So I had a couple of friends come over to my place this weekend, it was gradually becoming a tradition because we get to catch up on gist topics during the week, played card games and the loser drinks it all.
Is relationship all about finance?
Read and share your opinions in the comment section below
I found myself looking forward to these meetings because it took my mind off work stress and made me forget about my worries at that moment. While listening and laughing at some silly comments by my friends.
Tola raised a controversial topic about her colleague who broke up with her boyfriend because she felt he was stingy and did not care about her welfare according to Tola the lady claimed that her boyfriend never gave her upkeep money this brought us to the question if it was the responsibility of the man to give his woman monthly allowance?
A friend of mine, Laura said it is not necessary he gives her money monthly but he should be able to spend on her once in awhile else he should not take the glory for taking care of her whenever his friends complimented her look in an occasion or event.
We all laughed at her comments but many of us agreed with her especially the female folks. Another friend of mine, Austin said he will not date an undergraduate because he likes his relationship to be based on love and companionship and if she needed financial support he will do. Furthermore, he cannot give her monthly allowance also he knows that it’s his responsibility to take care of his woman. Well what do you think?
Relationships are essential in every society and it is believed to be the bedrock of the society but we cannot hide the fact that relationships cannot do without finance. In fact, money is one of the basis in relationships today though it is not publicly mentioned we tend to dwell on love, understanding,God fearing e.t.c The truth is a relationship is meant to be a partnership where both parties love, understand, support each other morally and financially.
Will you agree with me that relationship without activity is like going to the exam hall without a pen? On different occasions we will like to go out have fun, hang out and maybe just go to an eatery, it is okay for the lady to offer to foot the bill there’s nothing wrong with that, not every time the man foots the bill once in awhile, when you do that, the man respects you more and it shows that you are a woman who can stand on her own.
Men love women who can be emotionally and financially independent it gives them this confidence and pride in you.
Furthermore, men should not neglect their women whether married or single it is his sole responsibility to protect, provide and profess to his woman and if he is not doing this there’s a problem somewhere. It is either he does not know his responsibility or he is neglecting them.
Now, this does not mean he has turned to your bank alert. He can support you and vice-versa financially and morally this should not mean it’s only when the woman asks for assistance that you help, sometimes surprise her and such a woman will love and cherish you more.
Finally, Relationship should not be based on finance you should look out for companionship and love. If you must get into a relationship with a man or woman you should be capable of taking care of you first before you think of loving and supporting someone else, these things count besides it makes your partner value and respects you.
I will love to see your opinions about finance and relationship in the comment box.
