How important is financial security in a relationship?

In today’s fast growing economy, the standard of living is soaring. If one wants to sustain a good lifestyle which includes family functions, social gatherings, shopping, vacations, raising kids and other leisurely activities, financial stability is must. Financial security brings independence and with independence, one can feel confident and secure. But as a woman, I strongly believe that the pressure of being financially sound is not applicable only to men. We women need to be if not more at least equally stable. Financial dependency on men shouldn’t come naturally as we have been pre-conditioned to believe. For me, if I expect my husband to be financially sound, I first need to be financially secure myself.  I am not marrying someone to become a burden but rather share that burden by being just as stable.
