Finance play a very strong and vital role in a relationship between man and wife.
Financial independence is paramount. My mom always says that when a woman is financially independent, she has the ability to live life on her own terms. I think that was the soundest advice that I ever got. No matter where you go in life or who you get married to, you have to be financially independent – whether you use it or not.
I’m not talking about showering your spouse with riches after marriage. I am talking about supporting your spouse in making his or her own money in addition to contributing to family’s wealth.

As much as men have dreams and feel fulfilled when they are accomplished or are able to reach the hight they have always desired to attain , so does a women have dreams too. The same joy a man feels when providing for his family, building, funding projects; the woman should feel that too. Just like a man, when a woman does her dream job, see her dreams come through , earns money and contributes to her family and society; she feels more confident and good about her self with dignity.
