    Financially Independent Women

    What is your opinion on this topic? Do you believe a woman should be financially independent, or should she depend on her man?

    The percentage of women who are considered financially self-supporting rose from 39% to almost 45% between 2000 and 2007.

    Some 70% of men are financially-independent, a figure unchanged since 2000, the national statistics office CBS said.

    As a single mother, I have no other option than to be financially independent. I can't sit around and wait for a man to provide. Last time I did that, I got burned. Relationships are not what they used to be anymore. There is far less responsibility. I'd love to be a stay at home mother and dedicate my time to my son only, but money doesn't fall out of the sky.

    Something like this:

    I believe a woman should have some savings to get past the worst, in case she is abandoned, but she should not focus on money earning.

    But I'm think it's applicable only in marriage or long term relationship where the bonds are strong.
    The future can't be predicted.
    None of us want to wake up with empty pocket.
    But it also depends if the woman have familial support.
    Then she could get past an abandon easier.

    It is good if they are, but they should not succumb their motherly duties to the acquiring of welath for this sole purpose.

    I feel that women who do not have children should try to make enough money to support themselves and to save for when they do have children. Women with children, however, should never work to a point that they are not tending to the children enough. Money is never worth a neglected child. Remember, when you raise a child, you are creating a person, who's going to have to get along in society. This child could be a revolutionary scientist, philosopher or politician. They could change the world. It is a great responsibility, and should never be surpassed by the desire for money, which will most likely only be spent on animalistic needs or unnecessary luxuries.

    Hmm, I'd say yes, at least until marriage. Because you're never sure when you'll need the money to support yourself. But if the relationship becomes serious followed by marriage, then it's not as necessary anymore in my view. But there's a danger, women becoming totally dependent on their man, and being left out of the blue. It would be very difficult to go through that. So in my view, at least some savings for "black days" should be there.

    I loathe the idea of needing a man to support me if no specific need calls for it.

    I am young, healthy and perfectly capable of working and supporting myself: why take money from someone else?

    If I get pregnant then of course I will take a leave or quit my job and stay at home for as long as it takes. This is the time when the man is expected to contribute, but I will also use my own savings.

    To sum it all up, I voted for the third option. I love to work and love being independent, but I am neither a workaholic, not a career woman, and my life doesn't revolve around cash. It's all about priorities

    It depends on the reason for her being independent, if she's working and earning money to help provide for the family because both parties know that job security isn't what it used to be, then I do not see anything wrong with it. But if this desire for economical independence is caused by a fear of being abandoned by her husband, then that is nothing short of a tragedy. Unfortunately it is a fear which is justified these days. In my ideal world however, I would be able to provide for my (future) family with my income alone and my wife would be able to perform her role of a housewife knowing that I will stand by her and our children till death do us part, as it used to be.

    Equal Relationships

    One or 10 men or women can raise a well rounded child. With co-operation and equality it makes for a more peaceful and understanding environment and isn't that the point?

    At the risk of getting lynched:

    I could never imagine myself not being financially independent. Luckily, I have encountered a man that has realized that my mentality is far more suited to being the hard-working provider than the provided-for housewife.
