Can’t emphasise the importance of a woman having her own money enough, even if your husband is ok with fully taking care of you, still have something you can fall back on.

It’s empowering, self fufilling, it brings independence, multiple streams of income won’t hurt the household, you’re less of a liability, if your guy falls on bad times you can step in and help, being entirely reliant on your guy can open doors for misbehaviour (cheating, abuse, etc)

There was a recent story of one peanut head Nigerian man who destroyed a business he helped his wife build because he felt she was becoming ‘too proud’. When you have your own, if things go wrong you will have more options

So many reasons

It's important for one to be financially independent before marriage because it is a sign of economic emancipation and responsibleness. However, it is even better to be resourceful, or to master the act of being resourceful, than to be financially independent, because money remains a visitor.

Also, pursuit of financial independence shouldn't be for the purpose to subjugate one's better half, or as a leverage to establish contention in the union. Money will always remain a means to an end but never an end itself. It never defines a sane person.

And if she did it to the man if he was getting too proud, should it also be written into law?

So you can walk away from the man if any bullshit,( i.e abuse of any kind) starts from him (before marriage) or anyone at all e.g in-laws.(after marriage, Allthough this has more to do with you having the mindset to walk away than having cash, because some rich women are abused or mistreated and still stay even though they have the money necessary to walk away.)

Also, Since it is money that controls Nigeria. Having your own money will help take your kids with you when you walk. (In the event that there are kids and you would like to walk away after marriage).

These are the only 2 reasons why it is important to have your own money.

Tooth paste, you beg for money.

Lip stick, you ask for money.

Unless that man is too cashed up. And naija economy No good again like before.

Even if your husband is rich, ask yourself if you want to be a liability or an asset!

The lady needs to be financially independent so as not to be a liability and also assist her husband financially too in her own little way ....
