I agree it does have its boundaries, but those would with a man with no drive. But then why would I marry a man with no drive. I would rather struggle with my husband and make it together then to walk into a marriage unevenly yoked.

Women of course don't want a man with nothing, that is a woman that has something. Most of us women work our buts off now adays and therefore we want to be evenly yoked with a man that is also working and saving and take care of himself. We don't just quit our jobs the next day and lay around the house. After the wedding we work and build our life and the life for our family together.

I get sick and tired of hearing men say that women just use their money on themselves, not a real woman. In a real marriage both parties contribute to the upkeep of the home. How else do you suspect we will have all we have. A husband and wife can get so much farther with two incomes vs one.

for me 2 hearts in love, and with good prospect for the future can get married with a zero account balance. cos its only love that can survive all the many problems marriage bring. money can come and go, then you get to know the real person you married.

but if you really want a figure, 500,000 naira is a very strong platform to start from.

no matter how civilized the world is, women will still forever wanna be with a man that cld take care of all things, and they anna use thir own money to relax and paint nails, infact, if the man can even pay for that as well, they will be glad.

it is a very good point.

some churches in nigeria now draw out the requirements a man must meet to put a woman in his house.

how can one stroll blindly into marriage without a good financial support? women can be very selfish.

marry me, marry me and when the guy does without a solid financial base, cat-fights and name calling starts.

Not all girls are after MONEY

i think we live in more civilised world now, so i think woman too should have financial responsibilities in their marriage not just the guy

just make sure that you have enough so in case you go over budget, you won't be going crazy and worrying about life after marriage. but all in all, use common sense.

this is what women tell us before the wedding.

after getting married, they start sleeping with men to balance up the accounts.

if a man is not financially strong, delay your wedding. don't let your spouse rush you into marriage that is bound to brew problems.

I will say, do the calculation of how many people you wanna invite for the wedding party, make sure yu have the money to sustain the wedding, then, u need to have an extra enuf money to take care of your bills for another few months, and enuf to sustain your family and ur new family as well for some months.

So the cost of the wedding and extra 300K naira shd be aiight, but pls, this is based on if you have a good salary oh
