Money is not everything. Well, this saying doesn’t apply in today’s world anymore. As far as this century is concerned, it is believed that what money cannot do, more money can. Everyone wanna ball every Friday night in big clubs, rock ‘designers’, drive and use the latest, and more.
Making and spending ‘The Money’ is the main thing now. Since money is so paramount in every aspect of this life, it is no cliché to say it’s one of, if not the most important need for a successful relationship. It has gotten to a stage where money breed self-confidence.
Every responsible man’s joy is to be up to his task. To provide and cater well for those who depends on him. To a man, happiness is when his woman ask’s him for a quarter and he is able to give her a whole without any worries.
It is no news that what most 21st century ladies are looking for is ready-made boyfriend/husband. Expensive dinner dates, latest Buggati ride as a gift (Gosh! Girls love gifts), trips to Dubai, expensive gadgets and endless shopping.
So you are broke and you are complaining that you don’t have a girlfriend ehn! You keep saying all them Instagram ‘Slay Queen’ you are trying to link-up with are not giving you face? All the girls you meet seems to like money? Abeg, who suffering don epp? On a factual note, it is no one’s joy to go through hardship or lemme ask you, don’t you want to get rich? Of cause you do.
No responsible guy will want to see the woman he claims to love to wallow in poverty. How can you be living in the boys-quarter of your dad’s house and be thinking of proposing? How can you be living in a face-me-i-slap-you type of room with 10,000 Naira as a monthly salary and expect her to date you? Not in this century! Come to think of it, do you want to ‘manage’ all your life? Things will get better indeed, with more & more mouths to feed? Expected and unexpected responsibilities? Be realistic guy! It will only get worse.
Moreover, the girl has plans too. She wants her kids to have the best, use the best. She wants to live a comfortable life. She wants to marry and look like a real Madame, not someone who just got discharged from a hospital. Can’t you see how beautiful and flawless her skin is? Do you think she paid for her cream’s or various facials with sand? Beauty is not so cheap. Marriage has enough problems of its own, why add financial issues?
Relationship/Marriage is 10% love and 90% other things and financial stability is one of them. You don’t really need to have 2-3 cars (she would love that, though) but you need to be financially liquid enough before you can decide to add ‘extra mouths’ to your list.
