Wives: Stop Leaving Money Management to Your Spousehttps://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2020-11-14/personal-finance-advice-for-women-avoiding-money-in-marriage?sref=bvdKdTbB
A recent study from UBS: found that nearly half of the women — led by Millennials oddly — defer major financial and investment decisions to their male spouses.It broke my heart as it seems to convey that women are bad with money? Personally, I obviously disagree but I have also seen way too many instances of women not actively taking part in financial decisions. I cannot comment on peoples' decisions on who does what but personally being financially independent and aware is extremely uplifting. I cannot even begin to imagine myself in a relationship in which I don't have a say in our finances, our investments etc. That said, I also know that taking a step to learn about (personal) finance or money management can be very overwhelming which is why I want to shout out all the amazing Elphas in the world of personal finance, working towards enabling more women to feel comfortable with their finances! If you are one of them, I'd love for you to comment and introduce yourself - who knows someone here might need your support? Lastly, I am aware that through this post I am leaving aside a pretty significant segment of the population: same-sex couples. That's why I would love to hear your experiences (negative or positive) - assuming you are comfortable sharing!
