i have read "the long version of the story" first and then i have posted....

finally no one than yourself will know the "right" answer...

If you ask me, love goes always first, then a while nothing, then may be money.

Kind of a sad story , though I think you might actually regret it more to leave your kids behind and thats what youre thinking.

As for the original question i would say love but since it involves your kids its not really about the money here only.

It does seem that the question here is not love or money, but love or love. The love of and for your children is unconditional, but the love of a partner is always conditional. It may seem that this girl is the love of your life but, honestly, how many times have you said that?

If you stay in the US how often can you see your kids? How much of their growing up will you miss? How many 'firsts'? And how often could you visit if in Saudi?

We are all different - but for me, I would rather be near my kid than half a planet away.

Know it's easy to say as an outsider, but there will be other girls - but your kids are for life.

I would take some sleeping pills, get some good sleep before I make any decision, if I were you. It's easy to be an outsider and say "I choose money" or "I choose love", right?

About love, we all fall in love more than once in our life time. Even when we hurt so bad from love and we think we will never ever love anyone again. Then oneday, we love again and again. Love is amusing, isn't it?

About money, many of us have short period of time to make money, like what? 15-25 years? Good job offer or good business opportunity is unlikely to knock on your door twice.

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy a big yacht. ;)

well when I have a quandry in life and decisions to make -- I sit down write them down on paper look at them and prioritze them If you do this mentally your conscience will talk you into or out of a decision -- doing this gives me not only perspective but helps my gut feeling out -- I agree with iain they all are loves....love of your kids -- love of your love -- love of money..when you love something it is very hard to let it go I think that is probably why it is so tough. sorry, I don't have a choice for ya..but good luck on yours

i have only told 3 women i love them during this life.

this girl is number 3 of those that i have let get close to me.

i make good money now but even then i would only be able to see my girls once or maybe twice a year.33 hours of travel now

i will make almost 3 times what i make in saudi and only be 10 hours from my angels and be able to see them a lot more then 2 times a year. their colleges will be paid for in a few years working like this.

the decision is simple the money and my little girls. they come first

but i still love the girl here ...................it hurts

I work all night, I work all day, to pay the bills I have to pay

Ain't it sad

And still there never seems to be a single penny left for me

That's too bad

In my dreams I have a plan

If I got me a wealthy man

I wouldn't have to work at all, I'd fool around and have a ball

Money, money, money

Must be funny

In the rich man's world

Money, money, money

Always sunny

In the rich man's world


All the things I could do

If I had a little money

It's a rich man's world

my mom gave up 10 years of her life to raise me with out a man in her life

the least i can do is give up this small portion of my life to be a little bit bigger
