I think a lot of people love their job. More than they love their own children and spouse. I've witnessed people disown their children, but that same person would not disown their employer (for far worse values). When you talk to middle-age people going through a divorce, often the thing they consider most important is their job stability and how important it is to pay for their lawyer and child custody battle. I scratch my head, as every child has lived through a marriage - the marriage of their parents - and the problem-solving they are educating to their children.

On the other hand, i also question if people have not altered the very meaning of the word "love" to mean something entirely different from a serious classical meaning.
