Women and Their Money

When it comes to money women need to be able to handle their own.  They should know what they have coming in and what they have going out.  Being in charge of their money empowers women and can give them not just financial independence, but independence in general as well.

Women should never rely on someone to take care of them financially.  Some women think that this is okay, but if you think about it your financial future really is up in the air.  What if something happens to the person who is taking care of you financially, or what if something happens between the two of you?  You could lose everything and since you have not been taking care of finances yourself, you may not know what you are doing and end up in a lot of financial trouble.
Ladies, if you are in a relationship and your man does not pay his fair share then you need to reconsider your relationship.  Do you always want to be paying his way?  There is a good chance that he is not going to change anytime soon and maybe not even farther done the road.  It is not a good idea to stay with someone who will bring you down financially.  You have to worry about your own finances and if someone is bringing your finances down, it will make that much, much harder.
You should embrace frugal living; even if that means you have to cut back on shopping.  Most women love to shop, but when you are watching your own finances you must watch what you spend.  Having a budget will help you with this.  Find new ways that you can save money in your everyday life.  Challenge your friends to come up with new ways to save money.
Even if you are married you should still be involved with the finances.  Many women will allow their husband to take care of the finances while they take care of other things.  This is not a good idea.  In the event that something were to happen to the marriage or to their spouse, most women would then not be able to handle the family finances as they do not know how they were handled before.
Women, you should always know what is going on in the world of your finances.  It does not matter if you are single, married, have children, or no children.  There is no excuse to not know what is going on.  If you need help understanding your finances or getting them under control there are professionals out there that you can turn to for help.  You can even turn to loved ones for help if you are comfortable doing that.  Women need to be in control of their finances and never let anyone come between them and their money.
