It is good for a woman to be financially independent in/ before marriage to reduce the financial burden of running a home/wedding on the man. Knowing the economic situation in Nigeria, even if a woman can't get a job a monthly paid job it is important that she learns a skill( become an entrepreneur) to add to what her husband brings to the table. Unless the hubby is very wealthy and ask her not to work, pays her equivalent of her earnings if she worked. Cikena grin

...
Nonsense write up every where
Being financially stable before marriage is a lie the society covers so much
Money is never a means to a happy life neither will it not provide you comfort to temporarily happiness
If only these ladies focus on developing thierself not just financially but mentally which to me is more important
Mentality sustains more marriage than money will ever do
Like someone cited money is and will always be a visitor
Many of them are just in need of finances in cash of bad marriage so at the end they are all already planning for bad marriages
No wonder many of them end up prayer warriors

A lady needs to be financially independent as not to become a liability to her husband. moreover, what financial independent means Is not entirely about having money but knowledge and home managerial skills as this are great wealth...
And by the way. LOVE concerns all.

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

Because he felt she was becoming too proud or because she became too proud? You’re twisting the story. Smh

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.


If you marry men like acidosis ,tv01/tv101 and LordKO no matter how rich you are they’ll try to subjugate you . Because their ego rests on your subservience to them .

Men like acidosis can’t thrive with a financially independent woman who has no need for his self acclaimed protection and provision.

As much as I lay emphasis on men having money, as a woman you must have your own. This doesn’t mean you’ll be paying rent and dashing your husband money anyhow. But just have your own for necessities and independence.

Saffia aka saffi take note.

I used to see some of your posts on the front page and you placed much emphasis on how you must depend on your husband or lover for everything,hopefully this thread is for you .

Your dignity is at stake if you allow your husband to do everything in the house .

Shut the hell up.

I always lay emphasis on men having money, yes. Providing for everything and making sure that the household is financially secure, yes. But I’ve never told women to be 100% dependent on a man. If you need to refresh your memory click on this thread
