Shouldn't they come first before his parents and siblings?

A friend of mine is single with no children and younger than me said that his parents and such should come first. I said no, when a man has a family, the wife and children come first because that is his main priority and family. I told her that if a man puts his parents and siblings first, he is setting himself up for divorce.

Do you agree?

Spouse and children come first. I can't picture a marriage working out any other way.

I don't see why anyone has to come first necessarily.

I agree to an extent. If a sibling is having a hard time, be there for them...it's family...but take care of your family too.

I agree. My df's family also agrees. When they realized we were in it for the long haul and then even more so when I got pregnant, me and the baby are his family now. We come first.
