working hard, then bigger and great opportunities are bound to present themselves. They’ll mean more money, but they’ll also mean more responsibility and less time with your partner. Even when you are physically with your partner, if the crown weighs heavy on the head due to money and power, you won’t be mentally present.
