How Much Money Should a Man Have Before He Gets Married?

Written by Pynk360

How much money should a man have before getting married? If you are a man, what basic financial requirements have you set for yourself before you decide to propose and cater to a wife? Women, how much money is enough?

I am asking this question, because it is apparent that finances are one of the most important things to people. It’s OK to discuss this matter in terms of earnings, savings, assets – houses/buildings etc.

We all say finances are important, but finances are determined by the expected quality of life no? Because I am sure some people would do fine with a Banker’s lifestyle across the spectrum, while others would be looking for ‘Dangote’ money. Or maybe, I should ask how much a man should earn annually before proposing marriage? But then, even a job is not guaranteed, so what gives?

If you are not married and plan on getting married, how much should a man earn, independent of you, to propose to you? What is the minimum annual salary you would be comfortable with?

Some days I realise I don’t care about money, and there are days where I am like I need that holiday man! This last week, I have been electricity-less for about 2 days, and I frankly cannot imagine that being my life on a daily basis. I need at least a few hours of light a day. I don’t mind managing, but managing in perpetuity is disturbing to me as a person.

In current day, I believe  N15million  to N20million annually in household income can keep me comfortable, but of course the more the better.

So how much is enough? Please share.

    For me, he needs to have a steady and well paying job, and at least 2 to 3 million in savings. We’ll grow it from there.
