Why Financial Independence is Necessary as a Woman

We all know the statistics and we see it around us every single day, more and more promising and talented women end up giving up their education or get a degree and then settle down without ever making any use of it. It is a sad reality because the degree just adds on to the list of achievements to make a promising resume not for a job, but rather for prospective marriage proposals. I am not saying that we take pitchforks, take to the streets and rebel against the very institution of marriage, far from it.

It is important to become financially independent and to get working experience since it exposes you to a completely different environment and you then end up meeting new people as well. This helps you to adapt to changing situations as well as working under high pressure situations under deadlines and unreasonable demands. Plus, once you get your first paycheck, you really begin to learn and appreciate the value of money. This helps you make more reasonable decisions the next time the thought of splurging unnecessarily goes through your head.

Marriage is a tough situation and not everyone gets the privilege to continue their jobs after marriage. This is where you take on a home based job for your own benefit. You can find numerous home based Pakistani jobs that pay well. The money you earn can be added to a savings account for numerous reasons like pitching in on vacations or contributing in the household. In some cases, this money can help you in worst-case scenarios. A lot of women are unable to get out of a bad marriage because they lack the financial means to support themselves, being financially independent allows you to make smarter decisions and to get out a bad situation before it ruins you.
