How likely are you to leave a bad marriage if you have no education or poor career prospects? I realize there may be other factors such as children, years put into the marriage and each party’s willingness to work things out.
But let’s put that aside for the moment.
I have always always said that I wouldn’t want a lack of education or financial viability without my husband to stop me from leaving should things go sour. While I value the sanctity of marriage, my sanity comes above all else and if it’s bad, I have to go. God forbid I ever get to a point where I want out, I don’t want my future to be dependent on a random divorce settlement arbitrarily determined by a judge.
If you’ve been keeping up with me on Twitter, then you know I watched the movie This Christmas at least 3 times this weekend LOL I had no idea it was that good! But a few scenes caught my eye and I immediately thought of this post because this is a message I want to drive home to women. Do not let your lack of career prospects or financial viability without your husband stop you from leaving a bad situation. If this is the case then get in a position where you have options. This also happens to be the central message of this blog, teaching women how to take charge of their finances so they are able to make decisions not bound by financial limitations.
Please dont stay in a bad situation because you feel that you can’t make it on your own.
But I realize there are women who feel this way and I’d like to hear from you. If you are or were in this situation, what drives your decision outside of love and children to stay? We are having a discussion about this on Twitter so feel free to jump in:
