Fact Two: Women Need to Prepare for Financial Independence
as much as Men Do:
days one does not hear so much about the "family breadwinner, "largely because
so many women either provide for themselves or make a substantial contribution
to the FAMILY INCOME. But what happens if your husband dies and his income dies
with him? Suddenly you are prevented from working. All to often the result is a
dramatic fall in the family's standard of living and in their quality of life.
And this happens just at the time creature comforts are most needed to soften
the blow. No amount of money can bring back a loved one, but quite small amounts
set aside regularly can make the difference between sadness and absolute despair
for you and your children. The only way to be sure you can cope is to do
something about it yourself-- to make sure you are adequately provided for.
Fact Three: Three out of Four Women have no Personal Savings.
Fact Four: Women live longer and so have a greater chance
of being left alone.
Fact Five: One Marriage in Three ends in Divorce,
Desertion, or Separation.
Fact Six: Thinking about what Might Happen Doesn't Make it
The Final Word
Hope this information has been helpful to you. Good luck*
"Believe in yourself and in your dream, Though impossible things may seem
Someday, somehow you'll get through To the goal you have in view. Mountains fall
and seas divide, Before the one who in his stride Takes a hard road by day
Sweeping obstacles away. Believe in yourself and in your plan Say not - I cannot
- I can The prizes of life we fail to win Because we doubt the power within..."
* "luck", as they say, is where preparedness (is there such a
word?) meets opportunity.
