    Should the health of my wife be more important to me than my work?

    I am working in a government organisation. Recently my wife met with an accident and is now is in a hospital. I think it is my moral duty to be by her side at this time. But I canít leave my work . I am really confused as what to do now. Please guide me in the right direction.

    Hi,

    Both are important, but in your case family is no doubt more important now....You pay more attention to the work at any point of time, while there are normal situations...

    Hence just think, why you are earning...for maintain your family only...

    Please understand family is more important than work in situations like you...

    Speek to your boss and ask for some leave...so that your wife will also feel better... and that will inpact when you will spend more time at office in normal situations..

    See both things are important in their part, you cannot set priorities in such things as both are important part of your life.

    If there are other members in your family who can take care of your wife in the hospital than there is no need of taking the leave but in between your

    work as you get time you can go to the hospital and can take timely information about her.

    Also if needed than you can take leaves in between so that you can take much better care of your wife.

    As until your wife will not get well again you will remain worried and thus will effect your work also, so just be sure that you are able to take proper

    care of your wife.

    So you don't need to get confused and it is better that you tell your boss about the problem you are facing right now so that if you need to leave

    office on any urgent basis than you don't need to explain your boss about the reason.
