To say that ALL men put work before family is a fallacy. All men do not do anything. Do some men put work before family? Yes. Do many men put work before family? Sure. Do most men put work before family? Perhaps in the past, but in general, it seems that men put keeping their family fed and under a roof before spending quality time with them. These are the sacrifices you have to make sometimes.
I think men do get confused and forget sometimes that they are working for the family that they need to make time for. However, there are a lot of women and children who do demand much in the way of both basics and luxuries, and I think many men feel the pressure.
