UFEDO95:
Good evening everyone, pls I will need our sincere contributions and ideas about this topic.let's share perceptions, stories and experience to help educate,enlighten and empower our Ladies. thank you my people.
For MARRIAGE:
BETTER go for a LADY that is financially stable, yet not too beautiful than a PRETTY SERPENT that has nothing to offer beyond sit at home and SEXX.

HUNGER looms
Avoid problems, don’t expect GOD to rush to your aid when the chips are down. No be only you GOD carry for mind.
When you end up with a MISS WORLD that is redundant and lazy, few weeks after marriage, you will never see that beauty again.
She will mean nothing to you.
In fact she will be the one begging you to come and phuck.
My BROTHER, a hungry man can never satisfy a lady even if he takes a carton of viagra

Before I got married I had more than 23 LADIES around me. They surrounded me because I have always engaged myself meaningfully.
If I were stupid or LAZY, you will never find them around me.
LADIES do not invest in bad markets especially when ready for marriage.
I ended up with the wealthiest in cash, savings and reasoning with so much love to shower me, yet not as beautiful as most of them..

Most women have very little emotional quotient/intelligence to control weight and still remain obedient/submissive.

They fair poorly in handling power...

It is very important for any human being male or female to have some level of financial muscle. Apart of the confidence it confers on the woman, it will also help your peace of mind brother whether she has it before marriage or during. Remember wisdom is a defense and money is a defense. Ecc 7v12.

The answer can be yes or no depending on the two parties. When some man enters a relationship with the mentality of being the boss and having a “ submissive” wife, it becomes a problem when the woman is either financially independent or not. When some woman enters a relationship with an equality mindset and feels a man wants to subdue her, it becomes a problem when she is. Visit the circle of the illiterates and the lower class, there are a few things one can learn from them as it concerns marriage. It’s about the mindset of the two parties. Personally, I support my partner in her endeavors, not because I want to get from her or because she doesn’t want to be “submissive” but I believe we are one. As she grows I grow too.

You couldn't have said it any better. I am who I am because of my mom. The patrichal system especially in the west is a failed one.only few men take care of their children without being polygamous. I am tolling my mom's line. Infacr, I have thought of having my own house before getting married anyhow I must be independent so help me God.
ibkayee:
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

Audacious19:
...
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
But, why are you angry?
You made sense but your write up is kind of out of context.
We know mental development is more important than financial development ,but that's not even the question or topic of discussion. Which one is " no wonder many of them end up prayer warriors"?.
