Women Online Reveal If They Would Marry A Man With No Source Of Income Or A Job

Because the idea of a woman being financially independent and having a job which requires her to leave the four walls of her home is something that has taken our patriarchal society a long time to accept, women have been dependent on men for generations. Our society’s idea, still is, that a man should be the sole breadwinner of the family while the woman should be the caregiver.

However, in today’s day and age, it is crucial for both partners to have a steady income and a stable job if they want to live a comfortable life. Putting the onus on any one person is too much pressure. This is aside from the fact that everyone, irrespective of gender, must be financially independent.
