    It’s about who is willing to hold your hand when you need it the most.

    Because family is always there for you even when you mess up extremely bad. While friends come and go and can leave you or betray you for stupid reasons. That is why family is more important than friends.

    family is not about sharing genetics,thats being related,family is when you someone to death & would do anything for them, we can trust them & in return they do the same. Its the type of bond hold together.

    your family and spouse should have priority over friends 98% of the time. with exceptions due to a bad family history. or something of that nature. family is forever!! and they can’t be replaced.
    i ask you this: if your mom and friend were trapped in a burning building and you could only save one life. who would you choose? family or friend…i know my answer!

    From my point of view family are always more important than friends. First of all, needless to say, family means father and mother identify love with you, what a meaningful anagram just for my part. Your family is made up of the people you care about and the people who care about you. My primary concern is that your family especially your parents are who give your life from, there is should no question for you should or should not thank your parents, that is your must give anything in the world to redound upon them with appreciation and gratitude. In addition, Family gives your courage, confidence, yummy and tranquillity. They will give your love even more than themselves. On the contrary, sometimes friends only can be able to settle for you. With any luck, your friends can be active and hilarious than family in external, you can hangout with your friends anytime anywhere and talk about anything. But for your family, they are dreaming to have a dinner with you together but you are still hectic and never squeezing yourself in even if a little while. Anyways, they bless you instead of complaining you. Furthermore, you don’t have to say too much together sometimes, so many soul communications that you can clear see your hearts each other. Family is a part of your life identity, each family member is your soul mate, you share the same blood, although there are no specific relationships, you are still in a big family, they will protect and bless you, as always. Just the opposite, some friends are just passengers, they can’t stay and help forever .But family does, family is always on your side, no matter there is sad or happy, poor or rich, family will support you forever and ever.

    Family isn’t blood. Family are the people who have been by your side from the moment they met you and haven’t given it a second thought. They are the people who love you for you and not what they think you should be. They are the people who have cared in good an bad. So “family” is most important.

    my family is much more precious to me because they are the one who love, care and protect me first before my friends.

    And based on what i have observed, friends are just there during good times but during your loss you can’t lean on to them. You are lucky if there is one whom you can count on. So for me Family is much more important..because they will be there for you for better and for worst.

    Family is obviously more important. Friends come and go; but your family will always be there for you. And unfortunately, one day they won’t be and that may be one of the most tragic days in your life. But one thing that you can always cherish is the good times and memories.

    Family is more important because they bloody provide a roof over your head with water, clothes, a bed, furniture and ect. If you’re not happy, then get out of the house.

    I think that family is more important, because in life, you friends will probably not be in your life anymore. I mean even though you have bad times with your family, they are still there. They have to be there for you. Having a blood connection is stronger that a friendship. But it depends on what type of family you grew up in. If your family was loving and caring, family should be the most important. But at the same time, if you had a bad childhood, like being abused by parents. Now that’s a different story. But I really think family is the best.

    If you choose friends then they are kinda like your family and would be considered your family so family would be more important. :D

    Family is more important because you know they will always have your back no matter what you go through, being related by blood is much stronger than having a connection with a person and later they may or may not still be in your life.

    Importance on anyone is based on how much importance the person gives to someone. There is no right answer. Personally Family is more important than friends.

Friends are more important than family

  1. Farzana Akther Zoya [1] argued:

    Friends are more important than families .Because friends they can understand us. Many things are there which we cant share with our family it is why they think we are kid at any stage of life but friends understand that it was a mistake and whatever is going is normal.And friends can typically be more COMPLETLY honest with each other as equal rather than authority lines in family

  2. Sara [2] argued:

    My best friend is always there for me when things get hard, while my family makes it even worse. For example, I was so stressed that I was close to running away and/or do drugs. My best friend gave me great advice and called me every day for few weeks. My family, on the other hand, did not give a damn about it. Just because you’re related to someone doesn’t mean you should love them.

  3. Movindu [1] argued:

    I personaly think Friends are more important because:What could be more fun than hanging around with your friends, it’s a carefree life. Friends know what’s going on in and around school, they can relate to you, they gossip, they laugh about just about anything (funny or not), they don’t tell you what to do or where to go, they don’t lecture you, they don’t force chores on you, they don’t ground you and they don’t tell stories of ‘when I was your age……….’
    Friends are chosen; they understand you and they are always there for you. This is only true when you have chosen well in your friendship, which may not always be the case. But that is why you can chose your friend but you cant chose your family.
    When you are a baby your family are obviously more important as they look after you and you have not had a chance to establish a good friendship over that short period of time, whereas when you are over 10, your family are often not as important as they used to be. Generally at this stage of life, being with people who are similar in age and opinions has much greater importance than spending time with family. Family is often taken for granted. Which is exactly what the affirmative team has said.

    *Friends understand and see the world in similar terms as you. Because they are your contemporaries, they experience major life events around the same age as you and their ideas are not influenced by events that happened before your life, therefore they don’t blame you for things that happened in the past and they look forward to the future.

    *Friends bring different cultural ideas into your life. Family members usually have the same religion, same political affiliation, same opinionated, etc. Having friends who are of a different social class, different culture, and different religion will introduce you to different ideas and your mind may have changed. It is good to have friends that have different cultures than you because there are festivals that you can join in and have fun.

    Friends do not have dreams or ideas about how you should live your life. For example your friend doesn’t expect you to be a just because your father is. They are not as emotionally invested in some idea of your perfect life, like your family might be. They do not make you do things you don’t like and encourage you and support you as long as you picked your friends wisely.

    As we grow up and leave home to step into the real world, we need the help from friends. Sometimes, friends can better understand us than our own family. When we are happy, they laugh with us. When we are in pain or just disappointed, they offer their shoulders. Therefore, friends are indispensable and more important in our life.

    Some people say friends arent trustable enough, or that family will always support you, but in my case, its a different story. My parents do support me, but we’ve grown apart so much that they are mostly not even relevant in my life. I hate saying that, but i guess thats the truth
