The debate over career and keeping the home may never end, as people would always support that which is favorable to them. The big question has always been, ‘how can one balance the two?’

This argument concerns mostly the women. How can a mother keep her home and still be at the peak of her career?

Comic star, Sarah Silverman does not believe in balancing the, she chose one; her career. The American actress, writer, and stand-up comedian, wrote in her tweet, that in deciding between motherhood and career, she chose career. According to Sarah, she wants to live life to the fullest.

In her tweet, she wrote, “As a comic always working and on the road I have had to decide between motherhood and living my fullest life and I chose the latter. Men don’t have to do that. I’d so love to be a fun dad, coming home from the road and being my best fun dad self.”

According to Sarah, you can’t be a woman without sacrifice, and this sacrifice may mean choosing to be a full time mother or a career woman. She said, “So this is just a little f–k all y’all because you can’t be a woman without sacrifice and that’s the fact jack.”

The comic star who calls her comedian brothers family, wrote in another tweet to her 10 million followers, “They are my family, and for a lot of us women comic sisters, our only family.” Referring to the men in the comic world.

Sarah’s view was however opposed by a mother, Ada Slivinski who retweeted Sarah. Ada, a columnist wrote in her tweet, “Becoming a mother has filled my life more than I could have ever imagined. Filled it in ways a career alone never could have.”

Sarah in a swift response to Ada Slivinski, tweeted, “That’s beautiful, Ada! Living my fullest life is different than u living yours is all. I’m just talking about me and people like me.”

From this, we can see that the debate on children and career depends significantly on personal interest.
