Money is not everything but you should consider money before getting married.
In my country, a wife should responsible for the husband act. The husband has corruptted the company tax that supposedly pay for the government. He saves the money to luxorious house, luxorious car, and other investment.
Before marrying, a woman should ask some question to the husband candidate. Here is the question:
1. How much money that you spouse have?
Has he enough money? Can he pay the living cost
A man supposedly can fulfill the family necessity.The amount of living cost depent on where you live. In my country, some a family without child can live under $100 a month. How about your region?
2. Where does he get the money?
It is very important. Most woman does not want a criminal to fund their live unless the criminal woman. Most people get money from paycheck or salary. They get it every month from the company that employ them. Some company pay base ont the employee skill and knowledge. For the level manager, they get more money than common employee.
Some people can get money from the side jobs. They work after arriving home. The side jobs can help them to reach wealth. The employee whose has more than one source income is better than one source income employee.
3. Where the money save?
Most people save the money in account or cash box. They save the money for the future. They need the money to finance the kid education.
Not all people saves the money at bank. Some people prefer to buy the real asset because it is real. We do not have to worry to the decreases value.
Some asset also can generate money too such as real estate, crop, plantation, building, and others. We can hire the asset to other people in order to get more money.
4. For what the money?
What for your spouse spend money? Does he extravagant in spending that erode his money. Buying something that actually he does not need it. In East culture, a man should responsible either his familiy and his brother and sister. The first child often assist the paren to finance the brother and the sister education. That is why some man is late to marry the girl.
If the spending is higher than the income, the man must be bankrupt. He cannot pay the familiy living costs.
In selecting a spouse, you should not judge from the money only. However, a man supposedly can finance his family and not dependant from the parent, the brother and other people.
