There’s one great gaping hole in your article: families. Sure, you addressed kids, but only in passing.

In this nation, now that most moms also have jobs outside the home, the work-life balance is crucial for being able to properly raise their children. Not only that, but someone who spends too many hours at work is likely to not pay sufficient attention to the spouse…and such greatly increases the likelihood of a failed marriage.

Failure to address that work/life balance doesn’t just affect the individual, but also affects one’s spouse, and infinitely more importantly, one’s children.

Your article is fine for single adults. For those who need to provide not just financial, but also the at-least-as-important personal and emotional support to their families…no.
