Getting married without having your own money is a big mistake – Doyin warns ladies

Reality TV star and podcast host, Doyinsola David, better known as Doyin, has advised ladies not to marry without having their own money.

She said the biggest mistake a young woman can make is to depend entirely on a man, emphasizing that their primary goal should be to attain financial independence.

The Big Brother Naija two-time housemate issued the warning in a social media post while agreeing with Linda Ikeji’s comment about the need for women to make their own money.

Doyin wrote; “The biggest mistake you can make as a young lady is depending completely on a man. Attaining independence should be the first thing on your mind….before love, marriage or kids. MONEY FIRST!

If you don’t have your own money, a reasonable amount of money saved up. You’re NOT ready for marriage and most definitely NOT ready to have kids. You need your own money!!

Even when you have your money sef, after marriage just have one child first and watch what type of father he is before you start giving birth like a chicken. Only have the number of kids you know you can afford to cater for on your own. Life happens!

Don’t ever believe that lie of divorce is not an option because it is! We don’t pray for it but life happens. There is no better back up plan than having your own money! Not your husband’s money, YOUR OWN MONEY!”
