Whoever invented 'time is money' forgot that 'time is relationship' too.
As loosing time to do good work is loosing potential earning so about practicing communication and affection: do not waste an opportunity to spend quality time with your partner. Most of us nowadays are juggling up between different responsibilities of career and home. No doubt, career is also important but you need to make a balance here. Rather than spending time with family too many of us are putting in more efforts in career. There are always exceptions in regards to career demands but a Workaholic person is identified as such by the length and continuation of these 'exceptional job demand' phases. The general trend is well predicted: career prioritizing over long time leads your partner to develop feelings of neglect, lack of communication, depression and many other problems.
