Would you choose love over career?
    NEW YORK, NY, Jan. 26 /CNW/ - The age old question of choosing a career over love is one faced by millions of couples the world over. Based on this common scenario, Date.com, a leading online dating site, posed this question to its members: Maria Shriver is considering 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 you love?
    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," she added.
    This poll generated 1609 respondents.
    Date.com, "the new way to date," was launched on Valentine's Day 1997.
Date.com has more than two million male and female members worldwide who come to the site because it offers a convenient and safe way for singles to meet.
The site is adding new members at a rate of 200,000 per month and has hundreds of success stories. Date.com is headquartered in New York.
