Whenever marriage is mentioned to single people, there is a popular response that is given, and it always has to do with the word ‘money‘. Once you have that marriage talk, the first thing that you hear people give as their reason for unpreparedness, even apart from their relationship status are words about how much money they must have made first before marriage can even be considered. You hear statements like “There’s no love in the world, there’s only money”, “No money, no love”, “I must make enough money to be able to sustain my family”, “I must have all the cars and houses first, before I get married”, “I don’t intend to be spending my husband’s money, I must make enough of my own before I get married”, “I’m not willing to let my wife suffer with me, when I make all the money, I’ll get married to her”, “I can’t marry a man that is still struggling”. It goes on and on!
So single people, let’s be real. How much do you aim to have in your bank account the day before your wedding day? I know most guys know the bulk of work is on them, because being the man means the woman must move in with you. For some even the cost of having a wedding is scary enough, not to now think of the marriage. Women nowadays though, are taking their financial freedom seriously, and are pretty independent too. So guys, how much would you want to have in your bank account before your wedding day? How much do you expect that your woman should have too? Ladies, how much would you like to have in your bank account, and how much do you think your man should have in his? Let’s talk figures. Someone I recently asked said nothing less than10 million naira in his bank account. What about you? Do you feel having just enough to survive on is fine? How much is enough? Or you prefer to have certain property before marriage?
Please share. Let’s discuss. Don’t forget to comment.
