Not necessarily. Bros with wives/kids last longer than single bros, for sure.

I dunno. They don't seem to mind the long hours as much (gets them away from their family). And they need the money more. It's a lot different providing for other people. Seems like single guys have a lot more to lose slaving away in biglaw.

Having kids in particular gets you in a sacrificial state of mind. You live for them more than yourself, which helps you put up with biglaw grind.

Yeah but presumably you also want to see them. Not making output for a booze brunch on a sunday is probably a bit less emotionally taxing than not getting to see your child on the weekend.

seems credited. the prospect of scrounging for a shitlaw job to support your family and then working that job indefinitely would put the fear in me too.
